Don’t expect the seemingly endless parade of new wearable wellness trackers, mobile devices, and medical apps to slow in the coming year. Mobility in healthcare, or mHealth, was the hottest topic in healthcare this year, and according to a survey conducted by Frost & Sullivan, it will continue to be hot into 2014. Frost & Sullivan, a research firm, surveyed more than 1,800 executives in more than 40 countries to identify the hot healthcare topics for 2013 and also make predictions for 2014. More than half of the respondents (51%) identified mHealth as a hot topic, followed by cloud computing in healthcare (45%) and regulatory changes in reimbursement models (44%). In a press release, Frost & Sullivan said, “mHealth expansion has been fueled by the unprecedented spread of mobile technologies, as well as advancements in their innovative application to address health priorities.” The firm specifically mentioned wireless vitals monitoring, GPS telemonitoring systems, and Bluetooth-enabled health trackers as key opportunities in mobile health. Frost & Sullivan also predicts every hospital facility will eventually have to acquire a fully-enterprise wireless solution to accommodate the growing use of mHealth. So what can we expect from the mHealth market in 2014? There are already a number of innovative products that are expected to be released in 2014, including the Scanadu Scout, which is billed as “the first Medical Tricorder”, as well as an edible body sensor from Proteus Digital Health. And those are just the products we know about. Be sure to stay tuned.
