I was at mHealth Dec 2012 and have been following the conference on twitter this year. The major topics and number upstarts seems to be trending along the lines of –
- Wellness / Behavior Modification
Last year I spoke to numerous startups working on consumer solutions for nutrition, weight management, diabetes management – MyGlucoHealth, FatSecret and others. This seems no different there is continued momentum in this category.
- Patient Engagement / Hospital Mobility
Various companies offering concierge medicine and enabling communication with the patients – coretext, tigertext, celltrust, mHealthCoach, medhelp and others. Solutions targeting meaningful use 2, readmissions management, medication adherence and care collaboration. This year healthloop is creating fair bit buzz with its recent 10M funding round.
- Consumer Devices / Self Tracking

Get your creative geek on and be part of the Health and Life Sciences application contest. The ten winning entries get an XBOX 360 console with Kinect for each team participant and a chance to make difference in Healthcare!
In addition to the application ideas on the contest website feel free to use the resources from Health hack-a-thons. Perhaps it will be great to see some mash-ups using data from http://www.data.gov/health.
Drop me a note if you need help connecting your mobile applications with HealthVault or are trying to explore the Health datasets.
Update: If you want to take your project to the next level, RockHealth might have some seed funding for you!
