- Defining how IT improves treatment, operational efficiencies and cost control
Healthcare technology must conform to fast-paced market dynamics, driving the transition from traditional settings into adapted, cost-efficient and streamlined solutions. IT is paving the road for this continual evolution. To assist in the interpretation of these transforming and converging industry movements, Frost & Sullivan releases the Connected Health-A Cornerstone to Healthcare Transformation, 2010-2012 compendium. This resource includes Frost & Sullivan's Connected Health proposed key research for 2012, as well as the profiling of recent content over the last two years.

Frost & Sullivan's newly introduced Connected Health program encompasses a wide range of software, hardware, services and content that pertains to the provision and payment of patient care, as well as informatics. At the core of this platform is telehealth, which is the utilization of advanced communication technologies to provide medical care and health services at a distance. These tools are changing how healthcare is delivered and, as a result, are impacting quality, costs as well as the experience for companies, providers and patients.
"Connected Health is one of the most complex and convoluted places ever to exist in healthcare," said Senior Research Analyst Zachary Bujnoch. "The industry's biggest challenge is its own participants' confusion. In order to properly assess Connected Health, it must be explored in a complete and holistic fashion. A deep understanding of a wide range of verticals is necessary because when you analyze the incredibly diverse markets as a whole, then you are able to see how this industry is forever changing healthcare."
As patients push for personalized remedies that allow for individualized service across providers, the need for connectivity between practitioners is heightened. Solutions continue to flourish, between remote monitoring, telehealth, mobile health (mHealth), and electronic health records (EHRs). This need becomes increasingly important as baby boomers age, growing the elderly population. Additionally, the flattening of the market allows for more relocation opportunities based on professional or educational pursuits, leaving an increased need for independent care.
The Connected Health-A Cornerstone to Healthcare Transformation, 2010-2012 compendium provides an overview of this novel Frost & Sullivan research program, from tentative 2012 research titles to research listings dating back to 2010. The proposed 2012 titles will be updated throughout the year to reflect the timeliest, most up-to-date information and offerings. For the available 2011 and 2012 research, the user also has the interactive capability to click on a title in the table of contents and jump to the research abstract and table of contents.
