The rapid development of personal communication devices, such as mobile phones and tablets, combined with an ageing population particularly in more developed countries, has created a great opportunity for healthcare delivery methods to ease access and reduce the strain on healthcare services. Near-ubiquitous mobile networks are allowing carers to diagnose, monitor, and communicate with patients with unprecedented speed and efficacy.

The emergence of low cost smartphones has allowed many users access to app stores, which are now home to over 100,000+ unique mHealth apps. These range between freemium apps geared around diet and daily fitness routines, scaling up to costly premium apps with elaborate clinical reference points, images, diagnostic, and monitoring functions. Enabling them to diagnose, monitor, and communicate with patients remotely, mHealth promises extensive cost-savings for healthcare professionals and institutions.

This has allowed many professionals and governments, especially in emerging markets are to adopt mHealth as a complementary strategy for strengthening healthcare systems and increasing populations’ access to healthcare. In developed markets, governments are choosing to utilise Telecare to improve healthcare delivery efficiency, aiming to reduce the burden on overstretched national health services and public finances.

Investment & Research has determined that the value of the global mHealth market will reach $11.05bn in 2015.
