With the rising expenses and aging of population, the healthcare industry is changing rapidly the way it's operating. Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases is also working as a catalyst for the change.
"According to a new report published by IHS Technology,
the number of patients worldwide using tele-health services will rise from less than 350,000
in 2013 to roughly seven million in 2018. Additionally, the report estimates that revenue
for tele-health services will surplus tenfold, from $440.6 million in 2013 to $4.5 billion in
2018. The report's authors point to the introduction of mobile health hubs and projected
growth in wearable technology as catalysts for such growth."
