Healthcare IT refers to the offering of IT solutions to the healthcare industry. Healthcare IT solutions provide improved management of data and safe exchange of health related information with government, patients, consumers and insurers. Healthcare IT solutions witness a massive demand for general applications including medical record system and electronic health along with computerized physician order entry system. It also provides specialized solutions such as clinical trials management system, data mining system and clinical decision support system. Moreover, several software solutions such as e-prescribing systems, hospital information systems, ambulatory care management systems, patient management systems, etc are being widely adopted by hospitals and clinics in order to deliver improved and efficient care for patients. The advantages of adopting healthcare IT solutions result in reduction in healthcare cost, decline in medical errors and increased successful medical procedure outcomes coupled with growth in productivity of health care.
For example, the government of U.S. passed various regulatory norms and acts thus focusing on endorsement of e-healthcare by both private and public sector units, hence decreasing the healthcare costs. In addition, the commencement of cloud computing in healthcare industry has further attenuated the overall real-time exchange of data. Owing to the fast transformation witnessed in developed economies such as the US in North America and EU5 countries in Europe, the outsourcing of information technology to several other countries wherein relatively cheaper solutions can be achieved has been greatly exploited by key market players. Other countries such as China, India, Singapore and Indonesia are declared as the major information technology outsourcing centers, thus serving other nations in keeping down the their IT expenses. The key areas where healthcare IT solutions can be deployed include pharmaceutical research, biomedical research, proteomics and genetics as well as life science information technology, bio-simulation, disease research, biotechnology and others. Application of healthcare IT in forensics and insurance is a rising trend.
Growing demand for adherence of regulatory guidelines is a key factor driving the growth of global healthcare IT market. Rising initiatives by governments for high return on investment, e-health coupled with rising needs to retrench escalating costs of healthcare. Moreover, scarcity of knowledge of in-house information technology domain as well as reluctance among various end users to adopt new trends are some major factors hampering the growth of healthcare IT market.
The global healthcare IT market is bifurcated on the basis of product type, end-user and geography. Considering product type, the global healthcare IT market is segmented into healthcare provider solutions, healthcare payer solutions and healthcare IT outsourcing services.
