There is an increase in healthcare and medical devices being pushed into the home with one intended benefit of reduced healthcare costs. This is spawning a new group of devices commonly referred to as homecare, mHealth, and wearable medical devices. This cost reduction can manifest itself in healthcare policy changes, such as the fairly recent evidenced-based waiting period for an ICD (implantable cardiac defibrillator). All this emphasis on remote care as an enabler to cost reduction is resulting in the re-evaluation of telemedicine devices and implementation methods. One specific cost reduction opportunity is converting inpatient surgical procedures to outpatient ones, since there have not been any changes for many years.
