Favorable government initiatives, including awareness campaigns and research funding for healthcare IT, to improve medical care accessibility are expected to drive the mHealth services market growth. According to data published by GenomSys in May 2023, mHealth initiatives in Italy have demonstrated the efficacy of using mobile devices to deliver health solutions cost-effectively. Some of the mHealth services applications using mobile devices include:

  • Patients utilize smartphones for health education and to communicate with healthcare professionals.

  • Healthcare providers can easily access updated clinical guidelines, collaborate with peers, analyze data, receive diagnostic support, and engage with patients.

  • Adherence and disease management are facilitated through smart alerts, which notify physicians of noncompliance with prescribed medications based on remote monitoring data, prompting timely intervention.

Moreover, mHealth services collect patient data to add it to national health information systems. These services serve as remote information tools, primarily on smartphones or tablets, offering support to the healthcare system and aiding in identifying individual & community health needs within clinical settings.

The surge in initiatives and investments supporting mHealth & digital health involves significant backing from venture capitalists, private equity firms, and healthcare organizations. The global health-tech investment landscape witnessed a substantial boost in 2021, reaching over USD 44 billion, which represents a twofold increase compared to the previous year. This influx of capital underscores the growing importance of technological innovation in healthcare. Notably, large tech-enabled platform companies are emerging as key players, offering the potential to enhance hospital and health system efficiencies, rapidly scale operations, and modernize existing systems & delivery models. In addition, these platforms are positioned to play a pivotal role in addressing health equity concerns through a comprehensive and inclusive approach to healthcare delivery.
