The past year has been one of tremendous growth and new opportunities for both MEMOTEXT – one of the pioneering mHealth companies – and mHealth as a whole. The two trends that power the mHealth revolution; increased usage of mobile technology and the move towards decentralized and personalized health care, have continued unabated.
