On Monday 25 January 2010 Mobile Monday Amsterdam organised a mHealth themed event which was the first for this global community and I think it’s evidence of the increasing awareness amongst the mobile community to harness mobiles for the delivery of better healthcare.
The event was held in the truly magnificent De Duif (pictured above), in the beautiful snow covered Amsterdam, and attended by a crowd of 400+ thanks to the organisational efforts of Maarten den Braber, Marc Fonteijn, Yuri van Geest, Sam Warnaars, Matijn Pannevis and Andreas Gerolemou and Sponsors Vodafone, Logica, Nedstat, cm. and Skyhook Wireless. I’ve never seen such a well organised free-to-attend event and I’m not sure whether this has more to do with the talents of this experienced team or the passion that they most certainly had for this subject.
I was very grateful to have been invited to speak on Mobile Connected Health and the work we’re doing at 3G Doctor, but I was quite amazed at the diversity and quality of the other speakers so I decided to write it all up with my personal opinions in a review article (like I did following the Mobile Healthcare Industry Summit recently).
