COVID-19 Impact on Digital Transformation in Healthcare Market
COVID-19 is disrupting businesses and industries nationwide, and somewhat disproportionately healthcare. This dire situation ushered in a massive digital transformation of the healthcare industry to reduce operational costs, save time for treatments, and ultimately improve care quality. Healthcare advancement is considered as a phased evolution, the pandemic only accelerated the transformation and saw pioneering research in medical science.
For instance, telehealth software (or remote patient monitoring) became a norm in 2020 as it eliminated the need for physical human interactions. This became the most significant advantage during the COVID-19 crisis. Additionally, telehealth software offered healthcare professionals a wider geographical reach, especially where medical resources are limited.
Hence, the digital transformation in healthcare market is estimated to grow around 10% to 12% Y-o-Y from 2019 to 2021.
Rapid Adoption of Mobility Services and Healthcare Mobile Apps to Become a Key Trend
Healthcare organizations are increasingly inclined towards mobile-based communication and encouraging staff to bring their own device for work-related purposes, which in turn, reduces the cost associated with purchase of healthcare communication devices. This is expected to increase the demand for mobility services. In addition, healthcare mobility services enable healthcare service organizations to access patient data from anywhere and share their insights with patients in real time.
Healthcare organizations around the world are focused on providing custom-made healthcare apps for wearable fitness and medical devices. Such applications enable patients to access healthcare information via mobile and devices. This, in turn, is expected to fuel the market growth in the near future.
