'Point of care' based medical treatment is a circular reference. Terms like 'home based health care' [or 'remote health care'] might make it clearer that the new technologies are intended to enable people to be treated at home without the need to travel to a doctor's office or hospital.

i remember reading news about such medical improvement collaboration by Philips, Cisco etc...there is some progress in the field but i think marred by high cost and today's economic conditions.

I couldn't make any sense of this article. X, Y and Z are working on something involving home medical devices. is that all? we need to reframe the whole discussion about medical informatics. the starting point should be people (call them patients if you must) owning, controlling access to their own data. store the data in the cloud, encrypt the hell out of it, and include a mechanism for the owner to provide selective access to doctors, hospitals, specialists.
