mHealth in the UK: Paths for growthFollow @PwC_Midlands
mHealth is defined as the provision of healthcare or health-related information through the use of mobile devices - typically mobile phones, but also other specialised medical mobile devices, like wireless monitors.
In the UK, interest in mHealth from patients, carers, commissioners and healthcare providers has never been greater. The use of ‘apps’ and innovative technology in our everyday lives is now having a knock-on effect on how, potentially, people could use mobile devices including mobile phones and other specialised medical mobile devices, communicate and gather information on their care.
The latest Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) report , commissioned by PwC, "Emerging mHealth: Paths for growth”, examines the current state and potential of mHealth in ten countries across developed and emerging markets (including the UK), the ongoing barriers to its adoption and the implications for companies in the field.
