LONDON, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Across Europe, governments have realized the need to introduce remote monitoring into the mainstream of healthcare services. Currently, the market experiences heavy investment regarding the development of various patient monitoring systems using information and communication technology and enabling the remote monitoring of a patient. The European Healthcare sector seems finally ready to embrace the synchronization of information and communication technology with regular patient monitoring, which is proven by an innumerable variety of pilot projects and research programs.



The United Kingdom is at the forefront of technology innovation, leading the way for other countries in terms of awareness, investments and adoption rate. Even though the latter is still low in other European countries, the rate of adoption is continuously growing across the continent. With increased funding from governments and the number of the aged population on the rise, remote patient monitoring is expected to witness a huge demand in the mainstream market as well.
