An increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes and arthritis and rising healthcare expenditure are expected to drive the global remote patient monitoring devices market.
Remote patient monitoring is a type of healthcare service that allows for a patient to use a medical device to monitor and perform a routine test and send the result of the test in real time, to healthcare professionals. In line with the recent trend of patients desiring home care, remote patient monitoring devices have been developed to eliminate the need for frequent visits to hospitals. Thus, remote patient monitoring devices allow for a more customized treatment or post treatment plan.
