It is not very often that a new industry emerges, and especially one that has true staying power. While the mHealth industry hasn’t been here for long, technology developers are preparing for the protracted boom that’s already begun. This includes software developers, smartphone developers, gadget developers, and, of course, app developers.
In a new report from Visiongain, some of the methods technology developers are using to prepare were discussed. mHealth technology holds the potential to change the way in which everyday health concerns, emergency health concerns, and ongoing health concerns are managed. But without adequate hardware and software solutions in place, the promise of mHealth will be missed.
mHealth has the potential to increase accountability and make healthcare experts easier to access for those who live in remote areas, as well throughout local counties, states, countries, and continents around the globe.
Even though the mHealth industry is still young, Visiongain estimates that the industry will be valued at over $6.5 billion globally by the end of 2014. Once consumer adoption really begins to take off, it is expected to do nothing but grow, expand, and evolve.
