WLSA to summit attendees: Vote for innovation

mHealth Summit attendees will settle a "friendly competition" today by voting to decide which of a handful of mHealth companies is the most innovative.

The session, "Making Wireless Health Innovation Work for the Whole World: A Friendly Competition by Innovators" is being presented by the Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance (WLSA), a Strategic Affiliate of the 2011 mHealth Summit.

The session runs from 3:30-5 p.m. in National Harbor 3.

Presenting companies will give examples of how their innovations will address global healthcare needs, such as improving access to care, improving quality and ultimately affecting global markets. Attendees will then vote for the most innovative wireless company/technology at the session.

The winner will be acknowledged by the WLSA and the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH), the non-profit that produces the mHealth Summit.
