Revenues for remote patient monitoring (RPM) solutions reached € 7.5 billion in 2016, according to a new study released by Berg Insight. This includes revenues from medical monitoring devices, mHealth connectivity solutions, care delivery platforms and mHealth care programs. RPM revenues are expected to grow at a CAGR of 33.8 percent between 2016 and 2021, reaching € 32.4 billion at the end of the forecast period.

Savings attributable to payers and care providers will by far exceed this amount as connected care solutions can allow better health outcomes to be achieved more cost efficiently. The new care models enabled by these technologies are often consistent with patients’ preferences of living more healthy, active and independent lives. The healthcare industry is advancing towards an age where connected healthcare solutions will be part of standard care practices. “All health related devices that can be connected will be connected and patient data management therefore becomes increasingly important”, says Anders Frick, Senior Analyst at Berg Insight.

He describes how the line between medical devices and health gadgets becomes blurred and traditional as well as startup companies try to position themselves as important players in the ecosystem for mHealth data. National PHR systems, device manufacturing companies, independent app producers and tech giants such as Google, Apple and Microsoft are some of the stakeholders. Another major trend is the consumerization of medical-grade mHealth devices and apps.

“Payers and healthcare providers will have opportunities to take advantage of this trend, as consumers that already have started to use connected medical devices more easily can be onboarded onto new mHealth care programs”, concludes Frick.
