Remote Patient Monitoring Devices Market is projected to surpass US$ 1000 Million revenue by the end of 2024
Remote patient monitoring is gaining popularity owing to the increase in chronic diseases and aging population. In the traditional healthcare setting all the data collected is lost as soon as the patient leaves the hospital and it is only found when a patient visits again. However, remote patient monitoring device helps in collecting the data and share it even from a remote location outside hospital or clinic. The concept of telemedicine is also gaining momentum. It allows remote diagnosis and treatment of patients using a telecommunication device, this reduces cost substantially and offers care with comfort.
The manufacturers of remote patient monitoring devices are also focusing on research and development activities and increasingly investing in the same. This is being done to improve the remote patient monitoring device currently offered and also decrease the high cost of devices. Companies are also looking forward to come-up with a mobile application for remote patient monitoring, thereby, eliminating the need to spend on costly hardware. Manufacturers are developing cardiovascular and respiratory devices with increasing people suffering from various heart and breathing diseases. Hence, portable device monitoring heart rate and blood pressure. Sensor-based devices monitoring oxygen levels and to monitor medication usage are also being provided.
