The rising incidence of chronic diseases is a global concern, and these diseases cause extra financial burden on healthcare sectors. Telehomecare is a pioneering way to provide care, monitor patients, and transmit information by using latest telecommunication technologies. Monitoring allows early-stage identification of disease, thus preventing chronic disease conditions. Telehome systems can be used to track and support patients with a variety of respiratory and chronic conditions that can be treated without the need of hospital visits. Furthermore, telehome services could also help reduce communications in person and lower the spread of communicable diseases. The implementation of telehome services also benefits patients economically and lowers the burden on physicians. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), chronic diseases are the leading causes of death worldwide, accounting for 60% of total deaths. Among all chronic diseases, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of deaths. The prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, CVDs, stroke, respiratory diseases, and diabetes is increasing due to alterations in lifestyle and lack of access to preventive care. The causes of chronic diseases may vary from genetic disposition to environmental factors and oxidative stress. The rising incidence of these chronic diseases is propelling the demand and adoption of telemedicine platforms.
Telehomecare programs introduced in different countries include the Whole System Demonstrator (WSD) project in the UK, Veterans’ Health Segmentation (VHA) project in the US, and the TELEKART program in Denmark. These telehomecare programs aim at assisting in reducing, managing, and preventing the occurrence of chronic diseases by remote monitoring of patients. In addition, in 2018, UNICEF developed RapidPro, a unique and innovative dashboard-system, to help the Malaria Sub-directorate of the Ministry of Health (MoH) in keeping track of health; the system is in effect since 2018, spanning 20 provinces and 20,000 villages. UNICEF is likely to continue to refine and expand the use of telemedicine tools to enhance the capabilities of communities and governments to manage HIV and malaria infections, awareness, immunization, and integrated national data as well as to ensure the long-term sustainability and scalability of the RapidPro program, as it is gradually being handed over to the government
In terms of type, the global telemedicine market is bifurcated into telehospital and telehome. In 2020, the telehome segment accounted for a larger market share. The market growth for this segment can be attributed to the key driving factors such as rising geriatric population, growing prevalence of chronic diseases and conditions, and shortage of physicians.
Based on delivery mode, the global telemedicine market is segmented into mobile, web, and call centers. The mobile segment held the largest market share in 2020, and it is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Mobile telephone devices are an important component of the telemedicine system. Through a mobile, patients and healthcare providers can communicate and exchange data. Smartphones are extensively used worldwide. Telemedicine applications and software can be operated to manage data. By using mobile devices, through internet connections, patient data can be transferred and managed remotely. The increasing internet penetration in developing countries is expected to support the growth of the telemedicine market.
