About the Panel: This panel discussed the potential for mHealth in an evolving healthcare context in the U.S., with a particular focus on the role that mHealth approaches may have in healthcare delivery systems which integrate physical and behavioral healthcare. The panel also discussed models for deploying mHealth tools in healthcare systems to increase the quality and reach of evidence-based behavioral healthcare while reducing costs. The pros and cons of mHealth apps used with clinical populations (in alliance with healthcare systems) and for wellness promotion/quantified self also were debated.
