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

Purdue University

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.
