Factors fuelling the growth

The healthcare industry has always had the need for cutting-edge technology for patient monitoring and treatments and since its approach is also changing from being clinic-centric to patient-centric models, such as preventative care, remote patient monitoring, home healthcare and telemedicine, demands are on the rise, giving birth to a robust healthcare IT market. Furthermore, since IT has capabilities to enhance clinical and administrative workflow, the healthcare market is reducing the overall operating costs and improving its delivery. Moreover, low-cost IT solutions, financing programs and interoperable solutions have always been the main concerns of the top healthcare IT solution providers. Despite the healthcare industry being slow in technology adoption, innovative IT solutions have reduced medical errors and come across as an effective solution encouraging the healthcare IT market growth further.

Key areas of growth

With the significant rise in demand for medical care, there has been an increase in the chances of error in diagnosis and claim settlements.

EMR currently has the largest market share and is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 16.7% from 2010 to 2015, while CPOE is expected to see a growth of 16.5% during the same period. Other key IT solutions that will see rapid growth of CAGR 15.1% is point of care information systems, specialty care information systems (like oncology information systems and cardiovascular information systems) surgical and intensive care information systems.
