The wireless home health market is expected to grow to $4.4B in 2013. Costs, ease of use and accessibility remain key issues to adoption. A focused solution to enable more efficient patient management greatly reduces the cost of outpatient care including diabetes. In 2006, cost for healthcare in US rose to $2.1 trillion or 16% of GDP. Chronic Disease accounts for more than 75% of the total US Healthcare cost. Wireless medical monitoring systems including remote patient monitoring and management are increasingly recognized as having the potential to address these resource challenges. With changes in US medical care (“Obama Care”), health care provider profitability depends on managing costs (as opposed to a insurance-driven cost pass through model of the past). As a result these “at risk” health care provider organizations take on the risk of increased costs for unnecessary hospital visits by their patients. These health care organizations are seeking ways to reduce unnecessary hospital visits by their patients. Such unnecessary hospital visits result in large costs that are borne by the health care provider, eroding their profitability. To reduce the costs of unnecessary hospital visits, health care providers are deploying remote monitoring and management systems. This is a new effort and adoption has been hampered by several factors including lack of connectivity standards, interoperability issues and availability of wireless monitoring devices.

ConnectedHealth’s opportunity is to address health care providers demand for lower cost eHealth solutions that can scale by leveraging newly created standard communications standards (Continua), leveraging third party measurement devices and use of standard, third party health gateway hardware (Android phones with embedded ConnectedHealth client).
