New Mobile Health (mHealth) Newsletter Launches, mobihealthnews.com
BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Chester Street Publishing, Inc. announced the launch of its first publication today, mobihealthnews.
“Hospitals are just beginning to see the value of using text messaging for appointment reminders”
Mobihealthnews.com is both a daily news portal and a weekly e-newsletter that helps healthcare I.T. decision makers keep up with developments in wireless healthcare technologies, or mHealth. Subscribers will also gain insight on innovations and sustainable business models for services that enable remote monitoring of patients, chronic disease management, medicinal adherence, mobile electronic health records (EHRs) and much, much more.
“Emerging technologies in mHealth are already transforming the way care is delivered to patients on-the-go, at home and at their place of care,” says mobihealthnews Editor & Publisher Brian Dolan. “The already over-extended healthcare industry is gearing up for an influx of aging Baby Boomers, many of whom will demand always-on, connected care, not just periodic visits to the doctor. At the same time, smartphones like Apple's iPhone have demonstrated that the mobile phone is fast becoming an important platform for health and fitness applications."
"Hospitals are just beginning to see the value of using text messaging for appointment reminders," Dolan continues. "The federal government has pushed the industry toward mass adoption of EHRs. Consumers are signing up for personal health records like Microsoft's HealthVault and Google Health. The convergence of the always-connected consumer and the finally-connected healthcare industry is well underway. Mobihealthnews is excited to be covering this increasingly important, emerging market.”
Prior to founding Chester Street Publishing with Marketing Director Joe Maillie, Dolan served as a senior analyst at Yankee Group, where he helped craft the company's publications and events' agendas. Before Yankee Group Dolan was an editor of FierceWireless, a leading wireless trade journal, as well as the founding editor of FierceMobileContent and FierceIPTV.
"Mobihealthnews will provide subscribers with both a daily mHealth news digest as well as a free, weekly e-newsletter with expert commentary from leading analysts in the healthcare I.T. industry," Maillie says. "We are excited about the launch of mobihealthnews and even though it's been just a few short weeks, it is already the leading mHealth publication available today. We look forward to chronicling innovation in the healthcare industry for our readers. Be sure to subscribe today!"
