Telehealth (connected healthcare services that are enabled by telecoms) could play an important role in relieving this situation. This report assesses the telehealth market and the extent of the opportunity for communications service providers (CSPs).

About this report


EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS


Executive summary: CSPs entering the telehealth market must be prepared to make significant investment and take a long-term view


The telehealth market has persistent barriers to entry, which will only be resolved in the long term


The healthcare sector is being forced to change, which will bring new opportunities underpinned by telehealth applications


Recommendations


FOUR KEY HEALTHCARE OPPORTUNITIES


Opportunity: Rising healthcare costs and changing demographics accentuate the need for sustainable telehealth models


Barriers: CSPs will need to take a long-term approach to breaking down the barriers to telehealth adoption


Four telehealth application groups could contribute to sustainable healthcare, but wellness is a less tangible proposition for CSPs


Telehealth applications could address some of the pain points in the healthcare sector, but will face significant challenges


SIZING THE MARKET OPPORTUNITY


The market will grow significantly from a very small base, but the overall opportunity will be small


Assisted living: Demand for solutions is growing, but funding is not always available


Assisted living: mPERS will account for a growing share of total PERS connections during the forecast period


RPM: This is a core opportunity, but scale is difficult to achieve


RPM: The number of connections will grow at a CAGR of 50% by 2020 and cellular's share will increase to 50%


RPM: Connectivity is a small part of the revenue opportunity


Telemedicine: These services are complex and even well-established players are still overcoming business model challenges


Telemedicine: North America will drive telemedicine adoption throughout the forecast period


Wellness: Platforms signal the convergence of the clinical and non-clinical environments


Wellness: The B2C model will be difficult to monetise and the B2B model will complement corporate wellness programmes


CSP STRATEGIES


If CSPs want to get involved in healthcare, they must decide where they want to play in the healthcare value chain and prepare for the long term


For each application, CSPs must identify the core capabilities they can bring to support a telehealth offering


ATandamp;T will launch its ForHealth wellness application and platform in 2015, which will support various ecosystem players


Deutsche Telekom has invested in a healthcare business unit and is focusing on key assets to build enabling platforms


Telefónica's significant acquisitions enrich its telehealth offering and enable it to play a prominent role in the healthcare ecosystem
