This Week in Health Innovation and The Coming Mobile Health Startup Revolution

After the great experience many of us had at the Dell Healthcare Think Tank event, Gregg Masters asked if Shahid Shah (my partner in Influential Networks) and I would take part in an online interview he does called This Week in Health Innovation. This is one element of the Health Innovation Broadcast Consortium that Gregg and a few others have put together. We had a great 30 minute conversation about some of the major trends we saw happening in healthcare IT and then we even went into an overtime discussion for another 10 minutes. The time flew by in our discussion, but I think there were some really good nuggets shared in the interview. You can listen to the full interview in the embed below.

I was also recently asked to do a guest blog post for the NYEC (New York eHealth Collaborative) blog. First, I have to say that I love that their blogging. Second, as many of you know, I’ve been participating in the Digital Health Conference in NYC that the NYEC puts on every year. It is a really great event.

With that background, I think that many of my readers will enjoy my guest post titled “The Coming Mobile Health Startup Revolution.” This is really coming, but I don’t think it’s going to come as most current mobile health people expect. A long series of incremental technology advancements have us prepped for an explosion of innovation in healthcare. I just hope that the healthcare structure doesn’t slow it down.
