Research and Markets: Global Wireless Medical Technologies Market 2011-2015 Report Discusses That One of the Major Challenges Is the Lack of Basic IT Infrastructure

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vxz5sv/global_wireless) has announced the addition of the "Global Wireless Medical Technologies Market 2011-2015" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Wireless Medical Technologies market to grow at a CAGR of 24.81 percent over the period 2011-2015. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the inaccessibility of remote locations. The Global Wireless Medical Technologies market has also been witnessing the growing adoption of electronic medical records. However, the lack of basic IT infrastructure could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Key vendors dominating this market space include Cisco Systems Inc., GE Healthcare Ltd., Philips Healthcare, and McKesson Corp.

The other vendor included in the report is Siemens AG.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Telecom team said: ''One of the key trends is the growing adoption of electronic medical records (EMRs). These help hospitals keep track of patient records efficiently by reducing the loss of data. EMRs facilitate better analysis of a patient's medical history, which improves the quality of the service provided by hospitals.''

According to the report, one of the drivers is the inaccessibility of remote locations because wireless medical technologies can help provide better healthcare services in rural areas. With the help of these technologies, patients can interact with doctors efficiently and hence, healthcare standards can be improved.
