Chennai, India-headquartered Scope eKnowlege Center released a new whitepaper entitled, “Health content through mobile: emerging trends and opportunities.”

The company says with the advent of PDAs, palms and smart phones, there has been a paradigm shift in the way mobile devices are viewed, from mere recorders of personal information to a medium to create and deliver content. And according to Scope, this shift is more profound in the healthcare domain, and health information providers are taking the lead in spearheading this wave of mobile information delivery.

Scope claims its whitepaper provides insight on the key drivers of this transformation of content in the healthcare industry, existing offerings of mobile content and the key challenges publishers face.
