A.D.A.M intros Medzio Mobile Health Partners

For you iPhone-ers (and there are lots and of you–30 million plus was the last number I heard) there’s somePhone3-4-1 exciting news (that actually concerns Health 2.0 and THCB too). A.D.A.M has launched a new platform on the iPhone. It’s called the Medzio Mobile Health Network and (of course as it’s promo Health 2.0 Meets Ix week on THCB) it will be launching officially in Boston on Thursday. (FD A.D.A.M is a Health 2.0 Conference Sponsor, and Health 2.0 & THCB will be providing content to the network).

I got in a little (friendly) trouble with the folks at A.D.A.M last year for mentioning that they’d been around a while in the eHealth space, but they are not resting on their laurels. They’ve seized on the iPhone as a platform and now are adding information from a host of partners—not to mention taking their own content and converting it for the iPhone and adding more new features for searching health services to it. And then they’re creating a platform that others can join onto.

This is a really interesting way for health information, and increasingly services, to be delivered where people are. And it gives a strong hint about how people will be accessing health care in the future.  All a click away on iTunes. We’ll be bullying one of the Health 2.0 iPhone contingent to write a review shortly….

I have an iPhone and have download the app being discussed here. I tried to use the symptom component to actually try and figure out what was wrong and what to do. I had knee pain. I clicked on the knee inside the symptom checker and all I got was a bunch of content about what knee pain was, etc. This didnt address my symptom (I had a few others) and it didnt tell me where to go for care or when. In other words, it was useless. It seems that lots of folks think putting the same kind of… Read more »


Matthew, no worries – you’re out of the doghouse… Lots of good discussion about how mobile fits into Health 2.0 at the conference.

Health info isn’t just 1-on-1 with your doctor anymore! Or even home at WebMD.

I am happy to hear this. I myself had called few companies to discuss the potential of creating a product for EHR/EMR purposes. As I seee the debates here EHR vs PHR, acceptance, cost, etc., it comes to me is that one can develop a product which can address all these. In my view mobile technology will be a bridge among lots of things…EHR, doctor, PHR, patient, wellness, records, patient tracking, medical chip, etc. It can be done much cheaply, much robust, and with many more features Are you listening ATT, TMObile, Cerner, ALlscript! Call me if you want to… Read more »
