Wireless home healthcare $4 billion industry by 2013

A report from international research firm
Parks Associates predicts the U.S. market for wireless home-based
healthcare applications and services will grow at a five-year cumulative annual
growth rate of over 180% and become a $4.4 billion industry in 2013.  The growth
is expected to be fueled by the Obama Administration’s push for healthcare
reform and the boost in adoptions of wireless technologies in healthcare. Parks
Associates found wireless technologies can benefit home care in areas such as
chronic care management, medical diagnostic device monitoring, wellness and
fitness applications, medication management, and senior independent living
