Here is my iPhone4 front page…

I cant live without this device.  Virtually 100% of all the calls I make and receive are on my iPhone.  I’ll share with you a couple of Apps that I use everyday that can streamline the way you stay informed as to what is happening in the mHealth industry or any industry that you are interested in following.  Have you ever been reading a website or article and thought’ “I’d like to keep that.”? Here are some Apps for you:

NewsRack: NewsRack is an app that I use everyday both on the iPhone and iPad.  It is a front end to Google Reader that allows you to continually keep up with RSS feeds.  I currently track about 150 sources including 30 or so directly related to mHealth and Healthcare IT.

InstaPaper: Instapaper is an app that I run on the iPhone, iPad & Mac. It allows you to create a collection of things you want to read later or save.  Whenever you see a web article or piece of data that you want to save you just click “Read Later” and it is saved for you in IP.  I use it every day.

Evernote: Finally my favorite business app!  Evernote stays totally synced on the Mac iPad and iPhone and is the best note keeping and filing system around.  I use it to take daily notes and notes in meetings.  Its feature list is a mile long, but the beauty of EN is that wherever I am 24/7, I have every note from every meeting at my finger tips… If you are in a crucial part of a meeting and want to record what is being said you simply hit the microphone icon and you can record the meeting and EN puts an icon right at that point in your note and the recording is also available wherever you are.

I would love to hear what apps you use on a daily basis in your work life that helps you be more productive and customer centric… Enjoy!

I do all of my reading on the road on my iPad.  Just ask and I’ll be glad to give you a demo.  From the WSJ (Daily – a great App) to books for both business and pleasure.  Plane rides and downtime on the road is a lot easier with a good book., and I have just read one.

I am just about finished with Malcom Gladwell’s Outliers – The Story of Success.  I first heard about this book in early 2009 after reading a NY Times Review.  I’m glad I waited to read it until now.  As we are putting our team together at Diversinet to aggressively enter the mHealth market with a unique set of products and services, we want to write our own, “story of success”.

Although aimed primarily at  individual “outliers”, the traits of success that Gladwell points out in his book have a lot in common with where we are as a company. The NY Times review summarizes them as “Chance & Circumstance”.  We fully admit there is a little bit of “Chance” or “Luck” in the following facts: (A) Diversinet has the most robust mobile security platform in the industry PERIOD. (B) The mobile healthcare market is primed to explode over the next few years and (C) That Federal guidelines (HIPAA) mandate that all personal health data must be secured…So yes… We are in the right place at the right time.

However, the real story is the “Circumstance” or the 10+ years and close to 80M that we spent as a company developing, patenting, and designing our technology for the mobile market that was yet to fully mature.  Remember, when our MobiSecure® platform was in the original design phase, there was no such thing as an iPhone, and “Apps” were not part of the American dialog and pop culture.

Take the time to read Malcom Gladwell’s Outliers, its a great read and just might give you a new way of looking at success…what we are all trying to achieve.

The iPad With Diversinet is a game changer!

Diversinet is changing how the iPad is used in healthcare.  Epic and other HIT companies are extending their applications on to mobile devices like the iPad.  This is exciting for the users and the industry in general.  Tablets and other devices that cost thousands of dollars and have abysmal battery lives can now be replaced by the iPad that costs much less and can run all day. The problem is that these application must be run inside the hospital/IDN firewall to be secure and HIPAA compliant.

Diversinet’s Apps (Including MobiSecure® SMS) and platform enabled applications are secure on the iPad both in wifi on the hospital network AND under 3G once the device leaves the hospital or clinic… Truly a game changer!
