Remote Patient Monitoring Revenue will Reach $1.15B

Clinical-grade remote patient monitoring (RPM) is a solution that involves the secure transmission of medical data collected on devices, via telecommunications services. It's enabled through text, sound, images or other digital media used for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of healthcare patients.

The applications of emerging technologies such as the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Big Data analytics are enabling vendors to develop new use cases for remote patient monitoring.

Remote Patient Monitoring Market Development

In recent years, venture capitalists have increasingly invested in start-ups with competencies in these areas, especially integrated and lower-cost monitors and sensors. With this development, RPM will help to shift some healthcare services from the hospital to the home.

According to the latest market study by Frost & Sullivan, RPM is forecast to become a mainstream medical service, with related revenues growing to $1.15 billion in 2023 at a strong CAGR.

"AI technology is poised to become more visible across the healthcare process and clinical workflows. There will be significant opportunities in the virtual assistant space and other data-driven AI applications," said Chandni Mathur, an analyst at Frost & Sullivan.

HealthTech vendors are also choosing the bring-your-own-device model (BYOD), giving people the flexibility of using their own hardware. Data-driven technologies such as predictive analytics and data visualization are also gaining momentum.

"Europe is an enthusiastic adopter of RPM solutions, with the highest growth expected from the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, and Sweden," noted Mathur.

Furthermore, the imminent spate of regulatory approvals across Europe for consumer-grade wearables to monitor vital signs will prove a huge growth driver over the next five years.

Outlook for Remote Patient Monitoring Growth

Going forward, it will be essential for HealthTech vendors to further explore the combination of emerging technologies to deliver innovative new services. For further growth opportunities, RPM vendors should:

  • Partner with health systems in different countries to deploy RPM solutions for data gathering and, eventually, precise risk stratification.
  • Integrate monitoring data from disparate medical-grade wearables or data collection tools into a single platform.
  • Collaborate with telemedicine providers to offer a holistic service.
  • Offer a continuous RPM system coupled with predictive AI that provides actionable insights when required and reduces manual intervention.

How the COVID-19 Pandemic Advanced Telehealth Adoption

The global COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital transformation across many industries. As an example, consider the healthcare sector. Some routine medical situations can be diagnosed and resolved online. While the trend was already in motion long before the pandemic arrived, the adoption of telehealth increased rapidly in 2020. Around the world, many governments responded to the disruption and inaccessibility of healthcare facilities by loosening previous regulations and restrictions on the practice of telemedicine apps, and teleconsultations. This decision resulted in the mass adoption of these medical services among patients and providers. According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, telemedicine will save the healthcare industry $21 billion in costs by 2025 -- that's rising from an estimated $11 billion in 2021. This increased app usage represents an anticipated growth rate of over 80 percent in the next four years. Telehealth Services Market Development The co

Worldwide Semiconductor Demand will Accelerate in 2021

The technology sector is a key driver of the U.S. economy. Therefore, components like semiconductors play an important role in America's future. The 'CHIPS for America Act' is a new law that calls for incentives on domestic semiconductor manufacturing and investments in research and development. But these renewed efforts will require years of ongoing commitment. Meanwhile, despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the semiconductor market performed well in 2020. However, new demand by industry was uneven throughout last year due to global lockdowns, remote working adoption, and shifts in consumer and commercial buying behavior. Worldwide semiconductor revenue grew to $464 billion in 2020 -- that's an increase of 10.8 percent compared to 2019, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). Semiconductor Technology Market Development IDC now forecasts that the semiconductor market will reach $522 billion in 2021, that's a 12.5 percent

Hyper-automation Propels Superior Business Process Redesign

When the world was disrupted by a global pandemic during 2020, many CEOs and their board of directors were consumed by reacting to immediate problems. Meanwhile, a few forwarding-thinking enterprise leaders also paused to invest in accelerating their prescient digital transformation agenda. What enables executives to envision an opportunity while others see only challenges? Strategic foresight, and a willingness to embrace the apparent changes that are transforming the legacy status quo. During this period of uncertainty, hyper-automation investment has gained new momentum. Hyperautomation is the application of advanced technologies that augment humans by helping to streamline processes in new ways that are significantly more impactful than the legacy approach. Hyperautomation Market Development The global market for technology that enables hyperautomation will reach $596.6 billion in 2022, according to the latest worldwide market study by Gartner. This is up from $481.6 billion in 202
