Telemedicine and M-Health Convergence Market Research Report To 2019: Radiant Insights
WinterGreen Research announces that it has published a new study Telemedicine and M-Health Market Convergence Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2013 to 2019. The 2013 study has 879 pages, 299 tables and figures. Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the telemedicine systems merge with the smart phone systems of engagement to provide a way to improve clinical care delivery to patients with chronic disease, decreasing hospitalizations and visits to the emergency room. There is a convergence of telemedicine and m-health as the patients become more responsible for their own care delivery and their own health Clinical telemedicine services converge with m-health systems of engagement to lower cost of care and improve quality of care. Tele-medicine and M-Health Market Convergence driving forces relate to an overall trend toward ordinary people taking more responsibility for their own health. This trend has been more prevalent for women in the past 100 years than for men because women used to die very young and they had to learn how to keep themselves healthy. Women have been able to reverse this trend of dying young and to live longer than men in the past 40 years, illustrating that paying attention to health is important.

Healthcare patient, physician, and facility decision support markets are forecast based n the broad availability of smartphones combined with the IBM Watson technology that Watson offers Interactive Care Insights for Oncology. The cognitive systems use insights gleaned from the deep experience of Memorial Sloan-Kettering clinicians. Watson is positioned to permit clinicians to provide individualized treatment.
More options are based on patient medical information. IBM Watson in combination with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has information that represents the synthesis of a vast array of updated and vetted treatment. It is able to compute individual treatment guidelines. This represents a revolution in cancer treatment care and presages a major revolution in all healthcare treatment and diagnosis.
Because Watson is able to leverage published research it can stay more current than any clinician or group of clinicians can. Watson-is a cognitive computing system. The aim of Watson is to streamline the healthcare delivery process. Watson supports the healthcare decision making process. The system has the ability to ensure evidence-based care is provided.
Both tele-medicine and m-health contribute to healthcare delivery in the home. M-health will surely be delivered over the smart phone. Tele-medicine is evolving toward smart phone device delivery as well.
The cost of tele-medicine for the US veterans administration is $1,600 per patient per annum. This is substantially less than other NIC programs and nursing home care which can easily run to $100,000 per annum. VHA's experience is that an enterprise-wide home tele-medicine implementation is an appropriate and cost-effective way of managing chronic care patients in both urban and rural settings.

Left to their own judgments, some patients typically are apt to make terrible decisions relating to their personal health either because of ignorance, genetic inheritance, or because of lifestyle habit. The ability to accurately access patient condition via a combination of advanced testing and telemonitoring creates the opportunity to intervene when what is called for clinically can make a difference, and permits provision for education regarding healthy living in a way that is likely to create compliance with clinician recommendations.
Home telemonitoring programs need to use advanced technology. Effective monitors support patient education. They support timely clinician intervention based on real vital signs data gathered on a daily basis. Health care for patients with congestive heart failure has been shown to be successful in reducing hospitalizations and trips to the emergency department, making these critical measures unnecessary in many cases.
Telemedicine device and software companies recognize that their revenue stream will come from services delivery. Just as cell phones are paid for in conjunctions with the services contracts, so also the telemedicine applications will be paid by insurance. In some cases the insurance companies recognize that their long term costs are lower by delivering clinical intervention to try to impact lifestyle for patients with chronic disease conditions.
Telemedicine systems come from IBM, Intel, Honeywell, Vitarian, and Bosch Diagnostic Support Expert Systems. Tablets are poised to change telemedicine as are telepresence systems from Logitech among others. Clinical diagnosis is being impacted by the decision support systems. Clinical decision support systems (CDSS) have been a key aspect of telemedicine. Bosch offers the ability to track and update on a daily basis, questions that are able to address actual situations that patients face.
Two major categories are diagnostic support tools and treatment support tools. Chronic conditions requires continuous diagnostic support because a continuous flow of information on patient change in conditions helps physicians make a better diagnosis based on the patient symptoms, medications, and medical records.
According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the WinterGreen Research team that prepared the telemedicine market research study, “Differential diagnostic tools support differential telemedical treatment. The decision process take into account clinical findings form the home monitoring devices and from symptoms verbally communicated in a clinical services implementation."
She continued, “Care delivery is enhanced by having clinicians be responsive to changes in patient condition that we know will lead to further patient deterioration if not treated immediately. A core part of responsible healthcare delivery is to use technology for healthcare reform. There is a focus on how to deliver care differently using telemedicine. No matter who pays for it, the use of telemedicine is anticipated to reduce the overall costs of healthcare delivery. Innovation is key to achieving improvements."
Government and local authorities have long recognized the potential of telehealth technology as a tool for delivering health and social care services. This is an increasing imperative given the increasing age demographic and the backdrop of static or reducing funding. Telehealth initiatives must demonstrate credibility and viability beyond the pilot and trial programs in order to achieve the goal of increased capability through technology.
Telemedicine dedicated device and software markets at $843 million in 2012 are anticipated to reach $2.9 billion by 2019. M-Health markets related to telemedicine at $1.4 billion are anticipated to reach $1.5 trillion by 2019 due to the use of 7 billion smart phones and half that many connected tablet devices all over the world.
