Journalists and analysts need to understand telehealth market segmentation

It is not helpful when recent analyst reports “group patient-to-patient email, robotic surgery, store and forward technology, telemedicine equipment, clinic-to-clinic video conferencing, and home monitoring devices in the same market space.” In No Clear Consensus on Telemedicine Market Size (Hope Healthcare Review) AMD president Steve Normandin makes the case that people will be better served if analysts and the journalists who report them did not conflate different types of telehealth/telemedicine. To support efforts to clarify market definitions, AMD also offers a primer in the different definitions.
