Hey Open mHealthers, this is Open mHealth’s (http://openmhealth.org) first ever Meetup event. And we launch it in NYC! Given the recent and exciting news about Apple's ResearchKit, let's talk about what it means, how it impacts Open mHealth and what this might mean for the future of clinical research. Open mHealth is a non-profit that makes it easy for developers to share and integrate digital health data with the right clinical context. Learn more about Open mHealth’s technical offerings (http://github.openmhealth.org).
