mHealth at the center of CTIA Wireless 2010

Mobile Health (mHealth) is expected to be on the radar at the coming CTIA Wireless 2010 exhibition which will open on March 23 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The event organizers said that wireless solutions for wellness, fitness, healthcare services, remote diagnostics, and telemedicine will be a major theme at the International CTIA Wireless 2010.

More than 1,000 exhibitors and tens of thousands of spectators are expected to come to the show, which will celebrate its 25th anniversary. An article published by British Newspaper The Independent notes that one of the biggest trends to watch will be wireless solutions for wellness.

"Innovations in wireless are influencing all aspects of our lives. The convergence of healthcare and mobile technologies has the potential to change the lives of individuals and to contribute to better care, healthier choices and increased quality of life," said Robert Mesirow, vice president and show director for CTIA. "Opportunities in mHealth are growing every day."

The growing interest in mHealth solutions at the CITA follows the attention the industry has received at the 2010 GSMA Mobile World Congress (MWC) that was held in February in Barcelona, Spain.
