The supportive environment for digital healthcare services and improved internet connectivity to deliver remote healthcare services using digital routes are anticipated to drive the market growth over the forecast years. In addition, growing smartphone adoption in the U.S. has also driven manufacturers to invest and capitalize on their growth opportunities in the digital health industry.

U.S. Digital Health Market size, by technology, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

For instance, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, in 2021, invested USD 73 million to collect COVID-19 data and strengthen the public health IT workforce in the underrepresented communities. In addition, a significant demand has been observed for telemedicine and telehealth over the past couple of years by the healthcare fraternity. The service providers and developers of the market are constantly working to develop web-hosted and cloud-based platforms to seamlessly deliver virtual care services to enhance patient care in remote locations. The demand for video consultations is increasing as they minimize the need for face-to-face visits and commuting to the healthcare facility. These smartphone applications are providing benefits to the patients to store their healthcare information, track their fitness & health records, and can connect to a doctor anytime throughout the treatment process. Furthermore, the increased awareness regarding the benefits of adopting remote digital services and health & fitness apps, specifically during the COVID-19 pandemic, supported the market growth. For instance, as per the Sensor Tower report, health and fitness apps installations have been increased by 22% from 332 million in 2019 to 405 million in 2020 in the U.S. Several government initiatives to improve digital health platforms and encourage app developers and healthcare providers for the development of better remote healthcare solutions will also drive the market.

This, in turn, reduces the costs of availing healthcare. Furthermore, the continuous lockdowns and travel bans due to the COVID-19 pandemic also contributed to the high adoption of telehealth services. For instance, the CivicScience survey reported that the telemedicine adoption rate has continuously increased from 11% in February 2020 to 28% in April 2020 and 32% and 35% in June 2020 and July 2020 respectively in the U.S due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the digital technology giants present in the U.S., such as Google, IBM, and Apple, are continuously focusing on the development of solutions to improve the virtual healthcare experience with enhanced data security features, which is also supporting the market growth.

The growing number of mobile subscriptions and rising smartphone penetration are expected to bolster the market growth over the coming years. According to an eMarketer report, the smartphone penetration has increased to 88% in 2021 from 76% in 2016. The increasing smartphone adoption is also driving the mHealth applications and service usage in the country. In addition, a rise in the development of mHealth apps and their easy availability are also supporting the market growth. According to eMarketer, about 87.4 million consumers use health and fitness apps in the country. The availability of low-cost or free mobile health applications also drives the adoption of digital healthcare.

The growing adoption of mHealth apps by healthcare providers to improve the quality of care through real-time patient engagement is also supporting market growth. For example, Glooko, Inc., provides calorie and glucose monitoring services to the patient for the remote management of chronic disorders. As per the data published by OrthoLive, in 2019, 93% of healthcare professionals believed that mobile health applications can improve patients’ health. Moreover, the increasing geriatric population, rising prevalence of chronic disorders, and the growing trend of preventive healthcare have driven several initiatives to be undertaken by the government. The growing COVID-19 disease cases have attracted the market players to invest in digital health solutions and virtual care.

For instance, according to the report of Rock Health a full-service seed fund, the investments in digital health have increased by 72% in 2020 from 2018. In addition, the growing industrial developmental activities, such as acquisitions and mergers, in the digital healthcare sector are also anticipated to accelerate the market growth. For instance, the number of acquisitions and mergers has been increased to 145 in 2020 from 113 in 2019. One of the major mergers in the telehealth industry was the merger of Livongo Health and Teladoc in 2020 worth USD 18.5 billion. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is creating multiple challenges for the healthcare delivery systems.

Increasing industry consolidation activities by the key players, such as acquisition, collaboration, and merger, also supported the market growth during the COVID-19 period. For instance, in October 2020, Teladoc Health completed the merger with Livongo USD 18.5 billion

The growing adoption of virtual healthcare platforms and increasing promotion by the government to improvise remote patient healthcare services are also expected to propel the market growth over the coming years. For instance, the U.S. FDA, in September 2020, launched a Digital Health Center of Excellence for the advancement of various digital health technologies, such as wearables, mHealth devices, and software


The reduction of in-person consultations, travel restrictions, and lockdowns imposed by the government provided the much-needed boost to the adoption of virtual care solutions and digital health platforms. Primary care facilities and outpatient hospitals are two promising areas that can be delivered by digital health services, which is anticipated to boost the market growth. Furthermore, social distancing norms led to a transition of virtual fitness from the traditional workout in gyms, which increased the health and fitness apps demand. The growing government investments to improvise healthcare IT infrastructure and promote remote healthcare services are also anticipated to fuel the market growth.
