mHealth Elderly Home Monitoring Growth Drawing New Players to the Market, Finds ABI Research

October 09, 2014 11:55 AM Eastern Daylight Time

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Over the next 5 years, a new generation of elderly home care services will drive wearable device shipments to more than 44 million in 2019 up from just 6 million in 2013. In 2014 alone, shipments of wearable devices linked to elderly care systems will more than double over those in 2013, finds the latest ABI Research analysis of the mHealth market.

“Help! I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”

Growing adoption comes as tech savvy families increasingly turn to home monitoring offerings for assurance their aging parents and family members are safe and well. In addition, new offerings are boosting and extending a market that has long been the territory of dedicated, “Help! I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”-type personal emergency response systems. A host of niche players including BeClose, GrandCare Systems, Independa and others have all emerged to capitalize on a combination of market demand and the potential to leverage connected devices and systems.

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) is the voice of home care and hospice. NAHC represents the nation’s 33,000 home care and hospice providers, along with the more than two million nurses, therapists, and aides they employ. These caregivers provide vital services to Americans who are aged, disabled, and suffering from chronic disease. Some 12 million patients depend on home care and hospice providers. They, in turn, depend on NAHC for the best in advocacy, education, and information. NAHC is a nonprofit organization that strives for excellence in all respects.
