| |SEPTEMBER 202319Survey 2023, 9.3 crore patients have already used the national telemedicine service e-Sanjeevani, which sees over 4 lakh patients each day. The paradigm shift towards this cutting-edge technology has already set an example of how technology can help save millions of lives in the nation. BRIDGING THE GAPIndia is an ideal location for telemedicine owing to its diverse topography, vast population, and challenging medical needs. As a developing nation, we are experiencing population growth and economic expansion, but rising healthcare costs still pose a significant challenge. In this regard, telemedicine offers a way to close the gap between the resources on hand and the expanding demands on the healthcare system. It provides a chance for primary and secondary healthcare systems to work effectively together and reach populations living in underserved areas.In the next two years, telemedicine is likely to become a norm in the remotest areas of the nation. The doctors would be accessible to patients residing in these areas and would be able to test, diagnose, and check histories and symptoms efficiently. The patient will be able to use a wearable cuff to measure their blood pressure, blood oxygen levels, heart rate, and more and share it right away with the doctor. The medicine will be prescribed, and the patient will receive it at their nearest pharmacy. Furthermore, patients will be able to connect with different specialists, including neurologists, cardiologists, psychologists, and more. By eradicating the requirement of travelling long distances, both patients and doctors will save time and money this will aid in forming a robust healthcare system. TOWARDS A HEALTHY FUTUREA growing health-conscious population, encouraging government initiatives, and favourable economic conditions are expected to create lucrative opportunities for segmental expansion over the coming years, significantly boosting the telemedicine market. It has already started to connect the dots in the health system while successfully bridging the gap between the patient and the doctor to function with a singular vision of better public healthcare.As a result, demand for remote patient monitoring will surge. This will further lead to improved patient outcomes and compliance rates. Overall, the growth of telemedicine in India will experience elevated growth in the coming years. According to a report by Insights10, the Indian telemedicine market had a value of $1.10 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 21.2 percent to reach $5.15 billion by 2030. PO
