Three major trends already happening in healthcare lend themselves to the revolution in mobile technology:
In the final issue, we discuss how the mHealth market will grow to nearly $23 billion by 2017 and how organisations can capitalise through scalable business models.
In the fifth issue, we explore how medical technology companies can adapt to the changing marketplace by adopting a new business model that focuses on the entire patient experience instead of just episodes of care.
PwC's mHealth explores the current state of interoperable systems, why they are so important to mhealth, and how open systems can benefit providers, payers and new device entrants.
Regulatory bodies in the United States and the European Union are beginning to increase scrutiny over mHealth solutions but over 150 countries have yet to develop regulatory frameworks or guidance.
In this second issue, we discuss ways pharmaceutical and medical device companies are using mobility to engage internal and external stakeholders and what elements need to be in place for an effective mHealth strategy.
This first installment explores how mHealth is enabling a new paradigm where applications use artificial intelligence to simulate the decision-making process, and the challenges developers must overcome to ensure solutions are useful for patients.
