As a result, the application developers are increasingly focusing on developing more secure and multi-featured mobile health applications.

Based on application, the global healthcare mobility solutions market is segmented into the following categories

  • Enterprise Solutions
  • mHealth

By Application

In 2014, enterprise solutions were the largest contributors to the global healthcare mobility solution market, accounting for over half of the market revenue. The dominance of enterprise solutions can be attributed to the robust demand from the patient care management segment. Over the forecast period 2015 - 2022, the patient care management sub-segment is anticipated to witness healthy growth, driven by superior benefits offered by mobility solutions in patient care, including less response time, improved workflow efficiency, efficient patient care, and increased patient monitoring, among others. Although enterprise solutions are expected to remain the major application segment, the mHealth application segment is expected to exhibit maximum growth, growing at a CAGR of 26.5% during the 2015 - 2022. The advent of mobility solutions has completely revolutionized the healthcare industry, leading to a swift transition from on-premise care to personalized care. Mobile health applications have shown that they have the power to offer seamless healthcare service by eliminating geographical challenges/limitations. In addition, mobile health applications have made it easier for healthcare service providers to offer services to the large number of patients remotely and at a lower cost. As such, growth in the mobile health market is expected to spur market demand in the coming years.

By End User

Based on end-use, the healthcare mobility solutions market is categorized into the following segments:

  • Payers
  • Providers (Healthcare service providers including hospitals, clinics, laboratories, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities)
  • Patients (Individuals)

The healthcare service provider segment covering hospitals, clinics, laboratories, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities accounted for the majority of healthcare mobility solutions market revenue share in 2014. In order to upgrade and restructure their service offerings, healthcare service providers are increasingly deploying sophisticated mobile technologies within the facility. With the advancements in technology, healthcare service-providing facilities are witnessing an alarming increase in the deployment of advanced connected devices such as mobile devices, bar code scanners, and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) scanners, among others. As a result, healthcare service providers were the largest contributors to the healthcare mobility solutions market in 2014. Although providers are expected to remain the largest contributors to the global healthcare mobility solutions market, the patient (individuals) segment is expected to exhibit maximum growth during the forecast period 2015 – 2022. The anticipated growth can be attributed to increasing consumer health care awareness. In addition, the growing need for home healthcare services coupled with the increasing healthcare expenditure is expected to drive the uptake of healthcare mobility solutions among consumers across the globe. The payers segment is also expected to witness healthy growth during 2015 – 2022.
