The SearchLite recently completed an investigation to understand the challenges and opportunities in the field of home-vent CO2 monitoring. The goal of the investigation was to understand the trends and the commercial viability of the home-vent CO2 monitoring technology. The scope of the investigation included 12 subject matter expert interviews, extensive secondary research, online discussion forum engagement, surveys and final report synthesis and analysis.
Based on the study, The SearchLite discovered that there is currently no home-vent CO2 monitoring solution currently available for patients. There is a market need for cost-efficient home-vent CO2 monitoring. The biggest challenges for such product to go to market are: 1) obtain reimbursement by insurance, 2) educate the caregivers at home, 3) ensure patient compliance, 4) manage and integrate data, and 5) adapt to all major home ventilators on the market. Comprehensive research, product development and clinical trials are required to overcome those challenges and fulfill the market need.
This report is being provided as an exclusive courtesy to the experts who volunteered their time to speak with The SearchLite directly and offer their perspectives on emerging trends, future challenges as well as opportunities of home-vent CO2 monitoring. We hope that you find the report useful and want to extend our thanks to all who generously donated their time and expertise.
