Market estimates include pre- and post-COVID-19 impact on the online doctor consultation market -
Person-to-person transmission is one of the key factors associated with the increase in the incidence of COVID-19 across the globe. Consequently, governments around the world have enforced lockdown at different levels, limiting the movement of people. However, this may affect patients in need of a doctor consultation. Online doctor consultation services can largely mitigate the risk of unnecessary exposure under such situations and ensure continuity of care to patients without compromising on the speed and quality of care. Several vendors are also launching COVID-19 related apps to provide people with the necessary support. For instance, in March 2020, Babylon Healthcare launched a new service that provides users with updated information about coronavirus, its symptoms, and also helps them get appropriate assistance. Developments such as these will have a positive impact on market growth.
Technavio's custom research reports offer detailed insights on the impact of COVID-19 at an industry level, a regional level, and subsequent supply chain operations. This customized report will also help clients keep up with new product launches in direct & indirect COVID-19 related markets, upcoming vaccines and pipeline analysis, and significant developments in vendor operations and government regulations.
The market is driven by the growing adoption of remote patient monitoring. In addition, the imbalance between high patient influx and understaffing at health centers is anticipated to boost the growth of the online doctor consultation market.
The increasing demand for remote patient monitoring is one of the key factors driving the market growth. Remote patient monitoring includes collecting clinical and other health-related data through digital technologies. Healthcare professionals use this data to make assessments and recommendations for the effective treatment of patients. In addition, remote patient monitoring helps in providing patient-centric care at homecare settings, thereby reducing the rate of hospital admissions. Remote patient monitoring solutions are used as an early symptom management tool to monitor patients with chronic conditions. This also curbs healthcare costs and increases patients’ access to care in areas with limited healthcare resources. As a result, the demand for remote patient monitoring is increasing, thereby stimulating demand for online doctor consultations.
