Mobile health apps improve patient health. Hype or reality?
Digital Health has been a hot market space in recent times with investors collectively pouring $26 billion since 2010 and over $7.2 billion just last year.

In fact, mHealth Apps were the largest funded category in digital health, with over 325,000 apps available by end of 2017.
Technology: The Missing Link to Patient Satisfaction
Industries that have matured on managing customer satisfaction, like airlines or retail, understand that expectations around service quality, delivered quality and communication are key drivers of consumer satisfaction.
