The demand for customized healthcare solutions and increased chronic illness amongst the aging population are a few drivers that will fuel the adoption of remote patient monitoring technology, reports iData Research.

The goal of telehealth is to prevent hospital readmission, reduce in-office visits, better manage health of individuals with long term conditions and reduce costs for more remote and isolated health care providers.

December 29, 2014 – Vancouver, BC – According to a report by iData Research (, the leading global authority in medical device market research, the U.S. patient monitoring market is projected to grow to over $5 billion by 2020, due to the most notable expansion within the telehealth market. This market is segmented into cardiac implantable electric device telehealth monitoring and disease conditions management telehealth monitoring. By 2020, telehealth for disease conditions management is projected to represent more than half of the total telehealth market.

The U.S. telehealth market is projected to experience double-digit growth through 2020. Growth is driven by the demand for customized healthcare solutions, increased chronic illness amongst the aging population and strained healthcare budgets. “The goal of telehealth is to prevent hospital readmission, reduce in-office visits, better manage health of individuals with long term conditions and reduce costs for more remote and isolated health care providers,” says Dr. Zamanian, CEO of iData.

Market growth is expected to be further bolstered as awareness and implementation of standards for reimbursement and adoption of this type of care management increase. Additionally, both public and private organizations are expected to continue to budget more funds for telehealth expenditures in coming years.
