Telehealth refers to the remote monitoring and clinical management of patient's vital signs through use of devices in the home environment. Monitoring solutions are customized to suit the individual patient and allows them to better manage their health. Vital signs data are transmitted to a central server where information can be viewed by a clinician or the patient. This allows caregivers to monitor a patient's condition and take appropriate action to manage health.
The goal of telehealth is to prevent hospital readmission, reduce in-office visits, and better manage health of individuals with long term conditions. As a result, it is important to consider the long term benefits to patients and cost savings to fully understand the value of this market.
Telehealth solutions include the peripheral devices needed to monitor vital signs and collect data, systems for transmitting the data to the server, and software to display the data. Some common peripheral devices include blood pressure cuffs, weight scales, blood glucose monitors and pulse oximeters.
The devices included with each solution will vary depending on the patients' condition. Data from these devices may be transmitted using a telephone line, broadband, GSM and Bluetooth. This data is displayed using software systems which may be viewed by the patient, caregiver, clinician or physician, who can use this information to better manage an individual's health.
