As a new edition to the diabetes online community I am looking forward most to the potential for mobile health to change diabetes care delivery. We have read about it in the research for a few years now, and it seems a culmination will soon unveil itself. With more competition and improved physician participation mobile health solutions should improve access to diabetes education and to diabetes professionals while providing even the uninsured or untreated a more viable avenue to improve their health. Obviously we have a vested interest in this subject, but from a more personal viewpoint I see mobile health positively influencing many whose lives otherwise could potentially be ravaged by diabetes complications in the future. Looking forward to a new breed of caring in 2012, and better health all around.
Thanks to DMSA for their continued and sincere efforts in the field.
