Telemedicine market could grow by $5 billion in next five years | 8- TELEMEDECINE & TELEHEALTH by PHARMAGEEK | Scoop.it

By the year 2020, the patient monitoring market in the U.S. is expected to grow by about $5 billion--mostly because of the expansion of telemedicine use, according to a reportby iData Research.

The report also looks at the impact vital sign monitors, fetal and neonatal monitors, cardiac output monitoring devices and blood pressure monitors will have on the market, among others. In addition, the telehealth market in the U.S. is projected to grow in double digits in the next five years, according to an announcement on the report, with telehealth for disease conditions management set to make up more than half of that market. 

Public and private organizations will also help telemedicine grow as they budget more funds for the technology in the ensuing years, according to the announcement.  

Another industry report also says major growth in telemedicine is on its way, predicting the market will double in the next four years, FierceHealthIT previously reported. The market will see growth at 18.88 percent CAGR, from 2014 to 2019, according to ReportsnReports.com.

Other factors moving telemedicine forward are changes in reimbursement and healthcare policies, which will increase physician confidence in spending money on the technology. according to the iData report.

5 recommendations for telehealth success

5 recommendations for telehealth success | 8- TELEMEDECINE & TELEHEALTH by PHARMAGEEK | Scoop.it

Recognizing that licensing and regulation has not kept pace with the growth of telemedicine applications, a new report offers five recommendations for the successful adoption of telehealth.

The recommendations, made by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, a District of Columbia-based think tank, include:

Adoption of a standard definition for telehealth: While a recently published study found there to be seven different federal definitions of telehealth, the report's authors stress that H.R. 3750, the Telehealth Modernization Act of 2013, can remedy that "by defining telehealth to include healthcare delivered by real-time video, secure chat, secure email or telephone. ...Establishment of a single, national license for telehealth providers  ...Creation of technology- and location-neutral insurance policies ...Collaboration by state prescription drug monitoring programs ...Funding of research to boost quality and lower costs of telehealth programs

 

A framework for evaluating telehealth programs must consider socioeconomic aspects--not just the technological--argue researchers in an article published online recently in Telemedicine and e-Health. Costs, benefits, barriers and outcomes, including clinical outcomes, are among the integral socioeconomic factors at play in telehealth implementations, they say.

Meanwhile, the American Telemedicine Association has suggested some changes to the Federation of State Medical Board's (FSMB) proposed regulation of telemedicine. Among the suggestions: Don't make remote consults more cumbersome than in-person treatment and clear the way for docs to practice across state lines.
