On today's HIMSSCast a team of HIMSS Media editors — host Jonah Comstock, MobiHealthNews Managing Editor Laura Lovett, MobiHealthNews Senior Editor Emily Olsen, and Healthcare IT News Executive Editor Mike Miliard —talk about the developing story and try to put it in the context of digital health and health IT news trends.
