Today was the final day of the mHealth Summit,held in Washington D.C. The programme was focused on business, clinical research and policy perspectives of mobile health. One of the Keynote speakers that caught our attentionwas U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius. In her talk, Sebelius acknowledged that the U.S. government has ‘a critical role as a catalyst’ to encourage entrepreneurs to enter the mHealth market. We are curious to see how this is going to develop! In addition, the summit was host to ‘40 most innovative mHealth start-ups’, some of which were truly jaw-dropping and we shall write more about them in the near future!
For those of you who are interested, some of the talks were uploaded online.
