Qualcomm Exec Talks About The “Health Phone” Of The Future

Earlier today, my friend Amy Tenderich published a fascinating interview with Donjones.jpg Jones, Qualcomm’s vice president of Business Development.  During their conversation, Jones focused on how wireless technologies will aid disease prevention and diagnosis.  All this was interesting, but I was most fascinated by his discussion of Qualcomm’s research into how wireless phones can help diabetes patients.  He said:

“We've done a ton of research -- focus groups around the country on storyboards to prototypes -- to understand how wireless connectivity be used to change people’s lives in a way that they think is valuable.

For diabetes, research suggests that an integrated meter in a phone is far more appealing to Type 2’s than Type 1’s -- because the Type 2's test less often, and don’t always carry their meter.  With the phone, they'd always have it on-hand.  They're also more interested in the coaching and convenience of the services.”

Very interesting stuff and a must-read for anyone interested in how mobile will influence health today and tomorrow.

Can wireless phones help diabetes patients? That is unbelievable! And I heard that Cell phone use linked to brain cancer. I really think that cellphones are dangerous or not is really a good issue that we need to study. But every news story I read says "mobile phones cannot be shown to have ANY relationship to brain cancer" but can you trust the few studies they quote? Is it possible this billion dollar industry is seeking to silence the author rather than to allow impartial research? I think I have found something from this book that I found recently: http://dealstudio.com/searchdeals.php?deal_id=95730&ru=279 , so if wireless phones can help diabetes patients, I think they are some special phones! Huh!
