2:00 PM INTERACTIVE SESSION - Panel Discussion: Emerging Apps that are Disrupting and Enabling General Practice
With 79% of all Australians own a smartphone, while six out of 10 Australian mobile consumers own multiple mobile devices, the possibilities presented by mobile health are exciting, but care must be taken when implementing it in general practice.
This panel will discuss:
- Innovative mobile health solutions that are transforming the way GPs manage patients with chronic disease, including self-care monitoring, self-education and fitness apps/ wearables
- The privacy breach debate: How much of our privacy are we willing to give up for apps that lack scientific validation?
- Whether apps are improving clinical health outcomes, with examples of international best practice for health management apps from the US
