Authors: Tiantian Li


During December 7-10, 2014, the Annual mHealth Summit took place at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center on the bank of the Potomac River in Washington, DC. This summit is the largest annual conference dedicated to the mHealth field in the world. There are several thousand participants each year, and more importantly, these participants are not only from the healthcare field but also from pharmaceutical companies, telecommunication companies, governments, non-profit organizations, universities, research institutions, insurance companies, and other areas. It is an important annual conference that almost all the mHealth-related stakeholders in the field will attend. As a speaker at this year’s conference, I also attended the meeting. In addition to giving a talk, I also made some notes during meeting breaks for domestic readers who did not attend the meeting, and I hope this information will bring you some inspiration (Figures 1,2).
