Last week (8/26/10) Paul H. Keckley (Executive Director, Deloitte Center for Health Solutions) issued an excellent and thought provoking brief entitled, The Mobile Personal Health Record: Technology-enabled self-care (Get the PDF Here)

In the brief Keckley makes the following point:

“The personal health record embedded in mobile communication devices – mPHR – is the “killer app” that may change the game for providers, consumers and payers.”

As the mHealth industry grows exponentially we are all interested in what will truly be the killer App(s), this brief could truly be prophetic. There is much to like about this brief, but in discussing barriers to adoption one statement in particular is worth noting:

“The barrier for providers lies in making the legal medical record distinct from the patient-entered data, both technically and operationally.”

This is truly exciting for us at Diversinet! We are now shouting this as loudly as we can… WE HAVE THE ANSWER! Our MobiSecure® platform as the mobile front end to a providers PHR of choice not only secures the sharing of the “legal medical record”, but patient-entered data as well…

Read this great brief… And Stay Tuned!
