A scorecard for mHealth

A scorecard for mHealth

This time last year I risked making some predictions for mHealth in 2014. I thought I’d revisit those, not so much to see if I was right (unimportant) but to deliver a scorecard for progress made (very important). Prediction 1: mHealth will be led by consumerisation in […]

The myth of ‘mobile everywhere’

Right, I think it’s about time I finished off my series on ‘mHealth Myths and Realities’.  For this final chapter I’m going to examine the myth that ‘it should be mobile everywhere’.    Er, aren’t you the mHealth guy? It may sound odd, coming from someone who professes […]
