Transparency Market Research’s recent report, titled, “Patient Portal Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2016–2024,” discusses the prospects of the market. Such online platforms containing every form of data pertaining to a patient can be accessed from anywhere, anytime by medical practitioners, patients, medical practitioners, and pharmacists. This enables patients to interact with the health care providers much more easily.

The benefit of a patient portal is that it centralizes the patient’s information which enables the health care provider to offer proper, effective treatment and track the heath of the patient. Another USP of patient portals are that they are affordable. Besides, they are extremely useful during emergencies when a patient is mostly unconscious and cannot communicate. They are useful in routine check-ups too since they help bring down the time to understanding patient history. All of the aforementioned are serving to drive the market for patient portal.
