Improving care delivery through enhanced communications among providers, patients, and payers

While mHealth traditionally stands for “mobile health,” this Task Force adopted the term more broadly to refer to mobile health, wireless health, and e‐Care technologies that improve patient care and the efficiency of healthcare delivery.

This Task Force report sets goals and recommendations for the FCC, other federal agencies, and industry to help leverage communication technologies to improve healthcare quality, access and efficiency.
This report is delivered with the overarching goal that by 2017 mHealth, wireless health and e‐Care solutions will be routinely available as part of best practices for medical care.  FCC leadership as well as interagency collaborations will be needed to address technical and policy barriers, including developing appropriate reimbursement and financial incentives.
