Continua Connect Events
Continua Connects - Abu Dhabi
July 15-17, 2013
Abu Dhabi, UAE
To promote and support global adoption of interoperable Design Guidelines and gain exposure for Continua-ready personal health technologies developed by member companies, the Continua Health Alliance has launched “Continua Connects”, technology showcase and networking events that bring together major purchasers with developers and integrators of Continua compliant devices, systems and services. Continua Connects events are designed to:
- Promote standardization to governments preparing to implement a telehealth or mhealth program
- Highlight new and available technologies that can facilitate timely rollout for target programs requiring Continua compliant technologies
- Enhance business opportunities for members
- Facilitate public-private partnerships
- Support the technology economy in the host nation
The first Continua Connects event in 2013 is scheduled for May 12-13, and will support Abu Dhabi's rollout of Weqaya, a regional connected health program initially targeting cardiovascular disease and diabetes among Abu Dhabi’s population of 2.4 million people, with plans to expand to include other chronic illnesses. The program's mobile technology platform, built on Continua’s Design Guidelines, will be designed to motivate behavior change to improve nutrition, increase physical activity and reduce tobacco use.
