Fun in San Diego next week: mHealth & Healthcamp

Next week there’s post-Labor day health care fun in San Diego.  and Healthcamp San Diego is the day before (Sept 6). Both are run by good health care friends—Peter Waegemann and Claudia Tessier (who used to run TEPR) now run the mHealth conference, and Gregg Masters is running Healthcamp.

There do seem to be rather a lot of mHealth conferences this year—I won’t start talking here about my disdain for the term—but this is the one in the nicest place and is probably the best value for money! And the keynote is another friend and very interesting techie doctor, S. Cal Permanente Group’s CMIO John Mattison.

Check out the conference program for details and online registration to the mHealth Conference.
