I'm excited to share that HIMSS Media has acquired MobiHealthNews.
The entire MobiHealthNews editorial team – Jonah Comstock, Aditi Pai, and I – are joining HIMSS Media. Apart from more content from me – this deal has kept me busy in recent months – the MobiHealthNews you know (and hopefully love) won't change.
As part of the deal, my good friend and Mobi co-founder Joe Maillie is moving on. He and his wife are expecting a baby boy any day now, and he's going to take some time to enjoy that while considering his next move. (If you have any ideas, he'd be happy to hear from you!)
Way back in 2008 – in the depths of the economic recession – when MobiHealthNews was first conceptualized, there were no digital health publications. (I also had next to no white hair as the 2008 headshot featured in this post shows.)
Today digital health has become one of the most important opportunities, not just for healthcare organizations, but for the world's biggest technology companies too. Chronicling this important trend and interviewing those driving it forward continues to be an incredible experience.
Joining HIMSS Media will bring big things to our publication. It will enable us to create and launch new products in the coming months that will help us serve you, our readers, even better. We can't wait to get started.
