M2M developments will be very important in Healthcare. With an aging population in most developed countries it is increasingly difficult to provide high quality services to old and/or sick people with the financial resources available. Use of M2M solutions to prevent, detect and cure illness and allow people to spend less time at institutions and more at home have huge potential financial and humanitarian benefits.
By leveraging the personal health and fitness trend with its innovative M2M solutions it might be possible to kick start efforts in the healthcare area. Already today some 2 million patients with heart problems are monitored remotely using M2M solutions and in Sweden alone are some 500.000 nurse alarms installed in the fixed phone network (PSTN).
