Telemedicine market could grow by $5 billion in next five years | Trends in Retail Health Clinics  and telemedicine | 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.

There are several indicators that 2015 will be the year that telemedicine really takes off. Read any predictions related to healthcare, and telemedicine is central in those discussions. Here are just some of the indicators:

  • The Global Telemedicine market in 2016 is predicted to be $27 billion, with Virtual Health Services making up $16 billion of that amount (BBC Research and Towers Watson).

  • By 2018, 65 percent of interactions with healthcare organizations will be done via mobile devices, and by 2018 70 percent of them will have apps, offer wearables, do remote health monitoring, and even offer virtual care (IDC).

  • More than one-third of the money Google Ventures invested in 2014 went to healthcare and life-sciences companies.

Telemedicine Adoption Picking Up Pace among Hospital Executives, Survey Says

Telemedicine Adoption Picking Up Pace among Hospital Executives, Survey Says | Trends in Retail Health Clinics  and telemedicine | Scoop.it
Thanks to incentives under the Affordable Care Act, more hospital executives are offering telemedicine technologies in hospitals-but reimbursement is still the primary hurdle, according to the 2014 Telemedicine Survey by Foley and Lardner LLP.posted: Wednesday 10th of December 2014 by Shiva Gopal Reddy

Despite reimbursement and regulatory challenges, executives in the healthcare industry are bullish on adopting telemedicine practices, according to the 2014 Telemedicine Survey Report by Foley and Lardner LLP.

An overwhelming majority of the 57 C-suite executives surveyed for the study believe that telemedicine will increasingly play a key role in transforming an industry that is already ripe for disruption.

Hospital Executives Are Bullish On Telemedicine

More than 90% of the respondents of the survey said that their healthcare organizations are either implementing or have already begun developing a telemedicine program.

84% believe that offering meaningful telemedicine services is very critical to their success as a healthcare organization. Only a miniscule 3% considered telemedicine as unimportant for healthcare.

64% of respondents are already offering remote patient monitoring services54% are offering store and forward technology52% are offering real-time interaction capabilities39% are offering mHealth technologies of one form or the other.

Little more than half of the participants (51 percent) of the survey said that their organization has put in place telemedicine practice standards and guidelines for delivering telemedicine services.

The Affordable Care Act Is Driving Telemedicine Adoption

As the Affordable Care Act shifts the focus of the healthcare delivery model from one that pays for services to one that reimburses for positive patient outcomes, healthcare organizations have been under increasing pressure to share risks, and rewards, for keeping their patients safe.

With organizations clamoring for solutions to deliver healthcare services in a cost-effective manner, telemedicine is being viewed as an attractive means to increase the efficiency of the operations and create multiple touch points for patients.

Since telemedicine plays a role in reducing excessive numbers of hospital readmissions and hospital-acquired conditions, healthcare organizations can hope to avoid the penalties imposed by the ACA model.

50% of the survey respondents cited improving the quality of care as their prime motivating factor in adopting telemedicine practices. 18% ranked reaching new patients as their key motive, which underlines the potential of telemedicine in counseling patients wherever they may be. 11% of respondents each ranked operational efficiency and increasing revenue or profitability as their motivation in implementing telemedicine capabilities.

“In the post-Obamacare paradigm, providers bear a much greater responsibility for the sustained wellness of their patients,” said Nathaniel Lacktman, a partner and health care lawyer at Foley. “Telemedicine offers new ways for providers to manage this new level of risk and keep their patients healthy, happy and out of the hospital.”

But Reimbursement Is a Barrier for Greater Adoption

With telemedicine disrupting the way medicine is practiced, healthcare organizations find it difficult to navigate through regulations and reimbursement policies to get paid for services rendered outside the traditional sphere of doctor-patient interaction.

41% of executives said that they are not being reimbursed for all telemedicine services.21% reported that Medicare covers too few telemedicine services. 20% said that managed care companies pay much lower rates for telemedicine services than for in-person care. 18% expressed their disappointment in state laws failing to mandate that commercial coverage companies pay for telemedicine services.

Other than reimbursement issues, nearly half of the respondents (48%) were concerned about convincing and ensuring their physicians that telemedicine is a credible, high-quality supplement to practice.

36% of healthcare executives report that making physicians feel that their participation in telemedicine is adequately compensated is a significant factor regarding physicians’ acceptance of telemedicine.

Despite these concerns, telemedicine adoption is set to soar, believes Larry Vernaglia, chair of Foley’s Health Care Practice.

“The reimbursement landscape is already changing, and there are many viable options for getting compensated for practicing telemedicine. The smartest thing organizations can do now is to continue developing programs, and be ready for the law to catch up - because it will.”
