6 fatal flaws of smartwatches for health users

Some time ago as part of a series on ‘mHealth Myths and Reality’ I made the point that there was no point trying to choose the perfect device for mHealth applications. I still think that’s true but events this week make me want to qualify that – […]

There’s no place like home

There’s no place like home

Phrases such as ‘no place like home’, ‘home sweet home’  and  ‘home is where the heart is’ have probably lost their meaning because they are so commonplace – but I feel compelled to write about the power of those phrases and how they should shape our future […]

A regional recipe for mHealth

A regional recipe for mHealth

I’ve commented before that the USA has too often led the way in mHealth and digital health, but I was pleased to see a report this week that indicated signs of life in Europe, and possibly a pointer to how we can see repeatable success. A quiet […]
