Increasing Pool of Geriatric Population and Need to Reduce Cost to Drive Demand for Home Health Care
According to the lead author of this report, the home healthcare market in Latin America has been shifting to a more precision based model of personal care. Home Health Care is the use of medical devices and various community based services in order to support those patients who are suffering from chronic diseases. In Latin America, home-based medical devices and services are playing an important role in managing the patients suffering from various conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, and blood pressure. In Latin America as with other regions in the world the growing pool of patients suffering from blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, respiratory diseases have been increasing with each passing year. This in turn, is expected to bode well for the home-based medical devices and services, as all of the aforementioned diseases require continuous monitoring which can incur high costs.
