Announcing mHIMSS.org - the online community for mobile and wireless health technology

Today’s healthcare landscape is changing dramatically, and one of the driving forces behind that change is the mobile health industry. From smartphones to medical devices, consumer-facing portals to video-conferencing setups, and apps to attitudes, mHealth is a growing universe with plenty of participants and promise.

 

mHIMSS.org aims to provide the definitive guide to that expanding universe.

 

Launched today in partnership between the Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and MedTech Media, publishers of Healthcare IT News, Healthcare Finance News, Government Health IT and a number of other online resources, mHIMSS is an online community focused on mobile health. Updated daily, it will share emerging practices, trends, commentary pieces, blogs, posted press releases, white papers and a host of other resources on mHealth issues.

 

The website launch of mHIMSS.org coincides with the expansion of HIMSS into the mobile arena through the creation of mHIMSS. HIMSS is an established industry leader in healthcare innovation and technology, a non-profit organization that represents more than 40,000 members and 500 corporate members globally. While the website is open to the public, certain educational resources accessed through the site will be available only to mHIMSS members.

mHIMSS.org is intended to be an interactive destination, combining editorial content with member generated material, including tools, blogs, commentaries and videos. Anyone with expertise or experiences to share should contact mHIMSS Editor Eric Wicklund.

 

Eric Wicklund is the editor of mHIMSS.org.
