Harry Leider, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Walgreens on the Value of mHealth.

Harry Leider joined Pat Salber (@docweighsin) at the mHealth Summit in Washington DC for a conversation about the value of mHealth.

Harry said there are 3 stakeholders that could potentially derive value from mHealth:

  • Consumers
  • Providers, health systems, doctors
  • Payer (health plans and government payers and employers)

When it comes to health plans or employers, he continued, they are usually looking for short term medical savings. For Consumers, Harry divided the mHealth offerings into 2 camps. First was Wellness and Fitness apps and on the other hand, he said, if developers come up with a tool that meets a compelling need, then, he thinks that “consumers will pay much more for those types of things.”

Towards the end of the interview, they turned their attention to Walgreens as a delivery system. From quick care clinics in the stores to filling scripts and buying health-related supplies, the basic set up of Walgreens is designed for a convenient consumer experience.
