The 2016 mHealth App Developer Economics Study Has Been Launched. Take Part Today!

Share your experiences and insights in the world’s largest annual study into the 2016 mHealth app economy today.  

2015 was another fascinating year for mHealth. By the fourth quarter, we had reported that the total number of mHealth app downloads worldwide had reached 3 billion from 165,000 app solutions on the market, making the mHealth industry worth  $10.2bn. Despite such progress, few developers have successfully monetized their solutions. Few apps have been effectively integrated into patient pathways or the daily routines of healthcare professionals, whilst traditional health care players continue to proceed cautiously into the space.

We’re proud to announce the launch of our 6th mHealth App Developer Economics Study to investigate  how some of mHealth’s biggest challenges might be tackled in the coming years.

Last year, more than 5,000 industry experts participated, contributing to the largest study on the global mHealth app market available.

For the 6th edition  of our  study we’re trying to find out:

  • Which business models are most effective to succeed in mHealth today?
  • Which app categories are most successful in meeting the demands of both patients and investors?
  • What does the relationship between Health Insurers and mHealth look like in 2016?



Are you an app developer, publisher or perhaps a healthcare professional using mHealth apps for your work? Do you hold a position in a Pharma, Med-Tech or Health Insurance company that oversees mHealth activities or has an interest in mHealth or digital health technologies?

If so, we’re inviting stakeholders from across the industry to share their experiences of working in mHealth to find out what is proving successful today and what might prove successful in the near future.

What You Receive for Completing Our Survey:

  • The chance to view initial results immediately after completing the survey
  • A free copy of the mHealth App Developer Economics 2016 report

We’d like to warmly invite you to share your experiences and opinions concerning the current and future state of mHealth.
