Mobility and Personalized Health Technology - Webinar

I want to call attention to a webinar coming up tomorrow, Wednesday, July 13th at 1 PM EDST.  It sounds very interesting and is addressing an area in healthcare that I find very intriguing.  Here is some background:

Healthrageous is a personalized health technology company spun out of Boston-based Partners Healthcare. The company uses biometric devices to collect key health statistics from its users, integrating that data with personal profile information to create customized, long-term health programs. As a start-up company, Healthrageous understood from day one the need to embrace mobility. Healthrageous’ native mobile application, h!GO, provides users with instant access to health data and progress reports, and serves as an extension of the company’s core platform.

Healthrageous originally planned to either custom develop h!GO using its in-house team or build a mobile web application. But, as the company analyzed all of the pros and cons of both of these methods, it realized that utilizing a Mobile Enterprise Application Platform (MEAP) would allow it to build, deploy, and update its app more quickly, easily and cost-effectively - all key considerations in today’s market.

Healthrageous’ CTO will be discussing the lessons learned from his mobile development experience, and why short development cycles and speed to market were critical to their success.
