SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) West today highlights its three-day comprehensive medtech education program coming to Anaheim in February 2016, including two distinct tracks dedicated to the most cutting edge trends in medical product development and manufacturing.

According to SMS Research, the global mHealth market is projected to account for nearly $13 billion in 2015 alone. In this increasingly saturated space, regulation, privacy and funding issues rank as top barriers for developers to create effective and profitable devices. On Wednesday, February 10, MD&M West's full-day conference track, 360 Degrees of Mobile Health Success, will dive into the secrets behind the success of connected and wearable devices, including real-world case studies.

Discussion Panel: Working Around the User, Technical, Financial, and Regulatory Barriers for Connected Health

The day will begin with a featured panel that explores how contextualization and curation of data improves device adoption. Panelists will address privacy concerns in the mobile marketplace (including HIPAA compliance), as well as how to harness the power of mobile connectivity to improve population health and patient outcomes – all while controlling costs. Moderated by Dietrich Kappe, Chief Operating Officer, Pathfinder Software, panelists include: 

  • Morgan Reed, Executive Director, ACT | The App Association
  • Alan Portela, CEO, AirStrip
  • Craig Scherer, Co-Founder and Senior Partner, Insight Product Development
