Automated Dispensing Cabinets – strong growth aheadApril 25, 2017According to IHS Markit, the global Automated Dispensing Cabinet market is projected to enjoy sustained growth over the next five years, despite some regional markets, namely that of the United States, nearing maturity. That said, in the United States the Institute for Safety Medication Practices estimated that over 20% of the healthcare practitioners reported adverse patient effects due to lack of proper monitoring of supply levels as well as inventory management. According to the December 2016 National Pharmacy report, delivery issues, errors with controlled drugs, and mismatching patients with medicines were among the most commonly cited errors. Furthermore, the World Health Organization estimated that medication errors cause at least one death every day and injure approximately 1.3 million people annually in the United States alone. Globally, the picture looks very similar with low and middle income countries estimated to have similar rates of medication-related errors as high income countries. With that in mind, the need for technological advances and investment into equipment in this market is set to continue over the next five years.
Large investment in medical dispensing technology expected over the next five yearsApril 25, 2017Healthcare spending (as a % of GDP) is globally increasing at an accelerated rate. Latin America is forecast to see an 11.5% gain in 2017 following a 6.5% decline in 2016. The growth in healthcare spending in Asia Pacific and in the Middle East and Africa will accelerate in the near future to close to 10% a year from 2019 onwards. With healthcare spending on the rise, investment in medical technology is following suit. As a result, the medical dispensing market is one area set to grow strongly over the next five years.
American Well and Samsung Health collaboration is great for the industry, but not transformativeApril 21, 2017With the launch of the highly anticipated S8 mobile handset, Samsung also renamed its health platform to “Samsung Health”. Beyond the standard health tracking and lifestyle management features, the company has enabled a deep integration of American Well’s telehealth services in its software. This is somewhat of a milestone for the virtual consultations market. American Well, as a third party service provider, has been available on most mobile platforms for a number of years, but the partnership with Samsung brings a completely new level of exposure – an exposure that should have a positive impact on the overall usage of virtual technology for doctor consultations.
Remote patient monitoring to include non-medical devicesApril 21, 2017The remote patient monitoring market has yet to reach its full potential, and since its inception, more than two decades ago, the technology has been overhauled on multiple occasions. Another revamp is undergoing right now, as vendors are expanding the ecosystem of devices included in the actual monitoring. Last week, Medtronic Care Management Service announced the integration of Garmin’s activity tracker series, Vivofit, into its remote patient monitoring platform. Meanwhile, iHealth Labs is entering the market after its acquisition of eDevice in September last year. Since the acquisition, the two companies have been working on the so-called “iHealth Next” solution – a combination of iHealth’s suite of devices in conjunction with eDevice’s infrastructure for remote patient monitoring. It is expected that iHealth Next also supports non-medical devices such as activity monitors.
What happens after self-diagnosis?April 21, 2017The insufficient number of physicians in the world, and growing demand for healthcare services, has led many initiatives that drive the enablement of consumers to self-diagnose at home. Last week, Final Frontier Medical Devices and Dynamical Biomarkers Group went head to head, as the Xprize finalists, competing to create a medical tricorder. Final Frontier Medical Devices came in at the top spot with its DxtER solution, which weighs less than five pounds, but can diagnose 34 health conditions. However, one key question is whether healthcare sectors are ready for self-diagnosis. Surely, the growing level of responsibility from patients will improve patient engagement, but do healthcare sectors have the capacity to attend to self-diagnosed patients, given that these diagnoses are clinically valid?
