So, was it an important quarter for mobile health?
The launch of the first app store approved Bluetooth-enabled medical device app. A big partnership for Verizon Wireless. The dissolution of one of the earliest and cash-flush partnerships in mobile health. A good number of deals and twice as many venture capital investment announcements than in Q1. Unsurprisingly, the US government in particular has been busy these past three months, but care providers, wireless operators, payers, pharma companies and consumer health companies each had a slower quarter than Q1. Payers in particular have been all but absent. The mobile health industry may be up... but it's not running yet.
This MobiHealthNews quarterly report is the second of four planned reports that will cover each three-month period of 2010.
