MobiHealthNews is the publication of record for digital health, providing news, analysis, and data to innovators at provider groups, payers, pharma companies, tech and venture capital firms as well as startups. For more than a decade, MobiHealthNews has identified and contextualized the emerging trends in digital health helping its readers shape what's next in healthcare.
The company was founded by Brian Dolan and Joe Maillie in late 2008, publishing its first article in January 2009. In 2015, HIMSS Media, a subsidiary of HIMSS, agreed to purchase the site and the MobiHealthNews team became a part of the HIMSS family, joining sister publications Healthcare IT News and Healthcare Finance News.
In 2018, MobiHealthNews merged with HIMSS Europe subsidiary The British Journal of Healthcare Computing to launch MobiHealthNews UK and MobiHealthNews Europe. Established in 1984 in print and now published online only, The British Journal of Healthcare Computing (BJ-HC) is the UK’s longest-running health IT publication. With a focus on the positive news within the NHS, BJ-HC's mission has been to give readers high quality, independent reportage on health IT news and events in the UK, as they are happening.
Shortly thereafter, MobiHealthNews launched its Asia Pacific edition, followed by Thai- and German-language editions. More global expansions are planned for the future.
MobiHealthNews publishes daily — both online and via its must-read newsletter (free signup here), which includes special in-depth issues every Friday. And to make sure you don't miss anything, MobiHealthNews also offers a weekly newsletter edition that rounds up the most important and interesting articles from the week.
