Here are a few examples on how state and local governments are using mobile apps to increase efficiencies, deliver real-time information to local citizens, improve public safety and boost revenue.

Title: Military Health Systems and Mobile Technology

The MHS wants to go mobile – and has, in many ways, with 10 apps now available for free on iTunes and Google Play through the Department of Defense’s National Center for Telehealth and Technology (T2), including one that tracks anxiety, depression and other symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. The U.S. Army is nearly halfway into a five-year deal to use Diversinet’s mCare platform for communicating with wounded soldiers and also tracks the health of some special forces with Zephyr Technologies monitoring gear.
