With support from The Wireless Foundation, The George Washington University provided DC-metro area first responders with mobile EKG machines. Since every second counts, this lifesaving wireless technology provides the doctors with the real-time access to the patient's condition so they may determine the proper treatment before the patient even reaches the hospital.

West Health Chief Strategy Officer Dr. Mo Kaushal discusses the some of the regulatory, technical and user challenges of connected health.  

Watch how input from searches or data from monthly bills is helping health researchers and experts to identify epidemics in real-time.

Clarence Williams of Gardner, Kansas was driving to work one morning, as usual, when he witnessed a horrific crash. Using his cellphone to call 911, he gave them the location of the accident and assessed the condition of the driver, a pregnant mother who was bleeding and unconscious. Staying with the woman until emergency responders arrived, she and her daughter made it out alive.
