The per-encounter healthcare model differs from the traditional fee-for-service model in that it is provided for each patient visit. The patient will thus incur the same expense for each visit regardless of duration or complexity. This method is different from capitation and fee-for-service models. The fee-for-service concept states that patients should pay doctors and hospitals for each service they provide. As long-term health problems like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and musculoskeletal ailments become more common, surgical treatments, diagnostic tests, and checkups will be in high demand. Intravenous catheters, drainage bags, syringes, and needles are becoming more popular as single-use per-encounter medical devices.

The per-encounter devices industry is seeing constant innovation due to technological breakthroughs in medical devices. Modern materials such as metal alloys, tailored polymers, and silicone enable better designs for gadgets with a single usage. 3D printing and similar technologies make it possible to create individualized devices. However, recycling single-use plastic bags is risky and against the law due to factors including inadequate sanitation. Despite regulations discouraging it and harming their market chances, individuals are driven to reuse due to cost concerns.

Market Dynamics:

The growing demand for the per-encounter medical market is fueled by the increasing number of older adults worldwide. An increase in both outpatient and inpatient medical care is associated with ageing because the elderly are at greater risk of acute and chronic illnesses. This increase in the number of people who can benefit from diagnostic and therapeutic procedures increases the need for single-use medical equipment such as prefilled syringes, test kits, and surgical blades. An ageing population is anticipated to drive market expansion.

The prime challenge is strict regulations, a shortage of competent individuals and a lack of norms and protocol because of lockdowns and isolation in emerging countries, which is predicted to slow the growth of the per-encounter medical market. Regulatory authorities impose tough standards for medical device licensing and compliance, which hinders product development and commercialization. Complications such as post-market surveillance, quality management system requirements, and lengthy approval processes for clinical data drive up costs and limit product pipeline flexibility. As a result, newer per-encounter gadgets cannot be introduced, reducing their market potential. The medical equipment business has been greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. There is a severe shortage of masks, ventilators, and testing at hospitals because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Because medical device makers are struggling to meet the unexpectedly high demand, there is a mismatch between the supply and demand for personal protective equipment (PPE). 

Regional Trends:
The North American per-encounter medical market is anticipated to register a major market revenue share. It is projected to grow at a high CAGR in the near future because of the generous healthcare system, the significant prevalence of chronic diseases, and the favourable reimbursement policies in the region. Besides, Europe had a considerable share in the market because of the prevalence of key market participants, the growing number of elderly patients, and the popularity of less invasive surgical procedures in the area.
