Digitised Healthcare

With 2.4 billion smartphone users worldwide and the rise of sensor and wearable technologies, it provides a variety of opportunities for medical institutions, their owners, doctors and nurses.

The possibilities of medical applications are virtually limitless. Functions can range from delivering high-quality patient care to increased prevention, improved workflow and minimizing the time and cost for the healthcare providers.

Moreover, mobile technology is less expensive, more accessible, and easier to use than existing cloud solutions, which makes it an attractive opportunity for the enterprise.

However, despite healthcare being one of the largest and most profitable industries today, many experts have identified it as one of the most underserved in terms of mobile technology.


“Health care is becoming more digitized and consumer oriented. It’s not an overnight change, but more like how summer turns into fall – gradual yet very perceptible.”

Greg Scott, Principal, Deloitte Consulting

How’s mHealth Different?

Building successful applications for healthcare differs from traditional enterprise software and consumer apps.

In addition to technology, it requires a deep understanding of the user’s needs as well as regulatory requirements related to handling of data, interoperability requirements with a range of health systems and integration with back-end systems.

Likewise, it’s not just about building a new technology with a great design. Success comes from human-centered research and a design that engages users in shaping the product.

Lastly, about 90% are abandoned within the first month. The greatest challenge for mHealth is building a product that engages users while keeping them focused on ‘getting things done’ rather than the product itself.

“…the electronic medical record will be the minor player, in terms of where a person’s health history lives. Most of that information will be kept on the phone or in a secure cloud, and the patient will be highly engaged with collecting, curating and sharing that data. Most doctor visits will be like calling up a YouTube meets virtual human docs and there will also be an aspect of virtual reality.”
