Global Digital Health Market

The global digital health market is growing at a significant rate, due to growing demand for advanced healthcare information system, and growing investment by healthcare information technology (HIT) players. The growing need for remote patient monitoring services, increasing support from government organizations and growing demand for mHealth technologies are also driving the growth of the global digital health market. However, the factors such as privacy and security issues, inadequate healthcare infrastructure in developing economies, and high capital expenditure and maintenance requirement are inhibiting the growth of the global market.

Digital health technologies, such as electronic health records (EHR), digital diagnostic systems, and wireless technologies comprises a range of data including patient history, immunization dates, medication, allergies, diagnosis, radiology images, laboratory and test results, insurance information, and treatment plans. Moreover, the digital health technologies help to improve communication between patients and healthcare providers to reduce medical errors for better coordinated care. These technologies also help to share information with other healthcare organizations and providers, such as medical imaging facilities, emergency facilities, laboratories, clinics, and pharmacies.

Some of the key companies operating in the global digital health market include AT&T Inc., Cerner Corporation, Cisco Systems Inc., General Electric Company, McKesson Corporation, Koninklijke Philips N.V., Qualcomm Incorporated, eClinicalWorks, Allscripts Healthcare Solutions Inc., athenahealth Inc., and Epic Systems Corporation.
