iHealthbeat, now on iPhone

Sam Karp, Vice President of programs at the California Healthcare Foundation, wrote me yesterday to let me know that iHealthBeat is now available as a downloadable application for the iPhone, and of course I downloaded it immediately.

This is a quick and easy way to follow a required news source for anyone interested in health information technology. Plus, the entire archive is searchable, for those times that you ask if organization X is engaged in technology innovation, or what the latest data about adoption and use is. I might also add that the user interface reflects some of the elegance that Sam carries in his work. Give it a try and see what you think. It’s great to see our nation’s most innovative philanthropies embracing the technology tools that people use.
