  • 1. Global Market and Forecast on Tele-Health Carts,Servers, and Monitoring Market Shares, Strategies 2012to 2018 WinterGreen Research announces that it has a new study on Tele-Health Carts, Servers, andMonitoring Market Shares and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2012-2018. The 2012 study has 366pages, 111 tables and figures. Tele-health improves treatment of chronic disease, reduces costof care delivery, lets baby boomers age gracefully in their homes. Tele monitoring is evolvingmore sophisticated ways of monitoring vital signs in the home, thus protecting people in afamiliar, comfortable environment. The improvements in care delivery relate to leveraging largeinformation sources that permit understanding what care works for what conditions.Tele-health systems server markets are anticipated to grow because they represent a way tosteer patients with a particular clinician to those most expert in treating that particularcondition. Tele-health is not yet to the point where it is able to be used effectively toimplement changes that represent significant improvements in overall healthcare delivery, theyare largely confined to being used in the treatment of chronic conditions.The aim of Tele-health systems that will grow markets significantly is if the tele-health isused to prevent the onset of chronic conditions of CHF and diabetes through interventionalmedicine, wellness programs, and simply intelligent nutrition and exercise programsimplementation. Is this the task of the hospitals? Or, are well ness programs meant to beimplemented elsewhere? In any case, tele-health represents the delivery mechanism for theprograms.Statins have a warning label that indicates that patients who take these drugs risk mentaldeterioration and diabetes. Is this what we want for our people? Or are there wellnessprograms that provide alternatives. These are issues confronting hospitals, physicians,clinicians, big pharma, and patients everywhere. We are all patients; the task is to figure outgood tele-health systems that work to implement wellness programs before the onset ofchronic conditions.Under this scenario, the local physician and specialist becomes the expert in ordering thecorrect diagnostic tests, not just any test they can think of, but a proper test that isrecommended by the expert systems and by the expert clinician. In this manner the out ofcontrol testing costs in the US can be controlled. There will need to be some law changes, therewill need to be some adoption of protections for the expert doctors, but when decisions arebacked by standards of care instantiated as tele health servers we begin to have a rational, veryeffective health care delivery system.
  • 2. Use of tele-health systems in the treatment of chronic conditions is important. 90% of the costof care delivery is tied up in the treatment of chronic conditions. A large percentage of the tele-monitoring servers was sold in the U.S., where the VA system did home monitoring of 92,000patients in 2012. Tele-health equipment shipments are anticipated to grow rapidly worldwideas efficiencies of scale are realized for monitoring and treating people with chronic conditionsin a more standardized manner that addresses the particular combinations and clusters ofconditions any one patient presents.Tele-health systems rely on monitors with integrated connectivity. Systems use monitoringhubs with integrated cellular capability and carts that permit remote diagnosis for places wherethere is a shortage of good doctors and where people want second opinions from a trustedexpert. A physician that sees hundreds of patients a week with a certain condition is more aptto render an accurate diagnosis and to provide effective treatment than a physician that onlysees that condition once a year.The only way to connect patients with a particular condition with a clinician expert in treatingthat condition is through telemedicine. Everyone knows that a surgeon who operates within aparticular specialty every day is more expert than one who operates only once a year. The sameis true across the board for all specialties.Systems like the Bosch health management programs with evidence-based guidelines are greatin this context. These evidence based systems can be used to keep physicians and cliniciansfocused on the most significant part of the condition being treated.IBM Watson is similarly great in the context of connecting expert clinicians with patientspresenting a certain combination of symptoms. This type of care delivery represents significantchange, but it is change for the better, it is lower cost care delivery with higher quality of care.Watson or competing computing systems have the potential to be incredibly useful in thiscontext. Because Watson and other cognitive computing systems can recognize clusters ofsymptoms in a particular patient, these types of systems are potentially useful in guidingpatients to the care delivery clinician that is most likely to be able to recognize the besttreatment and to provide the recommendation ot other clinicians as to what will be the highestlevel of effective care for the least cost.The aim of tele-monitoring is to improve patient compliance with standards of care known tosupport improved outcomes for patients with chronic conditions. Tele-monitoring is one way toimprove patient compliance, but there are other ways to achieve that as well.Tele-monitoring increases patient compliance. The aim is to improve the delivery of healthcareto clients by monitoring vital signs to detect changes in patient condition that may indicate theonset of a more serious event, much as nurses in the hospital monitor patient vital signs.
  • 3. According to Susan Eustis, the principal author of the study, "The advantage of telemonitoringis that it increases patient compliance. It brings expert medicine into the home and attempts topresent it in manner patients can hear. The aim is to improve the delivery of healthcare toclients by performing medical exams remotely and monitoring vital signs to detect changes inpatient condition that may indicate the onset of a more serious event, much as nurses in thehospital monitor patient vital signs for the purpose of permitting sophisticated care delivery."Tele-health equipment units decrease the cost of care delivery while improving the quality ofcare and the quality of lifestyle available to patients. They have been widely adopted andextremely successful in use by the veterans administration in the US and by CMS Medicare andMedicaid. Use is anticipated to be extended to a wide variety of care delivery organizationsbased on this base of installed systems. Healthcare delivery is an increasing concern worldwide.Markets for the carts and associated servers segment of the market at $98 million in the firstthree quarters of 2012 are anticipated to reach$1.4 billion by 2018.Report Details:Published: December 2012No. of Pages: 366Price: Single User License: US$3700 Corporate User License: US$7400Buy a copy of this report @ can also request a sample of this report @ Out These Key Topics  Chronic heart failure  CHF  Chronic heart disease  Telehealth  Telemedicine  Telemonitoring  CMS Telemonitoring  Heart disease treatment efficacy  Care Management  CMHCB  Health Buddy System
