Review of the mHealth Summit, Washington DC, 8-10 November 2010

In 2008 I made some predictions suggesting that eHealth would be superseded by a focus on mHealth. In 2009 the Mobile Healthcare Industry Summit in London started this trend (with my help of course!) and now in 2010 there have been more than 35 events and there are still a few more before the year is out – don’t miss the Mobile Healthcare Industry Summit Middle East that I will be chairing. But having arrived back from the US it’s clear to me that the need for this transition has finally been accepted. With >2500 delegates, over 40 hours of presentations and panels and keynote presentations from at least 3 billionaires (including Bill Gates, Patrick Soon-Shiong and Ted Turner) I have no doubt that the mHealth Summit will prove to be the event that defined the point of no return.

Thanks to the support of partners we were on the exhibition floor with some mHealth demos where it was great to meet with so many mHeath innovators and fans of this blog. If even just for the hundreds of exhibition floor conversations I enjoyed this was a truly unmissable event but that’s only scratching the surface. A big thank you to headline sponsors (including Abbott, Accenture, ATA, CDC Foundation, CTIA, CTIS, HMN, Intel, JnJ, McKesson, Microsoft, Pfizer, Qualcomm, RWJ Foundation, Skype, Rockefeller Foundation, Verizon and the West Wireless Foundation) who ensured it was carried off in such style in such a fitting location in the US Capital.

As you can imagine writing a review of an event of this scale would be impossible with a single post summary so I’ve divided my thoughts up into smaller more manageable snippets, please click the following links to read more detail and as always feel welcome to share your thoughts and comments:
