Patient telemonitoring system is a wireless system that monitors remote patients outside of the standard clinical settings. It helps the doctors to monitor parameters such as ECG, blood pressure in real time by using sensors. Due to the healthcare facilities provided at home, early detection of any chronic disease reduces number of emergencies during hospitalization and hospital visits. Routine tests and test results to a doctor are done using mobile medical device in real time without any necessity of visiting health care center. This helps chronically ill people to spend more time at home with their families than at hospitals. Hence, counselling of sick people can be done online without waiting for the appointment date.
Patient telemonitoring system provides uninterrupted long term monitoring thereby saving time and reducing healthcare cost. Furthermore, rising adoption of smart and connected medical devices is enabling real-time monitoring in the telemonitoring system, aiding in the growth of this market. However, patient telemarketing system require good broadband connectivity which is difficult to achieve for healthcare centers and hospitals in rural areas. In spite of this, owing to technological developments and growing demand for effortless medication, the impact of this limitation is expected to reduce during the forecast period.
