Most of all, the healthcare industry witnessed massive changes and embraced digital initiatives around telehealth, data analytics, and digital engagement to meet growing demands. As per IBEF, the digital healthcare market in India stood at US$ 116.61 billion in 2018, however, by 2024, it is expected to increase at a CAGR of 27.41% to US$ 485.43 billion.
