Remote Video Consultations in Clinical and Non-Clinical Environments: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts
Key technology enablers for growth in the TVC market include better video conferencing technologies, increased penetration of connected devices, and broadband adoption. Simultaneously, several market factors are making the use of TVCs more valuable, including physician shortages, rising healthcare costs, the need to serve aging populations, and the number of people living with chronic diseases. In addition, TVCs lend themselves to a wide range of medical treatments and use cases. Equally important, providers and payers alike are finding quantifiable value in deploying video-based patient monitoring solutions, both in terms of positive patient outcomes and cost savings. However, a variety of barriers remain to broader adoption of TVCs, including the initial high cost of deploying services, particularly in the clinical environment. In addition, not all payers reimburse for services rendered via video conferencing, and TVCs continue to face some resistance by physicians, patients, and regulatory bodies.
