Global Healthcare Teleconsultation Services Market to Exceed USD 497.31 Billion by 2028

Market overview

Healthcare teleconsultation services are provided to needy patients in remote locations using various telecommunication facilities at both ends. In rural areas, facilities are being built with the use of communication technology to enable doctors to assess and treat patients remotely. But, more importantly, how has this market been influenced recently, especially in light of the Covid pandemic? Medical teleconsultation services offer a cost-effective alternative to the shortage of medical personnel in rural areas. This saves the doctor’s time and energy when traveling, while effectively reducing medical costs for the rural poor. As a result, the global telehealth consultation services market is witnessing high demand from all walks of life.

Rising prevalence of chronic diseases and increasing stress on existing healthcare resources to drive the telehealth consultation services market

The increasing prevalence of various chronic diseases puts tremendous pressure on existing healthcare institutions and physicians. However, recent advancements in high-end telecommunications technology have benefited the healthcare teleconsultation services market by allowing physicians to attend to a greater number of patients without meeting them personally. This has become particularly popular among patients living in rural areas or patients with reduced mobility. Now they can easily consult their doctor via video calls, voice calls or kiosks in non-emergency situations.

The global healthcare teleconsultation services market is expected to witness rapid growth in the coming years owing to the growing number of government programs to provide facilities and promote healthcare teleconsultation services, especially in developed economies. Everyone knows how badly Covid 19 has impacted economies around the world. Although the pandemic has restored and demonstrated the relevance of health teleconsultation services, the market has been harmed nonetheless. Supply networks have been disrupted due to lockdown measures and social distancing norms. The growth of this industry has been hampered by strict rules and government restrictions, but it has made the healthcare teleconsultation services market flourish.

Video calls dominate the global healthcare teleconsultation services market
Due to their ease of use, healthcare teleconsultation services via video calls have dominated the market and are expected to maintain their dominance over the forecast period. On the other hand, kiosk has become the fastest growing segment in the global market because kiosk services are efficient. However, they carry IT risks and the laws around them are stringent.

North America is the largest market for healthcare telehealth services as patients try to keep healthcare costs down

Today, North America is the largest market for healthcare teleconsultation services in the world thanks to better reimbursement policies and wide insurance coverage in many healthcare facilities. It has been found that North American companies spend approximately $132 billion per year on telehealth services. This represents a 66% increase from 2016 and reflects the growing trend of using telehealth to improve patient outcomes. The three main reasons for this growth are lower costs, better patient experience and better coordination of care.
With improved telecommunications services in densely populated countries such as China and India, Asia-Pacific has become the fastest growing market for healthcare teleconsultation services. Furthermore, the rapid expansion of internet infrastructure and the growth in the penetration of smartphones with high-speed wireless internet connectivity has made it possible for patients to take advantage of technology and consult their doctor without leaving home.

Joint venture and partnership are the most popular choices among players to maintain in the healthcare teleconsultation services market

The market for medical teleconsultation services is growing rapidly as patients seek more convenient and cost-effective ways to connect with their doctors.
