Patients don't want to pay for remote health monitoring

The attitude of American consumers toward remote health monitoring devices is the same as it is for all kinds of other healthcare products and services: I want it, but I don't want to pay for it. According to a new survey from PricewaterhouseCoopers, 40 percent of U.S. consumers would be interested in purchasing or leasing a device to monitor various bits of health information like blood pressure or heart rate then automatically send data to their doctors. A similar number--41 percent--said the same about mobile phone applications that would allow them to track health information or remind them to take some action such as taking a medication or refilling a prescription.
