Rapid technological advancements, smartphones, and the Internet have changed the way people interact with healthcare services. Telehealth has already passed the initial stage of evolution and entered the active development phase. Currently, the global telehealth and telemedicine market is expected to grow 26.6% annually until 2027, with an estimated market value of $285.7 billion.

The pandemic has accelerated technology adoption, and as stated by, the demand for telehealth apps increased by 65% during this time. In mid-2020, 52% of healthcare visits happened virtually, but this figure had since dropped down to 38% in 2022. Although it has significantly declined, it remains higher than it was before the pandemic.

Moreover, other market drivers advance the new normal in healthcare:

  1. The necessity to expand healthcare access to remote areas
  2. The increasing number of chronic diseases
  3. An insufficient number of doctors
  4. Technological advancements 
  5. Rising adoption of telecommunications 

With all the above factors in mind, it’s no surprise that more and more telemedicine apps are appearing. Having extensive expertise and experience in the mobile app development field, we have reviewed the best medical apps in 2023.
