Telemonitoring products are used for monitoring health parameters such as vital signs,
symptoms and medication use at a location that is remote from that of the healthcare
provider. The data are then transmitted to a medical professional for review and potential
action using telephone, mobile communication or internet technologies.

Telemonitoring is particularly suitable for patients with chronic diseases that need regular
medical supervision, including congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary
disease, asthma and diabetes. They can also be used to monitor the effects of implantable
cardiac devices and anticoagulation drugs such as warfarin, as well as to assess medication
adherence.

There are many companies active in the telemonitoring market that come from a diverse
range of industries, including telecoms companies such as Vodafone and Orange, IT
companies such as Intel and Hewlett-Packard, electronics companies such as Bosch and LG
Electronics, major medical device manufacturers such as GE Healthcare, Medtronic and Philips
Healthcare, and companies solely focused on telemedicine such as Tunstall Healthcare and
Viterion TeleHealthcare. Market leaders currently include Honeywell HomMed, Intel-GE Care
Innovations (a joint venture between GE and Intel), Philips Healthcare, Robert Bosch
Healthcare (part of Bosch) and Tunstall Healthcare.
