Disease Management Industry and High-Tech Adoption

This report examines the current state of the disease management industry, highlights the challenges and opportunities facing the industry, and discusses technology’s role in driving innovations in new care management models.

“Once hailed as the solution to the chronic epidemic, the disease management service model is facing growing skepticism,” said Harry Wang, Director, Health and Mobile Product Research, Parks Associates. “After a ten-year boom period, this industry is at a crossroads again. The market calls for DM 2.0, a model relying on not only human expertise but also many high-tech tools.”
