Data Security Concerns Inhibit Telemedicine Services Market Growth

Possibility for breach in data makes patients uncomfortable with sharing personal information that would help the physicians to diagnose the patients’ health, affecting the telemedicine market negatively. Telemedicine services are provided online or through calls and might not have much security for storing the data. In some cases, telemedicine companies may use third-party servers to store customer data to cut down on maintenance cost, which might lead to easy data breaches. Breaches are potential threats to the telemedicine services industry, hampering the growth of the market.

Telemedicine Services Market Trends- Increasing Acceptance Of Telemedicine

Telemedicine is increasingly being accepted, and insurance companies and government-regulated health care programs are increasingly covering telemedicine services in their plans. Governments are probing companies to make changes to the policies to cover the services under their schemes. For instance, in March 2020, in response to the coronavirus outbreak, the US government announced that private insurers will be covering the cost of coronavirus testing and telemedicine services for patients.
