Homecare Information Software And Services Market Shares, Strategies, And Forecasts, Worldwide, 2010 To 2016-Aarkstore Enterprise

LEXINGTON, Massachusetts (January 1, 2010) – Announces that it has a new study on homecare information software and services. The 2010 study has 497 pages, 184 tables and figures. Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the healthcare providers worldwide move to more cost efficient healthcare modalities. Vendors are building out localized direct sales organizations, distribution partnerships, and e-commerce sites that support a home care information systems brand in every region.

Homecare is more cost efficient than nursing home or hospital care, every patient would rather stay at home if possible. As new homecare agencies proliferate in the U.S. and worldwide, one-third of homecare agencies in U.S. markets have closed or been acquired in the past five years due to the economic downturn and lack of profitability.

Challenged with declining reimbursements, a nursing shortage and low productivity even as new agencies open, there has been significant industry consolidation. Automated process brought by homecare information systems addresses management team issues. Existing providers need to improve overall operations to address these issues.

Several new studies provide large-scale, independent, quantified proof of the value of healthcare information technology have. Users can utilize the scheduling notes to alert other staff of patient preferences or supplies needed in the home. Maestro intuitive process flow provides users with many reminders, including when a patient is out of orders, when a supervisory visit is required, or when a procedure needs to be completed during a visit.

Information systems are a significant part of the home care delivery systems. Software leverages the efficiency of clinical process in ways that have never become possible before. The system leverages virtually all the administrative and financial information needed to run a successful home care company. Information can be gathered right from the charts.

The significance of integration systems is not yet realized in homecare information systems. However, as patients move from one care venue to another, the patient record is going to need to move with them. The hand-held, computer-based system guides home care clinicians through the entire patient care process. Clinicians can use structured record guides. The systems automate reporting. The market opportunity for the homecare information services providers is to enable consolidation of the 35,000 small agencies worldwide into a few large services providers. These few services providers then become customers for the homecare information services systems. Homecare information systems will be enhanced by partnerships with IBM to leverage information analytics systems.

Worldwide homecare information systems markets at $2 billion in 2009 are expected to reach $4.8 billion by 2016. Constraints on home healthcare spending in some types of coverage are more than offset by a shift away from nursing home care to assisted living homecare.

Worldwide, telemedicine markets are poised to achieve significant growth as globally coutries are faced with citizen demands for comprehensive, quality health care at affordable prices. Telemedicine is more cost efficient than nursing home or hospital care, every patient would rather stay at home if possible.  As new telemedicine equipment and services proliferate in the U.S. and worldwide, more and more vital signs based healthcare delivery is being implemented. Healthcare delivery systems are moving towards a quantum shift in care delivery.  Technology provides a way to sense and monitor heart disease, inflammation, infection, cancer, diabetic condition, and chronic condition status using technology.  This represents a quantum shift in care diagnosis.  The old methods of verbal description that the physician rarely listens to and in person visual inspection are becoming less important.  The monitoring technologies and blood work are being used in combination with imaging and telemetrics to provide a real time, continuous evaluation of patient condition.

Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the first responder and homeland security ground robots are used globally. Growth comes as the border patrols and law enforcement agencies use robots to achieve broader security in a less expensive manner, delivering the promise of automated process in yet another industry. First responder robots bring changes in every region while the globally integrated enterprise replaces nationalistic dominance, creating broader cooperative police actions that replace nationalistic wars. These police actions are aimed against the bad guys.

This cost is creating resistance among the agencies to spend such a large amount for what is seen as a device that gives little return in comparison to what a person can do all year. Costs of robots are expected to decrease rapidly in the next year, creating a much larger market than exists now. The current market at $203 million does provide a significant base for solid growth.

Vendors of homeland security and first responder robots have positioned to provide a common framework through which federal, state, local, and tribal governments can address emergencies. US federal first responder agencies are negotiating agreements with state and local government law enforcement groups to share equipment. First responder robots cost $50,000 and up, the cost of a person for one year.

Whereas a person can patrol and investigate, a first responder robot able to sniff for explosives is not justified in high quantity. .a few shared units go a long way in detecting explosives.

The challenge for vendors is to find applications where the robot is used 24×7 365 days per year. Then there is payback. An exception is an airport and a border patrol crossing point where there is continuous need to sniff for explosives.

First responder and homeland security robots are useful as patrol units. Just as foot police and patrol cars look for dangerous situations, so also a first responder robot can patrol an area with cameras and chemical sensors. First responder and homeland security robot automation of the defense process is the next wave of first responder and homeland security evolution. As automated systems and networking complement the Internet , communication is facilitated on a global basis. The first responder and homeland security charter is shifting to providing protection against terrorists and people seek to maintain a safe, mobile, independent lifestyle. Much of the first responder and homeland security mission is moving to adopt a police force training mission, seeking to achieve protection of civilian populations on a worldwide basis.

According to Susan Eustis, the lead author of the study, “the purchase of First responder and homeland security Robots s is dependent on budget constraints. The use of First responder and homeland security Robots s is based on providing a robot that is less expensive to put in the field than a trained soldier. That automation of process has appeal to those who run the first responder and homeland security.

Robots are automating first responder and homeland security ground systems, permitting vital protection of police officers and people in the field, creating the possibility of reduced fatalities in this profession. Mobile robotics operate independently of the operator.

The innovation coming from all the vendors is astounding. No one innovation is more significant than another. One vendor, BAE Systems has an ant size robot useful for reconnaissance and networking robots in development. As soldiers take up secure positions behind a wall, they deploy a small reconnaissance team. The initial deployment is poised to be a very, very small reconnaissance team. Some hopping, some flying, the stealthy autonomous reconnaissance squad vanishes into a suspicious building for several minutes, then relays the all-clear back to its partners outside when that is the case.

Use of remote-control toys in Iraq started as improvised robots to check out possible roadside bombs. There has since been a flurry of activity on the robotic explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) front since that early beginning. Deliveries of smaller and cheaper Bots are anticipated.

The emergence of a market for intelligent, mobile robots for use in the field and the confined areas of city fighting presents many opportunities. Units used in public spaces and on the border create a better, more flexible, more cost efficient first responder and homeland security.

Technology is used to actuate the disparate robot types. Core robotics research and advances in robotic technology can be applied across a variety of robotic form factors and robotic functionality. Advances feed on and off of each other. With each new round of innovation, a type of technological cross pollination occurs that improves existing robotic platforms and opens up other avenues where intelligent mobile robots can be employed, effectively creating new markets.

Roboticists are more advanced in their training and in the tools available to create units. First responder and homeland security robots have evolved from units used in the field to manage different situations that arise. Robots save lives..

Robotic security systems have an emphasis on causality reduction during law enforcement activities. This has resulted in investment in robotics technology that is useful. Robotic research is on the fast track for government spending. First responder and homeland security ground robot market forecast analysis indicates that vendor strategy is to pursue developing new applications that leverage leading edge technology. Robot solutions are achieved by leveraging the ability to innovate, to bring products to market quickly. First responder and homeland security purchasing authorities seek to reduce costs through design and outsourcing. Vendor capabilities depend on the ability to commercialize the results of research in order to fund further research. Government funded research is evolving some more ground robot capability.

Markets at $203.1 million in 2009 are anticipated to reach $3.7 billion by 2016.
