Platform holders like Google and Apple really control what’s going on with their phones, and fitness has become one of their main focus areas, this is great!

The Mobile Healthcare (mHealth) Bible: 2015 - 2020 has forecasted mHealth revenue to reach $15 billion in 2015. It could represent up to $290 Billion in annual healthcare cost savings worldwide. With such returns at stake there is no surprise that even the tech giants are looking to use their hardware and software capabilities to push for partnerships both on the enterprise side and consumer lead market, to gain market share.

Doug Williams VP of Engineering RunKeeper had this to say “The key for us is that platform holders like Google and Apple really control what’s going on with their phones, and fitness has become one of their main focus areas, this is great!” In addition to mobile technology he continued, “the cloud is the other area that's helping folks like us analyze and provide personalized data back to users with processing power increasing dramatically.
