It appears that Skype will be jumping into the mHealth or mobile health market. According to several sources, Skype is a sponsor for the upcoming mHealth Summit in November. That meeting will be held in Washington D.C.
I use Skype all the time and I think it would be a great way to tap into the consumer health market. After all, think about how many people you could reach by leveraging PayPal and other eBay businesses. Mobile devices are becoming more sophisticated with video conferencing capabilities. I still remember when the concept of a video phone call was truly a "dream."
