Research and Markets: Global Connected Health M2M Services Market 2014-2018 with Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Apple, Athenahealth, GE Healthcare Dominating

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/svd34j/global_connected) has announced the addition of the "Global Connected Health M2M Services Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The Global Connected Health M2M Services Market to grow at a CAGR of 30% to 2018

One of the main drivers is the increase in the aging population. Some developed countries such as the US, Canada, and those of Western Europe are witnessing an increase in the population of people aged over 50 years. Also, the average lifespan of the population in these countries is high and is known to be around 80 years.

The Global Connected Health M2M Services market is witnessing an increase in demand for remote healthcare monitoring. There are more than 2.2 million patients who use montoring services, of which 20-25 percent uses mobile services for monitoring. There is an increase in healthcare awareness among customers and they are regularly monitoring their health status, thus helping the market to remain customer-focused. Further, with the help of embedded technologies such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, monitoring quality improves, thereby increasing the speed of healthcare delivery. This will make healthcare delivery easy for service providers and provide a precise monitoring application for patients' healthcare.

Further, the report states that to access M2M applications for healthcare services, high-speed wireless networks are very important. Although many developed countries have a large number of small local area networks, the lack of high-speed broadband connections in hospitals inhibits the adoption of connected health M2M services. Also, developing countries such as India, China, and countries in the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America have only limited high-speed broadband network coverage. This hinders the growth of the market.

  • Allscripts Healthcare Solutions Inc.
