Healthcare Tele-Consultation Services Market By Mode Of Access (Voice Calls, Video Calls, Kiosks) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2016 - 2024

Healthcare tele-consultation services refers to virtual consultation with doctors instead of a physical visit to the hospital or the physician’s office. Consumers can get in touch with a medical professional through various modes of communication including telephone call, video call or a visit to a medical kiosk located at various locations. Tele-consultation services have enabled healthcare providers to reduce costs, especially in the developed countries where a personal visit to the hospital costs significantly high. In case of any non-emergency situations, consumers can simply log onto the tele-consultation service provider’s platform or a dial onto a toll-free number to get in touch with a physician. The medical professional analyzes the medical condition of the patient and advices accordingly. In addition, the physician can directly send medical prescription to the preferred pharmacist. Apart from low costs, tele-consultation services also offers ease of access to medical professionals. Consumers can quickly get a medical opinion from the comfort of the home or convenience of their work place. Thereby, tele-consultation services have gained immense popularity in the recent years.

One of the major driving factors in the global tele-consultation services market is the increasing healthcare costs in the developed countries. Tele-consultation services have enabled healthcare providers to effectively cater to non-emergency cases at significantly lower costs. In addition, with reduced number of patients at the hospitals and emergency rooms, physicians can focus on critical acute cases at the hospitals. Another factor fueling the growth in the tele-consultation services market is the lack of access to healthcare services in various rural and remote areas. Residents of such remote locations in both developed and developing countries face immense challenges in receiving timely healthcare services. Tele-consultation services have offered a viable solution for healthcare providers and local governments to cater to the remote population. With multiple benefits for various stakeholders in the healthcare industry, the tele-consultation services market is expected to witness immense growth across the world during the forecast period.
