Growth in Telemedicine Market Means Opportunity

Telemedicine represents a rapidly growing sector of health care. Part of this segment, remote patient monitoring, now exceeds $5 billion annually.A new Insight and Intelligence report predicts close to a 70% growth rate in this industry for the next several years. As with many start-​up industries, many small companies offer telemedicine service to health care providers. These small firms typically earn average revenues of $6.6 million. As the industry moves from start-​up through high-​growth and to maturity, some firms will survive or be bought up by larger operators or conglomerates. Others will fail.
