The hospitals in China have been adopting mobile telehealth systems (MTS) to enable sharing of patient information to clinicians in isolated COVID-19 (coronavirus) wards. Since doctors were unable to retrieve patient information from the hospital intranet, they resorted to mobile telehealth systems without compromising the security of patient information. More number of individuals are using telehealth and telemedicine, since people prefer remote medical services amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
Ongoing developments in mobile technologies are benefitting the proliferation of eHealth programs, thus driving the eHealth market. Telehealth systems are making it possible for healthcare professionals to share information from multiple locations. During the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, IT companies experienced a dramatic increase in the adoption of home telehealth programs. On the other hand, the Union Health Ministry of India released telemedicine guidelines to cater the needs of hard-to-reach populations of rural India. This is anticipated to fuel the growth of the eHealth market during the forecast period.
