Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) and care is a healthcare delivery model that allows healthcare providers to monitor patients remotely, using various technological devices and communication tools, without the need for face-to-face visits. This approach enables healthcare providers to deliver care and track patient health data from a distance, often in real time.
RPM typically involves the use of sensors-enabled wearable devices and other technological devices that can track a patient's vital signs, medication adherence, physical activity, and other health-related information. The collected data is then transmitted to healthcare providers who can analyze the information and take appropriate action, such as adjusting medication dosages, providing guidance on lifestyle changes, or scheduling follow-up appointments.
Middle East and Africa Remote Patient Monitoring and Care Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail below:
- Increasing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases
The market is expanding due to various causes, including the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases. Chronic diseases are non-communicable illnesses that last long and necessitate continuing medical care and management.
According to the World Health Organization, chronic diseases account for nearly 70% of all deaths worldwide, with cardiovascular disease being the primary cause. The rising prevalence of chronic diseases is increasing due to many variables, including an aging population, sedentary lifestyles, poor nutrition, and environmental factors. RPM and care can help healthcare providers to manage chronic diseases more efficiently and effectively.
As a result of the sedentary lifestyle of people, the prevalence of lifestyle-associated disorders such as hypertension and diabetes witnessed a rise. Thus, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases with the growing integration of healthcare data with portable devices is expected to demand proper health management, leading to the anticipated increasing demand for RPM and care in the market in the forecast period.
- Strict Regulatory Framework
Regulatory bodies play a critical role in ensuring that remote patient monitoring technologies meet safety and quality standards and protect patient privacy. However, regulatory compliance can be a significant barrier to entry for many companies and may slow down the adoption of remote patient monitoring technologies.
The medical device regulations hold significant responsibility for safeguarding the health of the people in the medical device industry itself. The regulations require manufacturers to inculcate quality systems (based on internationally accepted standards for quality systems) into the design process for class III and IV devices. They also require manufacturers to incorporate them into the manufacturing process for class II, III, and IV devices.
Along with such strict regulations of medical devices, it has also been reported that Health Canada’s decision related to medical device applications is not timely. It involves reviewing the submission of scientific evidence by manufacturers to ensure the efficacy of various devices.
This suggests that such a tedious procedure led to the development of other technologically advanced devices and hence, poses a big challenge in front of device manufacturers in submitting the approval documentation.
The regulations imposed would delay the supply of the instrumentation and long-time approval for the devices. This factor is expected to act as a restraint for market growth.
Strategic Initiatives by Market Players
The strategic initiatives taken by the key market players have helped in the rise in technologies and advancements in remote patient monitoring products and devices. They are taking initiatives such as product launches, collaborations, mergers, and acquisitions among others, which is expected to create more opportunities for market growth.
Healthcare product suppliers have a huge opportunity to work with new technology firms to ensure the industry's continued growth, creativity, and viability.
To discover and develop advanced remote monitoring facilities, companies are launching new initiatives and collaborating with other key players to deliver more reliable results and services.
These strategic initiatives such as product launches, approvals, acquisitions, and mergers done by major companies in the market have opened up an opportunity for companies in various regions. This strategy is allowing the companies to strengthen their footprints in the market. Therefore, it is predicted that strategic initiative is expected to provide an opportunity for market growth.
- Lack of Skilled Professionals
Remote patient monitoring requires a range of professionals with specialized knowledge and expertise, including clinicians, technicians, and data analysts.
Clinicians are responsible for monitoring patient's health remotely and interpreting the data collected by remote patient monitoring devices.
Moreover, technicians are responsible for installing, maintaining, and troubleshooting remote patient monitoring devices. Data analysts are responsible for analyzing the data collected by remote patient monitoring devices and providing insights to healthcare providers. However, there is currently a shortage of data analysts, clinicians, and technicians with the necessary skills and experience to provide meaningful insights from remote patient monitoring data.
The lack of skilled professionals can also limit the adoption of RPM technologies and limit their potential to improve healthcare outcomes. Without skilled professionals, healthcare providers may struggle to interpret patient data and provide appropriate interventions, limiting the effectiveness of RPM in improving patient outcomes. Thus, the lack of skilled professionals is a significant factor expected to pose a challenge to market growth.
- In January 2023, Masimo and Philips announced an expansion of their partnership to augment patient monitoring capabilities in home telehealth applications with the Masimo W1 advanced health tracking watch. This collaboration extension would help the company in remote patient monitoring product portfolio expansion.
- In December 2022, Masimo announced the full market release of the Hydration Index (Hi) for the Masimo W1 watch. The Masimo W1, an advanced health-tracking wearable, is the first watch to offer accurate, continuous pulse oximetry measurements and insightful health data, from the leader in hospital pulse oximetry. This product upgradation would help the company in product business expansion.
