Mobile Healthcare Applications Development: Challenges and Opportunities

March 15, 2012

The Mobile Software Development SIG Presents…

The mobile health app market will grow to $392 million over the next five years, a 70 percent increase, according to new data from research firm Frost & Sullivan. Applications on the mobile devices are turning out to be a source of tremendous patient empowerment. mHealth (mHealth or mobile health) as is commonly known has the potential to radically transform the way in which we diagnose, track and treat disease. Frost researchers predict that not only will new users buy health apps, but also that existing customers will continue to buy and use more mHealth apps. Calling 2011 the “tip of the iceberg,” researchers say that low barriers to market entry will continue to lure new vendors, although they note that U.S. Food and Drug Administration oversight and security concerns mean it won’t be a hassle-free endeavor for new startups.Today there are mobile healthcare applications bridging the gap between doctors and patient and there are applications to monitor all aspects of the body and health. Many more are being developed and many more new thoughts and ideas of how we view health and wellness are coming into existence very rapidly. Developing these successful next generation healthcare and wellness applications goes beyond traditional data collection and sharing. It means navigating the regulatory waters, developing to various standards and creating compelling and even entertaining applications for uptake and usage. This discussion will cover the process of creating Mobile Health Applications and how it encompasses end-to-end solutions that facilitate continuous access to health care information, expert advice, or therapeutic intervention—enabled by remote sensing, ubiquitous telecommunications networks, and smart systems and platforms.
