North American telehealth report published on healthcare and ICT convergence

Research and Markets Research and Markets

Dublin, Ireland. September 14, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Research and Markets has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan’s new report on the North American Telehealth industry to its offering. The report is entitled, A CEO’s Guide to Convergence between Healthcare and Information and Communications Technologies.

The continuing convergence of healthcare and information and communication technologies (ICT) makes the telehealth industry one of the most confusing yet transformative spaces in the world. Despite many hurdles, telehealth markets continue to be an effective ‘treatment’, say the authors, for many shortfalls present in the current healthcare experience, whether it is getting to see the right specialist at the right time or making sure patients can manage their medications.

Some of these healthcare activities have been going on for 50 years, while some have emerged from nothing to become major markets in the last five years. According to Frost & Sullivan, telehealth is quickly transitioning from a well-kept secret in healthcare to being consistently demanded by professionals and patients alike.

Key findings of the report include:
* The telehealth industry remains highly complex and is involved in virtually every aspect of healthcare in some way.

* Technology is only an enabler for success in the telehealth industry, as implementation, deployment, and training are key to programme success.

* Telehealth is not new, and legacy systems, such as those in cardiac ECG, personal emergency response systems (PERS), and home healthcare, provide much needed lessons for current participants.

* Many times, telehealth applications are only sustainable in a minority of professional healthcare environments; however, when they do fit, the clinical results are very positive.

* The consumer-focused part of telehealth is already a booming market, contributing billions to the overall industry with markets, such as PERS.

* In the United States, the US Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) continues to be the silent leader in the telehealth industry and remains the largest single user of telehealth services.

The report comprises an executive summary, market overview, telehealth industry description, telehealth industry analysis, and a breakdown of select markets of the top 20 vendors, user survey results, and discussion.
