The conventional approach of manually tracking the health data of individuals is associated with several challenges, including delay in timely assessment of critical health information, susceptibility to errors, time and cost-intensive process, and risk of loss / damage of health records, thereby hindering timely treatment of patients (specifically the aging population). It is estimated that 65% of hospital patients and more than 90% of post-acute care patients are manually tracked for vitals and patient-specific parameters, every four to eight hours. As a result, there has been a rising prominence of telemedicine that leverages digital tools in order to provide remote consultations and services.

Notably, digital health technologies enable continuous patient monitoring, thereby allowing health practitioners to timely track the baseline changes in individual patients. Additionally, the implementation of continuous monitoring system has proven to significantly reduce adverse events and hospital re-admissions. The growing field of digital biomarkers as well as digital therapeutics are a part of the broader digital health market.

Further, as per the World Health Organization, by 2030, one-sixth of the global population will be aged over 60 years. Hence, detecting their symptoms proactively at an early stage is intuitively better than treating patients who are seriously ill (due to longer waiting time). Studies have shown that continuous symptom tracking with early intervention has not only led to remarkable improvement in quality of life of patients, but also led to reduced healthcare costs.

The rising digitalization in the healthcare industry has led to the development of several digital solutions, that are capable of generating, collecting and tracking medical information (via biomarkers in the body). Digital solutions for biomarkers are defined as digital devices (such as smartphones, sensors and wearable devices) that measure / quantify the physiological and behavioral or biometric data (including blood pressure, emotional health, heart rate, glucose level, physical activity, respiratory function and sleep pattern).

These advanced solutions enable real-time monitoring of an individual’s health (specifically in chronic disease management), encourage proactive participation of individuals in wellness activities, and allow personalized healthcare by tailoring the treatments based on individual data. With the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, growing emphasis on remote patient monitoring and continuous advancements in the technologies, the digital biomarkers market size is prepared for growth, in the foreseen future.
