Mobile health apps deliver amazing results. Healthcare mobile app development has changed and improved the life of the entire healthcare industry.

These changes and improvements continue.

While the core of healthcare services remains intact, the industry itself is ripe for technical disruption. Technical companies are moving deeper into the healthcare space—and vice versa. CEOs of health plans and health systems seek partnerships with outside organizations. They look for secure, efficient, and cost-effective ways to store and manage patient data.

Healthcare apps are gaining trust among patients.

Patients share personal information with their doctors through apps. According to Deloitte study, depending on the region, 28% – 53% of respondents said 1) they shared their personal information with doctors, and 2) they were willing to share essential information with family members in case of an emergency.

eHealth policy receives strong governmental support.

Technology-enabled care (TEC) remains the aim of many programs. It is a major growth point for patient-centered medical services. Digital solutions enable patient independence and patients’ active participation in a treatment process. Norway’s government encourages specialized health services at the patients’ homes. Remote interpretation is the core of this plan.

For the same cost or even less, TEC helps overcome negative trends in the industry, including:

  • growing care dependency
  • increase in chronic diseases
  • ballooning healthcare costs and unequal access to health services
  • overworked clinic staff due to an aging society

Despite the benefits, healthcare application development faces significant challenges. Although digital transformation is inevitable, the transformation pace is lower than the demand.
