COLD SPRING, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2014) - Healthcare as we know it is in the midst of a radical transformation with the emergence of telemedicine, or telehealth and its adoption into practices across the U.S. Telemedicine has increasingly become central to providing healthcare services remotely, especially to the 65-and-older population, which is estimated to reach 72 million seniors in 2030 -- more than twice their number in the year 2000.
"We anticipated this wave building," says Daniel Gilbert, president and CEO of CloudVisit Telemedicine. "CloudVisit provides leading, telemedicine, telehealth and mobile health applications (mHealth) solutions. We have a full suite of innovative, fully integrated mHealth Apps for remote patient care, and we're adding new features, devices, and mHealth Apps regularly. Our clients will be ready for the telehealth market surge."
A new report, Pulse of Telehealth 2014, released by Frost & Sullivan confirms that the burgeoning aging population and their attendant numerous chronic illnesses and diseases will be a boon for mobile telemedicine modalities and remote monitoring of patients.
The company's HIPAA-compliant telemedicine platform flattens patient and provider concerns about the privacy and safety issues that the Frost & Sullivan report raised as barriers to the adoption of telehealth services.
