MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Connected health solutions are creating a pathway to transform healthcare, including workflow optimization, provider and patient engagement, and new application opportunities in the continuum of care. Telehealth has the power to impact both treatment and prevention in healthcare, which is critical to decrease the burden of healthcare costs, while improving outcomes. The convergence of healthcare with information and communication technologies is creating many distinct markets with different challenges, needs and opportunities for all stakeholders in telehealth. Frost & Sullivan is therefore pleased to host the Market Watch panel, "Not All Telehealth Markets are Equal," at the American Telemedicine Association's (ATA's) 2013 Meeting and Tradeshow on May 5-7, 2013 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas.
During this forum, Frost & Sullivan's Connected Health (http://connectedhealth.frost.com) practice will present findings on the current state of the industry, including input from industry leaders with insights on major telehealth sectors including: remote patient monitoring, video telemedicine, mobile health (mHealth), and aging in place. The panel will evaluate key differences and similarities between these top market verticals, examining the challenges, business models, as well as the current state of the telehealth market, what is in store for the future, and growth prospects. The "Not All Telehealth Markets are Equal" Market Watch panel will begin at 4:15 p.m. CDT on day two of ATA 2013, on Monday, May 6, 2013 in Ballroom E during the Finance and Operations session track.
