Apps and Better Medical Outcomes: Real Solutions

Saturday, March 12
11:00AM - 12:00PM

JW Marriott
Room 201-202
110 E 2nd St

Nearly 14.5 million children in the US suffer from chronic illnesses. These children battle not only with their health, but also struggle to keep up with school as long-term hospitalization leads to loss of school days and negative educational outcomes. The use of mobile devices and apps has been shown to help children and adults cope with hospitalization and illness management, reduce difficulties during school/job re-entry and improve long-term physical, social and educational outcomes.

Our panel will discuss cutting edge mobile solutions that help with communication among caregivers, educational or job re-entry, organization of medical records and independence.
