Growing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases Drives Patient Engagement Solutions Market

Patient engagement solutions have become the need of the hour as the global population is experiencing an unfortunate rise in the incidence of chronic diseases. The prevalence of chronic diseases can be blamed on stressful lifestyles, poor habits, genetic predisposition, the growing pool of the aging population, and lack of development in several countries around the world. In times when deteriorating health conditions have to be monitored to contain epidemics and save lives, patient engagement solutions are proving their mettle by motivating patients to track their own health status. These advanced tools allow the patients to improve their health conditions by taking proper care in an organized fashion. The biggest advantage of patient engagement solutions is that they reduce the chances of re-admissions of patients in hospitals, thereby mitigating the financial burden on the payers.
