Mobile Connected Health:
Personalized Medicine in Your Home and Pocket
Edward J. Delp
Director,Video and Image Processing Laboratory
Professor, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering
With new technology there are always new opportunities for delivering health care.
The US has an aging population that will put more demands on our health care delivery system. In this talk I will
describe how the use of small sensors and mobile devices can be used to aid in health care. I will describe several
systems that are currently available and what the future may bring. I will also discuss the “quantified self” movement
and privacy and regulatory issues.
