Industry Description

In the future, the purchase of specialized products and related services may be restricted.  These things might not be available without a medical script or authorization from an underwriting agency.

These products may be part of a complex system to underwrite home network costs.  Specific applications or special uses of technology may qualify for financial support.  Home networks may qualify home owners for lower insurance premiums.  Ongoing geriatric care or in-home emergency medical monitoring facilitated by home networks may qualify seniors for reduced Medicare expenses.  To be sure that medical patients or users of other types of technology receive the full benefits of approved programs, only the endorsed products will be available and only through some form of monitored processing.

There are references in this list to industries and specialty applications such as health care monitors, devices for senior citizens, and central station security access devices.   The concern here may not be ownership of the devices, but authorized use of them.  Health-related products may require a doctor’s script or prescription.  Security access devices may require purchase of a service contract associated with the device.  Even THNC will have restrictions on the use of test equipment made available to members (TERS – Test Equipment Rental Service).  In that program, members must demonstrate their having successfully acquired the skills needed to operate the equipment.

Advances in technology that produce better home networks may cause cost reductions in unexpected parts of our society that leads to higher quality of life for more people.  Intelligent systems may work in unexpected ways to solve problems we and society didn’t know were there.
