Tele-consultation market is opening up in the EU-4 region with healthcare policies favoring telemedicine, as well as evolving reimbursement scenario. This has led to several companies providing solutions including tele-consultations, tele-diagnosis, tele-expertise, tele-monitoring, tele-surveillance and tele-assistance. These companies are offering solutions in partnership with healthcare providers, insurers and other organizations (B2B) as well as direct-to-consumer (B2C) and the government (B2G).
Tele-consultations have moved beyond just providing video consultations to exploring opportunities to offer value-added services including tele-diagnosis, tele-expertise, tele-monitoring, tele-surveillance and tele-assistance. There is significant potential to offer tele-triage solutions that enable increased outcomes especially as healthcare systems are transitioning to value-based care. Hence, tele-consultation service has crossed an inflection point and is expected to see rapid growth in the short to medium term. The tele-consultation market is attracting new entrants from local start-ups to international players.
There is a need for tele-consultations to strategically fit into the patient journey. Companies with a clear value proposition on how to augment patient journey and contribution to overall outcomes will fare well in this market. Furthermore, there are some market challenges including patient and physician resistance to adoption, fragmented reimbursements for services and the need for collaboration with the right partners (healthcare insurance, providers etc.).
