Shaping a Connected Health Care Market
How Telecom operators can enable mobile health care
The Health Care industry, through telecommunications and mobility enablement, is at the tipping point of a disruptive transformation. In the near future, patients will expect to receive quality medical guidance not just during a hospital or doctor visit, but throughout their daily lives, as they already do for personal finance and shopping. The concept of care anywhere is being driven by key economic and operational factors and enabled by the convergence of advanced mobile telecommunications and health care innovation. With this convergence comes an explosion in the quantity and availability of new data and information from previously unleveraged sources such as smartphones sitting in a patient’s pocket. This data can be used to reduce costs and create better patient outcomes if it can be organized and delivered in an effective manner.
In addition to causing major changes to the health information industry, this transformation will open up opportunities for new stakeholders to enter, allowing a shaping telecom operator to take advantage. A firm that can effectively integrate a connected health care market will have access to the value from new revenue sources through services and transactions that leverage the increasingly distributed nature of care.
