Preventative healthcare, or preventive healthcare, accounts for measures that are adopted for disease prevention rather than disease treatment. Millions of people die preventable deaths every year and this can be due to environmental factors, lifestyle choices, and genetic susceptibility. Leading causes for the majority of preventable deaths include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, chronic respiratory disease, and a number of infectious diseases. With a constant rise in the number of people getting affected by these chronic diseases, the preventive healthcare industry has gained a lot of momentum across the globe. Preventive healthcare can be of three types, namely, primary prevention, secondary prevention, and tertiary prevention. Primary prevention is sub-divided into vaccination and health counselling and includes all those steps that are taken to generate awareness about the disease and its symptoms before it strikes.

Secondary prevention includes screening tests and monitoring that accounts for tests undertaken in laboratory and health-care settings to ascertain if a person is susceptible to any particular disease or is depicting any symptoms for a potential disease. Finally, tertiary prevention comprises disease management activities and the steps that are taken to rehabilitate those who have undergone interventional surgical procedures and are advised to adopt a healthier lifestyle. The technical insights report also talks about the market impact of key innovations across the preventive healthcare space, the drivers and challenges that affect the preventive medicine industry as a whole and the geographical funding scenario of public sector in preventive healthcare. the report also includes insights to the adoption scenario across nations and the growth opportunities that exist within the space of preventive healthcare.

Preventative healthcare, or preventive healthcare, accounts for measures that are adopted for disease prevention rather than disease treatment.

Key Findings

Government programs on promoting disease awareness have increased
Driven largely by increased government promotions and awareness programs, a number of health-care bodies have been set up with the objective to promote the importance of preventive medicine, for instance, cessation of tobacco and alcohol, importance of exercise, dietary changes and regular health checkups.

Preventive health interventions are costeffective
Relative to treatment procedures, preventive health interventions are cost-effective, both from the prospective of health service payers and public funded health systems. Early diagnosis and prevention of disease and its symptoms reduces burden on inpatient/outpatient care, ambulatory services, medications and rehabilitation.

Government funding to focus on primary and secondary prevention has increased
The percentage of gross domestic product spent on healthcare has risen sharply across the globe in the last five decades and policy makers have supported preventive healthcare as a tool to slow the rate of growth in healthcare spending. Increased public funding for health counselling and vaccination programs are seen as the key to success in promoting preventive healthcare.

Role of self-monitoring devices hold key to the success of preventive healthcare
Self-monitoring devices, especially blood glucose monitoring devices, cholesterol measuring devices and an increased focus on wearable electronic health trackers shall hold key to preventive healthcare as these devices allow users to test their vitals at home.
