Impact of COVID-19 on Diabetes Treatment Market in Pharmaceutical Industry


OVERVIEW

The COVID-19 has posed a complex challenge in front of different healthcare market players, which has badly impacted the worldwide market. The COVID-19 disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus is a newly discovered infectious disease, and it has been reported that along with respiratory organs it also affects the other organs such as kidney, heart, digestive tract, blood and nervous system.
This has been reported that the older people and people having pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes, asthma among others are more vulnerable to prevailing COVID-19. If people having diabetes develop COVID-19 infection, it becomes harder to treat the fluctuating blood glucose levels and hence it becomes difficult to treat the diabetes complications. As the diabetic patients have weak immune system, those people are generally took longer recovery period. Moreover, the environment of elevated blood glucose levels provides and ambient condition for the survival of coronavirus for a longer period of time.
The prevailing COVID-19 has resulted in lockdown in order to prevent the uninfected people from those of infected one; this lockdown has created a stressful mind among the people having chronic disease such as diabetes related to medicines and diagnostic tools. The COVID-19 is likely to infect people having diabetes with 50% higher risk as compared to those who do not having diabetes. Thus, it is very much important for diabetic patients to maintain accurate blood glucose level and also to strengthen the immune system to stay protected from getting infected from the virus.
FIGURE: 1 TOP MOST DIABETES PREVAILING COUNTRIES (2019)
the prevalence of diabetes is increasing worldwide it has become important to provide patients with proper medicines and accurate diagnostic tools during the prevailing pandemic of COVID-19, this is the reason why pharmaceutical companies and government are taking several steps in order to deal with cumbersome condition.

PRICE IMPACT:

As no such treatment has been discovered yet for coronavirus, the fear of getting infection led the people to remain safe at their home, as a result of which various businesses around the world is suffering a lot involving pharmaceutical companies among others.
As India relies on China for 70% of drug intermediates and bulk drugs, COVID-19 is expected to hike the price of the medicines used for diabetes treatment.
For instance,
· India relies on China for Metformin Hydrochloride which is used to control the high blood sugar level in patients having type II-diabetes. According to a report it has been suggested that the stock of Metformin Hydrochloride lasted for March 2020, and now India is facing scarce of this ingredient, this is likely to hike the price of diabetes treatment medicines.
· As per the new report published by CBS news stated that Medtronic, headquarter in Dublin, Ireland is a medical technology company, the company depends on import of some raw materials from others regions of world for manufacturing of insulin pumps and others products, but as a result of lockdown and ban across the borders, the company is likely to suffer from shortage of raw material that will pose a direct impact on manufacturing and hence led to price increase of insulin pumps.
· This has been reported that makers of electronic drug delivery systems in India rely on China for several electronic components. Almost all electronic makers are increasing prices by 3-5% due to shortage of imports and export activities which ultimately led to shortage of parts. As electronic components are used for the manufacturing of insulin pumps the increasing prices of electronic component led to hike in price of insulin pumps.
This thus signifies that due to COVID-19 pandemic the price of insulin pumps and the medicines used for diabetes treatment will increase across the globe.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON DEMAND

The coronavirus has affected the various regions of the world and caused widespread closure of market players and local manufacturing plants. This lockdown and isolation has adversely impacted the global economic activity.
COVID-19 is expected to be an opportunity for diabetes treatment market, as the patients having diabetes are at the higher risk of getting COVID-19 infection.
THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 INFECTION ON DIABETIC PATIENTS
Diabetic patients have impaired immune systems and are prone to infectious agents as they have lost the ability to fight against pathogenic organisms.
Moreover diabetic patients have poor glycemic control which also led to increasing chances of viral infection.
Most of the diabetic patients are founded to be obese and obese people are also at a higher risk of COVID-19 infection due to less metabolism activity which even led to the weak immune system.
Diabetes is treated with angiotensin converting enzymes inhibitors and this has been discovered that coronavirus binds to the target cells through this enzyme, an enzyme expressed in the blood vessels and lungs. As an increasing level of ACE2 enzyme founded in diabetic patients, the chances of COVID-19 also increases in such patients.
As the diabetic patients are more prone to COVID-19 infection, they usually look for proper glycemic control. In order to control diabetes, a diabetic patient usually relies on advanced medicines and insulin pumps.
Along with this the market players engaged in the manufacturing of diabetes management tools that are continually making profit even, during the prevalence of COVID-19.
For instance,
· In a post of May 2020, Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc, the San Diego- based company maker of electronic insulin pumps among other diabetes management devices commented that the company is still making profit due to positive customer feedback on its products such as slim X2 with Control-IQ technology (electronic insulin pump).
This suggests that increasing prevalence of COVID-19 poses a life threating challenges to diabetic patients and hence enhances the demand of diabetes treatment solution. This thus signifies that COVID- 19 is accelerating the demand of diabetes treatment market.

IMPACT ON SUPPLY

Due to pertinacious COVID-19 lockdown, sanctions have been imposed by the governments of various countries. These restrictions and barriers across countries borders led to a decrease in supply of APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients) needed for drug manufacturing and raw materials required for manufacturing of devices including insulin pumps.
China is considered to be the manufacturing hub of most of the electronic raw materials and India among other countries is heavily dependent on China for electronic raw materials needed for manufacturing of insulin pumps.
Moreover, India procures 70% of APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients) included Metformin, a diabetes treatment medicine from China, but due to continuous barrier the country is unable to achieve delivery of such products at correct time and in proper amount.
As per the report published on March, 2020 stated that India is suffering from shortage of insulin and other refrigerated medicines due to COVID-19 impact. In India most of the diabetic patients relies on three to four million of insulin shots in each month and these insulin have to keep in cold temperature zones. While the COVID-19 lockdown a shortage of refrigerated vans have been reported that posed a problem for supply of refrigerated insulin to many parts of India.
This signifies that due to continuous lockdown and several restrictions by government authorities the market players and patients are facing disruption of supply chain for raw materials.

STRATEGIC DECISIONS of MANUFACTURERS

Collaboration, agreements, strategic initiatives by market players such as Medtronic, Novo Nordisk India Pvt Ltd, among others in the diabetes treatment market and will help them to expand their product portfolio and to provide with appropriate solutions to physicians and patients. This in turn will lead to increasing product sales and hence will put a positive impact on overall company’s revenue.
Diabetes drug and device manufacturing companies are taking so many strategic decisions in order to cope up with the current scenario of COVID-19. The market players engaged in the manufacturing of diabetes treatment are collaborating so as to accelerate the development of medicines and devices.
The market players have already taken several kinds of strategic initiatives in order to cope up with the corona virus situation.
For instance,
· In July 2020, Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. signed a collaborative agreement with one of the med- tech company, Medtronic. The agreement signed by these two companies reflects patent cross-license agreement for t: slimX2 insulin pump manufactured by Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. and MiniMed 670G insulin pump manufactured by Medtronic.
· In June 2020, Medtronic received an award of USD 337 million for enhancing the research and development for diabetes treatment products. This award has helped the company to boost up in research activities so as to develop an innovative insulin management solution amid the novel COVID-19 prevalence.
· In April 2020, Medtronic, a company engaged in manufacturing of insulin pumps done a rapid expansion of its distribution and production facilities in order to provide the proper diabetic solutions across the world. Moreover, the company’s employees are working every day in order to fulfill the company’s mission to restore health and alleviate life.
· In March 2020, Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. posted that as restriction were imposed by the California’s governor at the company’s headquarter in San Diego, most of the team workers are working remotely so that the company can maintain the supply chain of their product to their customers worldwide.
With the increasing demand and increasing sales of diabetes treatment medicines and devices, are fueling the growth of diabetes treatment market.
Thus, the market players operating in the diabetes treatment market are adopting several strategies, including collaboration, agreements, market expansion to enhance their business. These strategic decisions by the market players are expected to provide significant opportunities for the market players operating in the diabetes treatment market.

CONCLUSION

As the pandemic of COVID-19 has resulted in several restrictions throughout the borders but still manufacturers of diabetes medicines and devices are able to manage their stocks. Various manufacturers have allowed their manufacturers to work remotely for manufacturing of insulin pumps and medicines at various manufacturing facilities across safe regions of world helping them to maintain continuous supply chain. Moreover, by raising price of diabetes treatment the market players are gaining extra profit which is helping them to combat the negative effect on overall revenue.

What COVID-19 Impacted on Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Diagnostics in Healthcare Industry ?
Impact of COVID-19 on Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Diagnostics in Healthcare Industry The novel coronavirus has profoundly impacted all fields, including healthcare, medical device services, automotive, pharmaceutical and many others. This pandemic has led to shutdowns of mass production and disruptions in the supply chain that have impacted the economies of virtually every nation in the world. The pandemic also affected the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic industry. The patient's fear of contracting the virus compels patients to stay home instead of undergoing diagnosis and treatment. As a result, the hospitals and clinics were filled up with COVID-19 patients and less preference was given to non-small cell lung cancer patients. Moreover, limited access to clinics, social distancing, the lockdown of the population, which results in a slow-down in patient flow and referrals, has also impacted the market growth. However, with the cases decreasing in number and increase in vaccination against COVID-19 across the globe, the market for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market may get a boost due to some relaxation in COVID-19 cases, which will result in increased demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnosis with patients coming forward to clinics and hospitals for treatment. During the COVID-19 pandemic, countries worldwide witnessed a large number of patients suffering from COVID-19 and post COVID-19 complications such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and kidney problems. As the COVID-19 cases were rising, the healthcare system had shifted its focus in curbing the disease, thereby delaying diagnosis and treatment of other chronic conditions as cancer. Thus, a negative impact is expected on the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market due to the pandemic scenario IMPACT ON PRICE The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic does not significantly impact the global non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. But it is estimated that if COVID-19 continues to spread for a prolonged period, then the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic equipment and devices will highly upsurge for top importer countries. For therapies and the diagnostic United States solicit the huge number of medical devices, followed by China and Japan. For instance, · According to the General Administration of Customs (GAC), China's exports of medical machinery and devices increased 40.5 percent in 2020 compared to the previous year, reaching USD 18.138 billion · According to the World Trade Organisation, the U.S. imports and exports of medical goods increased by 16 %, reaching USD 1,139.00 billion in value Henceforth for diagnosis, dependency of these countries highly increases on other exporters and many countries solely depend on China and the U.S. for the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic equipment. Consequently, this may lead to a rise in the overall non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic cost. This increase in the price of the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic may hamper the market growth if it continues to be the same. Additionally, if the lockdown continues to stretch for a long period, then import of non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market is estimated to get more restricted, which may further lead to a rise in the price of the these devices IMPACT ON DEMAND Various screening, diagnostic and surgical procedures were restricted and at hospitals and cancer treatment centers, which resulted in disruptions in the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. However, even during the pandemic, the lung cancer cases were subsequent, which is expected to increase the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. For instance, · According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2020, lung cancer accounted for 2,206 771 deaths among both sexes. The lung cancer statistics include both small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. About 13% of all lung cancers are small cell lung cancer and 84% are non-small cell lung cancer. This proves an increase in the number of non-small cell lung cancer patients even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, according to the American Cancer Society, Inc., lung cancer patients are likely to get infected with coronavirus because of the changes in their immune system that control their body's defense systems. For instance, · According to a study published in PubMed, patients with lung cancer are at an increased risk of becoming infected with the virus and experience higher morbidity and mortality than the general population Thus, having cancer such as non-small cell lung cancer may also increase the risk of severe illness from COVID-19 as the cancer therapy treatment reduce the immune system of the body. . This has increased the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic tools, especially in cancer-dedicated hospitals and surgical centres, where all the patients of non-small cell lung cancer-related problems are treated. Thus, with the increased lung cancer cases, the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic will increase in the coming years. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN The supply chain was widely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic as acute restrictions and lockdowns produced many urgent situations in the early days of the pandemic, which needed immediate attention. The supply chain disruption has transformed many organizations' business environments, including the supply chain of non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. The supply chain disruption impacted the Asia-Pacific region initially, especially the demand from China due to challenges from restricted movement and quarantine period. For instance, · According to the FDA, 63 manufacturers representing 72 facilities in China that produce essential medical devices face obstacles in manufacturing medical devices and their supply, owing to citing workforce challenges and the necessary quarantine of workers. Moreover, closing borders of various countries is anticipated to diminish the supply chain business environment, as it may hamper export of the medical supplies To minimize supply chain crises, the FDA has been firmly monitoring the supply chain with the assumption that the COVID-19 outbreak may adversely impact the supply chain of medical products, including shortages of critical medical products in the U.S. or potential disruptions in supply chains. Many organizations and countries are looking forward to improving and diversified supply chain models in all aspects to manage such a crucial situation. A diversified supply chain model anticipated minimizing the export of medical products as well as increase end-to-end visibility. For instance, · The Brazilian government published a resolution eliminating import taxes on 141 medical products and hospital equipment · The European Commission made a decision for helping Member States affected by the pandemic to suspend customs duties and VAT on medical devices temporarily · Federal indirect tax body the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council of India has decided to cut taxes on medical supplies CONCLUSION It is estimated that the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has significantly impacted the growth of non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market as the rising cases of COVID-19 worldwide the healthcare system had shifted its focus in curbing the disease, thereby resulting in the delay of diagnosis and treatment of non-small cell lung cancer. Thus, a negative impact is expected on the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market due to the pandemic scenario. However, with the increase in lung cancer patients worldwide, the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics will increase in the coming years. Moreover, poor lifestyle, smoking, alcohol consumption, lack of physical activity and other factors will contribute to the incidence of chronic disease such as lung cancer, including non-small cell lung, which is anticipated to increase the global non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market in the coming years.
High Healthcare Expenditure To Drive The Growth Of The Operating Room Management Market
The pandemic has led to a temporary ban on elective surgeries across the globe, which resulted in cancellations of elective surgeries worldwide. According to a report published by researchers of CovidSurg Collaborative, around 28 million surgeries were canceled across the globe during 12 weeks of peak disruption during the COVID-19 pandemic.   To handle the increased surgical volumes, hospitals are increasing OR hours and focusing on better utilization of OR. The COVID-19 will positively impact the ORM software market. It will increase the adoption rate of ORM software as most hospitals will now focus on increasing capacity by using technology to improve efficiency.  The overall cost of healthcare delivery has grown significantly over the last few decades, mainly due to increasing health insurance premiums, the rising demand for quality healthcare services, the rising geriatric population, and the increasing incidence of chronic disorders.  Another important factor attributing to rising healthcare costs is the high dependency on traditional and outdated methods such as paper-based patient records, which leads to an increase in readmission rates, medical errors, and administration costs.  Different governments and healthcare systems worldwide are now focusing on controlling rising healthcare costs by minimizing patient readmissions, medical errors, and administration costs with the effective utilization of various healthcare IT solutions. Operating rooms or ORs account for 40% of the total hospital expenses and constitute ~70% of the total revenue generated.   For More Information Download PDF Brochure @ https://www.marketsandmarkets.com/pdfdownloadNew.asp?id=175407912 The adoption of ORM solutions has been particularly affected by its high installation and maintenance costs. ORM software, when once installed, also requires to be regularly updated as per the user’s requirement and software enhancements, thereby presenting recurring expenditure. Additionally, the maintenance of high-end IT-enabled systems typically costs more than the software itself.  The annual maintenance cost is estimated to be 20-25% of the initial cost of the software licenses. Subsequently, it can be expected that the high costs incurred from the purchase, installation, maintenance, and upgrade of ORM software and solutions may negatively affect their overall adoption among end-users, thus restraining market growth to a certain extent.  Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa (BRICS) are among the fastest-growing economies in the world. According to the World Economic Forum, these emerging economies will account for around one-third of the global healthcare expenditure by 2020. More than half of the world’s population resides in India and China, owing to which these countries are home to a large patient base. The increasing burden of cancer, improvements in healthcare infrastructure, a less-stringent regulatory environment, and growing medical tourism are encouraging players in the operating room management market to increase their presence in emerging countries. Owing to the expansion of the patient population base, the number of hospitals and surgical centers is also expected to increase in emerging countries in the coming years. Also, currently, governments in these countries are undertaking initiatives to expand and modernize their respective healthcare infrastructures.  The number of independent health care providers has been decreasing as most healthcare providers are turning to mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships and are functioning under a health system rather than operating independently. On a 15-year basis, the percentage of hospitals functioning under a health system has increased from approximately 50% to approximately 65%. Today, over 70% of hospitals are operating as part of a health system rather than independently.  Data management communication solutions accounted for the largest share of the operating room management market in 2019 owing to the benefits such as easy sharing of patient status in perioperative care phases, tracking of the schedule compliance, and sharing of the media and information related to cases within different operating rooms or external hospital departments.  The high growth of this segment can primarily be attributed to advantages such as scalable data storage, scalable computing power, machine-learning capabilities, and faster data transfer between organizations of cloud platforms.

This pandemic has influenced the whole planet with its significant impacts on the economy and businesses worldwide. The COVID-19 spread worldwide in unprecedented ways due to its high infectious and contagious nature. As a result, the most outstanding medical challenge in the 21st century is yet to face physicians worldwide. Though the emergence of the virus can be tracked back to Asia, many European countries and the U.S. have been struck massively by the pandemic. The virus has spread across all regions ranging from North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa up to South America. The COVID- 19 has been declared a pandemic by World Health Organization (WHO) due to its increased spread globally. After the pandemic declaration, various countries announced the complete lockdown such as the Russia, Europe and Asian countries, to decrease its spread. Regardless of the pandemic of COVID-19, the demand for blood lancets has increased in healthcare applications. Blood lancets are scalpel-type medical instruments with a double-edged blade used for various diseases for blood diagnosis procedures in hospitals, clinics and the home healthcare arena. According to the situation report of 11th May 2021 by World Health Organization (WHO) stated 157 million cases of coronavirus patients had been reported globally and 3.3 million patients are dead due to the coronavirus. America is leading in cumulative cases with a record of 64 million and 1.5 million death rates. At the same time, nearly 1.45 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered globally. The outbreak of COVID-19 has a significant impact on the healthcare and supply chain of various medical devices and kits, including blood lancets. IMPACT ON DEMAND The COVID-19 pandemic has lifted the blood lancet market from its niche pedestal to the mainstream sector. However, even before the pandemic, blood lancets' demand was highly interested in rising chronic diseases such as diabetes, hyperlipidemia and more. For instance, · As per World Health Organization's (WHO) report released on 13th April 2021, the diabetes cases raised from 108 million to 422 million from 1980 to 2014, specifically higher in middle and low-income countries. · In 2019, 1.5 million death rates were directly estimated for diabetes.

What Impacted COVID-19 on Neurorehabilitation Devices ?
Impact of COVID-19 on Neurorehabilitation Devices in Healthcare Industry OVERVIEW AFTERMATH OF COVID-19 AND GOVERNMENT ROLE The first case of the COVID-19 pandemic was found in Wuhan, China. This pandemic has influenced the whole planet with its major impacts on the economy and businesses across the globe. The COVID-19 spread worldwide in unprecedented ways due to its high infectious and contagious nature. Various countries announced the complete lockdown just after the declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic, such as the U.S., India, Germany, and China, to protect them from the spread of the disease. The government imposed lockdown rules, and it had significantly impacted the market. The virus has spread across all regions ranging from North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Africa up to South America. The COVID-19 has been declared as a pandemic by WHO due to its increased spread across the globe. The neurorehabilitation process makes a possible reduction in impairments and disabilities and eventually improves the life of the patient. Examples of neurorehabilitation devices are invasive stimulators, non-invasive stimulators, brain-computer interfaces, and neurorobotics, among others. Current rehabilitation is supported by advanced methods based on biofeedback, transcranial brain stimulation system, and BCI system. The prevalence of neurological diseases, rise in technological advancement, the emergence of robotic rehabilitation, and the effectiveness of gaming systems in neurorehabilitation are factors that are propelling the demand of the global neurorehabilitation devices market. However, the shortage of skilled personnel, the high cost of treatment, stringent government regulation may hamper the global neurorehabilitation devices market. IMPACT ON DEMAND Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a SARS-CoV-2 virus, while a large pool of the population is affected by this COVID-19 virus. Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) causes acute respiratory illness ranges from mild to severe pneumonia with respiratory failure. In order to minimize the spread of COVID-19, nearly all the countries have taken action, such as the implementation of lockdown and social distancing restrictions. Neurorehabilitation is an important part of the recovery process that has undergone some brain injury. In the COVID-19 pandemic, various charities have worked effortlessly to provide treatment and support to patients suffering from brain injury. During the pandemic, the demand for neurorehabilitation devices was high, but companies were not able to supply the devices to end-users as various restrictions were imposed by the government, such as a travel ban, closed borders, among others. Due to affirmative restrictions, sudden shrink took place in various surgeries. Moreover, the decrease in the revenue of the key market players depicted in their quarterly results, such as Medtronic, among others, gave evidence of the decline in the demand for the medical device due to the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The product and service providers of neurorehabilitation have made efforts by providing services virtually to meet the demands as people were not frequently visiting the hospitals or clinics for the treatment. To manage such a critical situation, many organizations are looking forward to improving and diversifying the supply chain model in all aspects. Diversified supply chain model anticipated minimizing the export of medical devices as well as increase end-to-end visibility The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed many organizations’ business environments; supply availability has been hampered by a number of issues, including export and travel restrictions by some manufacturing countries and lockdowns that have forced suppliers to (temporarily) shut down. In various countries, neurorehabilitation units have reduced their number of beds, in-patients and out-patient neurorehabilitation centers are restricted to a particular area in order to tackle the pandemic situation STRATEGIC DECISIONS BY MANUFACTURERS As the reality of COVID-19 dawned upon the world, the manufactures and production units of the companies in the global neurorehabilitation devices market swiftly planned for strategies to cope with the effect of the crisis. Major players in the market took various initiatives to cope up with the situation. For instance, · In July 2020, Abbott announced that it had received FDA approval for the use of the Patient Controller App on compatible personal Apple smartphone devices. The approval will allow the patient living with neurological conditions to manage their therapy directly from the personal smartphone · In 2019, Mount Sinai Health System announced an innovative tele-neurorehabilitation program for stroke patients. This therapy can be taken by patients while at their homes with virtual backing from clinicians · In 2020, Esko Bionics Holdings, Inc. announced that it had received FDA 501(k) go-ahead to promote its EksoNRTM robotic exoskeleton for patients with acquired brain injury. It is cleared by FDA for spinal cord injury, stroke, or acquired brain injury rehabilitation These strategies helped the company in coping with the pandemic and ensure business operations, minimize the impact of COVID-19, and providing full support to the government in their efforts to combat the disease and help the front-line workers. CONCLUSION It can be concluded that the COVID-19 pandemic situation has an adverse impact on the market, affecting the price, supply, and demand of neurorehabilitation devices. However, in the crisis call, market players, government bodies, and healthcare organizations are work closely with healthcare professionals, customers, and patients for the betterment of public health. The increasing need of neurorehabilitation devices with increasing number of neurological diseases is expected to drive the market in coming years. The market is expected to decline due to increased restrictions imposed by various governments leading to the closing of non-emergent healthcare facilities, including procedures such as neurorehabilitation procedures.

7 Popular Types of Psychotherapy for a Variety of Mental Health Issues
Psychotherapy Overview: Individualized psychotherapy consultations frequently contain a discussion between experienced therapists and patients about specific encounters, thoughts, relationships, existing issues, and feelings to maintain a connection and provide understanding.  A few investigations showed individualized psychotherapy discussions end up being profitable in reducing psychological symptoms. For this reason, psychotherapy has developed into a diverse and well-known treatment for multiple psychiatric problems.  Couples, groups, and families use psychotherapy to determine psychological disorders. A mix of medication and therapy effectively handled several mental health problems.  There are a few kinds of talking therapy, however, they require working with experienced psychotherapists. These therapies assist you in determining the source of your problem. Talking therapy may incorporate one-to-one conversation, group conversation, online counsel, over a telephone conversation, in family, and with your partner.  Psychotherapy can help with complications, comprising adapting to day-by-day life; the effect of injury, clinical disease, or misfortune, similar to the passing of a friend or family member; and explicit mental problems, similar to anxiety and depression.

Specialists isolated psychotherapy into two sorts: short-term and long-term. A short-term therapy session comprises a couple of sessions to manage minor problems.  Long-term therapy session involves months or a long time of sessions to handle chronic and complicated issues. The patient and specialist mutually plan the objectives of treatment and courses of action. Psychotherapy Types: There are various kinds of psychotherapy. The choice of treatment relied upon the patient’s mental ailment, adherence to the treatment, and inclination since psychotherapy turns out better for one individual, however, not for someone else. Psychotherapists join every one component and suggest such treatment that meets the prerequisites of the patients. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT (Cognitive-behavioral therapy) is a type of psychotherapy that evaluates the connections between a person’s thoughts, conduct, feelings, and sentiments.  CBT can help you investigate and change how you consider your life, allowing you to break free from negative musings and undesirable practices.  Psychotherapists and their patients work together to establish productive solutions to overcome self-destructive practices and beliefs by analyzing such problematic thought patterns.  CBT, according to a few studies, can be utilized to treat a variety of psychiatric issues including Depression and Anxiety disorders Panic attacks and Phobias Bipolar Disorders Eating disorders (especially bulimia nervosa) Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) Schizophrenia Post-traumatic stress disorder Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): Dialectal behavior therapy (DBT) is another type of psychotherapy and is related to cognitive-behavioral treatment (CBT).  Its accentuation on revealing approval, grieved musings, tolerating undesirable considerations, sentiments, and feelings as opposed to managing them.  Experts initially developed DBT to treat persistently self-destructive patients with borderline personality disorder (BPD).  Over the long haul, therapists used DBT for treating different emotional well-being messes. Individuals who are treated with DBT have BPD as an essential finding.  Advisors use DBT to foster adopting procedures to manage the circumstance and assist them with learning the harmony among change and acknowledgment.  An article identified with the Mental Health Clinician shows DBT diminished clinical consideration and prescription up to 90%.

Real World Evidence Are Used To Monitor The Post Market Safety and Adverse Events of Drugs
The emergence of this pandemic has posed severe financial constraints on pharma-biopharma companies in several countries. In this regard, RWE solutions have proven to be very helpful, as they allow industrial and academic researchers to monitor patients using digitally connected platforms while helping to organize and evaluate clinical data for regulatory submissions. The uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically shifted how and when patients decide to seek medical care. In addition, shifts in healthcare coverage and provision during the pandemic have changed the discovery and reporting of certain outcomes in data and the treated population. This means that disease trends may lead to incorrect interpretations when RWD and RWE are not framed in the context of the pandemic and long-term COVID-19 disease, therapy, and lifestyle changes.   RWE is set to become the most influential emerging technology to help in the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak, according to the latest poll on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Technology website. In this poll, which was completed by 935 of its readers in April 2021, more than one-third of the respondents indicated that RWE would have the greatest impact on the management of COVID-19.  Even though emerging technologies, such as telemedicine, have existed for decades, most of healthcare systems rely heavily on in-person interactions between patients and clinicians. Nevertheless, the current requirement for social distancing measures is swiftly pushing the primary care provision toward remote care. Telemedicine and virtual care may also prompt a greater adoption of technologies such as wearables and digital therapeutics, thus accelerating digitalization in the healthcare space and boosting the importance of RWE and AI.  Download PDF Brochure @ https://www.marketsandmarkets.com/pdfdownloadNew.asp?id=76173991 The utilization of RWE in infectious disease control is not a new concept. During the Ebola outbreak in 2014, forecasters successfully used Global Epidemic and Mobility (GLEaM) simulations that combined real-world data on populations and their mobility with rigorous stochastic models of disease transmission to predict the global spread of the disease.  In countries with strict data privacy laws, the implications of contact-tracing apps on individual privacy are considered a major associated concern. While cryptographers are currently working on improving tracing apps to address the issue, tracking apps can only be effective when they are used by a significant proportion of the population. Therefore, it is critical that the functionality and safety of these applications are considered acceptable by the majority of the population.  Through the analysis of the data generated from various networks, healthcare organizations can benefit from sensible information, resulting in real-time disease monitoring and control. However, as the use of technology as a means to produce more and more data to drive insights and foresight increases, the ability to automate and analyze that data becomes a necessity. Accelerated digitalization in the healthcare space has revealed gaps in infrastructure, workforce, and digital education that ultimately need to be bridged.   Real World Evidence Solutions Market Dynamics Without intelligent analytics, RWE alone will not be able to produce meaningful and actionable results. Previously, the healthcare industry did not have the ability to gather RWE at the speed and scale needed to address urgent public health crises. However, this scenario has changed due to the pandemic. Advances in analytics and access to broad and diverse real-world data sets have made it possible to rapidly analyze data as it is captured to better understand how pandemics like COVID-19 are unfolding.  The pre-approved use of RWE in efficacy decisions is being carried out currently, and there is potential for it to be used more broadly, such as in oncology, rare diseases, and pediatric conditions when randomized controlled clinical trials are impossible or unethical to conduct. In parallel, legislators are recognizing the value of RWE. In the US, the 21st Century Cures Act, passed in December 2016, has established public-private partnerships to collect data and improve the understanding of diseases. 
How Impacted COVID-19 on Neural Implant in Healthcare Industry ?
Impact of COVID-19 on Neural Implant in Healthcare Industry The COVID-19 pandemic has stood as a complex challenge in front of several healthcare companies and proved to be a global health threat. The first case of the COVID-19 pandemic was found in Wuhan, China. This virus had emerged in December 2019 and has been proven as a global pandemic by WHO in March 2020. Patients with other respiratory disorders such as Chronic Bronchitis, Lung Cancer, and Pneumonia are more susceptible to COVID-19. This pandemic has created a health crisis, and it has adversely affected our economies, healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors, and their core. As the number of COVID-19 (coronavirus) cases continues to rise in the U.S., Russia, France, and Brazil, life-threatening and rare brain diseases are being linked to the infection. This has brought companies in the brain implants market into the picture since their assistance is crucial in the already stressed healthcare facilities. Neural implant technology is highly innovative and is expected to influence the existing treatment modalities of neuropathic disorders and chronic neuropathic pain. The introduction of neural implants has been a significant breakthrough because of their high potential in minimizing the occurrence of adverse events associated with Parkinson's disease, chronic pain, epilepsy, and other neural disorders. Therefore, the adoption of neural implants is likely to increase at a phenomenal rate in the coming years. Healthcare professionals were often redeployed to emergency patterns of working, sometimes outside of their usual scope of practice. Thus, the urgent and routine care for millions of patients with non-COVID illnesses has been interrupted. IMPACT ON DEMAND The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a significant impact on the growth of the brain implants market globally, due to the suspension and postponement of most of the elective surgeries and treatment during the pandemic, to reserve the hospital infrastructure and staff in treating COVID-19, infected patients. According to the research article published in medRXiV, 2021, the prevalence of SARS-COV2 viral infection in patients with Parkinson's disease was found to be 11.28% and COVID-19 prevalence in Parkinson's disease patients with deep brain stimulation was found to be 18.18%. Additionally, as per the research study published in Frontiers in Neurology, 2020, the motor and psychiatric symptoms in Parkinson's Disease patients and dystonic patients treated with Deep Brain Stimulation was observed to have worsened during the lockdown restriction measure, and further, this had led to increased stress in the management of neurological disorders. Additionally, according to the research article published in JAMA Neurology, 2020, among 214 patients with COVID-19, neurologic symptoms were seen in 36.4% of patients. Thus, patients suffering from COVID-19 are prone to a high risk of developing neurological disorders during their hospital stays. Thus, owing to the strict lockdown restrictions and measures taken to contain the viral transmission, the chronic stress and burden of neurological disorders had increased, which required the urgent opening of the neurological outpatient services, and thus, the brain implants market is expected to have impacted significantly during the pandemic. The increase in the number of cases of neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, depression, and essential tremors, is anticipated to propel the demand for brain implants. Brain implants are likely to reduce the need for drugs that relieve chronic pain and improve body movement in patients suffering from Parkinson’s or any other neurological disease. The growing geriatric population is also prone to order surgical disorders and thus, aging is the major factor that is driving the market growth for brain implants. According to the United Nations, World Population Ageing 2019 report, more than 703 million people were aged 65 years and above in 2019 and are expected to reaching 1.5 billion by 2050. IMPACT ON SUPPLY Due to the pertinacious COVID-19 lockdown in various countries, sanctions have been forced by administrations of different nations. These limitations and boundaries across the nation’s borders prompted a diminishing stockpile because of restricted materials and labor force and the halting of the assembly line. It has been found that certain individuals in their late ’50s are at risk of developing acute necrotizing encephalitis, which is a rare complication of influenza and other viral infections. This has fueled the growth of brain implants to maintain steady supply chains to meet the demand. Acute necrotizing encephalitis has the potential to cause seizures and confusion, and in serious cases, can lead to coma. This has triggered the need for developing strong research databases to address complications of COVID-19. STRATEGIC DECISIONS BY MANUFACTURERS The presence of key players in the region and the increasing number of product approvals is expected to drive the studied market growth. For instance, · In June 2020, US FDA approved Medtronic plc's Percept deep brain stimulation (DBS) for the treatment of Parkinson’s symptoms. The major market players are focusing on technological advancement to acquire maximum market share. For instance, · In January 2021, Abbott Laboratories launched its NeuroSphere my Path, a Digital Health app that was developed to track and report on pain relief in chronic pain patients and general well-being associated with spinal cord stimulation (SCS) or dorsal root ganglion (DRG) therapy. · In March 2021, Abbott Laboratories announced the launch of NeuroSphere Virtual Clinic, which is a remote neuromodulation patient-care technology in the United States. · In March 2020, LivaNova plc received CE Mark approval for its Vagus Nerve Stimulation Therapy (VNS Therapy) System, "Symmetry", for Difficult-to-Treat Depression (DTD). · BrainCom— a collaborative research project that aims to develop a new generation of neuroprosthetic devices is being funded by the European Union under the FET Proactive funding scheme to advance speech neural prostheses. Companies in the brain implants market are increasing the availability of solutions for people suffering from motor diseases and neurological conditions. Such implants are bolstering market growth, as they have the potential to eliminate the need for open brain surgeries. · Dell Technologies— a U.S. multinational computer technology company is gaining strong business grounds in transformative technologies for brain implants by collaborating with think tanks and neuroscientists. In June 2018, Medtronic plc announced that the US Food and Drug Administration approved Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Clinician Programmer and Activa(TM) Programming Application. The Activa Programming Application has been uniquely designed with the input of over a hundred clinicians from around the world and is managed on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablet interface. In February 2016, ALEVA NEUROTHERAPEUTICS SA announced a collaboration with Greatbatch for a next-generation device for Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). Under the terms of the development agreement, Greatbatch’s design and development team QiG Group, which is expected to be spun off as Nuvectra Corporation, will provide Aleva with access to its unique implantable neurostimulation platform. Companies in the brain implants market are increasing the availability of less invasive solutions since the brain is one of the most delicate and sensitive body organs. They are decoding the symphony of neural activity to stimulate brain function. CONCLUSION Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to almost every country around the globe with the World Health Organization declaring it a public health emergency. The global impacts of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are already starting to be felt, and will significantly affect the Brain Implants market in 2020.

COVID-19 Impact on Primary Pulmonary Hypertension (PPH) Treatment in Healthcare Industry | Data Bridge Market Research
COVID-19 Impact on Primary Pulmonary Hypertension (PPH) Treatment in Healthcare Industry Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and, thus, being a novel cause of sepsis. COVID-19 is a type of ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome) that originated in Wuhan, China. Due to its highly infectious nature, this disease is still spreading throughout the world. Although vaccines are now available in the market, due to various challenge (large scale manufacturing of novel vaccine, national vaccination protocol, availability of the vaccine, new variants of COVID-19, lesser quarantine strictness), it has not been able to slow down or stop the virus from spreading globally. In the treatment of COVID-19 patients with ARDS, Prostacyclin (a vasodilator), primarily known for treating pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), has shown promising results in many studies. Price Impact COVID-19 pandemic has a huge impact on every market globally. The cases of PAH are rising in the range of 100,000 to 200,000 per year. However, in the past few years, PAH has been increasing due to risk factors such as alcohol/tobacco consumption, HIV, sedentary lifestyle, smoking, and other idiopathic conditions. Increasing yearly demands and using Prostacyclin in the treatment of ARDS (COVID-19) patients has affected all major manufacturers of the drug. For instance: · Remodulin (Treprostinil) a drug sold by United Therapeutics Corporation. A standard single dose of 20 milliliters 1 mg/ml Remodulin cost has gone from USD 45 (2017) to USD 69.94 (2021) Prostacyclin manufacturing leaders (United Therapeutics Corporation, Janssen, GlaxoSmithKline, and Sandoz) worldwide face export restrictions that directly affect the product's market cost. An additional increase in demands due to COVID-19 treatment is anticipated to impact significantly the forecast period. Impact on Demand There is no specific and approved treatment to treat the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), apart from prevention by social distancing and, now, using vaccination. However, inhalation of prostacyclin vasodilator has been shown to work synergistically with COVID-19 medication to recover ARDS patients on ventilators. Coupled with the uncapped spread of the virus. For instance: · Hamad Medical Corporation - Inhaled Iloprost (Phase II) for Suspected COVID-19 Respiratory Failure (ILOCOVID) Moreover, the geriatric population is more prone to PAH and associated diseases owing to reduced immune function. According to the National Council on Aging (NCOA), about 80% of the population aged 65 and above have at least one chronic condition: high cholesterol, diabetes, heart or kidney disease, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Hence the market for global PPH treatment is speculated to boom in the forecasted period. Impact on Supply Chain COVID-19 restrictions and lockdown have affected the supply chain of all manufacturing firms globally. Prostacyclin (Europe and Asia-Pacific) primary manufacturer was under complete lockdown, causing manufacturers to shut down (temporarily) supply chains. For instance: · By the end of July 2020, nearly 90 countries had introduced export restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the WTO. Since January 2020, countries have taken more than 197 actions banning or limiting the export of certain products, according to Global Trade Alert · Overall, the U.S. exports to the world were down USD 8.47 billion when comparing the first two months of 2021 to the same period of 2019 To tackle these unique challenges, manufacturers are looking for innovative ideas and complete re-thinking of supply chains. Remote work has been another unique restraint put forth by mandatory lockdown, which requires a completely novel approach towards supply chain processes. Strategic Decisions for Manufacturers Sudden demand surge and lockdown caused temporary roadblocks. The shutdown of international transport and supply chains also requires immediate remedies. Manufacturers, to combat challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, devised various ideas. New product launches, remote working environment, recommencing supply chain manufacturing with social distancing restrictions are some strategic decisions made by manufacturers For instance: · Beth Rhodes, Vice President, Global Supply Chain & Alliance Management at United Therapeutics said, “We are excited to bring to market the first subcutaneous pump designed specifically for PAH patients. Remunity is a small, discreet pump that delivers Remodulin in prefilled cassettes that are delivered directly to patients, offering significant improvements over current subcutaneous pumps” – CONCLUSION It is predicted that COVID-19 has a major impact on the primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) treatment market. Increased PPH drugs (Remodulin, Flolan, Veletri, Ventavis) and strict trade policies globally have pushed manufacturers into considering new and compatible market strategies. However, increase the prevalence of pulmonary hypertension, robust drug pipeline, and changing lifestyle, drives the global primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) treatment market. Moreover, technological advancement in treatment & diagnosis and growing genetic mutation-related disorders also boost up market growth. But adverse effects related to the treatment, unknown causes behind the disease, and difficulty in diagnosis of primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) treatment may hamper the global Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) treatment market.
Cleanroom Technology Market to Witness Impressive Growth
The increasing demand in developing economies and the growing focus on energy-efficient cleanrooms are expected to offer significant opportunities for market growth in the coming years. However, the high operational cost associated with the cleanrooms is expected to restrain market growth to a certain extent.  The global health crisis triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic has made it imperative that the pharmaceutical industry moves at a rapid pace alongside researchers, regulators, and contract research companies to develop a diagnosis, treatment, and vaccines. Cleanroom technologies and services play an important role in this scenario to ensure that quality, safety, and efficacy are being maintained.  In the current scenario, the healthcare industry is witnessing an unparalleled demand for diagnostic tests, personal protective equipment (PPE), medical ventilators, and other critical medical supplies. Facing the potentiality of a high risk of infection, healthcare professionals (HCPs) are also facing significant challenges in providing specific and effective care (often remotely).  In Hospital systems are becoming overwhelmed with the rapidly increasing number of COVID-19 patients, which is weighing heavily on the pharmaceutical industry. With the increasing demand for certified products, various quality certifications such as ISO checks and National Safety and Quality Health Standards (NSQHS) have been made mandatory for ensuring that the standards for manufacturing processes and products are being upheld. The quality certifications require products to be processed in a cleanroom environment to ensure minimum possible contamination.   Also, the price per square foot is not the same for ISO 6 and ISO 8 cleanrooms. This is because the amount of air supplied is different in both classes of cleanrooms. The air is 100 times cleaner in an ISO 6 cleanroom than in an ISO 8 cleanroom, thereby doubling the air conditioning capacity of the HVAC systems.   For More Information Download PDF Brochure @ https://www.marketsandmarkets.com/pdfdownloadNew.asp?id=263122482 Cleanrooms are mostly designed according to customer requirements based on product specifications and customer-specific design requirements. However, there are no specific guidelines for cleanroom designs for different application areas or product types. This leads to several challenges for cleanroom manufacturers, as they need to follow different designs every time.  The consumables segment accounted for the larger market share in 2019. The high and growing number of pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device companies facilitating the use of disposable protective clothing has resulted in the increased adoption of the consumables in the cleanroom technologies market. Also, the large number of RD activities in the healthcare industry is resulting in a stable demand for cleanroom consumables among end-users.   The hardwall cleanrooms segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the higher demand for hardwall cleanrooms, as they are more design-flexible than standard and softwall cleanrooms, quick and easy to install, freestanding for easy portability, and easy to expand or reconfigure.   This is due to its favorable government regulations, increasing healthcare expenditure, and the growing base of pharma companies in the country, all of which are driving adoption of cleanroom solutions in the Asia Pacific.
