On our trip over to the US in late 2009 we spoke to Niels Helkov from Orange Business Services about e-health. Niels explained to us why e-health was so important to the US market. His key points include:
- The importance of e-health in the US healthcare market - particularly to help with chronic diseases;
- How technology developments, such as M2M, have spurred the e-health market;
- Why involving all different parts of the e-health value chain is essential;
- The solutions that Orange is working on in e-health.
After a Masters in Computer Science, I decided that I preferred writing about IT rather than programming. My 20-year writing career has taken me to Hong Kong and London where I've edited and written for IT, business and electronics publications. In 2002 I co-founded Futurity Media with Stewart Baines where I continue to write about a range of topics such as unified communications, cloud computing and enterprise applications.
