Wireless Revolution Attracts New Health Care Partners

Executive Summary

While device manufacturers look for ways to utilize wireless technology to enhance the use of their products, a number of nontraditional health care partners are emerging as important players in the market. Firms such as Qualcomm, AT&T, and other telecommunication companies are working to establish an infrastructure that will make it easier and safer for patient data to flow from remote devices to caregivers. These technology firms have already established deals and partnerships with some manufacturers, and although there is still a lot of work that needs to be done, their presence in this market is an important step that could hasten the ongoing wireless health care revolution.

Digital Health Pushing Telemedicine To Center Stage

Remote monitoring is proving to be the driving force in the industry’s quest to reduce costs by keeping patients out of hospitals, and telemedicine is positioned to become a major part of that scheme. However, telemedicine has a number of components and players, and while the market offers opportunities, it could also prove to be somewhat disruptive to companies and products that do not fit in the envisioned landscape.

Wearable Fitness Technology Could Foretell The Future Of Remote Patient Monitoring

Wearable wireless monitoring devices geared toward the fitness market are beginning to attract the attention of the health care industry, which recognizes the technology’s potential to provide an ideal patient monitoring tool. As more of this technology makes its way into the clinical setting, this trend is poised to change the traditional view of what is and is not a medical device.

Device Connectivity Is Key To Health Care IT Revolution

The ability to create and maintain a data stream of information that flows from medical devices into electronic health records (EHRs) is starting to become an important priority for some of the nation’s hospitals. The development is a natural outgrowth of the movement toward having a viable EHR for every patient, as well as the understanding that quality of care can be enhanced if those EHRs are fed the type of data that comes from devices such as ventilators, infusion pumps, anesthesia machines, and products that measure patient vital signs. That need is creating a new, niche market for companies that offer connectivity solutions, and at some point, these changes are predicted to alter the way hospitals choose which medical devices to purchase.
