Some time last month, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) quietly filled its long-vacant Director of Healthcare Initiatives position, responding to a call made last September by its mHealth task force. The FCC’s appointee, Matthew Quinn, is no stranger to healthcare innovation. With a background in two previous government agencies and a number of large and small healthcare companies, Quinn brings a range of experience to the role. It’s recently been announced that one of his first duties will be to advise an HHS workgroup on mobile health regulation. MobiHealthNews caught up with Quinn last week on Day 6 of his new job.


Matt is no longer with the FCC. You can keep track of his career moves on Linkedin. Here is his Linkedin page: https://www.linkedin.com/pub/matthew-quinn/6/20b/12b
