“I still see mHealth as an extension of existing businesses and healthcare IT. I don’t believe we’ll see all that many pure mHealth companies find a business model. Although, there will be some in the consumer space that will do very well. I also see many mHealth initiatives in underdeveloped countries seeing some amazing results.”
I remember hearing similar predictions being made by music industry incumbents when they were still ignoring the billion dollar mobile music business while entrepreneurs like Simon Buckingham (Ringtones.com) executed on their “purely mobile” business strategies. It’s well worth reminding ourselves how mHealth will change the world far more than eHealth ever could.
