The Tele-Intensive Care ICU (Tele-ICU) is a telemedicine application that addresses the critical care of a hospital patient. Tele-ICU help connect the bedside ICU team with the critical care team at a remote location with the help of monitoring and audiovisual communication systems. This system includes hardware and software which collects the data of patient and transmits it from the distant ICU to the physician at a remote location through a command center. The data transmitted and collected by the ICU system comprises patient's physiological status, medical records, and treatment.
A surge in the number of intensive care units worldwide and continuous advancements in technology related with the remote patient monitoring system are major driving factors behind the growth of the market. Likewise, factors such as increasing prevalence of chronic disease cases, rising need to reduce hospital stay times, efficient delivery of care, reduced rates of ICU complication, enhanced productivity of clinical staff, and improved training opportunities are further expected to improve growth of the market during the estimated timeframe.
The study analyses Global Tele-Intensive Care Unit Market based on component, type and geography.
Based on component, software segment dominated the market in the past few years and is likely to maintain its dominance at high growth rate during the forecast period. The regular upgrading and availability of newer versions several software is anticipated to contribute towards the growth of this segment. Also factors such as emerging trends in information technology, improved computer-human interfaces, growing technological advancements in software infrastructure, digitization of clinical reference materials and introduction of software-based clinical decision support tools are the major factors contributing to the software market segment.
Based on type, intensivist segment is projected to witness fast growth during the forecast period. Tele-ICUs link a central command center with patients in distant ICUs, operated by intensivists. The intensivist specifically manages patient treatment in the intensivist model. In this system, problems of the patients’ are identified quicker, leading to lower mortality rates and more quick and complete interventions. Thus, increasing number of patients which need ICU care with a corresponding increase in the supply of intensivists is attributed to the growth of the market.
Geographically, the study is comprised of the key countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. North America held the largest market share of global tele-intensive care unit market and is likely to dominate the market over the estimated time frame. An increasing conduction of several study and research by clinicians and engineers for the development of hardware and software devices in multiple indications of brain and heart, is major driving factor behind the growth of market across the North America. Additionally, vast presence of global market players, rising adoption of therapeutic devices, and increasing number of nursing activities across the region are expected to improve market growth across the NA region.
The major key players of market includes InTouch Technologies, Inc, Advanced ICU Care, Koninklijke Philips N.V, UPMC, Banner Health, TeleICUCare, Eagle Telemedicine, Apollo Tele Health Services, SOC Telemed, INTeleICU, INOVA, Philips, iMDsoft, and VISICU among others.
The study analyses global Tele-Intensive Care Unit market based on component, type, and geography. Tele-Intensive Care Unit market by component is segmented into hardware and software.
