Bertalan Meskó discusses how mobile technologies can improve the delivery of health care

In this video produced for the Stanford online course "Mobile Health Without Borders," Bertalan Meskó, MD, PhD, examines the opportunities for using mobile technologies to advance the delivery of health care. Among the topics he discusses are the importance of curating health-related digital resources and mobile applications and implementing digital literacy in medical education. He also identifies two promising trends: self-tracking, where patients record daily health stats and use the information to improve their personal health, and augmented reality, where doctors can harness mobile devices to aid them in examining or operating on patients.
