“the idea of having (MOBILE) access to electronic medical records is transformational”

MobiHealthnews picked up a great quote from an iHealthBeat interview with Shankar Sastry, Dean of Engineering at the University of California-Berkeley:

“The cell phone is perfect because it’s like a wrist watch you carry around, I think the idea of having access to electronic medical records is transformational in that it changes electronic medical records to be personal health records… …So I think that going forward there will be a huge consumer push to be able to both record and analyze data and the cell phones are gradually becoming not just a place for repository and also for analyzing data, but also as a distributive sensor network in the sense that the cell phone can interrogate other sensors which are attached to your body.”
