Abstract

6th World Congress on Internal Medicine and Primary Care

The global market for telemedicine is expected to
surpass US$ 103 Billion by 2026. Telemedicine services
are used in several medical areas, such as dermatology,
gynecology, cardiology, neurology, diabetes control,
psychiatry, primary healthcare, and others. The
deployment of telemedicine services has significantly
changed the healthcare services, due to various
technological innovation in the field of medical device
and services. The growing geriatric population coupled
with rising prevalence of chronic diseases, the dearth of
healthcare professionals worldwide, improvements in
telecommunication infrastructure, and need for
affordable treatment options due to rising healthcare
costs are some of the factors expected to propel the
growth of telemedicine market in the coming years.
Some of the key factors restricting the growth of
telemedicine market include lack of skilled and trained
professionals in the remote areas, and privacy and
security concern.
