Product Insights

On the basis of product, mHealth dominated the smart healthcare market with around 47.0% revenue share in 2019. The dominance is attributed to high internet usage, smartphones, and the adoption of mHealth apps.

RFID technology help to identify issues in the workflow of hospitals especially to move patients in and out quickly and more efficiently. Moreover, RFID in Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) also helps to track newborn babies. Thus, owing to the aforementioned reasons the segment is likely to grow during the forecast period.

Telemedicine accounted for the second-fastest-growing segment in the market for smart healthcare. In the wake of the on-going COVID-19 outbreak, it is anticipated to boost the adoption and usage of telemedicine by healthcare professionals to connect effectively with their patients. Owing to social distancing globally, virtual care delivery is stepping up as an effective solution for secure and superior communication. Furthermore, companies are collaborating with hospitals to monitor COVID-19 patients. For instance, in March 2020, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) launched a 24/7 Telemedicine Hub, CoNTeC. Itis a real-time telemedicine hub aimed to assist physicians to treat patients.
