The global demand for health technology solutions has increased due to COVID-19. Phone or video consultations and remote patient monitoring allow for the continuation of vital healthcare services without the risk of virus transmission. This has influenced policy in various markets. On the other hand, developing economies confront unique issues in terms of cost and accessibility, with substantial parts of the population lacking access to physical and even digital infrastructure critical to healthcare. This study examines trends and difficulties in emerging market health systems and Telemedicine as an option. There will be a review and analysis of literature, survey data, and research from public health organizations, government resources, and telehealth platforms. With its enormous population, increasing health expenditures, and quick economic expansion, China has the potential to replace the United States and Japan as the leading telemedicine market and will be the focus of a case study to support and highlight significant results from the literature review. The current state of China's telehealth market and the business case for expanding its activities will be examined. Various studies, white papers, and webinar conversations will be used as sources of knowledge for this essay.
