eHealth, Telemedicine & Health informatics

The recent explosion in mobile communications has been driven by increased uptake of devices such as the smartphone and tablet. Synonymous with these devices are app stores which offer a huge array of downloadable programs and services, many of which apply to the healthcare field. As 4G and LTE promise to transform bandwidth , we expect the usage of mobile devices to expand to encompass many fields, especially that of healthcare. Visiongain has determined that the value of the global mHealth market in 2013 will reach $2bn.

The potential benefits of mHealth solutions include improving healthcare system processes, collecting and retrieving crucial medical data and patients being able to manage chronic conditions better. Mobile communications can also transform how subscribers who live in remote or rural areas access health advice and how patients in these areas communicate with their healthcare practitioners. Dedicated devices that perform medical functions can utilise mobile technologies such as the cloud allowing data to be uploaded and downloaded instantly.

The mHealth ecosystem includes mobile operators who are set to reap revenues from increased data consumption. Healthcare practitioners will find workloads decreased and greater efficiency in treatments. Software and app developers will gain wide revenue streams from the creation of popular apps or solutions either through consumer purchase or subsidised purchase by health insurance companies. Governmental bodies and pharmaceutical companies can also increase savings and revenues from mHealth.

The report covers leading companies in the mHealth space and provides information on global revenues, regional revenues, service types and end user perspectives. There are two exclusive interviews from leading members of the mHealth ecosystem provide insider information and analysis reinforcing visiongain forecasts.
