I don't see where it says anything about "home" healthcare - point-of-care does not necessarily mean use by the patient at home. Samsung is aggressively pursuing this growing market, and the innovation and competition should push the dinosaurs to improve their processes, spend to modernize platforms, democratize through open interoperability standards, and ultimately lower equipment costs. What that means for the patient remains to be seen yet.

How does this effect companies like GE, Siemens and Philips who are trying to provide the home health solutions?

Home healthcare is attractive to many companies. Maybe we'll see many interesting products that help to monitor and diagnose patients far away from hospital. A big fortune is waiting ahead.

they are going in the right direction. After consumer electronics, strengthening the consumer healthcare is a very smart move.
