Huntington Hospital named one of Healthgrades 2017 America's 50 Best Hospitals for 4th year in a row (21.02.2017)
Huntington Hospital announced that it has received the Healthgrades 2017 America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award, for the 4th year in a row (2014-2017). The distinction makes Huntington Hospital the top 1% of more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide for its consistent, year-over-year superior clinical performance as measured by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.

“We are tremendously proud to be recognized among America’s 50 Best Hospitals by Healthgrades for the fourth year in a row,” said Stephen A. Ralph, president and CEO, Huntington Hospital. “For 125 years, our goal has been to provide excellent health care and compassionate service to each patient by bringing together outstanding physicians, caring nurses, professional staff and advanced technologies. This award is a tribute to every person who works to achieve that goal.”

From 2013 through 2015, patients treated in hospitals achieving Healthgrades America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award have on average a 26.1% lower risk of dying than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive this award, as measured across 19 rated conditions and procedures where mortality is the outcome. During this same period, if all other hospitals, as a group, had performed at the level of America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award recipients across these 19 procedures and conditions, on average 176,473 lives could potentially have been saved.

“Our analysis shows that there is tremendous variation in clinical outcomes across hospitals, so we commend the recipients of the America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award for delivering exceptional quality care to their patients,” said Brad Bowman, chief medical officer, Healthgrades. “As consumers take a more active role in managing their own health, they can have confidence that hospitals that have achieved the America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award stand above the rest."

In January 2017, Huntington Hospital was recognized as a recipient of Healthgrades Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence for the 11th consecutive year in a row. In addition, Huntington Hospital was the only hospital in Los Angeles in 2016 to be named one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals and receive the Outstanding Patient Experience Award.

The 50 recipients of the America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award are distinguished for overall clinical excellence across a broad spectrum of care. During the 2017 study period (2013-2015), these hospitals showed superior performance in clinical outcomes for patients in the Medicare population across at least 21 of 32 most common inpatient conditions and procedures, as measured by objective performance data (risk-adjusted mortality and in-hospital complications).

Berg Insight says remote patient monitoring revenues to reach 32 billion euros in 2021 (14.02.2017)
Revenues for remote patient monitoring (RPM) solutions reached € 7.5 billion in 2016, according to a new study released by Berg Insight. This includes revenues from medical monitoring devices, mHealth connectivity solutions, care delivery platforms and mHealth care programs.

RPM revenues are expected to grow at a CAGR of 33.8 percent between 2016 and 2021, reaching € 32.4 billion at the end of the forecast period. Savings attributable to payers and care providers will by far exceed this amount as connected care solutions can allow better health outcomes to be achieved more cost efficiently. The new care models enabled by these technologies are often consistent with patients’ preferences of living more healthy, active and independent lives.

The healthcare industry is advancing towards an age where connected healthcare solutions will be part of standard care practices. “All health related devices that can be connected will be connected and patient data management therefore becomes increasingly important”, says Anders Frick, Senior Analyst at Berg Insight. He describes how the line between medical devices and health gadgets becomes blurred and traditional as well as startup companies try to position themselves as important players in the ecosystem for mHealth data. National PHR systems, device manufacturing companies, independent app producers and tech giants such as Google, Apple and Microsoft are some of the stakeholders. Another major trend is the consumerization of medical-grade mHealth devices and apps.

During 2016 hundreds of thousands of consumers have connected medical monitoring devices via their smartphones to cloud platforms. This marks a substantial shift that will open up new opportunities in the remote patient monitoring market in the coming years. “Payers and healthcare providers will have opportunities to take advantage of this trend, as consumers that already have started to use connected medical devices more easily can be onboarded onto new mHealth care programs”, concludes Mr Frick.
The new mHealth study from Berg Insight also investigates the connected AED market. An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses and corrects life-threatening heart problems in a patient. Yearly shipments of AEDs are around 500,000 units globally. Several vendors recently started to offer AEDs featuring built-in connectivity whereas others are only in the planning stage to add connectivity. Berg Insight estimates that about 10 percent of all AEDs sold this year will be connected, a percentage that will increase to 50 percent by 2021.
