Video: Profile of an mHealth doctor

By Brian Dolan

Here's yet another video, this time from BNET.tv, that profiles a primary care physician who makes use of a mobile tablet and other health IT to enable better and more efficient care for his patients. Dr. John Selle in San Francisco says he can pull up lab results, x-rays and even quickly search the Internet should he need to find an answer to a question while in the examining room. Dr. Selle has also set-up a Q&A section on his website that allows his patients to ask him non-urgent questions, which he usually answers in three days.

Next up for Dr. Selle? Finding ways to engage patients while they are at home. I bet mHealth could help.
