E-Commerce Times Talkback
See Full Story
mHealth is an exciting new industry that blends healthcare and wireless. In the next couple of weeks, I will be meeting with many people representing companies and new ideas in the mHealth industry at the annual CTIA show in Orlando. Some of these are established large companies, while others are small and spunky startups, but all have some very hot ideas and technologies they want to talk about. This mobile health space is starting to get some traction, and I believe it is getting ready to explode into the marketplace. That's the good part.
Jeff, you are ahead of most, anticipating the confusion that is about to ensue with the "branding" of this industry. As you said, this "touches more than wireless". A label should not be given based upon the delivery platform of the day. Thus, the "wireless", "mobile", "cellular" and "mHealth" labels have a limited shelf life. So, for the time being, I'm placing my bets on "eHealth".
