Covid-19 Impact on the Healthcare IT Market

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, medical practices of all sizes are under immense pressure, and healthcare facilities across the globe have been overwhelmed by the large number of patients visiting them on a daily basis. The rising prevalence of coronavirus disease has driven the demand for accurate diagnosis and treatment devices in several countries across the globe. In this regard, connected care technologies have proven to be very helpful, as they allow healthcare providers to monitor patients using digitally connected noninvasive devices, such as home blood pressure monitors and pulse oximeters.

The COVID-19 pandemic has also increased the need for social distancing among physicians and patients, which has driven the demand for healthcare IT solutions such as remote patient monitoring and telehealth solutions and the need for the accurate and timely exchange of patient health records. In this regard, healthcare IT is an effective tool that provides a framework for exchanging, sharing, and retrieving electronic health information with advanced security.
