Technological Advancements is Driving the Growth of Remote Patient Monitoring Market
The remote patient monitoring market has seen a rise in technology-driven advancements that are driving the growth of remote patient monitoring systems. Remote patient monitoring has the ability to provide access to healthcare from remote locations and also it helps reduce costs improving the results.
Solutions for connected health have increased due to the advancements in technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud Computing, and artificial intelligence. For instance, Bluetooth-based headsets are being used to measure vital signs such as heart rate, body temperature, and blood pressure. It helps doctors and healthcare practitioners to monitor patients remotely from any location.
Furthermore, with the use of smartphone apps, remote patient monitoring is becoming efficient and easier. For instance, My medical app tracks health information from different sources which includes personal medical records and fitness tracking data. Thus, it is useful to provide a customized plan for the patient and thus technological advancements are driving the growth of the remote patient monitoring market.
Increase in the Use of Wearables in Remote Patient Monitoring Market is Driving the Growth
Wearables in patient monitoring devices, smart implants, and biosensors are used for monitoring chronic disease in the patient which includes continuous temperature monitoring, glucose monitoring, pulse oximetry and blood pressure monitoring. The wearables have next-generation advanced technologies such as the Internet of Things.
For instance, the Apple Watch Series 4, with its Fall Detection and ECG features, has recently been cleared by the FDA for use as an over-the-counter diagnostic tool for assessing cardiac health and detecting atrial fibrillation. Additionally, glucose monitoring devices such as the Dexcom G6 and FreeStyle Libre help diabetics to monitor their blood sugar levels without having to prick their fingers.
These devices often come with dedicated smartphone apps that allow users to conveniently view their data. Furthermore, these devices are connected to the Internet of Things, allowing physicians to remotely monitor and manage the conditions of their patients. Wearable biosensors collect important signs such as blood pressure, and electrocardiography. These are major factors which are driving the growth of the remote patient monitoring market.
High Cost Associated with the Installation and Training Process for RPM to Hamper the Market Growth
The cost of installing an remote patient monitoring system includes the cost of training and installation, which can range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars depending on the system's complexity. A basic system that just communicates vital signs, for instance, may cost approximately or less than $500, whereas an advanced system with a wide range of systems may cost more than $10,000.
In addition, the cost of maintaining and updating the RPM system should be incorporated into the overall expenses. Over time, regular maintenance, software upgrades, and technical support services may incur additional costs. Furthermore, the scalability and customization options of the system can influence its price range.
More advanced features, such as real-time data analysis and predictive maintenance capabilities, may contribute to a higher cost. It is worth mentioning that however, that investing in an extensive solid RPM system can result in substantial long-term benefits such as greater operational efficiency, decreased downtime, and improved asset management.
The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the demand for RPM systems. Healthcare providers have found ways to remotely monitor patients,reducing the need for hospital visits. It has thus led to the increase in demand and adoption of RPM technology, expansion of telehealthcare infrastructure and facilitated remote patient healthcare.
RPM systems enabled early detection and cure of COVID-19 cases, helping managethe chronic conditions remotely reducing the burden on healthcare systems, enhancing the safety of the patient and driving innovation in technology. As a result, RPM systems have significantly transformed the delivery of healthcare during the pandemic by continuity of care and reduction of exposure risks and positively impacting the global remote patient monitoring market.
