mHealth and EHR with Brian Gardner of Kaiser Permanente

By Kyle Murphy, PhD

According to Manhattan Research, 26% of consumers use their mobile devices for health information, which represents close to a 150% increase over the previous year. And the number of smartphone users is growing nearly as fast: Of the 8,745 individuals surveyed, 38% own a smartphone.

Mobile health is more than a trend. It is becoming an integral part of American healthcare, and health information technology (IT) developers are responding with mobile platforms and applications to improve provider and patient access and exchange of health information.

Before the kickoff of Health 2.0, we sat down with Brian Gardner, Head of the Mobile Center of Excellence at Kaiser Permanente, and discussed the challenges of developing mobile platforms and harnessing the potential of mHealth. Recently, Kaiser Permanente released its mobile-optimized version of its website, which allows its roughly 9 million members to access their electronic health record (EHR) with their mobile device.
