22 October 2015 - Life Science
Denmark is the ideal starting point for mobile health companies offering the best market conditions in Europe according to research2guidance and HIMSS Europe.
As part of the largest global mHealth research programme, research2guidance and HIMSS Europe have joined forces to analyse the market readiness of the 28 EU member states via “The EU Countries’ mHealth App Market Ranking” survey.
Strong mobile health ecosystems
Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK are the top five countries offering the best market conditions for mobile health app companies in Europe.
“The report is very valuable for anyone considering starting an mHealth company, as well as for government organisations that want to benefit from a flourishing mHealth ecosystem through creating highly qualified jobs, reducing national healthcare costs and ensuring high levels of quality of care,” said Ralf Jahns, Managing Director at research2guidance.
Great for business
More than 5,000 people, including app developers, healthcare professionals and mobile health practitioners, were asked about their opinion on EU market conditions. The answers were combined with facts for each country, based on 26 market condition criteria such as eHealth adoption, level of digitalisation, market size and health expenditure, ease of starting a business and the mHealth regulatory framework.
