On April 17, 2016, The mHealth Toolbox hosted an official pre-conference workshop for The International Conference for Emergency Medicine (ICEM) in Cape Town's International Convention Centre. This session brought together international experts in mHealth innovation, big data and wearable technology.

This workshop's smaller class size meant that attendees were able to dive deeper into the hands-on gear lab, and then work in small groups discussing real-world applications for these novel technologies. After this group work was completed, each group competed in a shark-tank style competition, pitching why their use of new technology would be most beneficial to patients and providers alike.
