The IEEE Wireless Health Scientific Conference Series was established in 2010 to develop an international research-based community to accelerate the development and adoption of new wireless, mobile and connected technologies for improving health and lowering healthcare costs.  Central to this mission is the creation of a nurturing research forum that creates an opportunity for trans-disciplinary and cross-sector collaboration. This unique meeting brings together members of the health and technology research communities, device manufacturers, health service providers, and federal policy makers. IEEE Wireless Health 2016 will offer an outstanding set of peer‐reviewed papers and abstracts, interactive workshops and tutorials, emerging application demonstrations, and world‐renowned keynote speakers.

The seventh annual IEEE Wireless Health conference, co-sponsored by the WLSA and IEEE/EMBS in cooperation with the National Institutes of Health, will build upon the successes of past conferences. IEEE Wireless Health 2016 will offer an outstanding set of peer-reviewed papers and abstracts, interactive workshops, emerging application demonstrations, topical panel discussions, and world-renowned invited speakers. The program format will include presentations followed by poster sessions and breakout sessions for attendees to interact directly with presenters, in addition to expert panel discussions and tutorial sessions with leading industrial and clinical organizations.

IEEE Wireless Health 2016 will provide a critical networking opportunity that links each of the Wireless Health communities and organizations – ranging from the academic, engineering, health and industry communities to the federal, regulatory and standards communities – together in one forum. It also provides a valuable and timely education event that informs each of the communities about opportunities that occur in this new field combining health, wireless technology, information technology, mobile technology and a broad set of new products and services.
