State of the Industry: Q4 2012/Year-End
In the few weeks since 2012 drew to a close it has become clear that the past 12 months were a banner period of activity for mobile and digital health. Over the course of the last year the term “digital health” rose to prominence; BYOD (bring your own device) continued to plague CIOs and healthcare provider IT departments — especially with the advent of the more “pocketable” iPad mini; meanwhile, “meaningful use” requirements announced in 2012 pointed to a focus on patient engagement for 2014 and beyond; reports of payors beginning to reimburse for mobile-enabled therapies emerged; wearable devices multiplied; health incubators spread; and much, much more happened.
MobiHealthNews was there to cover it all, each and everyday.
If you need to catch up on mobile health developments during the fourth quarter — look no further. We have pulled together the most important events in mHealth that occurred between October and December 2012. This report covers the year that was with a full round-up of year-long trends, a complete list of the deals and partnerships MobiHealthNews covered over the course of the year, and a round-up of the investments we tracked during the past 12 months.
