Home healthcare is defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National
Center for Health Statistics as, “healthcare provided to individuals and families in their places of
residence for the purpose of promoting, maintaining, or restoring health or for maximizing the level
of independence while minimizing the effects of disability and illness, including terminal illness.” Last
year, an estimated 18 million people received home healthcare in the U.S., and most of these
individuals also used associated home care products. With the aging of the “baby boom” generation
and the increase in patient life spans--a trend not limited to the U.S.--the numbers of home care
patients will continue to grow. As patient life spans are extended with more sophisticated medical
care and new technologies, and home care becomes an increasingly important and accepted means
to contain healthcare costs for managed care providers, this market segment is poised for significant
growth in the near future. The purpose of this TriMark Publications report is to describe the specific
segment of the home medical testing devices markets, with particular emphasis on the United States
market. The U.S. market for home care products, testing, devices and equipment continues to post
steady gains, primarily as a result of: 1) the aging population, 2) a growing trend to out-patient care
and the corresponding shift of chronic care patients from hospitals, and 3) extended care facilities to
the home. In other areas of the world, the results vary depending on the economies of the country
and the health sophistication of the consuming public. This analysis presents an overview of the
home medical testing devices market with the latest information regarding emerging new products,
new markets for older products/technologies and industry trends.
