Technological Advances in Communication and IT Bodes Improves mHealth's Adoption Rates
Security Concerns Hamper the Technology's Widespread Adoption
Healthcare is on the brink of significant breakthroughs in personalized and preventive medicine due to the rapid advances made in IT and communication. Technologies such as electronic medical records, remote monitoring, and communication platforms are industrializing the clinical diagnostics sector, consequently promoting mHealth. mHealth helps provide personalized disease management tools that help better manage predicted symptoms, chronic illness, and episodic acute conditions. Empowered by connectivity tools and data transfer capabilities, mass healthcare delivery and subsequently, mHealth solutions are poised for considerable success. As more healthcare IT and patient monitoring tools are integrated, every hospital facility will have to acquire a full-enterprise wireless solution
"Meanwhile, the rising survivability rates of patients with cardiovascular disease and other debilitating conditions and ageing of the patient pool will test the efficacy and validity of mHealth solutions,” said Technical Insights Research Analyst Prasannavadhana Kannan. Doctors are favoring mobile technology buyouts as it can help meet most of their needs including monitoring patient compliance, assessing patient records, and communicating with their global counterparts. Enhanced patient care is a major benefit prompting doctors to adopt mHealth for healthcare delivery.
Doctor's referral initiatives will go a long way in boosting the uptake of mHealth solutions. It is important for physicians to highlight the features and benefits of mHealth services and applications so that end users are aware of the potential of mHealth solutions in reducing health risks and improving healthcare efficiency. Technology developers are conducting extensive research to understand core mobile network technologies that integrate monitoring capabilities with mobile platforms. Within the next three to four years, developers are expected to gain a superior understanding of the nature of security breach concerns and take necessary precautions.
