Out-Of-Hospital Wireless Healthcare Poised for Rapid Growth, According to Beecham Research

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM and BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS--(Marketwire - July 27, 2009) - The Healthcare industry worldwide is faced with an urgent need to reduce costs while at the same time having to cope with the effects of rapidly aging populations and a growing incidence of chronic diseases. Taken together, these threaten to overwhelm existing healthcare systems according to Beecham Research (www.beechamresearch.com), the leading market analyst and consulting firm specializing in M2M connected services - the "Internet of Things".

"Part of any solution is wireless healthcare monitoring, which is poised for immediate and rapid growth in spite of current economic difficulties" according to Bill Ingle, author of Beecham Research's new Market Brief on Wireless Healthcare and Fitness Monitoring.

The new Market Brief, published today, focuses on the rapidly developing business of out-of-hospital healthcare monitoring, a major opportunity for cellular and other wireless technologies. Using the U.S. healthcare market to illustrate issues affecting nearly every healthcare system worldwide, Beecham Research examines the background and key drivers behind this opportunity. Also included is analysis of relevant technologies, current players, impediments to growth, disruptive developments, the closely related consumer fitness monitoring market and those alliances and partnerships now powering market development.

Wireless healthcare has traditionally lacked the size and depth of other M2M service sectors but this is changing rapidly.
