DALLAS, Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- New technology-enabled monitoring solutions and services will reshape the diabetic care market and earn $1.4 billion in product and service revenues by 2013, according to Parks Associates' Enhancing Diabetic Care through Intelligent Medical Devices.
This executive update finds companies like Medtronic, Cardiocom, Diabetech, and Healthways are developing new products and service models in response to this paradigm shift in diabetic care. They are laying the foundation for the digital-health service sector and driving adoption of new applications that include continuous glucose monitoring, online access to professional help, and educational sessions on wellness and fitness. These new offerings come in response to growing demand from consumers and industry players for lifestyle changes, better care coordination, and early intervention among diabetic patients.
"The addressable market for continuous glucose monitoring devices and other noninvasive monitoring solutions will continue to expand as the technologies mature and become more economical," said Harry Wang, director, health and mobile product research, Parks Associates. "At the same time, the emphasis on lifestyle changes and close monitoring and coaching has introduced new care models and industry players, speeding the adoption of new technologies that will allow patients to better manage their conditions while being active and proactive."
