Cardiac Event Recording and monitors are evolving as a services industry. Patients do not pay directly for units, they are provided by a clinician and the clinician is reimbursed by CMS in the US as a fee for service. In this manner the vendors participate in the services market. The cardiac event recording services industry is fragmented and characterized by a large number of smaller regional hospital and home care service providers.

Consideration of Cardiac Event Recorder Market Forecasts indicates that markets at $197.8 million in 2012 will reach $862.7 million by 2018. Growth comes as more emphasis is put on early diagnosis and prevention of disease. Heart failure patients participating in home based programs get called back from nurse within 20 minutes of transmitting readings. This is similar to the response time available in a hospital and positions products in the large and growing telemedicine market space.

For a patient that has arrhythmia and a device detects symptoms, there is the ability to take life saving action. Quick response brings the matter to the attention of the clinician often without patient involvement, helping better serve the patient. Advice can be rendered as to how and why weight fluctuation is a issue and how control of disease is based on lifestyle and diet. Rapid weight gain can indicate fluid retention and a worsening of cardiac function.
