Mobile Health Market Forecast
It’s Time for the Medical Industry to Adopt Mobile Health Tools
There have been some clear disagreements between doctors and patients over the past few years about how to handle their healthcare information. According to a recent survey completed by Medscape and WebMD, 84 percent of patients reported that technology should be used to assist in the diagnostic process; however, only 69 percent of doctors agreed with the idea. The two groups did generally agree on other areas such as using smartphones for routine blood tests.
Through this survey, we are seeing an overall shift in feelings about mhealth. Both patients and doctors are embracing new technology, especially mobile, being used in medical practice. This will have a significant impact on the future of healthcare.
Mobile Health (mHealth) Market Forecast 2014-2024 : A Revolution in eHealth, Telemedicine, Informatics & Connected Health
The advent of connected devices and M2M is offering a tremendous opportunity for healthcare professionals. Near-ubiquitous mobile networks are allowing carers to diagnose, monitor, and communicate with patients with unprecedented speed and efficacy.
mHealth is a term used for the practice of medicine and health services, through mobile devices. In its most common form, it refers to using mobile communication devices, such as smartphones and tablets, for health services and information. mHealth applications include the use of mobile devices in collecting community and clinical health data, delivery of healthcare information to practitioners, researchers, and patients, real-time monitoring of patient vital signs, and direct provision of care, via mobile telemedicine.
The emergence of low-cost smartphones has allowed wider access to app stores, which are now home to over a million mHealth apps. These range between freemium apps geared around diet and daily fitness routines, scaling up to costly premium apps with elaborate clinical reference points, images, diagnostic, and monitoring functions.
Austerity measures have forced many health departments around the globe to rein in their spending and find more cost-effective ways of operating. Enabling them to diagnose, monitor, and communicate with patients remotely, mHealth promises extensive cost-savings for healthcare professionals and institutions. This new industry will also pay dividends to network operators, software developers, and data platform management providers who may turn their core competencies onto the medical field.
Visiongain forecasts the mHealth market to reach a $6.7 billion value by the end of 2014.
