Eric Topol demos mHealth tech to give his book the Colbert Bump



Eric Topol demoing the iPhone ECG from Alivecor

let’s convert the smartphone into a medical deviceEric Topol introducing the Alivecor ECG to 1.5 Million viewers of last nights Colbert Report.

Products showcased included the Alivecor ECG (read notes on some of our early experiences with this breakthrough device here), Sotera’s ViSiMobile and CellScope’s camera attachment for iPhone.

I’ve noticed some people get confused about whether this type of innovation should be referred to as “Digital Health” or “Wireless Health” but I think this light hearted TV show makes it very clear that the reason this is all so exciting is because it’s mHealth eg. medical technology that is converging with the smart mobile devices that are already in our pockets.
