Medical Device Connectivity Market Is Expected To Grow Exponentially By Rapid Advancement In Telehealth And Telemedicine Infrastructure

The medical device connectivity market involves connecting medical devices such as MRI machines, CT scanners, and monitoring equipment to hospitals’ electronic health records (EHR) systems, allowing clinicians to access patient data seamlessly. Medical device connectivity helps in improving clinician workflow efficiency, enhancing patient safety and experience through real-time access to clinical information at the point of care.

The global Medical Device Connectivity Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.6 Billion in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR Of 14% over the forecast period 2024-2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics

Rapid advancement in telehealth and telemedicine infrastructure: The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the critical need for telehealth and telemedicine services globally. This stimulated massive investments in telehealth infrastructure development. For instance, in May 2020, the U.S. government allocated $200 million to support rural healthcare programs and telehealth services under the CARES Act. Rapid digitalization of healthcare with more patients and providers adopting virtual care is expected to drive the integration of medical devices with digital platforms and fuel the medical device connectivity market growth over the forecast period.

Growing need for centralized monitoring of high-acuity patients: The growing geriatric population susceptible to chronic diseases is increasing the prevalence of patients requiring continuous monitoring in long-term care facilities and at home. Medical device connectivity allows continuous transmission of patient health data to clinicians for remote monitoring. This reduces hospital readmissions and improves patient outcomes. The need for centralized monitoring of high-risk patients is expected to propel the medical device connectivity market expansion during the forecast period.
