Kay-Eron-Mobility   A Q&A With Dr. Mark Blatt by Kay Eron   Mobile technology and its potential impact on healthcare is a hot topic, and for good reason. With new sensors, medical devices and end-to-end solutions constantly being unveiled as the “next big thing,” the growing focus on technology is understandable. While mobile technology is key to improving anytime, anywhere access to care and reducing costs, personalized care, better patient outcomes and a new model of care will always rely on a personal and collaborative relationship between doctor and patient. Recently, I sat down with Dr. Mark Blatt, a family physician and early adopter of technology prior to becoming Intel’s Worldwide Medical Director, to get his unique perspective on mobile device innovation, the patient-doctor experience and the potential impact on a new model of care.

Managing this transition in a cost-effective and efficient manner has placed greater demands and expectations on emerging technologies and mobile health solutions to help improve clinical performance, care coordination and remote access to patients throughout the entire continuum.
