Dublin, May 31, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Mobile and Digital Health Technologies Market Report 2024-2034" has been added to's offering.

World revenue for Mobile and Digital Health Technologies Market, is set to surpass US$250.8 billion in 2024, with strong revenue growth through to 2034.

With smartphones becoming ubiquitous, their integration into healthcare systems has opened up a myriad of opportunities for improving access to medical information, facilitating communication between patients and healthcare providers, and empowering individuals to take charge of their health and wellness. One of the primary impacts of increasing smartphone penetration on healthcare is the proliferation of mobile health (mHealth) applications. These applications range from fitness trackers and symptom checkers to medication reminders and chronic disease management tools. They leverage the capabilities of smartphones, such as sensors, GPS, and connectivity, to collect, analyse, and disseminate health-related data in real-time. For users, these apps provide convenience, allowing them to monitor their health metrics, track progress towards fitness goals, and access personalised health recommendations at their fingertips.

Smartphones have played a pivotal role in advancing telemedicine and remote patient monitoring solutions. Utilising video calls, messaging applications, and secure platforms, individuals can now conveniently consult healthcare professionals from afar, eliminating the necessity for in-person appointments. This is especially advantageous for those with limited mobility, residing in rural regions, or encountering obstacles in accessing traditional healthcare services. Furthermore, the widespread adoption of smartphones presents healthcare providers and organisations with opportunities to augment patient engagement and communication.

Mobile-responsive websites, patient portals, and secure messaging platforms enable seamless interaction between patients and providers, facilitating appointment scheduling, prescription refills, and access to medical records. As of 2024, approximately 4.88 billion individuals are estimated to possess smartphones, marking a rise of 635 million new smartphone users within just the last year (from 2023 to 2024). Stats show in 2019 there were 2.27 billion users, 2020;2.67 billion, 2021; 3.01 billion, 2022; 3.62 billion, 2023; 4.25 billion users worldwide.

Digital Health Technologies Emerging as a Promising Avenue for Addressing the Challenge of Rising Healthcare Costs

The escalating costs of healthcare have become a significant concern globally, prompting a search for innovative solutions to mitigate expenses while maintaining or even improving the quality of care. Digital health technologies have emerged as a promising avenue for addressing the challenge of rising healthcare costs. These technologies leverage digital platforms, data analytics, and communication tools to streamline processes, enhance efficiency, and optimise resource utilisation throughout the healthcare ecosystem.

One of the primary ways in which digital health technologies contribute to cost containment is through the optimisation of healthcare delivery processes. By digitising administrative tasks, such as appointment scheduling, billing, and medical record-keeping, healthcare providers can reduce overhead costs associated with paper-based systems and manual workflows. This proactive approach to healthcare management can help prevent expensive complications, lower hospital readmissions, and enable timely intervention when health issues arise, ultimately decreasing overall healthcare expenses. Additionally, telemedicine platforms facilitate virtual consultations between patients and healthcare providers, often eliminating the necessity for physical office visits.

This not only reduces transportation costs and time spent traveling to appointments but also enables providers to see more patients in a day, thereby optimising their time and increasing practice efficiency. Moreover, telemedicine can enhance access to specialised care for patients in underserved or rural areas, reducing disparities in healthcare delivery and potentially preventing costly complications associated with delayed or inadequate treatment.
