Brian Dolan, Editor, MobiHealthNewsFor the past few years MobiHealthNews has published quarterly reports on the state of mobile and digital health, but moving forward those paid reports will take the form of Friday Exclusives -- the Friday edition of our daily newsletter -- and In-Depths on our website. They will be free for all to read thanks to our generous sponsors and advertisers.

Last week we published our Q1 2014 review and like most quarters for digital health, the past three months were eventful.

Among arguably much more important events, Apple hired a whole lot of medical sensor experts for some unknown reason – most suspect for the rumored iWatch. More NBA players started wearing health tracking devices. The Google Flu Trends debacle got some scholarly attention. Disney helped launch a tooth brushing app for kids. Facebook bought a virtual reality company for $2 billion that it might use for remote doctor visits someday. And a company called HealBe said it had developed a device to passively track caloric intake.

As we do every quarter, the MobiHealthNews team rounded up the emerging trends, investment announcements and digital health news summaries categorized by health care stakeholder (provider, payer, pharma, government, and so on.)
