SPOTLIGHT: Remote health monitoring growing, but restrained by payment policies

Remote health management represents just 1.4 percent of the market for home health monitoring in the U.S., but it's expected to double from $1.8 billion in 2007 to $3.6 billion in 2012, representing 15 percent annual growth, according to a new report. That's below estimates from other studies, largely because many physicians aren't likely to accept remote monitoring until payers reimburse for much more than two-way video consultations to isolated, mostly rural, populations, says Cambridge, Mass.-based consulting firm Scientia Advisors.
