Global Telemedicine Market: Snapshot

Telemedicine, the future of healthcare services, refers to offering assistance to patients from a distance. Chronic care management (CCM) services, a part of the umbrella term of telemedicine, are redefining the scope of this market. In a latest report published by The New England Journal of Medicine, it states the shortcomings of the IT offerings and CCM and insists on making a paradigm shift to reengineer the process of giving patients the much-needed care. These efforts are expected to make the future of CCM more patient-centric, increase the efficiency of care given to patients, and help the economic burden for both patients and hospitals. Other multiple offerings as a part of telemedicine are bringing about a significant change in the overall dynamic of the healthcare industry by making it more accessible to people and areas that were previously difficult to instantaneously access.

There are several ways through which telemedicine is improving the scope of medical care to patients across the globe. For instance, intraoperative monitoring technology allows surgeons to perform continuous checking, testing, and recording during a complex surgical procedure. This is immensely helpful as the staff in rural hospitals generally do not have the expertise to perform such kind of minute and detailed monitoring.

Medical diagnosis and treatment at “point of care” tests and treats patients rapidly at places close to where they live. This eliminates the need to visit a doctor or a hospital for tests, then waiting days for results, and then returning to the doctor for treatment. Point of care medicine relies on portable diagnosis and monitoring devices that can be sent to remote areas. Telecommunications allow physicians in rural areas to get advice from specialists present in another location or to share sophisticated medical details such as CT scans. Thus, the global telemedicine market is expected to witness a significant growth owing to the numerous ways by which, they help improve patient care.
