"At Google we are obsessed with speed. Our mantra is faster = better. This is true for our Google Voice mobile apps as well. When you want to make a call, your phone should connect you as quickly as possible, whether you’re calling via Google Voice or not.Google Voice is a great feature/service and I'm looking forward to trying the enhanced app.
Today we are launching an enhancement to the Google Voice mobile app on Android and Blackberry phones, which makes placing calls much faster. We call this feature “direct access numbers.” Here’s how it works:
Until today, the Google Voice app had to make a request to the Google Voice server every time you wanted to make a call to send us the phone number you wanted to dial. Then the call would be connected via a Google Voice access number. With direct access numbers, we assign a unique phone number to every person you call. This means that we no longer need to use your data network to access the server each time you make a call, so calls will be placed much faster.
The updated Android app is available from Android Market starting today. For Blackberry users, you can download the app by visiting http://m.google.com/voice from your mobile device. You will need a valid Google Voice account to use the app, and at this time, Google Voice is available in the US only.

Today's physicians need to know so much medical information that many of us find it useful to supplement our human brains with electronic peripheral brains. Dr. Joseph Kim wonders if we should be concerned about our dependence on our peripheral brains— and tells you how to be prepared, in the event you ever lose that smart phone or device you depend on.Today, most medical students and residents carry a PDA or smartphone as a “peripheral brain.” These electronic devices are rich with information because they are connected to the Internet. Are we growing too dependent on these devices? Or, has the wealth of medical information simply grown to surpass what we’re able to handle?

The World Congress is pleased to announce its 2nd Annual Leadership Summit on mHealth. The purpose of this conference is to provide the emerging mHealth eco-system (i.e. providers, payers, policy-makers, device manufacturers and telecomm carriers) with insight into the clinical efficiencies and business opportunities for integrating mobile technologies into the care delivery model.You can learn more about this event here.
The technology is maturing. The infrastructure is in place. Consumer interest and demand is on the increase and the outcomes-based case for mHealth is growing. So if widespread adoption is to occur, the current fee-for-service reimbursement system needs adjustment or new payment models must be created that incent providers toward adoption. For some time now, the industry has identified the business model issue as the sticking point -- Who will pay for mHealth?
