U.S. Dominates North America Telemedicine Market

The North America telemedicine market has been leading the global market for the last few years. The shifting interest of patients from hospital treatments to home-based treatments in order to curb healthcare expenditure is the prime factor fuelling the growth of the telemedicine market in North America. The rising preference of proactive monitoring over conventional treatments is also boosting the demand for telemedicine significantly in this regional market.

The U.S. dominates the telemedicine market in North America at present and is projected to retain its leadership in the forthcoming years. The rising geriatric population, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, growing adoption of home-based devices, technical developments in home use applications, increasing awareness regarding healthcare, and proper reimbursement scenario in the nation is stimulating the U.S. telemedicine market substantially.

Canada is also exhibiting steady growth in the North America telemedicine market. The increasing cost of healthcare and the rising incidence of chronic diseases have augmented the demand for telemedicine in the country, making telemedicine a lucrative market for various companies to invest in. However, the reduction in Medicare payments to home-based healthcare agencies and the risk to the safety of telemedicine professionals are hampering the growth of this market in Canada to a great extent.

Apria Healthcare Group, Gentiva Health Service Inc., Amdisys, Inc., Alere Inc., Baxter Int. Inc., B. Braun Melsungen AG, Fresenius Se & Co KGAa, GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, and Roche Holdings are the major telemedicine providers in North America.
