Growth Factors

Key drivers of the market include increasing incidences of chronic conditions and rising demand for self-care. Furthermore, enhancing internet application, virtual medicine and rising demand for centralization of healthcare are expected to save on cost incurred, which is one of the critical success factors attributing to market growth.

In the U.S. both state and federal laws have evolved to facilitate the widespread use of telemedicine to cope up with the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, in March 6, 2020 the U.S. president signed Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act. It includes USD 8.0 billion emergency funding for the federal agencies and to expand reimbursement coverage for telehealth services. Various U.S. states also waived of the licensure for better utilization of the service. This positively impacted the market growth during the pandemic.

Rapid advancements in technology is further expected to boost the demand for online consultation, thereby contributing to the market growth of telemedicine solutions and services over the forecast period. For instance, in April 2020, American Well launched Amwell Private Practice that is a secure, simple and cost-effective solution for doctors to deliver virtual primary or specialty care for COVID19 patients. There has been a significant rise in telemental health visits over the past decade in the U.S. and the trend is expected to continue during the forecast period, thereby contributing to the adoption of telemedicine systems by hospitals and healthcare settings.

Increase Tele-nursing and Remote Care to Handle Solutions to Handle Larger Patient Pool

The increasing patient pool has created a huge burden on existing healthcare systems of the world. Patient complaints and infections have created mild panic situations in developed and developing countries. A large percentage of these patients represent near normal situations and false alarms. Many of these cases arise due to misinformation regarding medical applications and unnecessary confusion or panic. These problems can be effectively filtered out by trained front level medical practitioners i.e., nursing staff and practice doctors. This filtering can be efficiently implemented to decrease workload and increase the effectiveness and productivity of experienced medical practitioners, who are scarce in many regions. This also improves patient care and paves the way for providing increased attention toward more serious cases that are highly time-bound (i.e. emergency cases).

Since nurses are often well informed about the appropriate expert medical practitioner specializing in a particular case. According to the WHO, stroke accounted for 6 million deaths, and more than 2 million people died of injuries and accidents globally every year. Such emergency cases would highly benefit from timely, accurate and organized telemedicine service, thereby reducing global fatalities.

Increasing demand for personal healthcare and privacy boosts the market of telemedicine

The out of pocket per capita spending on healthcare has increased in past few years across the people across globe. Thus, there have being huge demand in the personal healthcare services amongst growing patient burden. These outpatients had shifted to other forms of patient care i.e., telemedicine, which witnessed constant growth rate.

This demonstrated that people were favoring telemedicine and personal healthcare over hospital visits. This trend is expected to continue in the future and telemedicine is likely to replace outpatient hospital visits. Individuals consider hospital infections, location convenience and maintenance of privacy as the primary factors for preferring at home telemedicine solutions. Telemedicine usage, therefore, is expected to rise with the increased demand for personal healthcare.
