Track 1: Telemedicine

Telemedicine is the use of telecommunication and information technologies to provide clinical and medical health care at a distance. It helps to eliminate distance barriers and can improve access to clinical services that would often not be consistently available in distant rural communities. It is also used to save lives in critical care and emergency situations. Although there were distant precursors to telemedicine, it is essentially a product of 20th century telecommunication and information technologies. These technologies permit communications between patient and medical staff with both convenience and loyalty, as well as the transmission of medical, imaging and health informatics data from one site to another. It is a process for accurate data collection in digital format and an electronic medical record for data incorporation and remote transmission Telemedicine is a system for automatically flagging and providing feedback for outlier data.

Track 9: Patient informatics

Patient Informatics is a new aspect of Medical Informatics that largely reflects the empowered healthcare consumer. Patients are aware that many non-healthcare businesses are automating and modernizing their business processes to attract a larger market share. Web portals are web-based programs that patients can access for health services. A web portal can be a standalone program or it can be integrated with an electronic health record. Patient portals began as a web based entrance to a healthcare system for the purpose of learning about a hospital, healthcare system or physician’s practice. Patients would like to have the same automation and convenience of an ATM machine applied to healthcare. Patients are using the Internet as the medical library of choice before and after seeing clinicians. Patient web portals are now available that are standalone or integrated with electronic health records that offer a multitude of patient oriented services.

Summary:

The use of information and communication technology to deliver medical services and information from one location to another is telemedicine. Telemedicine can be seen as a way of distributing medical expertise and services to medically underserviced areas such as remote and rural areas using Information technology as a communication platform. For more than 30 years, clinicians, health services researchers, and others have been investigating the use of advanced telecommunications and computer technologies to improve health care. At the intersection of many of these efforts is telemedicine—a combination of mainstream and innovative information technologies. The science of analysis, documentation control and synthesis of information processes within the health care delivery system especially in environment and medical practice is medical informatics. Telemedicine is utilized by health providers in a growing number of medical specialties.Telemedicine consists teledermatology, teleradiology, telecardiology, telepsychiatry and home health care. Telemedicine is reality today and has come to stay. In Telemedicine one transfers the expertise, not the patient. The term telehealth can refer to clinical and non-clinical services such as medical education and clinical research and telemedicine refers only to the provision of medical services.

The future of Telemedicine and Medical informatics is mainly accessible to under-served rural and urban populations and is easy and quick access to specialists. Telemedicine mainly adds thousands of skilled specialists to the healthcare team. Telemedicine is the developing future medicine with improving the medical science and medical care technology.

Importance & Scope:

Telemedicine and medical informatics is now being extensively used in medical and health care sectors;Thus telemedicine and medical informatics are expected to grow at a high rate in coming years, which is expected to boost the growth of the medical are technology.83% of healthcare organizations responded to  American Telemedicine Association. They are likely to invest in telehealth with operational efficiency and convenience in mind.  171 healthcare executives participating in the annual ATA Executive Leadership Survey, 88% are likely to purchase telehealth tools by 2017. In 2013 the m health valued at $ 2.4 billion in global revenues.it is estimated that by 2018 it will reach $21.5 billion. By 2018 the Europe will be the largest m health market worth $7.1 billion with the highest predicted growth per year at 61.6%. Over 300 studies have been completed over the past 5 years.

Why Hong Kong?

The global telemedicine market was valued at USD 17,878.7 million in 2015 and is growing remarkably. Telemedicine services are used in several medical areas, such as pathology, cardiology, radiology, genetics, diabetes control, psychiatry, and primary healthcare. Increasing population, escalating number of chronic diseases, rising cost of healthcare services, growing medical requirement in remote locations, and amplified number of smartphone users are some of the key drivers of the market. The emergence of virtual medical centers and remote clinical enterprises are some of the trends that have been observed. Developing countries like Russia, China, and India are showing high growth rate. High technological costs, lack of trained professionals, and inadequate healthcare infrastructure in developing economies are inhibiting the growth of the global market.

Glance at Market of Telemedicine and Medical informatics:

The market is mainly driven by the increasing research funding for Telemedicine and Medical informatics from governments and private investors, growing demand for digital health care in the U.S. and Europe, and the increasing need for medical technology. However, low adoption rates and data complexity inhibits the growth of the Medical care market to a certain extent. Telemedicine is used extensively in health and clinical field. Thus, the rapid growth experienced by Medical informatics sector is assisting the growth of the Medical field.

In the year 2015, the telemedicine market was estimated to be worth around USD 23,224 million and is expected to reach USD 66,606 million by the year 2021, growing at a CAGR of 18.8% during the forecast period (2017-2022). The Global Telemedicine Market is poised to grow at a CAGR of around 16.3% over the next decade to reach approximately $78.3 billion by 2025.

Statistics which shows growth in importance of Telemedicine and Medical informatics:

Statistics of Industries Associated with Telemedicine and Medical informatics:

Asia pacific was the market leader with a good share of the global market, followed by Europe and united states. The presence of a large number of analytical equipment manufacturers has contributed significantly to the United states and European medical market. However, the Asia-Pacific region represents a significant growth opportunity for the Telemedicine market during the forecast period of 2014 to 2018. The APAC market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 23% during the forecast period. The growth in this market is driven by the growing telemedicine and health care field

 

Fund Allotment towards Telemedicine and Medical Informatics Research:

The National Institutes of Health has provided millions of dollars in new funding to support Comprehensive Telemedicine Centres at Mayo Clinic, the United states, and the University of Florida. Some of the digital health companies are Maxwell health, health line media, pear therapeutics and Cala health.

These centres will receive an estimated $9 million to $10 million each over the next five years to create resources and initiate research programs that will ramp up the national Health science capabilities. Overall, the full global telehealth market is forecast to be worth $43 billion by 2019, compared to the estimated value of $16 billion by the end of 2013. The growth is the fact that a survey of 140 large employers in the United States revealed that 48% of them already offered access to services from the top telehealth companies to their employees and 74% are expected to offer that by the end of 2016.

Teladoc is one of the largest providers of telemedicine service

MDlive it has grown very quickly and has already raised more than $70 million in investment.

Spruce Health has raised $17 million in investment, mainly from its most recent $15 million series A in March 2015 that included top investors like Kleiner Perkins and Google Ventures.
