The demand for personalized care, greater cost-savings, flexibility, interactivity, and portability in health delivery systems, records management, and treatment are driving innovation. The sheer number, variety and complexity of products that have been, and are being developed have led the Food and Drug Administration, Federal Communications Commission, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and other regulators to issue new regulations, guidelines, and approvals.

Pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, insurers, software developers, and physicians are partnering with network providers to offer Health IT solutions to provide greater flexibility, connectivity, and interoperability in the delivery of health care, health education, and patient self-care services. The number of health and wellness apps, clinical decision support technology, and other integrated diagnostic devices on the market has increased exponentially in the past year.
