Patients' Remote(ly) Monitored: Ask Frost & Sullivan, What Is Driving the European Market

LONDON, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The Healthcare Group at Frost & Sullivan is pleased to announce its 2009 Quarterly Analyst Briefing Presentation on the European Remote Patient Monitoring Market to be held on Tuesday, 31st March 2009, at 2 p.m. GMT.


The world is facing an ongoing healthcare crisis along with the global economic slowdown. The timing could not be any worse: mounting costs, a steady increase regarding the ageing population, dysfunctional reimbursement policies, limited access, an ever impending physician shortage and concerns over quality of care are just some of the concerns.

In times like these, the focus should move to promising new technologies, which hold a lot of potential. Remote patient monitoring technologies are increasingly being recognized as valuable tools for enhancing quality care in chronic disease management. They have the potential to deliver new and unimaginable savings for both patients and providers. Unfortunately though, consumers remain woefully ignorant of the performance ability of these technologies, even though they could help them not only improve their health, but also manage it.

Highlights of the Frost & Sullivan briefing include the discussion of: current trends, challenges, drivers and restraints, significant market developments, revenue forecasts and a look on to the road ahead. The briefing will benefit service providers, equipment vendors, distributors and physicians by discussing various factors influencing the market and highlighting the emerging trends.

"The heightened demands of an ageing population and a related increase in chronic diseases are helping the remote patient monitoring market growth. It has the potential to change the way patients manage their own condition, so that they become the managers of their own health," notes Senior Research Analyst Janani Narasimhan. "Innovative and advanced technology continues to play a significant role in the RPM market. New technologies are constantly changing to support better healthcare services, while steadily improving patient monitoring capabilities."

Frost & Sullivan will hold this conference call at 2 p.m. GMT on Tuesday, 31st March 2009, which will provide industry participants an outlook of the European Remote Patient Monitoring Market.
