The reach and ubiquity of mobile handsets is a magnet for many applications and industries. Banking, payments, gaming, media, social networking, location-based services, and many other applications have transitioned to the device because of its popularity, its flexibility, and its almost permanent proximity to its owner. As an industry and as a service, healthcare is no different. However, the issues that the healthcare industry faces and the motives for leveraging mobile handsets are in many ways unique. A range of approaches are being examined and trialed and a growing dialog between the mobile industry and healthcare providers is taking place.

This report examines the achievements the healthcare industry has made so far and the potential for the following five years. The report examines the growth and potential in this market driven by two key criteria: the ability to download applications to mobile handsets and the potential for wireless-enabled wearable devices to connect to mobile handsets using ultra low power connectivity. The report assesses the market for handset use for sports, well-being, and healthcare applications. The study includes an assessment of the market for downloadable sports and healthcare applications, as well as the potential for wearable devices to connect to mobile handsets. While mobile handsets support a range of healthcare-related services, such as SMS-based information and appointment alerts, as well as voice calls for advice and emergencies, these applications lie outside of the scope of this report.
