Preliminary results from research2guidance’s latest study reveal the growing importance of health insurers as a distribution channel for mHealth solutions. Experts also see great potential to save costs in preventing or shortening hospital stays through mHealth adoption, whilst respondents believe mobile solutions are most positively influencing follow-ups and monitoring as stages along the patient journey.
Now in its sixth year and targeting stakeholders from across healthcare, research2guidance’s mHealth App Developer Economics program has become the largest annual study into the global mHealth market ecosystem. Last year’s survey alone gathered insights and opinion from over 5,000 stakeholders. With this year’s survey in full swing and counting more than 2,000 participants already, researchers at the Berlin-based consultancy are today sharing some preliminary findings.
