Socio-economic analysis of innovation and market development in the domain of personal health systems. Personal Health Systems (PHS) and Remote Patient Monitoring and Treatment (RMT) have the potential to alter the way healthcare is provided by increasing the quantity and quality of care. This report explores the current status of PHS and, more specifically, of the RMT market in Europe. It addresses the question of how these technologies can contribute to dealing with some of the challenges facing the European healthcare delivery systems caused by higher pressure of demand through chronic diseases and demographic change, combined with diminishing resources for health care. Uptake and diffusion of these services would potentially reduce death rates, and avoid recurring hospitalisation in a cost-effective manner. However, the report identifies various barriers which hamper the full deployment of RMT in Europe. In the conclusion, the report provides a number of tentative policy options which aim specifically to foster EU-wide deployment of RMT/PHS.
