This IDC Health Insights study discusses the mobile health trends and emerging technologies adoption in Asia/Pacific as hospitals and organizations step up their technology infrastructures. In this study, IDC Health Insights seeks to explore why and how mobile technologies should be leveraged as an additional channel for healthcare service delivery. In addition, the challenges involved in implementing mobile technology will be highlighted and will also offer several examples of lessons and best practices on mobile health implementations.
"With the increasing popularity of mobile devices, healthcare provider organizations will have to consider mobile technology initiatives to boost their existing or upcoming service transformation efforts," says Sash Mukherjee, senior market analyst, IDC Health Insights. "The rapid advances in social networking, emerging devices, and complementary technologies will also push healthcare providers to rethink their modes of patient services, wellness outreach, and program delivery."
"Mobility as a technology has been a game changer for the document management industry" says Suchitra Narayan, senior research manager, IDC Asia/Pacific Services. "While it adds convenience, transportability, and ease of access, security does remain a concern. Productivity improvements and convenience may tip the scales over security, but this remains to be seen in a highly regulated industry such as healthcare."
