According to Juniper Research, revenues from remote patient monitoring services that use mobile networks will rise to $1.9 billion globally by 2014. Other analyst and research firms have even larger projections of $4.4 billion by 2013 in the U.S. market alone (up from just $304 million in 2009).

With these types of projections, mHealth (or mobile health or telemedicine) is a massive opportunity for medical device manufacturers to extend patient care to households.
