Framingham, Mass.-based IDC Health Insights announced the launch of a new research advisory service that examines the evolving Connected Health market. The goal of the Connected Health IT Strategies research service is to provide in-depth coverage of connected health services including videoconferencing, virtual, or online care on demand, remote patient monitoring, mobile health, clinical mobility, aging in place, and telediagnostics and the enabling technologies such as health information exchange (HIE) and electronic health records (EHR) to support this new market.

Designed for providers, payers, technology vendors, and cable/telephone/wireless companies, this service will provide unique market insight to help leading organizations develop strategies to monetize telemedicine services.

According to IDC Health Insights, over the next four years, the healthcare industry will make signficant investments in key enablers to telemedicine, including EMR and HIE technologies. If effectively deployed, connected health services will enable the transformation of healthcare delivery from traditional office-based and hospital settings to the consumer's home or anywhere via the consumer's device. This will be critical to achieving the health reform objectives of reduced healthcare costs and improved patient outcomes.
