The modern world is shifting from conventional medical treatment to technologically advanced equipped treatment services. The concept of telehealth services was conceived with the idea of exchanging data remotely between a patient at home and a doctor. Telehealth services include diagnosis and monitoring of patients, generally those with long term ailments. Telehealth includes fixed or mobile home units, which measure clinical parameters such as blood pressure, sugar level, body temperature, and others, using a wireless medium.
The global telehealth services market is growing owing to the rising adoption of these services by a large number of people suffering from long term ailments. Patients are opting for telehealth services as they reduce the number of doctor visits, thus saving both time and money. Telehealth services have helped reduce the mortality rate and the incidences of emergency admission to some extent. Today, telehealth is being used for disaster management, dentistry, consumer and professional education, counselling, and physical and occupational therapy, thus boosting the telehealth services market. However, the high installation cost of telehealth systems may hamper the growth of the global telehealth services market.
