Remote patient monitoring is a healthcare service segment which allows a patient to utilize a medical device to perform and monitor a general routine test and send the concerned results of test to healthcare professionals in real time, sitting at remote locations. In alignment with the recent trend of patients desiring medical care at their homes, various remote patient monitoring devices have been launched to eliminate the overall need for frequent visits to health clinics and hospitals. Hence, remote patient monitoring devices provide a more customized treatment and post treatment plan. Remote patient monitoring is a technique generally used to receive and collect medical and other health-related information from individual patients present at one location and thus transmit the same electronically to a healthcare professional sitting at a remote location. Remote patient monitoring devices are used to analyze and monitor physiological parameters such as vital signs, blood oxygen levels, blood pressure, heart rate, and blood sugar, thus improving the quality of life, quality of care, and permits easier and earlier prediction of exacerbations and aggravations remotely. This reduces the overall number of duration of hospitalization and emergency department visits. This is attributed to the improving access to healthcare systems, large undiagnosed patient population and a high risk of developing chronic disease due to rapid urbanization.

Diabetes, various chronic heart diseases such as cancer etc. and chronic respiratory diseases are the major causes of mortality and morbidity, worldwide. According to WHO, chronic care management accounts for approximately 75% of the overall healthcare expenses. Hence, increase in prevalence of chronic illnesses creates an enormous financial burden on the caregivers. This is where remote patient technologies come into role play and identifies even the small changes in the patient’s physiological information and sustains self-monitoring. Thus, reduction of readmissions and prevention of avoidable hospitalizations is achieved using remote patient monitoring systems. Moreover, remote patient monitoring reduces the number of unnecessary visits to the doctors and reduce the overall travel-related expenses which are necessary for receiving efficient medical care. On short and long term basis, remote patient monitoring systems, by properly implementing, can expand access to quality healthcare facilities, and thus can save the total turnaround time and expenses. Increasing expenditure on healthcare facilities coupled with increasing demand for effective treatment solutions for fatal chronic diseases is anticipated to boost the overall growth of global remote patient monitoring market. The global remote patient monitoring market is also anticipated to be driven by rise in geriatric population suffering from chronic diseases, thus propelling the demand for remote patient monitoring devices. In addition, the rising awareness towards remote patient monitoring devices amongst physicians and patients, and demand for opinion based diagnosis of chronic diseases due to lack of standard diagnostic tests especially in rural areas is projected to surge the growth of global remote patient monitoring market in near future. However, lack of trained professionals to operate remote patient monitoring devices and systems is expected to hinder the growth of global remote patient monitoring market. Moreover, insufficiency in maintaining the security and privacy of stored information and data coupled with lack of general awareness on patient monitoring and lack of uniformity in device functionality are the key factors challenging the growth of global remote patient monitoring market.

The global remote patient monitoring market can be segmented on the basis of product type, end-user, application and geography. By product type, the global remote patient monitoring market can be segmented into respiratory monitors, cardiac monitors, hematological monitors and others. On the basis of end-users, the global remote patient monitoring market can be segmented into long term care centers, homecare settings, hospitals and others. On the basis of application, the global remote patient monitoring market can be segmented into diabetes, sleep apnea, hyperlipidemia, cardiac arrhythmia, ischemic diseases, hypertension and chronic respiratory diseases. On the basis of geography, the global remote patient monitoring market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Latin America, Middle East & Africa (MEA) and Asia-Pacific.
