    More ultrasound systems were sold in 2014 than CT, MRI and X-ray combined. Over 170,000 ultrasound systems were estimated to have been shipped globally in 2014, accounting for over 60% of the total medical imaging market. Strong growth is forecast in the ultrasound market, with over 1 million ultrasound systems projected to be sold during the period 2014 to 2019. Uptake will be driven by demand in traditional applications such as radiology and OB/GYN in developing regions and the expanding use of ultrasound in new applications including MSK and critical care, and procedural guidance in mature markets.

    As Nariman Behravesh, lead economist with IHS, has noted “nurturing the process of innovation will ensure that the huge improvement in the human condition that has occurred over the past two centuries was not a fluke of history”.

With cautious optimism about short-term growth expectations for digital health, and more resolute optimism for growth in the long-term, the event brought together several key players in the digital health ecosystem that are making use of Qualcomm’s 2net/Healthy Circles connectivity platform. This article is a synopsis of Connect 2015 with additional insight from recent work that IHS has conducted in regard to digital health.
