Smartphones and tablets are the current obsession, but there have also been technological breakthroughs in health care. New mobile devices and apps have the potential to radically change the way patients interact with their doctors and give people the power to monitor their health in new ways.
Lark talks about the brave new world of mobile health care with experts including Reed Tuckson, M.D., chief of medical affairs for the UnitedHealth Group insurance company; Eric Topol, M.D., formerly of the Cleveland Clinic; and Joseph Smith, M.D., chief medical science officer at the West Wireless Health Institute, a nonprofit research group in La Jolla, Calif.
