MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- When the American Academy of Dermatology hosts its 2012 Summer Academy on August 15-19 in Boston, attending health care professionals will be introduced to cutting-edge, mobile health solutions that can help them stay connected to their patients, while improving compliance with individual care plans.
These mobile health solutions will be exhibited by Preventice at Booth #906 during the 2012 Summer Academy in Boston. More than 1,200 dermatology and health care professionals are expected to attend.
Mobile health technology on the rise in health care
Mobile technologies are reshaping the way health care is delivered and how patients engage with the health care system. According to an industry survey by CompTIA, more than 50 percent of health care professionals currently use a smartphone for work purposes, while 25 percent use tablets. Those numbers are expected to increase as more clinic systems adopt mobile platforms. Likewise, according to a survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers, 46 percent of patients believe mobile health offers convenient access to their doctors, along with the potential to reduce their personal health care costs.
