Here’s the excerpt from the link that matters:

Africa has passed Western Europe in the number of mobile connections during the final quarter of 2010, Wireless Intelligence reported on Thursday.

The new report said that African mobile connections reached 547.5 million during the final three months of 2010, up nearly 20 percent from the previous year.

In comparison, Western Europe reported 523.6 million connections, or an increase of less than one percent from 2009

That’s a pretty amazing thing to consider. No wonder I saw someone on Charlie Rose last night that was talking about Africa as a great opportunity for people to grow their business. Some of the coolest mobile healthcare projects that I’ve seen are happening in places like Africa. It’s no wonder why mobile healthcare is so popular considering this growth.

A few months back I got to know Anne Zeiger and brought her on as a blogger for a little while on EMR and EHR. She’s since moved on to a full time job writing about EMR and has started to create the website EHR Outlook. It’s still in the really early phases, but you can see a vision for what she’s trying to create.

Anne is currently looking for more doctors who use an EMR so she can create some case studies of doctors’ EMR experiences. I know that I always learn best by looking at other people’s experiences, so I’m happy to help Anne find more doctors she can work with to create more case studies on EMR. If you’re a doctor or practice that would be willing to help Anne out, you can email her at: anneczieger@gmail.com

I’ll be interested to see the EMR case studies that she creates. If you know of other EMR case studies, feel free to point them out in the comments.

Also, I just started looking for advertisers for Neil Versel’s blog Meaningful HIT News and my new EMR and Healthcare IT News site if anyone’s interested in some new advertising opportunities. Just drop me a note on my contact us page.
