Possible uses in Health via the mobile

Here's a link from Alfred J. Fortin'S( PhD) blog. He gives us a long list with a variety of thoughts and ideas how to use the mobile phone and interaction in the healthcare sector. Its written shortly but I assume that these ideas can lead some of us for deeper thought and brain storming concerning this part of Health 2.0.

Pubget- save time while searching on Pubmed

Pubget is aiming to give you the ability of searching the same as in pubmed with an extra value such as getting the articles in a PDF's version immediatley without time consuming clicks and passing through several linkages for reaching the desired content or download it.

Of course , some of the content, especially the newer one, is avialable only after registration to the content resource but still there are a lot of resources which are free of charge and others can be reached via pubget after formal registration.

There will be probably more advanced apllications through Pubget in the future.

Google's Health - Is it going to be the leader in this sector?

Yesterday I read an interesting article published at
Its abouts Lively, Google's virtual world which turned to be so far a flop.
Mark Evans wrote in his blog about some other misses and swings of Google in other web sectors such as Orkut for example, in the social communities sector.

Others as me wrote about the leading power of google's project in the health 2.0 world. Im not changing my view.Im still thinking that Google will have a tremendous influence in the E-Health sector, but still, this article just explain us that probably many others, already here and yet to come, firms and start-ups, are going to bring and create enormous positive competition on the Health 2.0 sector.
