Conference Chairman

Dear Colleagues,
Welcome to the 1st Middle East Conference on Telemedicine & mHealth with the theme
"A Paradigm Shift in Healthcare" on April 15,2014 at Adu Dhabi.

As technology continues to redefine the way healthcare is delivered and managed, we are organizing this event in Abu Dhabi with the aim to bring together all major stakeholders of the eHealth ecosystem from within the Gulf states as well as globally to network, share best practices & show case innovative solutions in Telemedicine and mHealth during relevant sessions and at the concurrent exhibition.

With the recent advancements in mobile technology; clarity of regulations and standards; sufficient evidence behind Telemedicine and mHealth; and the ever increasing lifestyle-based chronic disease burden, it is vital that these tools are used effectively for better healthcare outcomes.

In order to make this event as objective and productive as possible, we plan to conduct meaningful discussions which lead to practical solutions for the region. We are also organizing an exhibition where you will be able to witness and experience how technology is changing the lives for the better.

Being cognizant of the fact that Telemedicine and mHealth are all about facilitating patient centric healthcare, we plan to cover relevant topics for discussion and deliberation and assure our participants of a full day of learning and useful networking.

I look forward to welcome you all to this premier Telemedicine and mHealth event of the region.
