Market Overview

Incorporating technological advances and electronic communications into different healthcare operations is referred to as digital health. Improving patient treatment, disease management, and user's entire healthcare experience includes telemedicine, medical wearables, electronic health records including EMR and EHR healthcare apps, health analytics, and much more.

The first digitally based universal health care program in India, known as Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY), uses data from the state governments of Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh. RSBY, a smart-card-focused program, is India's first attempt at a digital healthcare system. As in the past, its advocates argued for its usage to offer high-quality healthcare at a lesser cost. The experiences of this plan have significant consequences for the digital healthcare scene in India.

Prevention of illness and prevention of diseases, safety for patients, ethics, interoperability, data security, intellectual property, privacy, patient engagement, cost-effectiveness, and affordability are all factors that are considered when using digital health appropriately. Digital mental health solutions are in high demand due to rising mental health and wellness awareness. The use of platforms and apps for treatment, stress reduction, and mindfulness exercises has grown. Technology has made significant strides, especially in wearables, sensors, mobile devices, and telecommunications infrastructure.

  • Over the past decade, World Bank has invested $4 billion in digital health for health information systems and digital governance.
  • The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, India launched a scheme Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission in order to strengthen the delivery of advanced technologies in healthcare services. Over the period of two years, 45 crore Ayushman Bharat Health Accounts have been created across the nation.
  • In June 2023, The European Commission and the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the beginning of a historic collaboration in digital health in which the WHO will adopt the digital COVID-19 accreditation system of the EU to create a global system that will aid in facilitating global mobility and shield citizens around the world from present and potential health threats, including pandemics. The WHO Global Digital Health Certification Network (GDHCN), which will create digital products to promote improved health for all, has this as its first cornerstone.

Market Dynamics


Rising prevalence of chronic diseases

Monitoring vital signs, medication compliance, and lifestyle choices is frequently necessary for chronic diseases. Patients can track their health parameters in real time and share this information with healthcare practitioners thanks to digital health technology like wearables, smartphone apps, and remote monitoring equipment. Early chronic disease detection and intervention are made more accessible by digital health technologies. Wearable technology, for instance, can monitor indications, including blood pressure, glucose levels, and heart rate variability, enabling prompt alterations to treatment regimens and lifestyle choices.

For instance, In India, a minimum of one chronic illness has been estimated to impact roughly 21% of the older population. In rural locations, 17% of older adults have chronic medical conditions, compared to 29% in metropolitan areas. Diabetes and hypertension make up around 68% of all chronic disorders.

Rising need to curb healthcare costs

The quick development of technology has opened new possibilities for cost- and process-saving healthcare process optimization. Digital health solutions use telemedicine, health information systems, wearables, and artificial intelligence to deliver more effective and economical healthcare services. Proactive healthcare measures are made possible by digital health solutions. Vital signs and lifestyle behaviors can be tracked using wearable technology and smartphone applications. Early health issue detection enables you to address problems before they worsen, avoiding expensive procedures. For instance, based on feedback from over 80 health insurance companies surveyed during the summer of 2022, HR advice firm Segal recently forecast a 7.4% per-person price rise for open-access preferred-provider policies in 2023.


Data privacy concerns

Digital health platforms gather and handle biometric data, medical histories, treatment plans, and other vulnerable information about people. This information may result in significant privacy violations and even personal injury if not managed appropriately. Digital health platforms are desirable for hackers as intrusions become more common. A successful violation could lead to identity theft, fraud, and possibly compromised medical care by allowing unauthorized access to private patient information. Concern over the commercial usage of health data has to be raised. Patients fear that their data may be sold or used for specialized advertising, creating a possible contradiction between the interests of profit-driven businesses and the welfare of their patients.

Data accuracy and reliability

Only accurate and trustworthy data can result in accurate diagnoses, poor treatment decisions, and potentially damaging patient outcomes. For healthcare providers and organizations, inaccurate or unreliable data may result in non-compliance with regulatory obligations, which could have legal and financial repercussions. Erroneous information may reduce patient involvement and confidence, potentially lowering adherence to treatment regimens and medical advice. Interoperability initiatives can be improved by accurate and consistent data, which could result in fragmented patient care and information gaps.


Rising demand for remote patient monitoring services

By removing the need for regular in-person visits, remote monitoring increases access to healthcare for people with mobility impairments who reside in rural locations or have other logistical difficulties getting to physical appointments. The COVID-19 pandemic has advanced remote monitoring and telemedicine to deliver care while limiting in-person interaction. The significance and viability of remote monitoring technologies have been brought to light by this experience. Remote patient monitoring enhances telemedicine by giving medical professionals objective data during virtual consultations. Combining these elements results in an extensive approach to patient care that guarantees better healthcare delivery.

Access to real-time patient data is one of remote patient monitoring's (RPM) most essential advantages in terms of helping to improve chronic care management. RPM usage has skyrocketed since the outbreak of COVID-19, and experts anticipate continuing this trend. In the United States, RPM was used by a projected 29.1 million patients in 2020; by 2025, that figure is expected to rise to 70.6 million.

Advancement in healthcare IT infrastructure

EHR systems digitally retain patient data, making it more straightforward for healthcare facilities to access, share, and analyze medical records. Improved IT infrastructure makes Higher-quality video conferencing and real-time communication possible, allowing for online consultations with medical specialists. Sophisticated algorithms can analyze large datasets to find trends, forecast illness development, and suggest individualized treatment regimens. Advanced IT infrastructure integrates strong security measures to prevent data breaches, ensure compliance with healthcare standards, and uphold patient trust.

  • For instance, Virtual assistants and chatbots driven by AI will increase, offering consumers individualized health advice and guiding them through telemedicine platforms.
