Governments Assume Greater Role in Development of Smart Healthcare Products
“While government bodies have always played a pivotal role in the shaping of a nation’s healthcare industry, they have till now shown little interest in the development of the smart healthcare products market. This is changing fast, however, as recent developments have created quite a stir among several nations in the developed economies. This, added to the steady recovery rate of economies post the recession, the improving GDP, along with a growing global population and healthcare reach, is creating a massive demand for the global smart healthcare products market,” states a TMR analyst.
For instance, China is implementing a smart healthcare system that will be protective, successful, helpful, and reasonable for its citizens. This system is expected to be fully operational in urban and rural areas of the nation by 2020. India is also joining into the global smart healthcare products market’s development through a heavy implementation rate of smart healthcare infrastructure, along with conjoined practices such as boosting diet and nutrition awareness, enhancing the usage of critical treatments, and modernizing the existing infrastructure.
Global Smart Healthcare Products Market Hampered by Growing Security Concerns
A serious problem that the global smart healthcare products market needs to tackle currently is the growing concern among clients regarding the integrity of these products. With the added modes of connectivity within a healthcare organization through the use of smart healthcare products, comes an added risk of external users capturing or manipulating the data stream. While the risks of data security exist in both paper and electronic record management, the risk is significantly higher for electronic modes and needs to be safeguarded sooner.
“A key factor working in the favor of the global smart healthcare products market right now is the growing expenditure in the healthcare industry. Although it is not impervious to market fluctuations, growth rates are still maintained in the favorable range due to the massive upswing in demand by emerging economies,” adds the analyst.
