Market Dynamics:


Increased demand for remote healthcare.

The awareness of the telehealth has increased mainly post pandemic. Saving costs, efficiency, quality treatment and fast diagnosis are the main reasons for the increase in the demand for the remote healthcare. Healthcare providers are also increasingly integrating telemedicine into their practices, with many offering virtual visits as a standard part of their services. By increasing awareness and promoting the benefits of remote healthcare, patients can have greater access to care and improved convenience.

Furthermore, several studies have shown that patients who have used telemedicine are highly satisfied with the experience and would be willing to use it again in the future. Many patients are interested in continuing to use telehealth even after the pandemic, and healthcare providers are showing an increased interest in integrating it into their practices. As a result, the demand has increased for the remote healthcare by time and people will be using it more often in the future too.


Technical issues and limited access

Patients in rural or remote areas may have limited access to high-speed internet or reliable technology, preventing them from using telemedicine. Additionally, technical issues such as poor video or audio quality, dropped calls, or connectivity issues can interfere with the patient-doctor interaction, potentially leading to misdiagnosis or inadequate treatment.

These technical issues can sometimes lead to the technical errors regarding the treatment, diagnosis, or the readings of the treatment. Specially in case of the acute care where the fast and emergency treatment is expected, the technical complications will be a real hurdle in getting the rapid treatment. Therefore, it can act as a major hindrance factor in the growth of the acute care telemedicine market.


Delivering specialized care like mental health services

Patients can have virtual consultations with mental health professionals from the comfort of their own homes, reducing barriers to care such as transportation and time constraints. Telemedicine provides a promising avenue for delivering specialized care, such as mental health services, to patients who may not have had access to these services otherwise. By addressing potential drawbacks and ensuring that patients have access to high-quality, secure, and reliable telepsychiatry services, healthcare providers can improve access to care and health outcomes for patients with mental illnesses. Mental health is an important topic, especially after a pandemic.

It was difficult for the people to get the therapies offline as going to clinics and hospitals was risky. Therefore, for such specialized care delivery, telemedicine helped a lot keeping the confidential data of the patient. Virtually, people were ready to open up about their mental health concerns and it was easy for the clinicians in delivering the treatment to them. As a result, this acts as a good opportunity for propelling the growth of the market.

Delivery Landscape:

For example, Clinician to clinician telemedicine can be used in various healthcare settings, such as hospitals, clinics, and long-term care facilities. Additionally, it is particularly useful for specialties such as radiology, pathology, and critical care, where timely consultations can be critical for patient outcomes.

Clinician-to-clinician telemedicine use cases in acute settings aiding a patient's care team by offering them online access to specialists, enabling clinicians to create more flexible labour models, which would be particularly crucial during acute episodes. Although there are several use cases, the most notable examples of health systems utilising synchronized clinician-to-clinician telemedicine are in telepsychiatry and tele neurology. However, applications are available in emerging areas such as tele nephrology and infectious disease care. Tele-ICU monitoring is yet another telemedicine tool used by health systems and hospitals to organize care for patients in critical care settings.

Application Landscape:
