Market Consolidation Through Product Enhancements and Acquisitions is Expected to Fuel the Growth of Global Telemedicine Market Growth in Upcoming Years:
The consolidation of the telemedicine industry through the strengthening of product offerings is an emerging trend followed by prime telemedicine companies. Increasing patient population and rising awareness toward technologies, the companies are to expand their manufacturing capabilities.

This factor has led to geographic diversification, therapeutic and development expertise building, enormous capital generation, and steady technical resource availability among the industry giants, which helps them meet the requirement of healthcare facilities and patients suffering from chronic diseases, such as cancer, autoimmune treatment, and blood disorders, dental diseases, so rising demand of mobile health are rising directly. In August 2020, AMD partnered with iTelemed, an Ontario-based company providing virtual healthcare solutions. The partnership is aimed at catering to the unmet healthcare needs of the marginalized populations in Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, in July 2020, Teladoc Health, Inc. acquired InTouch Health, US. This acquisition would Teladoc Health to establish a leading position in the virtual care industry by providing a full range of acuity from chronic care to critical an everyday care. Similarly, in June 2020, Philips launched the Avalon CL Fetal and Maternal Pod & Patch for remote monitoring for the consumers in the US, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore to support fetal and maternal monitoring. In 2020, BioTelemetry acquired the On Demand remote patient monitoring (RPM) and coaching platform operated by Envolve People Care, Inc., a subsidiary of Centene Corporation. This acquisition helps BioTelemetry in expanding its current suite of acute care connected health products and services, focusing specifically on diabetes, hypertension, and chronic heart failure, with the addition of chronic RPM and coaching solutions.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Global Telemedicine Market:
As the number of COVID-19–infected patients increased, population using computers and tablets for telemedicine also increased, which also reduced staff exposure in ambulances and hospitals. Telemedicine has experienced a huge surge in adoption over the past few months, during the coronavirus pandemic. With people locked down at home, it has become the ‘new normal’ way of accessing healthcare. It is expected that demand for these services increased dramatically globally in COVID-19 pandemic, as the shares of one telehealth provider, Teladoc Health Inc., increased almost 50% since the start of 2020. Hospitals and health systems also encouraged people with suspected COVID-19 symptoms to use telehealth services to limit people’s flow to already crowded emergency rooms and doctor surgeries. Therefore, the growing demand for telemedicine during COVID-19 worldwide is likely to boost the growth of the telemedicine market.

Healthcare Fraud and Rising Data Security Concerns is Hampering the Growth of the Global Telemedicine Market Growth:
Healthcare fraud is a critical concern associated with telehealth and telemedicine. Non-eligible or non-listed healthcare providers may conduct incorrect coding and billing for false claims, or they might use physicians’ name and account to collect payments from insurance companies. Healthcare fraud is a fraudulent enterprise carried out by a small number of deceptive health-care providers and organized crime groups. Health insurance fraud, opioid fraud, prescription drug diversion, and medical identity theft are among the key types of healthcare fraud. As per the Global Health Care Anti-Fraud Network, ~US$ 260 billion, i.e., ~6% of the global total health care expenditure is lost to fraud. This amount is almost equal to the GDP of countries such as Finland or Malaysia. Moreover, the tele-apps collect and analyze health data of their customers to improve automated digital services and solutions. Digital enterprises usually possess the right to use the consumer data for commercial and marketing purposes.

Furthermore, there are many legal issues associated with telemedicine. A physician can be held liable for not acting upon a patient’s request for medical attention. If a telemedicine doctor fails to respond to the requests for medical attention and patients suffer further complications, it is possible that a doctor-patient relationship would be deemed to exist and the physician would be held liable. The digital health setups lack clarity regarding whether the physician has a duty to respond to treatment requests or to tell the patient if he or she is unable to support them for whatever reason. Many consumers are likely to be concerned about this situation, as they may be unable to share confidential health details.
