MONTREAL, March 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tactio's app-enabled telehealth solution, TactioRPM, is referenced as one of the top mHealth care delivery platforms by leading M2M/IoT market research firm Berg Insight in the 8th edition of its mHealth and Home Monitoring report.
Care delivery platforms are software solutions that enable the remote delivery of healthcare services and care efforts to be coordinated between patients, various professional caregivers and other stakeholders such as the patient's family. Furthermore, care delivery platforms will be instrumental for engaging patients in their own care and delivering remote monitoring services to a large number of people in a cost-efficient manner.
According to the report, the number of remotely monitored patients grew by 44 percent to 7.1 million in 2016 as the market entered a growth phase fuelled by rising market acceptance in several key verticals. This number includes all patients enrolled in mHealth care programs in which connected medical devices are used as a part of the care regimen.
Using patients' own mobile devices as health hubs is now becoming a viable alternative for remote patient monitoring. BYOD connectivity will be preferred by select patient groups and will be used for the remote monitoring of 22.9 million patients in 2021.
Berg Insight estimates that revenues for remote patient monitoring (RPM) solutions reached €7.5 billion in 2016, including revenues from medical monitoring devices, mHealth connectivity solutions, care delivery platforms and mHealth care programs. Revenues for mHealth connectivity solutions, care delivery platforms and mHealth care programs are growing at a faster rate than connected medical devices.
There is a strong trend towards incorporating more connectivity in medical devices and pharmaceuticals in order to enable new services and value propositions. Care delivery platforms and mHealth connectivity solutions are two of the most rapidly developing parts of the mHealth technology value chain. "These are very exciting times for everyone involved in the industry. Several market forces are now coming together which will make mHealth care programs available for tens of millions of people in the next few years," said Johan Fagerberg, CEO of Berg Insight.
"Tactio's vision started years ago at the birth of this exciting emerging market. Since then we've relentlessly focused on the patients to empower them with connected care, to ease their way with selfcare, and to open them new care pathways, that are digital, mobile and connected. We're proud today to be listed by Berg Insight among the top care delivery platforms and our growth with some of the world's most innovative care providers is certainly there as a witness of this global status," said Michel Nadeau, P.Eng., CEO of Tactio Health Group.
Tactio will demonstrate its TactioRPM platform at ATA 2017 in Orlando from April 23rd to 25th and Hospitalar in Sao Paulo, Brazil, from May 16th to 19th.
