Wireless communication is transformation of information over a distance without aid of wires, cables or any other form of electrical conductors. The distance of transmission can range from few meters to thousands of kilometers. In the healthcare industry, wireless communication is playing a vital role in transformation of information; however, the technology is still at the nascent and is expected to have massive adoption in the foreseeable future. There is increasing demand in the healthcare industry to retrieve, store, share, and send data in various format to various devices across a particular healthcare institutions. Various consideration are required to be made while implementing wireless communication within a healthcare institutions such as systems capacity for transmitting voice, data, and video information as well as its reliability and coverage. Few of the wireless devices used across the healthcare institutions include laptops, tablets, personal digital assistants, and healthcare smart clothes that monitor heart rate and blood pressure.
Wireless Communication Technologies in Healthcare Market: Drivers and Restraints
Increasing number of ageing population who requires continuous health monitoring is one of the factors which have triggered the concept of wireless technology driven human body, and is the primary factor driving the adoption of wireless communication technologies in the healthcare industry. Examination of human body can be achieved using a network of intelligent wireless medical devices sensors which may be attached to the body surface or integrated in the tissues. It enables doctors or nurses to predict and diagnose adverse events in advance. However compatibility and interoperability issues across various healthcare device working on different communication technology are hampering the growth of the wireless communication technologies market.
North America region represent largest market opportunity for wireless communication technologies in the healthcare market. The U.S. and Canada are spending huge amount of money in healthcare IT to address chronic diseases.
