14 Jun 2013 • by Natalie Aster

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.

According to the report “World Mobile Healthcare (mHealth) Market 2013-2018: eHealth, Telemedicine & Health informatics” by Visiongain, 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.
