Mobile & Digital Innovation for Health
This is no ordinary event - come join members of the healthcare and mobile technology industries for a day of sharing insights & inspiration, generating ideas, and developing them further in ad-hoc teams.
Put those ideas in action! – teams and working groups are encouraged to form around the ideas generated at the event, and we’ll be supporting you in developing those ideas further beyond the event – with the goal of implementing them or launching them to market.
The event is fluid in nature – there is a basic structure in place, but the direction will largely be driven by you. Topics for workshops will be decided on the day depending on the best ideas coming through. There will be breakout areas to mull over issues, sofas to sit and hammer out the details, and plenty of good brains to pick.
What is mHealth?
It’s a booming field of new opportunities in healthcare opened up by mobile technologies and telecommunications – harnessing the communications, processing power and personal nature of mobile phones, whether smart or simple. Check out the blog posts on the event website for some great examples, as well as market analyses. We have chosen mHealth as our first area of focus because of the vast possibilities, the great need for improvement & change in healthcare, and the commercial potential.
What is a ThinkCamp?
ThinkCamps create an open and stimulating environment for the sharing and comparing of experiences, frustrations, skills and visions for the future. There is just enough structure to allow you to discuss issues, flesh-out ideas, and provide the right balance of expertise and support to act on those ideas. But the process goes beyond the event itself – ideas are given the opportunity to turn into tangible projects that are mentored and further developed, and have a clear path to implementation.
The Mobile Collective ThinkCamp Series is a collaborative approach to generating and supporting ideas that address problems, rise to challenges, and take advantage of new opportunities. We bring together people from a diverse range of disciplines and skill-sets, facilitate the generation of ideas, and provide a supportive process for organically formed working groups to get as many good ideas to market as possible.
