Mobile health on the way

I realize that I post infrequently not because I have nothing to say, rather because I am too much of a perfectionist when it comes to writing. I have to think, write, read, re-read, re-write, re-read, re-write. I thought I had gotten over this - which is not really compatible with constant blogging - but some habits die hard. So I'm going to cheat a bit by linking you to other great blog posts in between mine. My HBS classmate Dave O'Reilly recently started the Intelligent Medicine Blog. Check out his post on Wireless, Health and the FDA, which summarizes both an article in BusinessWeek: Dr. Wi-Fi to the Rescue and one from Mobihealthnews: FDA may regulate iPhone Health Apps. Dave's post details the coming mobile revolution in healthcare and how the FDA might consider regulating iPhone and other mobile health applications. Well worth a read.
