DETROIT - May 27, 2013 - PRLog -- What are the challenges that exist with the continuing expansion of mHealth initiatives? According to the Journal of Medical Internet Research, the most pressing challenges are:

•   Privacy
•   Data security
•   Funding
•   A lack of good examples of the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of mHealth in practice
•   The need for more high-quality research

Other high-profile issues in mHealth include:

•   HIPAA compliance
•   Legal
•   Device management
•   Network/IT infrastructure issues
•   Reimbursement
•   User capabilities

As part of MTAM’s effort to address the challenges around mHealth efforts and ensure that Michigan is leading the way in national and international initiatives driving growth in this sector, the trade association is launching a statewide mHealth Advisory Committee. The committee will be tasked with assisting the trade association with the development of resources, events, and educational, networking and business development opportunities for those working in Michigan’s healthcare industry and with healthcare-focused mobile/wireless technologies.

mHealth has been selected to be the first of MTAM’s series of vertical-focused advisory committees to launch due to the size and quality of the existing healthcare and medical research communities throughout Michigan, the national and international opportunities available for Michigan firms who elect to engage in this sector, and the requests the association has received from Michigan’s healthcare community and mobile/wireless firms who are already working in this space.

Chairing the MTAM mHealth Advisory Committee will be Kevin Lasser, CEO of Michigan-based JEMS Technology – the mobile healthcare solution that enables a medical consult anytime, anywhere and is becoming the preferred choice for healthcare institutions worldwide. A self-admitted “serial entrepreneur” Lasser has over 28 years of experience in business building, finance and technology solutions, and was previously CEO of Encryption Security Solutions (ESS) and Pure Entropy Technologies (PET) where he led both companies in becoming best-in-class providers of encryption/cyber-security solutions to public and private organizations.

According to Mr. Lasser, “It is widely known that the healthcare industry has been faced with a big challenge – too few doctors (particularly in under-served areas) due to, amongst other things, Obamacare and the Accountable Care Organization Act. The purpose of the mHealth Advisory Committee is to address these challenges and ensure Michigan becomes a leader in providing the necessary solutions. I believe that the State of Michigan has the right people and resources, and I am honored to be a part of this committee. Our goal will always be to put Michigan people and resources in a position to lead the way in utilizing mobile/wireless technologies to solve healthcare challenges, not only in Michigan, but nationally and globally as well.”
