DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Mobile Health (mHealth) Technologies: Global Market Prospects - Featuring Expert Panel Views from Industry Survey 2017" report to their offering.
The report Mobile Health (mHealth) Technologies: Global Market Prospects - Featuring Expert Panel Views from Industry Survey 2017 provides a comprehensive analysis of the mHealth landscape. The survey gathered experience and opinion on the use of mHealth, and insights on key trends for the present and future use of these technologies, particularly within the pharmaceutical industry.
The uptake of mHealth technologies will increase in the near future as the overall healthcare industry continues to shift towards value-based medicine, and the need to clearly demonstrate the value and effectiveness of medical interventions grows. Support from healthcare professionals (HCP), reimbursement entities and government agencies will also increase as the body of literature documenting the wide range of benefits of mHealth continues to grow. Furthermore, the continued acceleration of mobile penetration at a global level will continue to make mHealth services and solutions possible, even in the most remote areas.
Non-profit organizations such as the mHealth Alliance and the World Healthcare Organization (WHO) advocate the increased use of mHealth, particularly in underserved communities where poor infrastructure, non-availability of experts and doctors, and lack of medical education have hampered the provision of healthcare. A key benefit of mHealth technologies, if not the most important one, is their ability to fulfill this unmet need and provide continuous healthcare at a distance.
Moreover, mHealth technologies such as dose reminders can improve healthcare outcomes and reduce complications in chronic conditions by optimizing treatment compliance. For instance, 95% of diabetic cases are estimated to be self-managed, and mobile and Bluetooth glucose sensors have been developed to help patients to optimize drug dosing, reducing the risk of non-compliance and improving life expectancy (Diabetes UK, 2009). Significant advances in devices, sensors, monitors and mobile applications (apps) have seen the development of cost-effective portable diagnostics to remotely manage and monitor disease.
