9:00 Mobile and Cloud - Rethinking Diagnostics

Sailesh ChutaniSailesh Chutani, Ph.D., President and CEO, Mobisante, Inc.

Point-of-care diagnostics devices, coupled with the power of real-time data in the cloud, can revolutionize access to health care while reducing costs. Such devices can be made simple enough and affordable to be used by mid-level professionals in the field. Connectivity allows access to remote experts, storage of data in the cloud, as well as intensive computations and analysis of that data. Mobisante has used this model to create a smart phone and cloud-based ultrasound imaging system, where the collected set of images can be archived in the cloud, processed for enhancements, and analyzed for providing guidance.
