The healthcare industry faces many challenges that are contributing to rising demand for healthcare services and increases in associated costs. Healthcare providers and patients are looking for cheaper, more cost-effective solutions. Technology can solve these issues by enhancing the quality and cost-effectiveness of patient care and support and moving healthcare services from the hospital to the home. The proliferation of smart home technologies has supported this transition by engaging consumers with easily accessible real-time information through web portals and mobile apps.
Yet, these connected devices and applications are only the first step along a spectrum of the more advanced healthcare services technology can enable. This spectrum of home healthcare is ripe with opportunity for stakeholders-from technology startups to service providers to large tech incumbents-to engage consumers, explore new business models, and create new revenue streams in the home. The nexus of Internet of Things (IoT) and health ultimately puts power in the hands of consumers and enables self-care, which is revolutionizing the healthcare industry and contributing to the emergence of healthcare as a value proposition for the smart home.
This Navigant Research report examines the emerging digital health industry, with a focus on how IoT is disrupting healthcare and moving it to the home. The study discusses how the convergence of smart home value propositions provides new opportunities for stakeholders to introduce innovative digital health solutions to bring efficiencies and enhancements to a traditional market. It also provides recommendations on how players in the smart home and health industries can address the smart home lifestyle and seize digital health market opportunity while there is momentum.
