eHealth Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

eHealth has several advantages over traditional clinical data management techniques, including eliminating manual record-keeping and facilitating quick access to patient information. Additionally, it is projected that automated & interoperable healthcare information systems would optimize payment for ambulatory and inpatient healthcare providers while enhancing patient happiness, lowering healthcare costs, increasing efficiency, reducing mistakes, and improving medical care.

The main factors driving the eHealth market are the expansion of government programs promoting the use of e-health products and services, the rise in the demand for e-health solutions to manage regulatory compliance, and the shortage of healthcare workers. In contrast, more prospects in developing countries, the growth of the mHealth, telehealth, and remote patient monitoring sectors, and an increase in the adoption of e-health solutions in outpatient care facilities are anticipated to offer attractive growth opportunities for the market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The eHealth market is being driven by ongoing improvements in mobile technology, which are assisting in spreading eHealth programs. The ability to share information across various places is made feasible by telehealth systems for healthcare practitioners. In addition, the usage of home telehealth solutions increased dramatically for IT organizations during the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. On the other hand, many governments have published telemedicine guidelines to address the requirements of remote, difficult-to-reach populations. As a result, the eHealth market is expected to increase during the forecast period.

Market Growth Factors

Surged use in outpatient care facilities

E-health and telehealth will advance with information science, technology, medicine, and biotechnology advancements. As a result, patients and healthcare workers in the future will be much more accustomed to using cutting-edge equipment, services, and software. Also, it is becoming increasingly clear that eHealth allows healthcare professionals to improve health systems and convert them from "detect and treat" to "predict and prevent" models. As a result, activities using eHealth solutions are growing, becoming more prevalent in outpatient treatment, and are anticipated to present opportunities for the eHealth market.

Increased innovations and technological advancements

Businesses in the eHealth market are enhancing the benefits of deep medical learning to anticipate individuals' risks of dementia and Parkinson's. Numerous businesses are gaining expertise in artificial medical intelligence (AI) that predicts likely patient disease patterns. Several researchers have launched research projects using medical AI to examine non-invasive interconnections between brain areas to identify mental diseases in patients at very early stages. Hence, IT businesses should engage with academics and innovators to minimize the necessity for surgical treatments in the early diagnosis of mental diseases. Possible innovations and technological advancements are predicted to support the growth of the eHealth market in the upcoming years.

Market Restraining Factor

Medical practitioners' reluctance to accept innovative eHealth solutions

Physicians are restricting to adopt these systems because of their complexity & lack of user-friendliness in modern healthcare IT systems. Several doctors believe that using healthcare Technology solutions hinders their ability to communicate with patients. Also, in remote locations, issues including a lack of internet technology and a dearth of professionals accessible to offer technical assistance are to blame for doctors' reluctance to utilize HCIT solutions. All of these elements are having a negative impact on how quickly healthcare businesses adopt eHealth technologies.

Product Outlook

Based on product, the eHealth market is segmented into medical apps, electronic health records (HER), telehealth, vendor neutral archive (VNA) & picture archiving & communications systems (PACS), laboratory information systems (LIS), prescribing solutions, clinical decision support systems (CDSS), Pharmacy Information Systems, and others. In 2021, the medical apps segment held the highest revenue share in the eHealth market. This is ascribed to an increase in the demand for high-quality healthcare products and services, an increase in the acceptance of mHealth practices, a surge in need for better patient safety and care, and a rise in government efforts to advance e-health. Also, the rapid uptake of tablets, smartphones, and other handheld devices is fueling the market's expansion.

End User Outlook

On the basis of end-user, the eHealth market is divided into healthcare providers, payers, healthcare consumers and others. The healthcare consumer segment covered a considerable revenue share in the eHealth market in 2021. The expansion of this segment may be attributed to a variety of developments, including the expansion of healthcare infrastructure in places like Asia-Pacific and the expansion of demands for healthcare cost-cutting measures. In addition, the segment's growth is further supported by the rise in chronic sickness cases and the demand for hospice care and round-the-clock monitoring systems.
