It’s not IF, it’s WHEN

The number of consumers using home health technologies will grow from 14 Million to more than 78 Million by 2020.  It’s not if, it’s when.  A recent study done at Partners showed monitoring of patients discharged with Heart Failure significantly reduced re-hospitalizations as well as death within 120 days after leaving the hospital.  As the growing baby-boomer segment of the population enters it’s most medically intensive years, expect many changes in where, how, and by whom healthcare is delivered.  Exciting times!

Also a big shout out to @FierceHealthIT where I first saw the article.
