Nancy Green: Mobile health is a huge component to fixing some of what's going on in health care. As we move toward mobile health, and being able to provide as many tools as we can to the patients -- which are our consumers -- and to the clinicians, and the interexchange of that information for better health care, the faster that movement will happen.
