With millennials to Medicare beneficiaries strapping on fitness trackers, visiting specialists via video, and monitoring chronic conditions at home, telehealth and telemedicine services are redefining the boundaries of healthcare delivery. A 2015 Telehealth & Telemedicine survey by the Healthcare Intelligence Network captured trends powering this burgeoning market, whose global value is expected to surpass $34 billion by 2020.

A new infographic by HIN examines the top clinical telehealth applications, the greatest barrier to telehealth implementation and details on telehealth adoption and ROI.

The world of digitally enabled care is exploding: the number of patients using telehealth services will rise to 7 million in 2018, according to IHS Technology; healthcare apps and ‘wearables’ are trending in technology circles and healthcare providers’ offices; and CMS’s new ‘Next Generation ACO’ model is expected to favor expanded telehealth coverage.

2015 Healthcare Benchmarks: Telehealth & Telemedicine delivers actionable new telehealth metrics on technologies, program components, successes and ROI from 115 healthcare organizations. This 60-page report, now in its fourth year, documents benchmarks on current and planned telehealth and telemedicine initiatives, with historical perspective from 2009 to present.
