M2M Health Applications - M2M Conference, Israel (June 2012)

  1. 1. Ofer Atzmon VP Business Development and Marketing Are M2M Health Applications Going to Replace our Doctors?
  2. 2. 2 Topics of This Presentation  M2M Health Definitions  Market Trends  Case Studies  Will M2M Health Applications Replace Our Doctors?
  3. 3. 3 Introduction and Definitions Source: www.m2mnow.biz
  4. 4. 4 Aerotel Medical Systems  A global provider of fixed and mobile personal remote monitoring solutions  Based in Holon  Privately held, 22 employees  Customer base in 50+ countries  Developing M2M Health applications since 1996
  5. 5. Definitions  M2M (machine-to-machine) - technology that supports wired or wireless communication between machines  Telemedicine or Telehealth - the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) for the delivery of health services and information over a distance  mHealth (mobile health) - telemedicine services, supported by mobile (wireless) devices or technologies  M2M Health - Telemedicine where data is transmitted with minimal human intervention 5 Sources: WHO, ATA

  8. 8. M2M Health Systems  M2M health systems can be useful for early detection of acute conditions and for prevention of deterioration  For example, vital sign monitoring, such as blood glucose or heart ECG for homebound patients  They can monitor not only physiological parameters but also environmental conditions, such as humidity, temperature  M2M Health systems can be part of a smart garment or worn as an accessory  Sensors can be embedded and/or external  Patient is usually connected to a medical monitoring center  Communication links include fixed phone lines, Internet or cellular connection 8
  9. 9. 9 Wireless Technologies are a Key to M2M Health
  10. 10. 10 Benefits of M2M Health  Doctors are scarce and their time is valuable  Telemedicine can allow doctors to see more patients within given time  M2M tracking systems can watch patient’s location and conditions  Monitoring can automatically alert a doctor or healthcare facility when necessary  Portable, wearable and even implantable sensors can monitor vital signs and provide the data to healthcare providers  Real-time information can mean the difference between life and death in many situations  Telemedicine helps reduce the high costs of serious diseases and improve quality of life Source: T-Mobile
  11. 11. 11 Main Market Trends
  12. 12. Consistent Growth for Home Telehealth 12 Source: Berg Insight Source: Parks Associates
  13. 13. 13 M2M Health Revenues to Triple by 2015
  14. 14. 14 M2M Health is Driven by Consumers, not Patients  The majority of M2M connected healthcare devices will be consumer-oriented applications  However, the majority of revenues will come from the non-consumer segment, due to the significantly higher average cost of such devices  More than 50 million wireless health monitoring devices will ship for consumer monitoring applications during the next five years, with a smaller number for managed telehealth systems  Consumers want to be able to monitor and manage their own health at home  Medical devices bought by consumers to self-monitor their health will account for more than 80% of all wireless medical devices in 2016  Increasing availability of home sensors (such as blood pressure monitors) to track and upload information in real time via a wireless or wired connection Source: IMS Research - Wireless Opportunities in Health and Wellness Monitoring (05/2012) Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Communication in Healthcare (05/2012)
  15. 15. 15 Cade Studies
  16. 16. 16 Use Case (1): ECG Monitoring at Home Source: Global Industry Analytics (GBI)  ECG monitoring is growing in demand due to:  the rise of the aging population,  increasing incidence of cardiovascular diseases  growing number of people receiving home care  demonstrated costs/benefits
  17. 17. 17 Personal ECG Monitoring Personal Mobile ECG Monitor Monitoring Center Fixed or Mobile Phone BT
  18. 18. 18 Remote ECG Monitoring – The Benefits  Reduced hospital admissions by 30%  Reduce death rates by 45%  Peace of mind for high-risk patients  High satisfaction rate by users and medical professionals  Significant cost savings:  UK NHS study (2007) found that return on investment is 3.5 months(!)
  19. 19. Use Case (2): Chronic Disease Management  200 million patients in the EU and the US suffer from chronic diseases  This will increase dramatically by 10%-20% over the next 10 years  According to the World Health Organization (WHO) chronic diseases are the leading cause of mortality, representing 60% of all deaths  Prevention programs can provide valuable information, eliminate risks and enable effective decision making and timely intervention  Insurance companies try to lower their expanses and reduce hospital admissions  The result: Significant growth in home monitoring of chronic diseases  The enabler: M2M 19 Source: GBI, Juniper Research, Berg Insight, InMedica
  20. 20. 20 Aerotel’s M2M Homecare Hub Connected World 2011 Value Chain GOLD Award in Home Health  Cost-effective, easy to use homecare hub  Specifically intended for daily monitoring of various clinical parameters  Wired or wireless (Bluetooth) connectivity with various sensors  A wide range of sensors to choose from  Three models offering a flexibility of connection types :  Connect-CELL™ - Cellular (GPRS) connection  Tele-Modem™ - Fixed phone connection  Connect-LAN™ - IP (LAN) connection
  21. 21. 21 Home System for Chronic Disease Management
  22. 22. 22 Case Study: “The Do-It-Yourself House Call” Remote-Monitoring Technology Leads Heart Patients to Take Their Readings at Home From the Wall Street Journal, July 27, 2010 (click to read full article) Ms. Brown's blood-pressure reading and transmission devices. 'I was constantly going to the doctor,' said Carolyn Brown of the Bronx, N.Y. 'Now they can tell right away if I am in trouble.'
  23. 23. 23 Demonstrated Benefits  Detect changes and intervene before the patient has to be hospitalized  Instead of constantly going to the doctor, the monitoring service can detect immediately if the patient has a problem  Faster evaluation of suspected heart failures  30% reduction in hospitalization for heart-failure patients  Cost savings: $6,300 for a Medicaid heart patient's typical hospital stay vs. a $626 wireless monitoring system (10:1 ratio)

  27. 27. Automatic Alerting When Patient Wanders or Falls Three out of four Alzheimer's patients wander*  The device can send electronic alerts about the user’s location  Can create automatic voice calls, send SMS or emails  Automatic alerting of falls or non-activity 27 * Source: The editorial staff of www.everydayhealth.com. © 2010 www.Everydayhealth.com
  28. 28. 28 Are M2M Health Applications Going to Replace Doctors?  The use of M2M technologies can automate many tasks  It overcomes distances and saves valuable time and costs  However, professionals still need to review and analyze the data and take informed decision  Currently M2M health applications are still limited to M2H (H=Doctor)  Doctors also play an important role in promoting and specifying M2M health systems  Therefore, we believe the doctors will continue to play an important role and will remain part of the equation for many years to come
