There is sharp rise in consumer mobile devices and applications in the market focused on personal healthcare and the idea of the "quantified self", the continuous gathering of data related to our lifestyles and habits, and then discovering patterns and trends in one's own habits. From fitness monitoring to weight loss or diet management, we see these ideas manifest themselves in products such as the Nike Fuelband, Jawbone UP, Fitbit, Zeo sleep monitor, Runkeeper etc. Are these applications simply a temporary fad, or indicative of a larger trend and affinity for personal health management? How effective are these applications in promoting better health? Are we tracking the right data? What about metrics? In this campfire session we assemble a panel of experts across the mobile technology and healthcare fields from IDEO, Partners Healthcare & Ginger.io, to discuss and debate where (we think) all this is going. Agenda: 6:00 pm – 6:30 pm Networking & Light Dinner 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm Interactive Panel Discussion.
