Point-of-Care Technologies: The Coming Impact on Standard of Care

January 19, 2014 | State of the Market Report

The health care industry is in the midst of a transformative change. It is undergoing reform through initiatives that focus on improving patient outcomes, tying provider reimbursement to quality metrics (rather than traditional fee for services), adopting electronic patient records, and developing accountable care organizations. One of the major enablers of these changes on the technology side is the proliferation of point-of-care (POC) technologies that offer the promise of improving outcomes and reducing costs through increasing access and use of diagnostic and monitoring solutions. The POC market encompasses a wide range of products used outside the traditional centralized care settings, such as laboratories and large imaging wards, by either health care professionals or consumers. We explore the role of point-of-care technologies across example disease/condition-segmented application spaces and assess their potential to disrupt existing solutions.
