Executive Brief — Home Health Monitoring for Heart Failure Patients

Heart failure represents a costly and debilitating burden on families and health system alike. This report analyzes an emerging solution that remotely monitors heart failure patients at home using the latest telecommunication infrastructure and medical device technologies. Besides highlighting the solutions, the report evaluates this market in comparison to existing approaches like heart failure disease management practices and the traditional clinical intervention model. Furthermore, the report examines the target market segments and compares different business models employed by technology vendors. Finally, the report provides a five-year revenue forecast for heart failure home monitoring technologies and profiles major solution providers.

“The healthcare industry is slowly moving away from intervention-based care to preventive care, and home monitoring is arriving at the right junction,” said Harry Wang, Senior Analyst with Parks Associates. “To make home monitoring a sustainable business venture, however, solution vendors must clear away a few significant hurdles first, including addressing the high cost issue of the solution and expanding into new markets where successful business models are still elusive.”
