Global Remote Patient Monitoring Market size was $703 million in 2015 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 17.0% to reach $2,130 million by 2022. Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is a technology used to collect medical and health-related data from individuals at one location and electronically transmit it to a healthcare provider at another location. RPM is used to remotely monitor and analyze physiological parameters such as blood oxygen levels, vital signs, blood pressure, heart rate, and blood sugar, which improves the quality of care, quality of life, and allows early prediction of aggravations and exacerbations. This reduces the number of emergency department visits, and duration of hospitalization. This is attributed to the large undiagnosed patient population, improving access to healthcare systems, and a high risk of developing chronic disease due to rapid urbanization. In addition, the increase in incidences of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and COPD, are responsible for the high growth rate.
RPM is an innovative care delivery model that securely transmits patients data to healthcare teams, and alerts the providers about the early signs of clinical deterioration, and thus creates opportunities for timely intervention. It allows hospital and healthcare systems to improve and ensure compliance with post-discharge plans. This is because the doctor has access to patients vitals outside the hospital premises. They identify any potential health problems using the historical track records and time-based monitoring, and intervene before they cause any emergency. This reduces readmissions and prevents avoidable hospitalizations. Moreover, these technologies decrease a number of unnecessary trips to the doctors office by automatically updating the patients vital sign database at regular intervals and reduce travel-related expenses. These factors are necessary to receive quality medical care and drive the RPM market growth. However, unfavorable reimbursement policies and limited awareness about the RPM devices restrains the market growth.

The congestive heart failure (CHF) is the highest revenue-generating segment in this market owing to the high-risk and life-threatening consequences associated with heart failure, which can be avoided using RPM technologies. In addition, the increase in geriatric population that leads to increase in incidences of age-related heart problems will further drive the market growth. Whereas, diabetes would account for the fastest growing segment owing to the increase in incidence of diabetes, presence of well-established smart glucose monitoring technologies in the market and rise in adoption by end users. The diabetes segment would exhibit significant growth in the Asia-Pacific and LAMEA, supplemented by the increase in awareness and adoption among end users.
According to WHO, the leading causes of deaths in 2012 were: cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases, including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and diabetes. These are the major four non-communicable diseases (NCDs) which were responsible for 82% of the deaths worldwide. Remote health monitoring technologies focus on serious, chronic conditions, such as congestive heart failure (CHF), pulmonary fibrosis, and diabetes, as they tend to result in repeated hospitalization.
