IDTechEx report examines hardware trends in remote patient monitoring

With healthcare spending increasing worldwide, innovative ways to deliver cost-effective healthcare must be developed. Remote patient monitoring (RPM), referring to the use of technology to measure and transmit physiological data outside of traditional healthcare settings, has emerged as a promising solution for lowering healthcare costs while maintaining a high standard of patient care.

IDTechEx They issued the reportRemote patient monitoring 2023-2033: technologies, markets, and opportunitiesCovers trends, opportunities, and forecasts for the use of connected, wearable medical devices for remote monitoring of patients’ health parameters, including activity, heart rate, blood pressure, heart rhythm, and blood glucose. IDTechEx forecasts the RPM-enabled devices and technologies market to reach $45 billion by year 2033.

Today, RPM technologies and services focus on major chronic conditions that include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and respiratory disease. IDTechEx’s latest research report on the RPM Market covers major technical and business trends in medical devices used to remotely monitor and manage chronic conditions of a patient. These devices extend established technologies such as blood pressure bracelets and pulse oximeters to growing sectors such as electronic skin patches for ambulatory heart monitoring and continuous glucose monitoring. The rise of consumer devices such as smart watches is also covered in health monitoring.
