The rise of mhealth and top five mhealth apps in India
The Covid-19 pandemic brought a change in the way world has worked. Almost every country had to put a strict lockdown at least in the initial phase of the crisis, bringing a complete shutdown of normal services and life all around with people being forced to stay inside. During the lockdown, the focus of hospitals was on the Covid-19 patients and because of nature of the virus, a number of hospitals had to be assigned for the Covid-19 related patients only. The forced lockdown and hesitancy in people also has put more importance to mobile health applications. At present, there are over 400,000 mHealth apps available in the app stores. According to Global Market Insights, the global mHealth market is estimated to reach $289.4 billion by 2025.
