Global Telemonitoring Platforms and Systems Market: Overview
The future of the global telemonitoring platforms and systems market looks bright with continuous advancements in the field of information technology. Telemonitoring platforms and systems facilitate easy evaluation of patients’ medical conditions by doctors and physicians on a regular basis. They allow healthcare providers to manage and monitor patients’ disease condition in an effective manner and subsequently decide appropriate treatment for them. Over the past few years, there has been an upswing in the adoption of these platforms and systems, owing to the fact that they offer improved health care quality at much lower costs. On the basis of function, the market can be categorized into glucose level telemonitoring systems, cardiac telemonitoring systems, COPD telemonitoring systems, and blood pressure telemonitoring systems.
Global Telemonitoring Platforms and Systems Market: Drivers and Restraints
Telemonitoring platforms and systems are being increasingly acknowledged across the globe for their multiple functions such as weight records, vital signs check, blood pressure monitoring, and assessment of oxygen saturation. The increasing popularity of home healthcare setting is working in favor of the market. Moreover, the widening base of geriatric population is providing a significant boost to the growth of the market.
However, the patient record transfer and electronic storage in telemonitoring platforms and systems can potentially lead to privacy and security breaches. Ineffective management of these problems can serve as an opportunity for invaders to access confidential data and possibly alter, steal, or even delete records of patients. These issues are, thus, limiting the market from realizing its utmost potential. On the other hand, increasing government initiatives, particularly in emerging economies, to improve healthcare facilities in rural areas are estimated to unfold tremendous growth opportunities for the global telemonitoring platforms and systems market.
