This week I’m at the mHealth Summit, an event bringing together research (academic), technology (business), and policy (NGOs and government). On Tuesday (November 9) I’ll be on the panel, Validation and Practical Deployment of Wireless Health, at 11:30 (Room 102 A & B). I’ll be touching on the differences between verification and validation testing, and the challenges of simulated validation testing. The panel will be discussing what constitutes sufficient objective evidence for validation testing and different approaches to validation from both a technical, clinical and business perspectives.
The event is just kicking off as I’m writing this (loud techno music before the speakers come up to the podium). Focus is squarely on wireless broadband (cell phones) offering ubiquitous connectivity. Applications discussed provide education, diagnostics, therapy delivery and monitoring.
The Twitter hash for this conference is #mhs10. The opening keynote is being held in a full ballroom at the Washington DC Convention Center. There are an estimated couple thousand attendees– I’ll provide an official number later.Read More
