Telemedicine Device Market (virtual care medical devices market) Introduction

As mentioned above, telemedicine medical devices are connected medical devices that are used with a telemedicine set up like a cart, case, tablet, kiosk or a wall mounted set up. Some of the most important devices in this category are:

  • Telemedicine Digital Vital Signs Monitor: This is a device that measures the vital signs like SpO2, Pulse Rate, temperature and blood pressure. This is most basic requirement for any telemedicine set up and hence, these devices are in very high demand. The cost of a telemedicine digital vital signs monitor is between $(700 to 1,500).
  • Telemedicine Stethoscopes: Telemedicine stethoscopes are another most important telemedicine device used by remote healthcare practitioner to listen live heart and lung sounds in real time, from remote location. The cost of a telemedicine stethoscope is between $(400 to 1,200).
  • Telemedicine Exam Camera: This is a very important equipment used for general medical examination and close-up skin inspections. These are video cameras systems that include high quality lend and LEDs. The camera can also be used with other lens types like otoscope & dermatoscope. In general, cost of a telemedicine exam camera, including otoscope & dermatoscope lens, is between $(1,500 to 5,500).

Apart from this, there are other devices like ECG devices, ultrasound devices, spirometers, colposcope, ophthalmoscope and others. The report covers market analysis, price trends and detailed analysis on each of these devices across regions and countries.

The biggest advantage of telemedicine devices is that these are connected devices and are capable of transmitting patient data in real time to the clinician. Hence, a real time patient examination is possible through these devices just like a face to face examination. For example, a telemedicine stethoscope transmits live patient heart and lung sounds to the doctor. Similarly, a telemedicine ECG device streams ECG data from the patient to the clinician.

Telemedicine Devices Market Trends

Telemedicine devices are not a new thing and these have been in the market for quite some time. However, the Covid 19 pandemic has contributed massively to the rise in the popularity of these devices in the recent past. In the year 2020, the demand for telemedicine services increased by around 60 times in the United States in comparison to 2019, and a similar trend was observed in the Western Europe and some other countries of the world. As the pandemic has subsided, this steep growth trend has stabilized, however, there has been a cultural shift in the delivery patterns and technological adoption.

Service providers have reimagined how virtual care can be an integral part of their organization. Hospitals and healthcare systems not only in the developed markets but across the world have started embracing telehealth in their organizational framework.

  • Location and time independent healthcare: Clinicians have realized that telemedicine infrastructure has the capability to revolutionize the healthcare industry by allowing them to cater to multiple locations at the same time irrespective of their physical presence. Modern, connected telemedicine equipment are capable of patient diagnosis even in the most critical situations like heart failure and critical traumatic injuries.
  • Time and cost savings: Telemedicine is helping hospitals as well as patients to save costs and time. American Journal of Emergency Medicine states that there is a saving of $(19 to 121) on each telemedicine visit. This is just because virtual visits are charged relatively lesser in comparison to actual face to face visit. Moreover, there are additional savings such as transportation costs etc. In coming years, this technology will expand to emerging economies where there are affordability concerns related to healthcare.
  • Healthcare in remote locations: There are remote locations which lack proper healthcare quality. Telemedicine is the most effective way to deliver healthcare services in such locations. Even large service providers can expand their presence quickly in outskirts and remote locations by the use of telehealth technologies. In the United States, around 15% of the population lives in rural areas. In many emerging economies, the share of rural population is as high as 60%. Hospital chains can open their virtual care centers in targeted rural areas and effectively use telemedicine carts and case along with connected telemedicine devices to cater to the healthcare needs of these people.

“Telemedicine technology is a boon for patients as well as clinicians/healthcare service provider. On one hand, while the patients have access to the best healthcare professionals from their home, clinicians have the opportunity to expand their presence, reach out to a broader target audience and also their time and effort”
