U.S. Telemedicine Market Size

U.S. Telemedicine Market size was valued at more than USD 35 billion in 2022. Driven by the soaring number of chronically ill patients, the industry is estimated to grow at a 12.5% CAGR from 2023 to 2032.

U.S. Telemedicine Market

The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases is anticipated to foster market growth. A strong prevalence of these illnesses, such as cancer, diabetes, and heart diseases, among others, due to the higher adoption of unhealthy habits and sedentary lifestyles viz., consuming alcohol and smoking cigarettes is accelerating the telemedicine industry penetration in the U.S.

Moreover, favorable government initiatives towards the improvement of healthcare systems are also escalating the demand for telemedicine in the region. For instance, in March 2020, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act's policies were made public by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Administrator (HIPAA). According to this policy, patients are entitled to contact any doctor throughout the pandemic using their smartphones and platforms. Such regulatory changes have increased the use of telemedicine, which is foreseen to boost market expansion.

Increasing data thefts and breaches may restrain U.S. telemedicine market progression

Security risks over confidential patient data may limit industry expansion. Platforms, including electronic prescriptions, electronic health records, and fitness or medical applications, among others, must be integrated into telemedicine systems. Data breaches give unauthorized access to private data, including medical records, personal information, prescription information, insurance IDs, and addresses. Therefore, data threats and breaches associated with telemedicine services are impeding market expansion. Nevertheless, ongoing technological advancements are likely to aid in combatting these issues.
