The Global Urgent Care Apps Market is expected to be valued at USD 7,931.1 Million in 2027 from USD 591.5 Million in 2019, registering a CAGR of 40.2% through the forecast period. Urgent care apps are mobile applications that can provide notifications to healthcare professionals, such as doctors and physicians, about medical emergencies. These apps are widely considered a patient engagement tool and can be remotely accessed by users to connect with registered healthcare facilities in emergency cases. These apps are best suited for home health care for geriatric patients. Urgent care apps offer a host of benefits, including pain management for panic situations, chronic pain guidance, and immediate appointment booking. Therefore, the use of these apps has helped significantly reduce healthcare costs and slow down the rate of hospital readmissions.
The global urgent care apps market is expected to register massive growth in the upcoming years due to various favorable factors. Increasing demand for patient-centric treatment, growing adoption of mobile healthcare apps, surging focus on reducing healthcare costs, and rising acceptance of home health care. Moreover, the rising adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the healthcare industry for high-quality healthcare outcomes is expected to boost the global urgent care apps market during the forecast period.
Other indispensable factors, such as improved global network connectivity, augmented access to the internet, growing investments by organizations in healthcare infrastructure development, and introduction of affordable and user-friendly health apps, have further propelled the global market growth. However, the rising usage of alternative solutions like instant messaging apps, coupled with growing concerns about data privacy loss and cyberattacks, is expected to limit the global urgent care apps market growth over the projected period.
