Mobile Health and Health IT are revolutionizing the healthcare industry. From Electronic Health Records (EHRs) that coordinate patient care to mobile applications and Clinical Decision Support (CDS) tools that aid diagnoses, monitor symptoms, and track compliance with medications, healthcare technology is rapidly changing established healthcare delivery models and the rules that govern them. Healthcare of the future requires novel, yet practical approaches to address changing legal and regulatory schemes, advancements in research and development, and marketing globalization of such emerging technologies. This new healthcare delivery model will impact cross-border regulations, policies, and best practices, including regulatory licensing and approval, quality and safety, coverage and reimbursement, market access, healthcare compliance, advertising and promotion, privacy and data security, and litigation and risk management.
