How is the Home Healthcare Market Positioned Across the Globe?
The growth of home healthcare market in the past decade was limited to America and Europe. The industry has now started booming with companies expanding their global footprint and investing in growth markets such as India, China and Germany. In countries where it is adopted by the government, home healthcare proved to reduce emergency department visits, hospitalizations and readmissions. In USA, Medicare saved USD 2,700 per beneficiary annually for homebound patients.
The occupancy rates of beds in nursing homes and hospitals has been increasing in various countries hence stakeholders are more willing to adopt ways to shift patients to their homes and free up beds for more complex and urgent cases. According to a survey by Canadian Home Care Association, with the aid of healthcare services at home, there has been a decline of around 72% in emergency department visits in the country in 2018.
Across the globe, hospitalization costs are surging and quality of nursing homes and residential care facilities is reported to be deteriorating. This has further paved the way for quality in-home care demand. The number of remotely monitored patients in 2016 was estimated to be around ~ million and is forecasted to reach ~ million by the year ending 2021. Home medical monitoring devices connections are estimated to reach ~ million units by 2021, led by the CRM segment.
Countries such as Japan and Germany are currently facing an “ageing crisis” with high demand for long term care but much lower supply of medical professionals, especially in the home healthcare segment, where employee turnover ratios are as high as ~40.0%.
Even though home healthcare constitutes an average of 3.0%-6.0% of overall health spending, it is a growing challenge for the government to sustain the demand. EHC, one of the leading home healthcare providers, reported that out-of-pocket spending contributed less than 1.0% to its revenue in 2018. The ratio can be anywhere between 1.0% to 8.0% in USA for Medicare/Medicaid enrolled agencies and much higher in countries where home health care is not covered in government health insurance and policies, such as India.
