The world has gone mobile, and healthcare technology is going mobile with it

Patient Engagement needs to go mobile according to a new report published by peer60.

Over 250 United States-based healthcare leaders participated in this report regarding mHealth. Over 90 percent of respondents indicated smartphone technology is important in the effort to successfully engage patients in their own care.

“The world has gone mobile, and healthcare technology is going mobile with it,” peer60 CEO Jeremy Bikman said. “Software vendors, with patient-focused solutions, who adapt their systems to work elegantly on mobile devices will see increased market share in the coming months and years.”

The market for vendors with smartphone-based patient engagement solution is wide open. Only 21 percent of hospitals have this technology, though another 12 percent are sure to purchase in one of these solutions this year. Only 14 percent of respondents indicated their facility does not have plans to get smartphone-based patient engagement solutions.

“This research indicates healthcare IT vendors have an outstanding opportunity over the next 18 months,” peer60 Vice President Tyler Page said. “We’ll be curious to see who steps up and delivers what the market desperately wants and absolutely needs.”
