Globally, there is an increasing aging population plagued with chronic disease. These factors, combined with a focus on prevention and advancements in technologies, pharmaceuticals and treatments, will undoubtedly cause demand for healthcare services to continue to increase into the future.
There has been a global focus on the use of telemedicine as a tool to cut down healthcare costs and bring about mammoth savings. Implementation of the new U.S. healthcare law will, if anything, intensify this focus by increasing the number of people who have health insurance and are seeking medical services. In the near to mid-term, telemedicine technologies offer one of the few ways of enabling healthcare personnel to meet the increased demand without unacceptable delays or other forms of de facto rationing.
There is interest in studying the ways in which collaborative healthcare can be better and more economically implemented through telemedicine. Recently announced best practices to cut down global healthcare costs, including outsourced medical services, home-based treatment, intervention as opposed to post treatment, integrated information technology (IT) environments, increased efficiency of healthcare resources and reducing billing gaps, all point toward the increasing use of telemedicine.
Given these factors, it seems timely that BCC identify the top 10 companies in the telemedicine field and the key factors to success in the telemedicine market that these companies are exploiting.
The report will also help gauge the ways in which this market can significantly affect larger markets such as healthcare, health insurance, home care, telecommunications (telecom), networking, disease management, e-health and healthcare IT. This is also timely, as major tier-one stakeholders are starting to enter the telemedicine market.
