mHealth is a branch of eHealth dealing with the collection of patient data. The patient data is collected and stored using the mHealth application and is reviewed by health care professionals to determine the severity of the medical condition. Wireless electronic devices like mobiles, wearable devices, and others play a key role in collecting patient data. The data which is collected is stored on a remote cloud using mHealth applications.
Rapid advancement in mobile technology and software, an increase in mobile applications, and New opportunities for mobile health integration into existing eHealth systems, and continued growth in mobile cellular network coverage are majorly driving the global mHealth market growth.
Growing penetration of the Internet and cell phones is significantly contributing to the growth rate of the market. In many low- and middle-income countries, the penetration of smartphone networks surpasses other infrastructure, such as paved roads and electricity, and dwarfs the fixed deployment of the Internet.
Y-O-Y growth in the prevalence of chronic diseases is forecasted to favor the global mHealth market growth.
Good outcomes have been reported for managing chronic diseases, improving symptoms of chronic pulmonary diseases and symptoms of heart failure, reducing death. According to WHO, the Global Burden of Disease Study estimates a prevalence of 251 million COPD cases worldwide in 2016. In low- and middle-income countries, more than 90% of COPD deaths occur. An estimated 17.9 million people died in 2016 from CVDs, representing 31% of all global deaths. About 85% of these deaths are due to heart attack and stroke. In low- and middle-income nations, the prevalence of diabetes has risen more rapidly than in high-income countries. An estimated 1.6 million deaths by diabetes in 2016.
Significant cost savings in the delivery of healthcare is another crucial aspect supporting the global mobile health market.
These networks are increasingly advanced, providing higher and higher data transfer rates alongside cheaper and more efficient handsets, improving the way health services and information are accessed, distributed, and handled. The chance of greater personalization and citizen-focused public health and medical care comes with improved accessibility.
Reducing premature mortality from co-morbidities with non-communicable disorders and non-communicable diseases. Other possibilities for using mobile devices include raising awareness about the primary risk factors for non-communicable diseases. Improving the diagnosis and monitoring of illnesses and self-care and home care, and overall chronic illness management. These are some driving factors that boost the mHealth market.
The increased use of wearable smart medical devices, beneficial policies in government is driving the growth of the mHealth market.
Governments express interest in mHealth as a complementary strategy for improving health systems in low- and middle-income countries and achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) related to health. MHealth is used in maternal and child health and poverty-related disease burden reduction programs, including HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis (TB).
The rise in privacy concerns is one of the primary factors hampering the global mHealth market growth.
Lack of sufficient knowledge in remote areas for the utilization of applications through smartphones and strict rules by the government in approving some applications are some of the other factors showing a significant impact in restricting the growth of the mHealth market to some extent. The shortage of skilled technicians to maintain the applications more effectively is challenging for the mobile health market.
COVID-19 impact on the global mHealth market:
The 'silent transmission' of coronavirus triggered by asymptomatic citizens, sometimes unknowingly, is a major challenge in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a safe way to mitigate the impact of the pandemic by using mHealth technology such as mobile applications and wearable sensors, which can help track COVID-19 patients and suspected cases. As we read, one nation after another is being shut down by COVID-19. The coronavirus pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on everyday lives across the globe. As part of its dire effects on the global economy, the virus has contacted every single industry. But its impact on the healthcare industry was seismic.
Increasing COVID-19 cases across the world are escalating the demand of the mHealth market. By maintaining social distancing, the adaption of digital health services is growing during the Covid-19 pandemic. Hence, the revenue for the mHealth market during COVID- 19 is on-demand and is likely to increase. The largest share is seen in 2019 besides the total share for the mHealth sector. Digital health experts make it possible to crowdsource disease tracking through the mode of coronavirus tracing software.
Ongoing study amplifies the research process to ensure that the underlying issues of COVID-19 and potential strategies forward are included. The study offers insights into COVID-19, considering changes in consumer behavior and demand, buying patterns, supply chain re-routing, current market dynamics, and governments' major initiatives. This will be particularly beneficial in times of a pandemic, such as the outbreak of COVID-19, when governments have asked people to maintain social distance. The patch is the result of a collaboration between Northwestern University and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab. This patch may be attached to the throat, monitor lung movements, and control breathing sounds for coughing and other Coronavirus problems. This will include the telemedicine process as a means of diagnosis and assistance in proper treatment without the possibility of increasing contact and spread of coronavirus.
