Wireless Medical Devices - Endless Possibilities
Wireless technologies are bringing about dramatic improvements in the quality of healthcare by allowing patients unprecedented mobility while providing healthcare professionals with easy and real-time access to patient data. Awareness of telehealth and wireless medical applications is increasing with more high profile companies entering the space, along with prominent media coverage and a rise in the number of conferences highlighting the technology. A recent national study by Philips showed compelling and tangible benefits with telehealth. Private and public payers are beginning to buy into the advantages of telehealth. Medicare now reimburses for telehealth under particular circumstances and some private payers in certain geographies are also paying providers to use telehealth.
