If you don’t know who Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong is, you should. He’s the South African-American surgeon who was founder, chairman, and CEO of Abraxis BioScience, a biotechnology company developing cancer treatment.  He’s also part owner of the Los Angeles Lakers and he recently acquired Vitality Glow Caps.

A revolutionary leader, Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong has made it his personal duty to improve our nation’s health with the expansion of wireless products. This recently caught the attention of CNBC reporter, Jane Wells. You can view her interview with him here.

In Wells’ recent interview with Soon-Shiong, she asks him what he plans to accomplish with his billion dollar investment in health care. Although Wells’ tone seems judgmental, Soon-Shiong gracefully explains how he wants to make the next generation of 21st century medicine available to the entire nation.

Soon-Shiong emphasizes the newest advancements in health care technology, “are not going to be made by molecular biologists, but by mathematicians, physicists, and computer scientists figuring out a way to get all your health information together at the point of care.” (more…)

What is the Best mHealth Strategy for You?

Alex Bettencourt - February 25, 2011

mobile health movement What is the Best mHealth Strategy for You?

We can all agree smart phone adoption is rapidly increasing, and following close behind is the market of mobile health services. With more than 10,000 health apps in the Apple iPhone store alone, it’s easy to feel a bit overwhelmed. Many pharma marketing executives are scratching their heads wondering, “What is the best mobile health solution for my company?”

Mobile health is something different to everyone. It’s not one size does fits all. It means something different to marketing organizations, patients, and doctors. First we should clarify the general meaning of mHealth.

mHealth – It’s More Than an iPhone App

According to Wikipedia, mHealth is a new term used for the practice of medical and public health, supported by mobile devices.  Wikipedia also notes that there is a strong relationship between eHealth and mobile health. For example, an mHealth project that uses mobile phones to access data on HIV/AIDS rates would require an eHealth system in order to manage, store, and assess the data. Thus, eHealth projects many times operate as the backbone of mHealth projects. (more…)

A Reminder from Pew of The Power of Mobile for Health Care

Pamela Swingley - February 15, 2011

When I started working on RememberItNow! I was bursting with enthusiasm at the prospect of really helping people to manage their health. I would dream about features for our software. I’d leap from bed to start work at 5:00 am and not stop until 10:00 pm loving every second of it. I was thrilled to be able to see the future, and leverage the vision to make things better for my Dad and others like him that struggle to manage complicated healthcare schedules.

But lately, it’s been alot harder to get inspired. And just when I start to think it’s not worth the effort, I run across a piece on the Internet like this one by thought leader Susannah Fox at Pew Research about the Power of Mobile. It really helps to find others that share the passion and vision.

Susannah wraps up her presentation with a few thoughts looking back at the landscape.

“The access revolution is over. Mobile is changing us, changing our frame of reference so that we see information as portable, personalized, and participatory.

Health care has a marvelous opportunity tap in to our ancient instincts to share and our modern ability to do so at internet speed.

Build on the new frontier. Build on the power of mobile.”

We couldn’t agree more. Thank you Susannah for the reminder that what we do really matters.
