Growth in the number of mobile phone users and wireless subscribers, and advances in the innovative application of communication technology to address health priorities have the potential to transform the delivery of healthcare across the world. This provides significant opportunities for companies looking to invest in the telecare sector.

Espicom/BMI defines telecare as the use of mobile and internet technology to provide clinical care and non-clinical services, such as health education, disease surveillance and drug monitoring.

It is our view that a combination of factors – including the continued growth in demand for and delivery of healthcare, the sustained growth in mobile and broadband subscribers and penetration rates and the growing sophistication of the infrastructure of communication networks – is driving new opportunities in telecare across the globe.

We expect this to create significant revenue-earning opportunities for companies operating in both the developed and emerging worlds.
