Action on Mobile/Wireless Health Technologies Recommended
A Federal Communications Commission (FCC) task force issued recommendations to speed the adoption of mobile, wireless and electronic health care technologies. The report recommends that the FCC play a leadership role in advancing mobile health adoption; collaborate with other federal agencies to promote innovation and avoid regulatory duplication; build on existing programs to expand broadband access to health care; and continue to increase capacity, reliability, interoperability and safety of mobile health technologies. In addition, the panel said device and software vendors should continue to develop and deploy mobile health care solutions, and adopt standards-based technologies for simple and secure health communications.
