A soon-to-be released GSMA whitepaper reveals that U.S. healthcare providers, patients and consumers strongly believe that mHealth solutions have the potential to deliver significant benefits. Healthcare providers believe the primary benefits of mHealth relate to driving behavioural change among patients, whereas patients and consumers believe mHealth’s primary benefit is the ability to monitor progress towards health goals more consistently.
