So, was it an important quarter for mobile health?
During Q3 we learned that payors and mobile operators had decided to come to the table. Skeptics of mHealth emerged with stern warnings and ultimately helpful commentaries. Analysts called consumer health apps "faddy" and "immature." Still, dozens of deals made headlines during the quarter and a handful of startups raked in new investments. The US federal government, care providers, wireless operators, payers, pharma companies and consumer health companies each ramped up their mHealth activities. Time will tell, but Q3 may be remembered as the period during which mobile health finally began to hum. This MobiHealthNews quarterly report is the third of four planned reports that will cover each three-month period of 2010.
