Global Patient Engagement Solutions Market Drivers:

The rising demand for patient-centered healthcare is one of the key factors propelling the patient engagement solutions market growth. The governments of several countries and hospitals have been putting increased focus on delivering patient-centered healthcare over the last few years and the trend is expected to continue further in the coming years. The growing emphasis and adoption of a patient-centered healthcare approach are fuelling the usage of patient engagement technologies and solutions. Using patient engagement solutions, patients can communicate with their healthcare providers and patients can share health information with healthcare providers and patients can also involve in the treatment procedures. As per the findings of a study conducted by HealthIT.gov, an estimated 88% of U.S. adults agreed that using patient engagement solutions such as patient portals, mobile apps and wearable medical devices has helped them manage their health effectively.

The growing patient population suffering from chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension is boosting the growth of the patient engagement solutions market. As per the data published by Accenture, the usage of patient engagement solutions among the chronic disease patient population is ranging between 52% to 76%. Patients suffering from chronic diseases require ongoing care and disease management. To such patients, patient engagement solutions have been helping significantly to communicate with the healthcare providers and participate in the treatment procedures. Patient engagement tools such as mobile apps, patient portals, remote monitoring devices, and other digital platforms help patients to actively participate in treatment procedures and address their needs.

Many governments, patients and healthcare providers have realized the importance and the kind of role patient engagement solutions are playing in delivering improved healthcare outcomes and reducing healthcare costs. As a result, several governments made regulations and have brought initiatives in favor of patient engagement solutions. The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in the United States were announced to provide rewards to healthcare providers to boost the adoption of patient engagement solutions to further deliver improved healthcare outcomes and reduce healthcare costs to patients. In addition, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced rewarding programs to healthcare providers to use patient engagement solutions. Likewise, the Digital Single Market initiative in Europe by the European Commission has been encouraging healthcare professionals to adopt digital health technologies including patient engagement solutions. Similarly, other regions such as the Asia-Pacific and Latin America are introducing initiatives and regulations to boost the adoption of patient engagement solutions in the respective healthcare systems.

In addition, an increasing number of advancements in healthcare technologies, rising adoption of mHealth and telemedicine, growing usage of social media and digital channels in the healthcare industry and increasing adoption of electronic health records (EHR) are fuelling the growth rate of the patient engagement solutions market. The growing healthcare costs, the rising need for cost-effective healthcare solutions, the increasing aging population worldwide and the growing focus on population health management are supporting the growth of the patient engagement solutions market.

Furthermore, the growing adoption of cloud-based solutions, rising penetration of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the healthcare industry, and increasing awareness among people regarding the benefits of patient engagement solutions and technologies are supporting the market's growth rate. Factors such as rising emphasis on patient feedback and experience by the hospitals, increasing adoption of personalized medicine, the growing shift from fee-for-service to value-based reimbursement models, increasing importance of patient data analytics and insights and rising prevalence of mental health and behavioral health conditions are sharing favorable impact on the growth of the patient engagement solutions market.

Global Patient Engagement Solutions Market Restraints:

Poor awareness levels among people and healthcare providers regarding the benefits of patient engagement solutions and technologies in some countries are hampering the growth rate of the overall market. Privacy and security concerns associated with the usage of patient engagement solutions are another significant attribute hindering market growth. High costs associated with the implementation and training of patient engagement solutions are notable factors impeding market growth. Due to these high costs, the adoption of patient engagement solutions is being limited among the smaller healthcare providers. In addition, the complexities that patients are facing using patient engagement technologies, interoperability issues and the stringent regulatory environment for these solutions are inhibiting the market’s growth rate.

Impact of COVID-19 on the patient engagement solutions market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has boosted the demand for patient engagement solutions and technologies and contributed favorably to market growth. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for virtual care has increased significantly. Due to the restrictions imposed such as lockdowns, travel bans and social distancing, many patients could not able to go to the hospitals for their treatment needs and preferred virtual care solutions such as telemedicine platforms, remote monitoring technologies, and other patient engagement solutions. As per the data published by McKinsey, the usage of telehealth jumped from 11% in 2019 to 46% in 2020 in the United States due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The importance of patient-centered healthcare has further increased during the COVID-19 pandemic as many patients wanted to play an active role in the treatment procedures and preferred personalized medicine, which has favored the patient engagement solutions market. According to the survey conducted by the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative, 78% of the patients have shown a willingness to participate in the treatment procedures and disease management and 66% of the patients have agreed that patient engagement technologies help them in effective healthcare delivery and improve quality of healthcare. The COVID-19 pandemic has boosted the adoption of digital health technologies including patient engagement solutions. As per the survey conducted by the American Health Association, around 81% of physicians in the United States have used telehealth to offer patient care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Likewise, the COVID-19 pandemic has favored the patient engagement solutions market. However, considering the reduced impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the patient engagement solutions market is predicted to witness a healthy CAGR during the forecast period.
