Many patients, doctors, and government bodies increasingly adopt telehealth & telemedicine. Telehealth facilitates access to healthcare through specific applications & video consultations and enables communication between patients & doctors in remote locations, eliminating the need to visit hospitals or clinics. Video consultations are increasing, as they enable patients to avail medical services from their medical professional over the phone, which helps avoid unnecessary doctor visits and the process of booking appointments & commuting, thereby reducing unnecessary costs. For instance, in May 2023, Telstra Health launched Australia's first Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) native virtual care solution-Virtual Health Platform-to enhance overall clinical efficiency.

Furthermore, rising government initiatives to promote digital health solutions and high adoption of advanced technology for remote health management are also anticipated to accelerate market growth in APAC. For instance, a collaboration between three government agencies in Thailand led to the developing of an IT system and mobile phone application to connect healthcare services provided by 116 government hospitals. This project has enabled Thai physicians to share medical information online, providing benefits, such as long-distance study in medical sciences, telepathology consultations, telecardiology, and teleradiology. Considering that Thailand has almost 900 government hospitals, the program has ample potential to expand in the coming years.

Several technologically advanced connected medical devices secured approval in recent years. This includes wearable devices, mobile apps, and iPad-based diagnostic tools. The approvals and launch of these technologically advanced devices into the market may aid growth. For instance, in September 2023, Lotte Healthcare, a South Korean company, entered the market by launching its personalized healthcare management platform, Cazzle.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The digital health market is characterized by a high degree of innovation. Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) revolutionizes healthcare delivery by enabling providers to track patients’ health status without physical visits to healthcare facilities. This innovative approach expands access to healthcare services, particularly for individuals in remote areas or with limited mobility. For instance, in June 2023, Kakao Corporation, a South Korean internet company, collaborated with Dexcom to set up a global digital diabetes management service

For instance, in September 2023, Health Innovations, a consortium of practicing medical doctors affiliated with the GP+ cooperative, acquired AskDr, a Singapore-based digital health startup, to enhance patient care and empower individuals to manage their health journeys actively

Different countries or regions have different regulations for digital health technologies. These regulations can impact market access, growth, and compliance. For instance, the Ministry of Public Health regulates health matters in Thailand, including medical devices and digital health activities. In addition, the Thai FDA and its Medical Device Control Division, which enforces the Medical Device Act, are under the Ministry of Public Health. The Ministry of Digital Economy and Society also enforces the PDPA and Cybersecurity Act for digital health. Two regulatory authorities monitor digital health in Thailand

The common service substitute for digital health is traditional in-person healthcare consultations, which involve physical visits to clinics, hospitals, or other healthcare facilities and paper-based medical records & communication, in which patient information can be exchanged through physical documents and face-to-face interactions

Several market players are expanding their business to new countries to strengthen their market position and product portfolio. For instance, in October 2023, Fujitsu, a digital transformation company, collaborated with Global Health Ltd., a digital health solutions company. The collaboration aimed to make available Global Health's complete range of software solutions to 13 countries in the Asia Pacific healthcare industry
