mHealth market hotting up…

One good sign that a market is generating hype is the number of conferences that are being created to serve it. In difficult times conferences are one of the first bits of spending that corporations try to cut back on so conference organisers have to be very quick to jump on any new possible bandwagon.

Since helping Informa to organise the worlds first proper mHealth Conference (the Mobile Healthcare Industry Summit) in London last year it’s great to see you could nearly fill your 2010 diary attending mHealth themed conferences:

    US: Conference on Telehealth and Remote Patient Monitoring for Hospitals and Health Systems

    An overview of health informatics events: (can’t imagine HIT events NOT mentioning mhealth 😉 )

  2. Hi Bart,

    Thanks for those recommendations.

    As for “can’t imagine HIT events NOT mentioning mhealth”… in 2010 it’s depressing to see plenty that still don’t. Even some of the ones you expect to have their foot on the ball don’t even appear to have their eye on it!
