Best Practices: Remote Patient Monitoring Projects in Central and Eastern Europe

LONDON, Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

Best Practices: Remote Patient Monitoring Projects in Central and Eastern Europe

This study examines remote patient monitoring projects in CEE that address different chronic diseases and conditions, including two EU transnational collaborative projects targeted at diabetes, dementia, mobility impairments, and chronic respiratory failure, and a medical alert system being implemented in the Russian Federation to address the emergency needs of the elderly. We analyze the business needs and highlight the management challenges associated with the implementation of telemonitoring initiatives, as well as provide essential guidance for IT vendors who are considering remote patient monitoring markets in CEE.

"Remote patient monitoring solutions have great potential to address many existing and emerging healthcare needs in Central and Eastern European countries, and the prospects of RPM approaches in CEE healthcare systems are extremely promising. Ensuring simplicity of use and considering the needs of the patients' informal caregivers is key to success for IT vendors in the telemonitoring services market." - Senior Research Analyst Nino Giguashvili, IDC Health Insights, CEMA
