Wearable Computing Devices will exceed 485 Million Annual Shipments by 2018

Wearable Computing Devices will exceed 485 Million Annual Shipments by 2018 | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Wearable computing devices are projected to explode in popularity over the next year and with a wave of new gadgets set to hit the consumer market, could soon become the norm for most people within five years. ABI Research forecasts the wearable computing device market will grow to 485 million annual device shipments by 2018.

 

Currently, sports and activity trackers account for the largest chunk of wearable technologies shipped today. Smart activity trackers are widely available, and the device’s trendy and stylish appearance makes them very popular with a broad range of customers. It is estimated 61% of the wearable technologies market is attributed to sport/activity trackers in 2013.

Throughout the world, governments are grappling with the growing challenge of providing quality, affordable healthcare. Increasingly, they’re turning to technology for the solution.

In the Asia Pacific region, the challenge is particularly acute. Healthcare costs are rising and putting pressure on many government budgets. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare calculates annual spending on healthcare services now exceeds $A 6,200 per person. Other developed countries in the region are facing similar burgeoning costs.

ABI: 100M remote patient monitoring wearables to ship in next 5 years | mobihealthnews

ABI: 100M remote patient monitoring wearables to ship in next 5 years | mobihealthnews | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Over the next five years, ABI Research expects 100 million wearable remote patient monitoring devices to ship.

This growth, ABI said, is in part a result of providers who are more aware of the benefits remote patient monitoring wearable devices can provide to patients outside of the hospital. ABI adds that because of the growing interest in these devices, there’s a bigger opportunity for platforms that collect data from several devices and apps, for example Apple’s HealthKit.

While HealthKit hasn’t officially launched for the public yet, Apple has secured partnerships with many healthcare companies. The company announced its partnership with EHR vendor Epic Systems when it unveiled the product, but since then, there have been rumors that Apple is also in talks with Allscripts, and various providers including Johns Hopkins, Mt. Sinai, and the Cleveland Clinic.

“Data has traditionally resided in silos belonging to specific applications delivered primarily by device vendors themselves,” ABI Research Principal Analyst Jonathan Collins said in a statement. “New cloud platforms capable of collecting data from a range of vendor devices and sharing it securely with a range of related parties including patients, healthcare providers, and payers will drive adoption and bring more connected devices to market.”

In February, ABI reported that health and fitness wearable computing devices will be a main driver of the 90 million wearable devices that are expected to ship in 2014. Shipment estimates for healthcare wearables were approximately 13 million in 2013, but will reach 22 million in 2014, and 34 million in 2015. Health and fitness wearable shipments were 32 million in 2013, but will be 42 million in 2014, and 57 million in 2015.

This year, another research firm, Berg Insight, predicted 19.1 million patients around the world would be using connected home medical monitoring devices by 2018, up from three million in 2013. The firm also said remote patient monitoring revenues reached $5.8 billion (4.3 billion euros) in 2013 and are expected to grow to $26.4 billion (19.4 billion euros) by 2018.

Mobile Applications for Diabetes Self-Management: Status and Potential

Mobile Applications for Diabetes Self-Management: Status and Potential | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology, Vol. 7, Issue 1 Jan. 2013.

El-Gayar, Timsina and Nawar.

 

ABSTRACT

Background:
Advancements in smartphone technology coupled with the proliferation of data connectivity has resulted in increased interest and unprecedented growth in mobile applications for diabetes self-management. The objective of this article is to determine, in a systematic review, whether diabetes applications have been helping patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes self-manage their condition and to identify issues necessary for large-scale adoption of such interventions.
Methods:
The review covers commercial applications available on the Apple App Store (as a representative of commercially available applications) and articles published in relevant databases covering a period fromJanuary 1995 to August 2012. The review included all applications supporting any diabetes self-management task where the patient is the primary actor.
Results:
Available applications support self-management tasks such as physical exercise, insulin dosage or medication, blood glucose testing, and diet. Other support tasks considered include decision support, notification/alert, tagging of input data, and integration with social media. The review points to the potential for mobile applications to have a positive impact on diabetes self-management. Analysis indicates that application usage is associated with improved attitudes favorable to diabetes self-management. Limitations of the applications include lack of personalized feedback; usability issues, particularly the ease of data entry; and integration with patients and electronic health records.
Conclusions:
Research into the adoption and use of user-centered and sociotechnical design principles is needed to improve usability, perceived usefulness, and, ultimately, adoption of the technology. Proliferation and efficacy of interventions involving mobile applications will benefit from a holistic approach that takes into account patients’ expectations and providers’ needs.

There is good perspective to mobile health (ehealth) applications to self management in diabetes. However, as this research review suggests: we need to know more about use and socio technological influences. As I repeat myself: ehealth mhealth is NOT about technology: it is about implementation. Let's go for that!
