About Open mHealth

More people on earth have a mobile phone than have access to clean water. Apps on these phones can help us stay healthier by collecting and delivering data about our own health. But with today’s mHealth apps, the data is coming at users unfiltered, rather than being processed into more useful guides for action. This problem is only going to intensify as all kinds of new sensors and apps are developed that generate even more data.

Open mHealth is a non-profit startup building an open source way to break down the barriers between health and tech so that experts can share, reuse, and work together to improve data tools and techniques. Open approaches have been shown to accelerate innovation and solutions in many industries, and it can do so in mHealth too. With open approaches, mHealth will reach its full potential faster.
