Telemedicine technology potentially targets the underserved, the elderly and their caregivers, persons with chronic diseases, employees and dependents, and fitness-oriented individuals. The adoption of telemedicine is increasing worldwide. This can be attributed to its ability to improve quality of care, access patients in rural communities, reduce hospital admissions and readmissions, enhance patient engagement and improve time management and convenience. Telemedicine also addresses the physician shortage globally. Additionally, the growing prevalence of chronic diseases, growing elderly population, and increasing healthcare costs are factors driving this market. Currently, mHealth (mobile health) is the largest application of telemedicine. With the wide variety of mobile health apps available in the market and new mobile medical devices that are consumer-friendly, patients are now dependent on technology to monitor and track their health.

On another hand, the lack of reimbursement, regulatory issues, lack of physician knowledge and acceptance are some of the factors restraining the growth of the telemedicine market.

North America dominates the global telemedicine market with a majority of the market share. The use of telemedicine programs is integrated into more than half of all U.S. hospitals, as well as into speciality departments, home health agencies, private physician offices, homes and workplaces. However, the Asia-Pacific market is slated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
