Telemonitoring is one way to improve patient compliance, but there are other ways to achieve that as well.Chronic condition care requires daily, real-time monitoring of physiological data, direct patient feedback, coaching, and a high level of patient-clinician interaction to achieve positive results. With the geographical distance widening between doctors and their patients, the problem solution depends on: digital literacy and effective multimodal communication.Home patient monitoring means two things: the imminent rise of the expert patient whom the health authorities anticipate would self-manage his long-term medical conditions and the prominence of mobile devices as the go-between for clinicians and patients.Left to their own judgments, patients typically are apt to make terrible decisions relating to their personal health. The ability to accurately access patient condition via telemonitoring creates the opportunity to intervene when that is called for clinically, and to provide education regarding healthy living in a way that is likely to create compliance with clinician recommendations.Home telemonitoring programs need to use advanced technology. Effective monitors support patient education. They support timely clinician intervention based on real vital signs data gathered on a daily basis. Health care for patients with congestive heart failure has been shown to be successful in reducing hospitalizations and trips to the emergency department, making these critical measures unnecessary in many cases.Wireless telemonitoring devices enable taking vital signs measurements at home and in remote locations. Telemonitoring devices mean a consulting physician can remotely monitor a patient's health status and chronic condition can be gathered in real time.Telemonitoring gives patients far more choices about how and when to react in case of change in medical condition, before a full blown emergency occurs. No matter if the patient is at home, on the bus, at the movies or anywhere in the course of daily life, wireless telemonitoring supports a more mobile lifestyle. Consistent and real time oversight greatly improves ongoing treatment, keeps patients healthier, and avoids expensive hospitalization.Healthcare services providers use telemonitoring technology to improve patient care and reduce nurse visits. This has led the industry to point to inconclusive studies. More work is needed to identify the particular patient profiles of those most likely to benefit from telemonitoring in these double blind studies.Tele-health monitoring equipment markets are growing because units decrease the cost of care delivery while improving the quality of care and the quality of lifestyle available to patients. Healthcare delivery is an increasing concern worldwide. Markets at $607.5 million in 2010 are anticipated to reach $3.1 billion by 2017.For more information, visit http://www.marketresearch.com/product/display.asp?ProductID=6402708About MarketResearch.com MarketResearch.com is the leading provider of global market intelligence products and services.
