Commenting on the report, an analyst from the researchers' team said: "Health is one of the primary issues of concern for people living in the North America region and, in a relatively short period of time, games have become an important way in which to maintain health. Also, there is an increasing amount of edugames coming onto the market to serve as important tools for training professionals, such as paramedics. Vendors are also increasingly focusing on creating custom content for health professionals. Recently, HealthTap, which is an interactive medical community, raised a fund of US$11.5 million, bringing its overall funding to US$14 million, in order to gamify the process of doctors answering questions related to health as well as to hire personnel and to involve more physicians and patients in the community.

"Hence, due to the increasing focus on custom application development to gamify the health improvement process, the Mobile Edugames market in North America is expected to further develop during the forecast period."
