According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research “Telemedicine Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020,” the global telemedicine market was valued at USD 14.3 billion in 2013 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.3% in the forecast period from 2014 to 2020, to reach an estimated value of USD 36.3 billion in 2020.


Traditional medical practices have been followed since the time of Hippocrates, which generally involved patients traveling to the physician locale and waiting for a long period of time to get treatment. However, hospitals today have reduced waiting time considerably with the help of modern technologies such as telephonic appointments. The central factor of travelling to a healthcare facility and waiting for an appointment still persists in most medical institutions across the world hence, in order to suffice the unmet medical needs of people healthcare facilities have amalgamated medical science and instant communication technology to create a novel mode of diagnosis and treatment; which is now known as telemedicine.

According to the Health Care Cost Institute’s (HCCI) report for U.S in 2011, the per capita spending on healthcare increased by 4.6% from 2010, however the outpatient growth had reduced from 8% (2009-2010) to 6.8% in 2011. This clearly signified the change in trend among patients, with increased preference for home based telemedicine services. The safety and convenience of home based telemedicine was seen as the primary favoring factor for using telemedicine. The decreased risk of acquiring hospital infections is seen as the other factor responsible for choosing telemedicine over traditional medicine.


The global telemedicine market has been primarily segmented in terms of specialty and services offered. Based on medical specialty the market has been further segmented into cardiology, neurology, dermatology, orthopedics, emergency care, internal medicine, gynecology and other specialty areas such as gastroenterology, pediatric care, ophthalmology and dentistry. Dermatology emerged as the segment leader in terms of market revenue among the medical specialty segments, accounting for approximately USD 2.0 billion in 2013. This corresponds with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) study that suggested dermatology cases to be among the most reported cases in an Emergency Room (ER). The highest growth rate however was attributed to the neurology segment that displayed a CAGR of 15.9% during the forecast period, which was mainly attributed to the large number of strokes, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s cases. Psychiatry is also one aspect included in neurology and globally; psychiatry problems are often included within neurological or neurodegenerative segment, hence providing for a large patient pool in neurology. Psychiatry consultations are also the most frequently recorded form of neurological consultations worldwide.


By service type, tele-consultation showed the highest market revenue in 2013. Medical consultation services are the most common form of telemedicine used by physicians worldwide for differential diagnosis consultation. Video conferencing and telecommunication services like mobile phone, etc. are the favored forms of telemedicine consultation. Tele-monitoring exhibited the highest growth rate at a CAGR of over 15%. This growth is in correspondence with the large number of diabetic and disability patients in the world, which are rising with every passing year. Metabolic disorders like diabetes and other congenital diseases are the primary reason to activate constant monitoring among patients. Insulin injections and blood metabolite monitoring procedures are performed by devices which are then used to extrapolate the patient’s health.


In terms of geography, North America accounted for the largest share of the telemedicine market in the year 2013. This is attributed to factors such as country wide implementation of telemedicine and the presence of a majority of telemedicine service providers who have established their base of operation in the U.S. The fastest market growth rate was however exhibited by the Asia Pacific region, which is expected to grow with a CAGR of more than 16%. The ever growing population in developing and developed countries provides a large market for telemedicine, primarily because of the increased reach of telemedicine services and access to modern communication infrastructure in rural and developing regions. A majority of the developing world’s population lives in rural areas and is therefore inaccessible to proper healthcare. Besides convenience of location and cost efficiency, increased government initiatives are also supplementing the high growth. Additionally, the existence of a large number of technology manufacturing units in this region offering cheaper equipment ensures competitive service pricing and steady market penetration. These factors in combination are expected to assist in the growth of the Asia Pacific market during the forecast period.


The presence of a significant number of large and small players makes for a highly diverse and fragmented telemedicine market. However, a noted few players present themselves as the largest telemedicine companies globally, these include: CISCO Systems Inc., AMD Global Telemedicine Inc., Polycom Corp. and McKesson Corporation, to name a few. Among these, companies such as CISCO systems and AMD Global Telemedicine Inc. are the leading global companies in telemedicine. For instance, CISCO offers a wide range of TelePresence products and services in order to serve remote patient care and minimize the distance between patient and the healthcare experts through network managed services. The company has prominent presence in countries such as United States, Belgium, China, France, India, U.K., Japan and Italy. CISCO’s “health presence” software is a healthcare exclusive program, designed specifically to cater the needs of medical professionals and healthcare institutions worldwide. Likewise, AMD offers integrated high-definition video, advanced audio, third-party medical devices, and collaboration tools that provide convenience, efficiency and high quality patient care with high degree of data security as well as privacy.

Web therapy: 4 startups overcoming mental health taboos with technology

Web therapy: 4 startups overcoming mental health taboos with technology | Trends in Retail Health Clinics  and telemedicine | Scoop.it

For a new generation of patients, could the laptop — or even cellphone — replace the stereotypical shrink’s couch? A crop of new startups wants to take psychotherapy into the 21st century.

About one in five Americans will experience a mental health challenge during their lifetime, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Association. But experts say that 60 percent of them will never seek help. The lack of available care, inconvenience and cost are all barriers to access, but so is the fear of prejudice and discrimination from friends, family and even employers.

“Stigma and shame is a huge factor – maybe the most important one,” said Oren Frank, founder of mental health startup Talktala. “People who have been to regular therapy are less ashamed of it, but people who are newcomers are paralyzed by fear.”

Online options enable people to receive therapy on their own turf and terms, without needing to update others on their whereabouts – and they offer the benefit of anonymity.

For example, a study released last month from Case Western Reserve found that while many new moms suffering from postpartum depression wouldn’t seek help because of the stigma or lack of time, they would go online for support if providers were available and they could communicate anonymously.

It’s still a new and relatively small field — therapists may worry about liability issues or misdiagnoses, patients may harbor concerns about privacy and security online and getting insurance to cover it is a challenge — but it’s gaining support among patients and providers.

Here are four startups leading the way:
TalkSession

Launched last month, TalkSession’s goal isn’t just to provide online therapy; it has big plans to bust the stigmas surrounding it. “There are actually two stigmas — first the stigma against mental illness and then the stigma within the community against technology,” said founder and CEO Melissa Thompson.

Through regular livestreamed online conversations with top experts in the field, policymakers and other medical and mental health leaders, the startup plans to start by tackling sensitive issues in mental health. And it intends to launch a digital magazine to give leading mental health providers a place to share best practices and build an online presence.

Once it has established a strong network of providers, Thompson said, TalkSession plans to launch an OpenTable-like service to help patients find and book online therapy appointments. Already, the site has recruited 100 therapists and patients can complete a quiz that will help match them with their ideal therapist, but receiving the online therapy is still a little ways off.
Talktala

People readily tell friends (and even strangers) about relationship troubles or problems at work, but once you start dropping clinical terms, they’re often likely to clam up, said Talktala founder Oren Frank. That’s why his site is trying to build online therapy options that meet people where they are, in the language in which they want to speak.

Talktala
Instead of offering services tagged with terms from the DSM (the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), Talktala invites users to join online chats and forums with friendlier titles like “Relationships are complicated – some advice” and “How to communicate better with your partner?”

In the forums, patients can speak freely and anonymously with others experiencing similar challenges, but a therapist hosts the discussion. During the chat, he can guide conversation in productive directions and if he observes anything significant, he can follow-up with patients individually.

Patients can view any number of online forums and ask a limited number of questions for free, but if they want additional support — from asking unlimited online questions to participating in private and group chats or privately texting with therapists — they can pay up to $30 a month in subscription fees.

Frank said the site isn’t trying to be a solution for people with serious mental health issues and it doesn’t provide services that are reimbursable by insurance. But the service appears to be attracting positive attention — he said it currently has 250 vetted therapists on the site and recently partnered with the Huffington Post’s GPS for the Soul initiative.
iCouch

iCouch
iCouch launched as a service for U.S. patients and therapists but in the three years since its launch, co-founder and CEO Brian Dear said it’s actually attracted a strong international following. Not only has it recruited 165 therapists worldwide (from countries including the U.K., China and Australia), 30 to 40 percent of its clients are based outside the U.S.

Through the site, people can search for therapists according to specialty and gender, scan each therapist’s bio and price and then book online appointments. Via computer or iPhone, they can they videoconference with vetted therapists through the site’s HIPAA-compliant system.

The site helps people who want to receive therapy sessions in the privacy of their own homes but, Dear said, it can also be an advantage for people who live in areas where the culture may not be receptive to their particular issue. For example, the service has several clients from the Middle East who speak with their therapists about gender identity issues or homosexuality — topics that may be taboo in their cultures, he said.

“It breaks down the geographic barriers — it allows people to go into another culture that may be more accommodating to their concerns,” he said. It also enables expats to receive care that might be more difficult to receive in their new home countries, Dear added.

(While most therapists are only licensed to practice in a given state, Dear said that it’s not illegal for therapists to conduct inter-state or international sessions.)
Breakthrough

One of the earliest startups to bring mental health services online, Breakthrough is only available to residents of California for now, but it plans to expand to Texas and other states soon. Through its site, patients can connect with a network of certified mental health professionals and conduct appointments via chat, email, phone or a custom HIPAA-compliant video system.

But while other services may not prioritize working with the insurance system, Breakthrough — which is backed by angel investors such as former Square COO Keith Rabois, PayPal director and former eHealth exec Avery Kadison, Charles River Ventures and others — aims to make online mental health services more mainstream by working with health insurers. Magellan, one of California’s largest health insurers, for example, last year agreed to extend coverage to Breakthrough.

In addition to showing real-time available appointment slots for therapists (ZocDoc-style), the company shows which doctors are online now and plans to enable on-demand, off-hour services.

A handheld medical device that reads vital signs in seconds: the Tricorder is no longer science fiction.

Richard Platt's curator insight, February 17, 4:56 PM

Through its sensor, and in a matter of seconds, the Scanadu measures heart rate, temperature, blood pressure, oxygen level and provides a complete ECG reading.  The device is the brainchild of Walter De Brouwer, a Belgian entrepreneur who had to learn how hospitals work -- and don't work -- the hard way after his son suffered brain damage as the consequence of a fall.  "Star Trek was more than just a movie, it was a business plan," he told CNN's Nick Glass.

In Star Trek, the Tricorder was handled by a doctor, but De Brouwer thinks the most revolutionary aspect of the Scanadu is that it can be used by anyone: "We've medicalised your smartphone. You can now check your health as easily as your email. People will no longer ask if there's a doctor on the plane, but if there's a Tricorder."
