Challenges Ahead

  • Security Concerns and Regulatory/Reimbursement Obstacles: Telemedicine involves the exchange of sensitive medical information over the internet, making data susceptible to unlawful interception. Regulatory and reimbursement policies for telemedicine vary from country to country, potentially creating bottlenecks for service providers.

Overview of Key Segments

Teleradiology to Remain Dominant Application

Teleradiology was the leading specialty segment in 2019 and is expected to maintain its dominant position until the end of the forecast period.
