-- What's your perception of telehealth and allied markets?

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The market for telehealth, including remote monitoring, video telemedicine and mHealth, is central to healthcare delivery transformation as healthcare and information communication technology continue to rapidly evolve and converge. Diverse stakeholders within and outside healthcare are capitalizing on new business opportunities while developed markets are leading adoption, and emerging markets are providing new potential paths to innovation.

Frost & Sullivan's Pulse of Telehealth 2013, conducted in partnership with the American Telemedicine Association (ATA), analyzes data from ATA 2013 Annual Meeting & Trade Show and finds the home is the leading area of impact and opportunity, including use of remote patient monitoring (RPM) for home health and chronic disease management in the view of stakeholders over the next decade. The surveyed markets include home and disease management monitoring, personal emergency response systems, video telemedicine, tele-imaging, activity monitoring, wellness programs, remote cardiac electrocardiography, and tele-mental health.
