Innovative Uses of Technology to Improve Health for Poor and Vulnerable People to be Explored at Rockefeller Foundation Conference
Date:6/2/2008

ndia, and one of the conference organizers, said, "The conference's focus on the nexus of eHealth and the Global South is notable. Given the rapid spread of mobile communications technologies, this conference should provide timely information to and learnings from several countries in the Global South, such as India, that have committed resources to developing and deploying eHealth technology, and are interested in learning how mobile technology and telemedicine are converging. Developing countries can now leap frog, not even piggy back. We hope this will illuminate a path for others to follow."

"This effort comes at a critical moment," said Don E. Detmer, MD, MA, President and CEO of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA), and a conference organizer with the collaboration of the International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA). "As a long-time proponent of eHealth and informatics for improving care for patients and populations, this initiative offers a rare opportunity for us to share perspectives as we seek to integrate a set of complex requirements so that coordinated progress can occur across borders. We must effectively address our shared global health disease, capacity-building, and workforce challenges, most especially in the Global South. AMIA is delighted to be working with the Rockefeller Foundation on this sound initiative to bridge a significant global leadership gap."

Making the eHealth Connection underscores the Rockefeller Foundation's commitment to unleashing human capacity and technological innovation to benefit poor and vulnerable people around the world. The conference extends the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center's tradition of bringing together people of diverse expertise and cultures in a neutral and thought-provoking environment to promote international understanding and encourage innovation and creativity.
