-- Heath care is now jumping on board to be a part of the ever-growing mobile application world with a projected 44 million mobile health application downloads by the end of this year and 142 million by 2016 according to Healthx, a health care solutions firm. HIT Consultant Founder Fred Pennic speaks with Diversinet CEO Dr. Hon Pak about his company’s strategic direction of powering care coordination through mobility, how mobility is driving Meaningful Use, mobile security and the Army’s mCare Program.
“As the delivery of health care shifts to a patient centered health care model, care coordination and mobile devices will become increasing critical to healthcare,”
said Pennic. “Dr. Pak is a proven leader and visionary with his detailed focus on patient engagement and care coordination and will help Diversinet strengthen their ability to become one of the industry leaders to mobilize care coordination.”
