What Goes Into Making an Extraordinary mHeath App?
As a part of the mHealth Summit Technology Trends track, on Wednesday, December 5 from 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM, Involution Studios Creative Director Juhan Sonin will join a distinguished panel including David Lee Scher, Senior Medical Advisor at Happtique; Anne Giles Clelland, President, CEO and Founder of Handshake Media; Barbara Spanton, Senior UX Designer at Macadamian; and David Windhausen, Senior Vice President of Intouch Solutions to discuss, "What Goes Into Making an Extraordinary mHealth App?".

Technology provides meaningful clinical tools through new mobile devices, apps, sensors, 24/7 monitoring and the cloud. All the innovation that we currently have access to, coupled with the impending data deluge, filtering and analytics are driving transformation across mHealth and the greater healthcare delivery landscape. In this emerging environment, mobile health and medical applications are expected to be big business. What makes an app successful, and what are industry best practices? This session will discuss design elements including: usability, certification, marketing, and collaboration across the ecosystem.
