This report provides a comprehensive overview of digital health technologies and key players you need to know in order to successfully complete (or work) in this market. It also explains the key terms so you could better understand how the market works. Also detailed are the digital health efforts of the Big Tech firms.
Introduction to Digital Health
Healthcare is one of the last industries waiting to be "properly" digitized. As such, it represents a massive opportunity for a number of players, including tech giants, startups, hospitals - as well as individuals involved in the industry.
This report is created for those looking to enter this fast-growing sector and help all of us get better healthcare. Cause sooner or later, everyone will need it.
Major strides have been made by a number of players but there is still a lot of room for growth.
You probably know someone who recently did a CT scan only to get it on a CD or DVD. Why not put it in the cloud, instead?
Also, if you have one of those activity trackers or a smartwatch, shouldn't your doctor and/or your insurance provider know how much are you walking - presuming you do walk or exercise a lot. This could potentially be valuable information that could inform your doctor about the course of your (future) care, or get you on a better plan with your insurance company.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg. There are many different technologies and new approaches that will ultimately improve healthcare. We'll go through what we think are the major areas and highlight some of the key players. Also, this report talks about what the Big Tech is doing in this market.
Who should buy this report?
You probably already know Big Pharma is investing millions in digital health technologies. After all, it is easier and more affordable to launch a digital therapeutic than develop a brand new drug with all the lab work and trials, let alone regulatory requirements, that come included with a brand new drug launch.
Digital health apps and services provide insurance companies and other payors with tools they could offer to their customers so they could lead healthier lives. As a result, payors get to save money and offer better, more personalized services - i.e. the more you walk every day, the lower premium you end up paying. Ultimately, such incentives also lead to better outcomes.
The growth of digital health saw many non-traditional players entering the space - software developers being one of them. They see there's money to be made by helping doctors and hospitals digitize their businesses while providing patients with that much better services. This help software developers find their niches in the market and even potential partners.
Digital health is the industry every job seeker should try to break into. It is growing fast, offering huge opportunities for everyone looking for a great career. The best part is that you don't have to be a software developer - there are job openings across the board, including in marketing, sales, social media, PR, admin, and more.
