U.S. pediatric home healthcare market size, by service, 2018 - 2028 (USD Billion)

Life-sustaining pediatric home healthcare services in a comfortable environment have reduced hospital stays for infants with complex cardiac, neurological, and respiratory disorders. According to the National Survey of Children with Special Healthcare Needs, in 2016, one in every five children aged 5 to 19 requires special medical care. While the prevalence of Children with Special Healthcare Needs (CSHCN) is increasing, availability of pediatric home healthcare services improves the quality of life for these children and radically reduce their medical expense.

Furthermore, an increase in the life expectancy of premature babies due to improved medical interventions has created the demand for in-home pediatric care services. Infants born prematurely and weighing less than 1 pound usually suffer from several chronic conditions, requiring extra care from an early stage. Moreover, assistive devices and equipment such as ventilators, CPAP, gastric tubes, nebulizers, and apnea monitors have allowed infants with complex diseases to be discharged from neonatal intensive care units and continue medical assistance with pediatric nursing care at home.

The rising prevalence of chronic conditions such as cerebral palsy, congenital heart diseases, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, epilepsy, and cancer in pediatric pollution worldwide has created opportunities for key players to invest in the market. According to 2009-10 NS-CSHCN, around 5.6 million children in the U.S. required at least 5 hours of in-home medical care. Parents spend around 1.5 billion hours a year taking care of their children, which leads to an economic burden of USD 3,200 for each family.

Favorable insurance policies aid the rising demand for pediatric healthcare services. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, home healthcare services for children such as nursing care, primary care, personal care assistance, and hospice care are covered under Medicaid. The majority of pediatric expenditure is covered by Medicaid and the remaining is covered by private insurance coverage. For instance, DJK HOME HEALTHCARE LLC- a Texas-based agency-offers various programs waivered by Medicaid such as STAR Kids, STAR Health, Respite, Community Living Assistance and Support Services (CLASS), and CSHCN.

Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic had a mixed impact on the market for pediatric home healthcare. As the pediatric home healthcare market consists of products and services, both have different effects. COVID-19 pandemic has a positive impact on pediatric home healthcare services as healthcare facility is the best solution to meet the demands of medical treatment in the home itself at the same time the home healthcare minimize the COVID-19 pandemic by limiting the spread of the virus.

Service Insights

The rehabilitation therapy services segment dominated the market for pediatric home healthcare and held the revenue share close to 60.0% in 2020. The segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period.

The majority of service providers are offering various rehabilitation therapies such as physical, occupational, and speech therapies for kids suffering from autism, ADD/ADHD, cerebral palsy, and muscular atrophy.

The skilled nursing services segment is also growing due to the increase in the number of children suffering from complex medical conditions such as cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, asthma, and epilepsy. Skilled nursing services have significantly reduced the inpatient cost of children with medical complexities. According to a study published in May 2018, the average cost of skilled nursing services amounts to USD 450 per day, whereas inpatient care amounts to USD 3,000 per day. Pediatric home care providers are facing major challenges in marinating their nursing staff to provide quality care for children with special healthcare needs.
