Barcelona: growing the mHealth 'ecosystem'

One of the many panels on mobile health at Mobile World Congress (Thursday has a full track) discussed how to best develop the potential of mHealth.  McKinsey & Company’s key study of 3000 households in India, China, South Africa, Brazil and the US found that 70 percent of respondents were interested in at least one product, such as 24 hour access to a doctor. The panelists (including LG and Ericsson) agreed that partnerships with academia, entrepreneurs and healthcare firms are needed for continued growth.  FierceWireless.
