The one consensus about health care is that its cost growth is unsustainable: according to some estimates, it was expected to reach at least 17.3% of GDP, according to the Center for Medicare Services (CMS).

Today home monitoring and telehealth technology markets, self-care technologies, retail clinics, and use of mobile health and online websites help individuals and caregivers to manage chronic disease.
