Global Digital Health Market: Snapshot

The global digital health market is driven by a rising demand for improved communication between healthcare professionals and patients so as to reduce medication errors and provide improved coordinated care. Digital health improves the quality of care by enabling access to lab results and gives drug information so that doctors can prevent harmful drug interactions. As digital health provides better and efficient care of patients as compared to traditional healthcare technology, their demand will continue to rise in the forecast period from 2017 to 2025. Digital health technologies such as digital diagnostic systems, EHR, and wireless technologies are making use of a range of data for efficient treatment of patients, including immunization dates, patient history, allergies, medication, radiology, diagnosis, lab test results, treatment plans, and insurance information. Players in the digital health market are participating in mergers and acquisitions, intensifying competition in the market. Players are striving hard to provide advanced technology that is also cost effective.

Digital technologies help in sharing patient information with other healthcare organizations, including emergency facilities, labs, pharmacies, clinics, and imaging facilities, and this is useful in cases of emergencies. On the other hand the lack of capital required for building healthcare infrastructure in developing nations is a key challenge for the global digital health market. Due to poor infrastructure and poor connectivity, there could be loss of signal and disconnection in virtual consultation and a patient could suffer.
