CLEVELAND, May 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CellepathicRx will speak at the CTIA Executive Forum during International CTIA WIRELESS® 2012, taking place May 8-10 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
Greg A. Muffler, CEO of CellepathicRx, will participate in the Innovation Showcase at 12:54 p.m. on May 9 at the CTIA Main Stage. Muffler's presentation -- "Can Your Cellphone Make You Healthy?" -- will focus on how mHealth must do more than remind people to take medications, and how the right platform, properly deployed, can actually integrate into patient lifestyles and influence positive behavior to improve health and wellness.
"Traditionally, mHealth has been focused on disease state management. However, impacting human behavior is where the opportunity for change lies. We are focused on trying to change behavior by collaborating with clinicians and integrating into patients' lifestyles, looking at the patients from several perspectives, and keeping them well in ways beyond just taking pills," Muffler said.
CellepathicRx will be on hand to showcase its mHealth products focused on increasing patient therapy adherence and improving patient outcomes. The company provides HIPAA-compliant, client-branded mobile health platforms that leverage SMS text and QR Codes; custom mobile web and apps for all major smartphone and feature phone platforms; e-mail; and interactive voice response (IVR) technology.
