Push telecommunications for tele-medicine (PTT) and M-health Market supports custom messaging from patients on a daily basis. Messaging is a feature of the Bosch Health Buddy System and other leading telemedicine systems. The systems rely on content programs that are tailored to patient conditions and involve questionnaires tailored to the chronic condition in the case of patients with those types of disease conditions.

With chronic disease telemedicine systems, content is pushed out to the patient on a custom basis, addressing changes in patient condition. Content varying is implemented each day to assess different key aspects of care and to keep the experience fresh for patients. The custom messaging feature enables care providers to send customized notifications to specific patients or their entire population with the click of one button. Messages appear on the patient's device display on their next session, and are archived and audited by the system, allowing the care provider to track when patients receive and view their messages.

The analytical capabilities of cognitive computers help people make sense of the accumulated information about lifestyle and will help people make more intelligent choices about lifestyle. Tele-medicine device and software companies recognize that their revenue stream will come from services delivery. Just as smart phones are paid for in conjunction with the services contracts, so also the tele-medicine applications are paid by insurance.

According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the WinterGreen Research team that prepared the telemedicine market research study, "Push technology for telemedicine (PTT) is evolving large new markets. Markets are evolving as smart phone devices find more uses. Differential diagnostic tools and significant improvements in monitoring support differential tele-medical treatment. The decision process takes into account clinical findings from home monitoring devices and from symptoms verbally communicated in a clinical services implementation."

Tele-medicine is evolving toward smart phone device delivery as well. The cost of tele-medicine is substantially less than other NIC programs and nursing home care. VHA's experience is that an enterprise-wide home tele-medicine implementation is an appropriate and cost-effective way of managing chronic care patients in both urban and rural settings.

Chronic disease conditions are best treated early on when there is a change in patient condition and an early intervention can make a difference. It is even better to treat them in a wellness treatment environment before there are indications of chronic disease, before symptoms develop, by addressing lifestyle issues early on.

Tele-medicine, telehealth, and M-health markets at $1.5 billion in 2014 are anticipated to reach $45.4 billion by 2021. M-Health markets related to telemedicine will grow the fastest, leveraging 9.5 billion smart phones and 5 billion connected tablet devices installed all over the world by 2021.
