The top three emerging trends driving the global connected health market according to Technavio research analysts are:

The development of virtual nurses
Increasing popularity of wearable devices
Growing popularity of telemedicine
Increased demand for energy-efficient construction equipment

“The current healthcare system faces a shortage of resources. The supply of experienced medical professionals has been insufficient to meet the rapidly growing demand for medical services. The shortage of nurses is one of the major reasons for a drop in the quality of medical services. Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, US has developed the concept of a virtual nurse to overcome this,” according to Amber.

Virtual nurses are a group of relational agents that act as a stand-in for front-line staff in hospitals. Their responsibility includes guiding patients on medication and other precautions necessary for their conditions. The virtual nurse created by Northeastern University, named Elizabeth, is being trialed at the Boston Medical Center. Virtual nurses will become an integral part of medical infrastructure in the future. Patients can interact with virtual nurses through on-screen options and contact real-life nurses in case of any doubts.

Increasing popularity of wearable devices

Wearable devices using advanced sensor technologies that track ECG, muscle activity, and breathing are being used extensively. These devices work on M2M technology as the exchange of data takes place between two devices. For instance, wearable devices capture the movements of a patient, and this data can be directly sent to a physician's electronic devices. Also, these devices improve efficiency and reduce costs.
