Patients and healthcare professionals use digital health technologies to efficiently manage and track healthcare-related activities. The market is primarily driven by the rising demand for telehealth services such as remote patient monitoring.

The need for home-based medical care is also being boosted by the expanding geriatric population, which is more susceptible to significant medical diseases. Along these lines, the rising frequency of numerous chronic illnesses that call for ongoing medical care, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and arthritis, is also fueling demand for digital health services. Moreover, various government organizations in GCC nations are introducing a variety of healthcare policies to improve disease management and make healthcare more accessible to people from all socioeconomic backgrounds. These regulations aid in encouraging the use of digital health platforms to provide effective medical care in remote areas. The market expansion in the GCC region will continue to be fueled by the growing integration of digital health with a number of cutting-edge technologies, including AI, picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), and predictive analytics. As health authorities struggle to satisfy demand and service shortages lead to an increase in expensive outbound medical tourism, there are prospects for development and expansion even as the shift to specialty care continues.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution's innovations and technological advancements have usually been welcomed by the GCC, and this is also true of the healthcare industry. Digital infrastructure virtual care, remote patient monitoring, and Artificial Intelligence account for hospital investments in the region.
