Everyone seems to be talking about “mobile health”, or mHealth, and exalting the power of ICT for health. Somehow, it seems that if we are not incorporating ICT in our health programs today, we have missed the train to successful health outcomes.

EnCompass is the prime contractor, and leads a partnership of superstar organizations that represent ICT excellence.
