As I mentioned, this week I was able to attend the mHealth Summit in DC. While the weather outside was terrible (reminds me to be grateful I live in Las Vegas), the show had a lot of really interesting people. I took some of my favorite tweets from the event and thought I’d share them with you in case you couldn’t attend.

Didn’t see too many practicing doctors at the event. See my previous post about the mHealth Digital Divide.

The word disruption sells a lot of books, but doesn’t sell a lot of health IT software.

A little health humor for those doctors who are reading this. He’s right. Not much viral spreading in healthcare IT.

This is an issue. I call them perverse incentives.

Of course, we’re still waiting for this change to happen.

It’s a little bombastic to say hospitals will be obsolete. They won’t and it won’t even be close. Even if you want to see a doc at home, there will still be procedures that need to be done somewhere (ie. at hospitals).

I guess we leave it to a song writer to play with words. I want Dr. Eisenberg as my doctor.
One of my favorite moments from #mHealth13: Watching people dodge the robot doctor in the exhibit hall. Most weren't sure how to react.

That will change. People reacted the same way when I was wearing Google Glass.
