Introducing mHealthWatch.com   mobileStorm for Healthcare mobileStorm mobile marketing watch mobile healthcare technology mobile healthcare content mobile healthcare mobihealthnews mobihealth MMW MHW mHealthWatch mhealth content mHealth Jared Reitzin AppMail AdAge Power 15 AdAge A post from mobileStorm CEO, Jared Reitzin

4 years ago when I bought mobilemarketingwatch.com (aka MMW) I wanted to give something back to the mobile community. I employed writers to write about anything they wanted as long as it provided businesses with news and information that would help their business grow. As consumers move to a smartphone-based society, businesses have to expand their knowledge about mobile and the many ways they can engage with their customers. Whether you’re a marketer trying to drive someone to make a purchase or a healthcare plan trying to keep your customers healthy to save money, mobile is the platform of choice for reaching your customers and influencing their behavior.

At mobileStorm we are heavily invested in the healthcare space, recently developing a proprietary HIPAA-compliant secure mobile messaging platform called AppMail.
