In pediatric care, using telehealth services is seen as one of the significant steps in recent years. Improving the access and quality of pediatric patients’ telehealth platforms is one of the best solutions. All children deserve quality health care regardless of their financial resources, health conditions, and geographical locations. Despite improvement and enhancement over the past decades, severe to moderate disparities are present in the healthcare segment of the pediatric population. The restrictions in pediatric care, such as geographic maldistribution, & economic factors of primary care pediatricians, limited the availability of children's medical subspecialties. Currently, the pediatric telehealth market platform is a golden solution that provides remote access to deliver pediatric care by stepping out from traditional to advanced technology. Recently the high demand for pediatric telehealth platforms increased mainly in the behavioral health segment. Around 22% of kids aged 3 to 17 suffer from emotional, mental, behavioral, and developmental conditions.

The pediatric telehealth platform significantly changed pediatric care delivery systems. The increasing pediatric population and shortage of pediatricians in most countries are driving the adoption of pediatric telehealth. The applications of telehealth technologies are already seen among primary care pediatricians, pediatric surgical specialists, and pediatric medical subspecialists; this has the potential to change pediatric practices significantly. It has improved pediatricians' efforts and pediatric care access and handled the physician workforce shortage.

Government Authorities Support To Using Remote Care Platforms Such As Telehealth

  • In the U.S., the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) announced the availability of around USD 14.2 million from the authority of the American Rescue Plan for the expansion of pediatric mental health care with the help of the integration of telehealth in primary pediatric care to boost the pediatric telehealth market.
  • In 2021, the U.S. Department HHS announced awarding USD 10.7 million in funding from the American Rescue plan (Biden Administration) to integrate pediatric telehealth services. The NCATS authority of the U.S. funds network to enhance pediatric care in the U.S. In 2022, the NCATS was recently awarded to the team of researchers in SPROUT- Supporting Pediatric Research on Outcomes and Utilization of Telehealth with $3.6 million capital funding.


1. The pediatric telehealth market is revolutionizing the healthcare industry as it minimizes hospital visits, reduces pediatric patient wait time, and hospital infection rate in children, and decreases the physical discomfort caused to patients. Further, with the increasing higher expenditure on healthcare, IT by significant stakeholders in the healthcare industry is contributing to the market growth in recent years. The telehealth market demands increased investments to integrate telecommunications with the healthcare system.
2. Telehealth in the healthcare settings: Due to SARS-COV-2 emergence in March 2020, the acceptance of telehealth services not only increased among patients but also by pediatricians, medical professionals, pediatric caretakers, nurses, and others. National government authorities started implementing new guidelines for pediatric telehealth delivery; regulations for emergency use, healthcare systems, innovations, and new telehealth platforms were made in the pediatric telehealth market.
3. Before the pandemic, the adoption of telehealth among pediatricians was very low compared to during and after the pandemic. From March 2020, pediatricians quickly transitioned to telehealth platforms to facilitate social distancing and maintain access to care. It also reduced the burden on pediatricians and helped them to overcome significant challenges like the shortage of pediatricians. The higher demand for telehealth services was addressed from March 2020 to October 2020. The effectiveness and efficacy of telehealth solutions have consequently facilitated the implementation of telehealth services in many pediatric care systems such as hospitals, childcare centers, and schools.
4. “School-based Telehealth Programs” is a significant factor that constantly drives the pediatric telehealth solution adoption. But in the future, it is expected to increase gradually due to several changes in education systems after the COVID-19 crisis. During the pandemic, the shift in the education services from classroom to digital platforms and digital screens has provided better opportunities. Increased school-based telehealth programs and increasing digital screen adoption by children will increase the sharp intake of telehealth services in the next 3 to 4 years. The key market players can focus on the school-based program for telehealth adoption.
5. In 2020, the massive change accounted in the U.S. for telehealth. As per the HHS report 2021, Medicare visits through telehealth increased around 63 folds, from 840,000 visits in 2019 to 52.7 million in 2020. The significant change in telehealth platform delivery addressed in recent years includes telehealth shifting towards the “Platform-as-a-Service” model. Currently, most healthcare delivery providers are increasingly embracing the broad scenario and choosing to consolidate several telehealth services into a common/single platform, such as platform-as-a-service, which means all telehealth advantages in a single, configurable, and customizable package. Telehealth platform-as-a-service will be the future of healthcare services.
