Artificial intelligence (AI)-led telemedicine services are part of ongoing efforts to improve healthcare services. This aspect is expected to disrupt the entire value chain of the patient care delivery system and clinical practice by offering new models of support and care. AI-led telemedicine is utilized to lessen hospital wait times, and predictive analytics can help discover specialists quicker for telemedicine patients. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), AI in telemedicine is precisely augmenting innovations in multiple areas, such as teleradiology, telepathology, and teledermatology.

Deployment Insights

The on-premise segment held a larger market share of 52.8% in 2022. Healthcare organizations have built their IT infrastructure to meet their growing data demand. Traditionally, these organizations were reluctant to adopt cloud-based deployment and have favored on-premise, as IT administrators have better control over physical data centers. However, the demand for on-premise solutions will decline over the forecast period due to the high maintenance costs associated with them.

Cloud-based storage choices offer a scalable and flexible environment at a reduced cost compared to on-premise deployments, appealing to covered entities. The growing number of remotely located teams that require a cloud-based platform to share, collaborate, and communicate with all locations seamlessly is expected to fuel the segment's growth over the next few years. Cloud also enables healthcare employees to access collaborative tools via their smartphone, giving them the flexibility to access the platform remotely, driving the adoption of cloud-based software. It has also enriched the feature of recording events and allowing others to review the proceedings later.

The hosted deployment segment is estimated to exhibit the fastest CAGR of 19.7% over the forecast period. Hosted solutions often offer a more cost-effective approach for healthcare organizations than maintaining and managing their infrastructure. Instead of investing in expensive hardware and dedicated IT resources, hosted solutions allow healthcare providers to access the services they need through the cloud, which is generally more affordable and scalable.

End-use Insights

The hospitals segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 54.3% in 2022 and is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 19.9% over the forecast period. An increase in COVID-19 cases have made hospitals realize the importance of contactless communication and collaboration. Companies have started offering collaboration solutions to organizations tackling the pandemic at reduced or zero costs. For instance, Microsoft Corporation has offered the United Kingdom National Health Service (NHS) staff to use Microsoft Teams to communicate quickly and efficiently with their colleagues.

Furthermore, it has been reported by the Joint Commission that 70% of medical errors are attributed to communication breakdowns. Hospitals have a complex architectural structure, which creates the need for efficient communication and coordination. Integrating clinical mobility in the hospital ecosystem has emerged as an added advantage to operational efficiency. Moreover, it has been observed that tech-savvy patients find comfort in technology, bring their data with them, & are willing to share electronic health metrics with healthcare providers.

The clinical labs segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period in the clinical communication & collaboration market. Clinical labs generate a vast amount of data that needs to be integrated into electronic health record (EHR) systems. CC&C solutions can facilitate the integration of lab results and other relevant data into EHRs, making it easier for healthcare providers to access and review patient information in one centralized location.

Component Insights

The solution segment dominated the market with the highest revenue share of 61.9% in 2022. CC&C solutions facilitate real-time data sharing, capture alarms, and notifications, and optimize care transitions that contribute more toward patient safety and satisfaction. Clinical communication and collaboration systems take advantage of the patient data, bed management systems, and telemetry provided by location to provide immediate responses during crisis management.

Moreover, during the COVID-19 pandemic period, companies such as Cerner Corporation designed solutions aimed at helping healthcare organizations effectively monitor and screen patient populations for potential cases of the virus. The company developed COVID-19-specific updates for clients that alerted providers when a patient was at risk, so clinicians could initiate appropriate isolation procedures.

Solution providers integrate IoT with collaboration solutions to improve operational efficiency and patient care. The healthcare IoT environment configures wellness applications, wearables, beacons, smart devices, and other connected devices to help patients adhere to their care programs and facilitate analytics. Through mobile phones and Bluetooth beacons, hospitals help patients and visitors navigate their way around large campuses. For instance, a wayfinding application from Boston Children’s Hospital called MyWay provides turn-by-turn directions for its 12-building healthcare campus.
