Health Check: Key Players in Mobile Healthcare, Pyramid Research analyzes trends and strategies related to mHealth, which include how emerging and conventional technologies are being used to improve access to and results from healthcare in both developed and underdeveloped countries. It analyzes technological and behavioral trends for using mHealth technology on a wide variety of devices, describes the latest devices and software for delivering and distributing mHealth content and services and provides case studies that detail current mHealth applications. Developments and opportunities related to the growth and implications of mHealth applications and services are also discussed in the report.

Health Check: Key Players in Mobile Healthcare is an up-to-the-moment overview of the emerging mHealth market, focusing on a variety of conventional, hybrid and new technologies that are creating new business models.

Key findings include:

  • About 70% of people worldwide are interested in having access to at least one mHealth application, and they’re willing to pay for it. Much of the resistance toward mHealth applications thus far has centered around costs — the costs of developing the services, educating healthcare providers, patients and payers about them, and how to justify such costs for reimbursement purposes.
  • Technology and telecommunications providers are well positioned for developing, extending and marketing mHealth applications. Many of these players already have established relationships with healthcare providers and payers, and many benefit from large, global scale.
  • Countries with large populations and limited healthcare options (such as India and South Africa) are the most interested in mHealth. Countries with these characteristics represent a significant opportunity for MNOs, OEMs and others in the technology ecosystem because mobile phones are the predominant form of communication, as landlines are extremely limited and broadband lags behind in development.

Key questions answered include:

  • What is the current state of mHealth?
  • How can mHealth seriously cut costs for public and private healthcare providers?
  • What are the obstacles facing the growth of mHealth services?
