Mobile Health Summit Convenes Today

The World Economic Forum, which organizes the exclusive annual meeting on global economics, business, and policy in Davos, Switzerland, is convening its first invitation-only summit on mobile healthcare today at San Diego’s Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa. A key figure driving the event is Qualcomm Chairman and CEO Paul Jacobs, who also is chairman of the forum’s council on the future of mobile communications. More than 75 people from eight countries are expected to attend, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.  In a blog on its website, the World Economic Forum says the main objective of the summit is “to explore the creation of a global framework to address the growing need for effective, mobile health solutions over the next three to five years.”
