Remote Patient Monitoring Market Overview 2021-2026, Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast

The global remote patient monitoring market reached a value of US$ 964 Million in 2020. Looking forward, the market is expected to exhibit strong growth during the next five years, according to the latest report by IMARC Group.

Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is a healthcare delivery method that uses the latest advances in information technology to gather patient data outside of traditional healthcare settings. It collects a wide range of health data from the point of care, such as weight, blood sugar and oxygen levels, heart rate, and electrocardiograms, which is electronically transferred to health care providers for assessment. These programs allow older and disabled individuals to live at home for longer and avoid moving to nursing facilities. This, in turn, aids in reducing the patientcare cost, number of hospitalizations, readmissions and length of stays in hospitals.

Note: We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Remote Patient Monitoring Market Trends:

The highly infectious nature of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has prompted healthcare providers to utilize RPM services for monitoring patients and improving the quality of care. RPM technology consists of medical devices deployed in the home that transmit vital signs through a data hub, console or set-top box. This helps healthcare providers to free up resources for treating critical and existing patients by providing more timely and efficient care. Besides this, the rapid advancements in wireless technologies and healthcare infrastructure, and the increasing penetration of smartphones has led to a shift from clinic- to patient-centric healthcare models, such as RPM. As a result, the leading players are introducing next-generation chronic disease RPM systems based on mobile phone platforms that would allow automatic wireless transfer of measurements from medical devices, like glucometers, blood pressure monitors and weighing scales.
