CTIA-The Wireless Association® November Edition of 'Wonder of Wireless' and Blog to Focus on mHealth
Date:11/1/2010

WASHINGTON, Nov. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Innovative wireless technology is reshaping the healthcare landscape in America and around the world, and the November "Wonder of Wireless" webcast (www.ctia.org) focuses on new applications, developments, and policies which can provide consumers even more value and better health. This is particularly true in chronic disease treatment, since more than 45 percent of the U.S. population suffers from at least one chronic condition and approximately 25 percent have multiple chronic conditions, such as congestive heart failure, diabetes and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Out of the $2.2 trillion spent on healthcare in the U.S., $1.4 trillion is spent treating chronic diseases. If patients suffering from congestive heart failure, diabetes and COPD agreed to have their doctor monitor them remotely via mobile wireless applications, (i.e. monitor patients' health and track and guide self-care beyond the doctors' offices), experts say the savings would amount to $21.1 billion per year by reducing emergency care, hospitalization and nursing home costs. This month's WOW webcast and the CTIA blog (www.ctia.org/blog) will feature stories and insight on how wireless can help all of us lead healthier lives.
