Remote & Wireless Patient Monitoring Markets

New York - Patient monitoring systems are emerging in response to the increased healthcare needs of an aging population, new wireless technologies, better video and monitoring technologies, decreasing healthcare resources, an emphasis on reducing hospital days, and proven cost-effectiveness.

Of these new high-tech patient monitoring systems, nearly all focus on some form of wireless or remote patient monitoring. Advances in remote patient monitoring include new peripherals, real-time audio and video for “face-to-face” interaction between clinicians and patients, wireless communication, systems that “sort” the vast amount of data collected in order to put it into the context of a patient’s condition, portable and ambulatory monitors, web-based access to patient records, systems that transfer data to an electronic medical record (EMR), and full-service outsourcing that includes a clinician to evaluate data and send a report to the attending physician.

The Kalorama Information’s report, Remote & Wireless Patient Monitoring Markets, covers three product areas: wireless and remote patient monitors, patient data processing applications and equipment, and EMR data transfer equipment and applications, which coordinate the flow of data to hospital EMR systems. Wireless and remote technologies include all patient monitoring that transmits data either within an institution via wireless or intranet, or that forward the data to another party or application. The report does not include EMR applications. In general, the applications in this segment transfer data to third-party EMRs.
