Rising hospitalisation costs, long queues have led to a rapid expansion in healthcare delivery market. Home based healthcare delivery services are gaining more popularity with many of them going online to provide better access to patients.
Tired of long queues and difficulties in accessing a formal hospital setup have enabled the home based healthcare services to gain a measurable market share. Physiotherapy, COPD management, stroke rehabilitation, palliative care to even home doctor visits have been providing relief to patients at the comfort of their home.
However, it comes with its own pitfalls like increased costs, lack of insurance coverage, non-standardized practices. These services are not to be used as an alternative to regular visit to the doctor, but as an aid to access long term personalized healthcare more effectively.
