As healthcare shifts towards a patientcentric value-based healthcare system, increasingly healthcare providers will adopt mHealth solutions that enable them to increase productivity and improve efficiencies. In addition, patients are taking a more active role in their health and well-being on the go utilizing mApps, connected devices and wearables to monitor health conditions and provide actionable outputs.

Study Goals and Objectives
The goal of this study is to provide a comprehensive analysis of the mobile health (mHealth) market by reviewing the recent advances in technologies that have driven the field forward. It examines global market trends and opportunities for mobile operators, vendors and industry providers that support the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry. The report’s main focus is to identify the challenges and opportunities that exist in the mHealth market following its applications to improve healthcare tracking, consumer education, healthcare services as a whole as well as its important role in pharmaceuticals and clinical trial management. It aims to identify companies and institutions that are leading the field, providing innovative solutions to enable digitized information and enhance the collation and distribution of real-time patient generated data within the healthcare system to ultimately improve health outcomes and efficiencies as well as to help streamline drug development programs and product submissions.

Reasons for Doing This Study
Mobile health is a rapidly emerging market. Over the past decade, mobile technologies have become part of our daily lives largely due to improvements in wireless infrastructure and connectivity and the rapid development of smartphones and other devices to send and receive information. Many sectors such as banking, retail and navigation have rapidly adopted wireless technology and communication systems, providing hardware/software solutions to enhance the collation, interpretation and communication of information, connecting businesses and customers; expanding market access and global reach through personalized solutions that can empower the end user.

The global healthcare industry continues to face significant challenges to deliver high-quality care to a heterogeneous, expanding and aging population. Mobile telecommunication platforms have already started to demonstrate their value to solve some of these issues to provide accessible and cost-effective solutions in the diagnosis, treatment and management of acute and chronic diseases. In developed economies, mHealth solutions can help speed up the regulatory approval process, enhance the transfer of medical information between healthcare professionals and improve diagnosis and treatment decision making, while in the developing world, it has led to improvement in real-time monitoring of epidemics and more effective mobilization and utilization of medicines and medical services. mHealth technologies are no longer a nice to have but a must-have technology enabling companies to more effectively compete within the pharmaceutical arena.
