Global Urgent Care Apps Market Trends:

Increasing Prevalence of Various Health Conditions

The rising cases of various chronic ailments across the world are primarily driving the market for urgent care apps. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), chronic diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide. Ischemic heart disease alone was responsible for about 8.89 million deaths in 2019. In line with this, the rise in the number of cardiac patients is also catalyzing the need for urgent care apps to facilitate immediate medical care. According to the Global Stroke Fact Sheet 2022 published by the World Stroke Organization, there were over 12.2 million new strokes each year globally till 2022.  Besides this, the increasing demand for pre-hospital emergency care and triaging apps to reduce medication errors and training is also contributing to the growth of the market. In August 2021, in a recently published randomized clinical trial titled 'Effect of a Mobile App on Pre-hospital Medication Errors During Simulated Pediatric Resuscitation,' it was found that there was a significant drop in the proportion of medication errors, drug preparation time, and drug delivery time with the help of urgent care apps. As a result, the market is anticipated to witness significant growth in urgent care apps market demand.

Technological Advancements

Several emerging technologies like Machine Learning, Big Data, and IoT are revolutionizing the mHealth industry. In addition to this, new product launches and strategic activities by major players are also creating a positive outlook for the overall market. For instance, in February 2021, Pulsara launched Pulsara HQ, a new browser-based command center for enhanced patient coordination. The browser application allows clinicians to manage patient status and details in a centralized location easily.  Similarly, in October 2023, cedars-Sinai launched a new artificial intelligence-driven mHealth application for patients in California that provides virtual care options for various clinical conditions. The Cedars-Sinai Connect app provides 24/7 virtual access to healthcare professionals for urgent care and same-day appointments for primary care. Patients can use the app to access care for numerous conditions, including colds, headaches, anxiety, type 2 diabetes, wellness visits, and specialist referrals. In line with this, in May 2023, Zocdoc, the leading healthcare marketplace that makes it easy for people to find and book in-person or virtual care across +200 specialties and +12k insurance plans, announced that it is adding Urgent Care to its marketplace. Urgent Care is one of the fastest-growing care categories on Zocdoc among patients and providers. Such advancements are anticipated to propel the urgent care apps market value in the coming years. 

Increasing Number of Smartphone Users

The wide availability of cellular phones and increasing penetration of 4G and 5G networks are revolutionizing both the availability and the cost of communications for pre-hospital emergency care systems. For instance, according to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), as of December 31, 2021, India had 829.30 million internet users, which denoted a 4.29% growth from the previous year. Moreover, as of 2024, an estimated 4.88 billion people will own a smartphone. That's an increase of 635 million new smartphone users over the past year alone between 2023 and 2024. The number of smartphone users worldwide has grown by 2.15x since 2020, adding 2.61 billion new smartphone owners over time. Furthermore, rising investments, collaborations, mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, and government initiatives to support the adoption and implementation of urgent care apps are positively impacting the urgent care apps market outlook. For instance, in March 2020, Epic announced the launch of its new mobile app in collaboration with OCHIN. The app supports delivering urgent care for consumers who were on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic and do not have any immediate access to EHR.
