Key Quotes

“The business case for pharma to engage in mHealth makes a lot of sense. But pharma has been quite slow to really embrace things in mobile health in a strategic or systematic way.” Dr. Patricia Mechael, executive director, mHealth Alliance

“There is substantial opportunity for pharmaceutical companies to be involved; it’s just that they have to walk that fine line between providing a service to the patient population and having what they’re doing viewed as just a kind of marketing. As soon as it gets perceived as the latter, all the alarm bells will go off.” Dr. Satish Misra, managing editor, iMedicalApps
