2013 Healthcare Benchmarks: Mobile Health

Used a smartphone app for health reasons lately? Chances are your patients and health plan members have, too.

The use of mobile health technologies (not simply wireless) to monitor health is revolutionizing the exchange and consumption of healthcare data. From mobile apps that monitor blood sugar and heart rhythms to text-based medication reminders, mHealth technologies could save from $1.96 billion to $5.83 billion in healthcare costs by the year 2014, some studies indicate.

2013 Healthcare Benchmarks: Mobile Health delivers a snapshot of mobile health (mHealth) trends, including current and planned mHealth initiatives, types and purpose of mHealth interventions, targeted populations and health conditions, and challenges, impact and results from mHealth efforts.
