Global Information Inc. would like to present a new market research report, "Analysis of the North American Telehealth Industry" by Frost & Sullivan.
The continuing alignment of healthcare with information and communication technologies makes the telehealth (which also includes remote patient monitoring, mHealth, and video telemedicine) industry one of the most confusing, yet transformative, spaces in the world. Despite many hurdles, telehealth markets continue as an effective treatment for many shortfalls present in the current healthcare experience, whether it is gaining access to the right specialist at the right time, or ensuring a patient can manage their medications. Telehealth is quickly transitioning from the best kept secret in healthcare to becoming persistently demanded by professionals and patients alike.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivans research identifies and defines the largest and most impactful market opportunities within telehealth, providing market sizes, trends and rankings, based on key research criteria. From this extensive analysis, Frost & Sullivan finds the top five telehealth markets in North America, in ranking order, are:
- 1. Home healthcare and disease management monitoring
- 2. Remote doctor and specialist services
- 3. Personal emergency response systems (PERSs)
- 4. Video diagnostic consultation
- 5. Remote cardiac services
When combined, these markets generate more than $1.9 billion in revenue.
Given the broad scope of opportunities present at the convergence of healthcare with information and communication technologies, even understanding the basics of telehealth can be a difficult task.
"The opportunities in telehealth applications are numerous, but so are the challenges, such as establishing high value propositions and sustainable business models," explained Frost & Sullivan Senior Industry Analyst Zachary Bujnoch. "Many companies must struggle from the start due to a lack of the expertise and perspective necessary to take full advantage of the many different aspects involved in each of these markets."
Partnerships and collaborations between companies are key components to success in many telehealth markets. The companies that thrive tend to stick to their core competencies and choose effective partnerships or alliances that fill in the gaps in technology or industry expertise.
"As an industry born out of convergence, telehealth is rich with partnerships and collaborative opportunities," stated Bujnoch. "When mutually beneficial situations are taken advantage of by industry participants, some of the most significant industry challenges are addressed and overcome, such as payment issues or the design of effective solutions for the elderly."
