Healthcare IT Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a neutral impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The rising need for automation across departments is notably driving the healthcare IT market growth, although factors such as vulnerability of EMR toward cybercrime may impede market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the healthcare IT industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Healthcare IT Market Driver

One of the key factors driving the healthcare IT market growth is the rising need for automation across departments. The average human lifespan is increasing with the improving quality of healthcare services. With augmenting lifespan, chronic diseases, and the world population, the number of patients and the time of treatment are also increasing. Moreover, the growing awareness of health-related cautions and the trending healthy living are prompting the general population in keeping a check on their health. However, there is a dire need to reduce the per-patient time of a doctor and to increase the efficiency of treatment. IT plays a significant role in automating the treatment process right from the admission of patients, data collection on their medical history, storage of the collected data, examining patients, creating transcripts of doctors comments and medication instruction, pharmaceutical workflow, and after-treatment follow-ups to the transferring of patients and their relevant medical records. The automation of healthcare workflow reduces cost, time, and effort and subsequently improves the efficiency and quality of treatment. Since automation solutions are playing an important role in increasing the efficiency and quality and reducing the time and effort of all the healthcare stakeholders, providers are increasing their investments in such solutions.

Key Healthcare IT Market Trend

Another key factor driving healthcare IT market growth is the healthcare providers and government agencies leveraging social media analytics. At present, doctors are using social media tools such as Twitter and Facebook to reach out to other specialists and discuss medical cases and learn from their peers experiences. They are also exploring the content published on social media pages of pharmaceutical companies to gain knowledge on the status of ongoing clinical trials. Similarly, government agencies across the world are leveraging social media analytics as a source to determine accurate public health statistics. For instance, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the US-based public health reporting agency, has a well laid out social media strategy and is present in many Internet platforms (including Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook). CDC uses podcasts tools such as podcasts, widgets, and ecards to connect to other users on the social media platform. CDC then extracts information and analyzes it through responses to their posts. This is helping the CDC in detecting and track infectious disease outbreaks in real time and at a very low cost (as these tools are free to use).

Key Healthcare IT Market Challenge

Vulnerability of EMR toward cybercrime is one of the key challenges hindering the healthcare IT market growth. Advances in technologies are encouraging online data storage. At present, the healthcare industry extensively relies on IT and electronic communications for the ease of managing a large amount of data. However, the same advances in technology also make data vulnerable to cybercrime. The incidents of cybercrime include hacking of computers and in-house software as well as intrusion into the intranet portals. The healthcare industry data such as medical transcriptions of doctors, personal and insurance details of patients, and treatment and medication information of patients are private and important to patients and hospitals. The data should be accurate for healthcare providers to communicate appropriate insights on patients. Through cyberattacks, data can be hacked, modified, or misused. In the recent past, there have been security issues related to medical data. For instance, in May 2019, an employee of Montpellier university hospital opened a mail containing a virus. The virus phished more than 600 computers. Therefore, the vulnerability to cybercrimes and the lack of proper security systems are posing a significant threat to the global healthcare IT market.

This healthcare IT market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.

COVID Impact and Recovery Analysis

The outbreak of COVID-19 adversely affected all countries in North America, especially the US. As of August 30, 2020, more than 39.66 million COVID-19 cases were reported in the US. A rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in the first quarter of 2020 and early 2021 led to partial lockdowns in several countries, including Canada and Mexico. The lockdowns across many countries had a minimal effect on the growth of the regional healthcare IT market in 2020. Moreover, the demand for healthcare IT increased, as people started maintaining social distancing. This also increased the demand for virtual medical consultancy and e-prescribing systems. For instance, in April 2020, OptumServe, the federal health services business of Optum, partnered with the California state in the US to increase the testing for COVID-19 in the state communities. The new findings, in conjunction with nasal sampling, allow for greater flexibility in obtaining samples, reduce the risk of infection to clinicians in collecting samples, and limit the need for clinicians to use protective equipment. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic boosted the growth of the healthcare IT market in North America in 2020. The trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.
