As the number of elderly patients in the U.S. increases, so does the demand

for home healthcare services and products. Annual revenues for the U.S. home-health

market topped $42 billion in 1999, according to a new strategic report from

Frost & Sullivan, with labor and nursing services accounting for about 95%

of that total. The Frost & Sullivan report, "U.S. Home Health Care

Markets," also found that advancing technologies are allowing more patients

to receive healthcare within their own homes, thus providing the greatest impetus

for overall market growth in both the product and services sectors.
