Recent data from comScore noted that the audience of mobile users turning to their smartphones for health information surged 125% in 2011.  16.9 million mobile users in the U.S. accessed health information on their device during the three-month average period ending November 2011.  This audience is mostly young and tech savvy.  They are the leading edge of a coming wave of “mHealth” applications.  There will be multiple new players emerging from a slew of VC backed start ups and micro-cap tech companies that will be potential members of our portfolio.  We are currently exposed to the trend in both public and private portfolio companies.  The following chart from comScore is unambiguous.  Jeb Terry, Sr. February 8, 2012
