Surging Healthcare Costs to Propel Market Growth

Telehealth overcomes the distance barriers and ensures healthcare delivery across remote locations in developed and underdeveloped countries. Governments of numerous nations are forming policies and developing pilot projects to provide healthcare in rural areas.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services projected an increase in the national healthcare expenditure in the U.S. from USD 3.81 trillion in 2019 to USD 4.01 trillion in 2020.
