Beyond ourselves: this could be an overview of our activity since the first issue of Smart Health was launched and reached hospital computers, professional associations, patient associations, sector influencers and companies. The world of eHealth and mHealth has suddenly awaken, and it has done so with powerful sectorial strength, knowing for sure that innovation, technology and business get together in an outstanding emerging sector.
In our printed pages and on our website (with figures that have risen exponentially) “expert” profiles find the proper geosystem to showcase all they know; “talent” profiles have an opportunity to share the knowledge generated in their new projects, and companies are given their spot to show their progress and success cases. Besides, all the information on the activity undertaken by our institutions, as well as a long list of events, is provided.
We were extremely proud when the Barcelona mayor (both as a doctor and as a mayor) honoured us by being a guest writer in our first issue. We are now equally thrilled to have Christine Rusell -vice-President of HIMSS, the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society that fosters global solutions for the optimization of information technologies in healthcare- give us some words as well as a significant collaboration agreement.
This a publication with personal names: scientists, business leaders and researchers that may spread out the information people are waiting for; the information people are wishing for. From our humble though self-respecting position, we hope to make our contribution for our citizens (who are, after all, the main reason for our actions) to have a better life.
This is a legacy to leave our children.
