The pandemic will accelerate the adoption of telemedicine

The percentage of video visits to doctors will rise to 5% of the total appointments globally in 2021, up from an estimated 1% in 2019, according to Deloitte.

This translates into more than 400 million video visits with a total worth of about US$25 billion only in the 36 countries members of the OECD.

In addition, Deloitte estimates that the market focused exclusively on telehealth virtual visit solutions will reach US$8 billion in 2021.

Also, the sales of medical health care technology such as therapeutic and monitoring solutions, which can include medically approved consumer products such as smart watches, will hit more than US$33 billion in 2021, up almost 20% over 2019.
