telemedicine:stage   According to statistics gathered by the U. S. , more than 75% of the accounts for medical care accounted for by a routine activities, such as periodic inspections, testing and other kinds of monitoring. The bulk of patients requiring periodic monitoring - people suffering from chronic diseases, and that nearly half the population. Meanwhile, according to many experts, the current state of technology is allowing a large part of monitoring to automate tasks through the use of electronic systems for data collection, transmission and analysis. The first big step towards the mass implementation of these ideas can be produced medical Continua Alliance general provisions defining the methods of organizing wired and wireless data transmission between the sensors and providers of telemedicine services. Analysts from Forrester Research suggest that this market will grow to 5 billion dollars in 2010, after which will be expanded exploding, to 34 billion dollars by 2010
It is anticipated that the first phase source Data will be the usual device to monitor the physiological parameters, such as measuring blood pressure, blood sugar, pedometer, thermometers and scales, while the structure for the transmission of data provides the possibility of much more sophisticated devices. Prototype of a new generation of devices is currently being tested in clinics and the USA is a compact cardiography performed as a watch and equipped with a wireless interface for data transfer. The device is designed for continuous, online 24/7, detecting cardiac arrhythmias activities. The use of electronic components with low energy provided to operate the device in the week from a small battery. Further development of sensors, according to experts, will go towards further reducing energy consumption, which would potentially apply in lieu of chemical power sources MEMS-generators. It is also possible that some devices will be implemented in the form of implants.
The publication of the first version of Continua standards expected by the end of this year, it will contain a description of secure transportation for the transfer of data from sensors through a wireless Bluetooth, or via USB-wired connection. Concentrator such a system could make mobile phones, computers, appropriately advanced consumer audio and video electronics, or specialized devices.
In order to achieve interoperability will provide compatibility with profiles Health Device, developed forums Bluetooth SIG and the USB Implementers, as well as with standard IEEE 11073, describing the protocols and data structure for the secure transfer of medical data. Some companies, including Bluegiga, Broadcom, Cambridge Consultants, Cybercom, MindTree, Panasonic Electronic Devices, Stollmann and Toshiba, have announced solutions, including software and hardware for Continua-compatible Bluetooth/USB/IEEE11073 modules. Cambridge Consultants, moreover, has developed reference designs and tools needed to develop the first generation of monitoring devices.
