Report: WiFi-enabled healthcare products to grow 70% in 5 years

A new report from ABI Research forecasts the global market for WiFi-enabled healthcare products to grow by 70 percent over the next five years, to an estimated $4.9 billion in 2014. "The strong uptake of WiFi in the health industry is underpinned by its need for improved asset management, staff mobility, transfer of digitized records, and standardized administration of medications," says Stan Schatt, an analyst with ABI Research. "In addition, government security requirements including HIPAA often mean replacing older wireless equipment with modern versions."
