Discussion Panel: Health Mobility and Technology — Present and Future | 14:00 – 15:30  | Zoom

In an era marked by rapid technological advancements and societal shifts, the intersection of health, mobility, and technology has emerged as a pivotal domain with profound implications for individuals, communities, and industries. The ongoing evolution in these areas not only transforms the way healthcare is delivered but also reshapes how we move, communicate, and interact with our environment. mHealth, or mobile health, involves using devices like smartphones and wearables to support medical and public health practices, including service delivery, health monitoring, data collection, and patient engagement.
The expertise of the panelists, including Daniel Rivera’s contributions to mHealth interventions, João Paulo Cunha’s advancements in biomedical engineering and mHealth applications, Teresa Galvão’s work in operational research and smart mobility, and Teresa Mendonça’s focus on the control of neuromuscular blockade, collectively offers a comprehensive perspective on the current state and future possibilities within the realms of health, mobility, and technology.
The discussion aims to highlight the significance of these converging fields, exploring their transformative potential, challenges, and the collaborative strategies needed to navigate this dynamic landscape.
