Increasing consumer trend toward online medical purchase
Vendors have been increasing online marketing and promotional activities to provide better accessibility to their products and gain more product sales. Online marketing services allow vendors to minimize setup, distribution, and operational costs, thereby reducing overheads. Many small and large vendors sell remote patient monitoring devices and accessories online. They also provide discounts and promotional offers online, which increases the number of online purchases.
Srinivas Sashidhar, a lead patient monitoring devices research analyst at Technavio, says, “Manufacturers such as Omron Healthcare, GE Healthcare, Medtronic, and Abbott sells their products through direct online platforms and provides discounts to increase their sales. Online retailing also allows consumers to compare products, their use, and efficacy through online chat and forum as well as though customer reviews. They further allow consumers to purchase products from the comfort of their homes.”
Increase in chronically ill and aging population
Globally, there has been an increase in the incidence of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, respiratory disorders, hypertension, and neurological disorders (Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and epilepsy). This is because of a variety of factors, including unhealthy dietary habits, lack of physical activity, excessive consumption of alcohol, and smoking.
“Patients with chronic conditions need to be monitored on a regular basis to avoid any untoward incidents. Presently, the emphasis is laid on the course of treatment, in the form of observations and monitoring. Remote patient monitoring devices are used to monitor or record the medical data of patients on a regular basis, and these readings are either stored or sent to the physician for analysis, which can help the physician to chart a different course of action if need be,” adds Srinivas.
Increasing need for patient-friendly devices
Vendors are increasingly investing in R&D activities and forming collaborations with technology providers to design and develop innovative remote patient monitoring devices that are portable, patient-friendly, and painless. Also, there is a huge demand for non-invasive devices such as remote monitoring devices as they offer more advantages compared with traditional systems such as bench top regular BP monitors, cardiac monitors, and blood glucose monitors.
The increasing need for patient-friendly devices will also aid in the growth of the market. Also, multiparameter remote monitoring devices can help in measuring more health parameters such as respiration rate, ECG, cardiac rate, temperature, and blood pressure in a single use. These types of devices save patients cost for medical tests and hospital visits.
