Parks Associates Releases Mobile Carriers and Wireless Healthcare Opportunities Report

Parks Associates released research in Mobile Carriers and Wireless Healthcare Opportunities that reports more than 40 million smartphone owners are active users of at least one wellness or fitness app.

"Digital health is an important part of the Internet of Everything, and wireless carriers need to align their connected health businesses with their larger connected living strategies," said Jennifer Kent, Director, Research Quality and Innovation, Parks Associates, in a release. "Mobile carriers have multiple opportunities to provide value for business customers and consumers, though the landscape differs significantly by region.

"U.S. mobile carriers are focused on providing enterprise services, like cloud storage and teleconferencing solutions, to their healthcare provider clients. However, carriers can play a valuable role in the consumer space. Given their established relationships with consumers, expertise in providing consumer-facing services, and connection to consumers' mobile devices, carriers can bridge the divide between care providers and consumers, particularly in regards to health data collection and transfer as well as communications between providers and patients."
