The global adoption of telehealth technologies will potentially allow governments to make substantial savings on healthcare, while delivering important medical services to both rural and under-served communities. The telehealth market is being driven by the accelerated development of mobile technology and applications, a greater need for cost-effective healthcare, rising populations, and increased government funding. The Insurance Journal estimates that it could potentially deliver over $6 billion a year in healthcare savings in the US if the technology is widely adopted.
Telehealth could achieve substantial savings for a number of reasons, including the reduction of re-admissions linked to chronic conditions through mobile health monitoring technologies, a decrease in unnecessary use of emergency appointments through remote visits with nurses, and a lower amount of wasted capacity through telemedicine-based appointments.There is a wealth of opportunities to be exploited in the market. If telehealth providers are to realize these opportunities, they will have to develop compelling commercial models that seamlessly place their services within a wider system of integrated healthcare. Currently, the telemedicine and mobile health segments of the market are the ones to focus on, as they are some of the most promising and fast-growing across the board.
