Hospital Information System Market Growth & Trends
The global hospital information system market size is expected to reach USD 405.6 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 17.4% from 2023 to 2030. Hospital information systems are being increasingly adopted to improve operational efficiency in the legal, administrative, and financial tasks in hospital facilities, which is one of the key factors driving industry growth. Moreover, increasing awareness about advanced IT services and rising demand to curb the growing healthcare costs are other key drivers of the industry. Several benefits associated with HIS, such as lower healthcare expenditure and higher operational efficiency of the systems, are expected to boost the adoption of IT solutions in healthcare facilities.
Hospital information solutions aid in reducing medical and administration errors. Electronic Health Records (EHRs), electronic medical records, patient engagement solutions, and population health management are the key types of information systems registering high adoption among end-users. The growing need for efficient management of a large volume of healthcare data generated and its accessibility by medical practitioners is also driving market growth. Furthermore, IT companies and healthcare settings are entering into collaborations and partnerships to curb the rising costs, streamline data storage, and effectively use data analytics for better healthcare delivery and outcomes coupled with efficient management and distribution of patient data.
For instance, in August 2022, Augmedix partnered with Adventist, the partnership will provide physicians with automated medical documentation, which will help reduce the burden on the physicians. Increasing initiatives undertaken by various governments to promote the adoption of the HIS are expected to boost the growth of the industry during the forecast period. The increased healthcare spending by the governments globally is also expected to positively contribute to the growth of this industry. For instance, the Australian Government spent USD 98.3 billion in 2021-22.
Electronic Health Records Market Growth & Trends
The global electronic health records market size is expected to reach USD 38.5 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.0% from 2022 to 2030. The web-based electronic health records (EHRs) are anticipated to show the largest growth during the forecast period. These EHRs are convenient for use in pharmacies, small-scaled laboratories, and clinics, as they require limited hardware infrastructure, which reduces the cost of installation.
EHR vendors and organizations have initiated to help in curbing the pandemic by making telehealth a mainstream alternative, enhancing data access through EHRs, and collaborating to develop COVID-19 dashboards in detail. The introduction of EHRs for medical coding and billing has eased the process as data entering into computerized systems is more convenient than paper-based methods. EHRs also minimize the risk of errors in patient data as well as financial details. As per the University of Michigan, the cost of outpatient care was reduced by 3% upon shifting to EHRs from paper-based records. This reduction resulted in USD 5.14 savings per patient per month.
Additionally, M&A activities by market players are also boosting the market growth. For instance, in February 2021, Evident, LLC, a subsidiary of CPSI announced that Texas-based Curahealth Hospitals and Cobalt Rehabilitation, have selected the Evident EHR along with collection services TruBridge, for three new rehabilitation facilities located in Denver, Colorado; West Houston, Texas; and San Antonio, Texas. Key players in the EHR market are investing in the launch of new products and collaborations for sustaining in the market. For instance, in August 2020, Cerner Corporation collaborated with Amazon to integrate its EHR solutions with the latter’s wearables such as Amazon Halo. This would provide greater interoperability to its customers and strengthen its service portfolio.
Patient Engagement Solutions Market Growth & Trends
The global patient engagement solutions market size is expected to reach USD 70.3 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 17.4% from 2022 to 2030. The key factors fueling the market growth include rising digitalization across healthcare, increasing prevalence of chronic conditions, and technological advancements. The COVID-19 pandemic boosted digitalization across healthcare. This, in turn, has fueled the awareness and adoption of patient engagement solutions, thus propelling the market growth.
As healthcare providers were battling with the constant upsurge in cases, patients were looking to digital technologies for care delivery and monitoring. This contributed to the market growth. Various key companies released multiple COVID-19-related features as part of their patient engagement lineup to enhance their offerings. In December 2020, athenahealth released new features to its athenaOne platform-such as scheduling, workflow, documentation, and reporting capabilities-to enable immediate administration of COVID-19 vaccines as and when they become available.
The necessity of social distancing resulted in the demand for remote patient monitoring solutions, along with the prerequisite for the precise and timely exchange of patient wellbeing records. The pandemic has also made healthcare professionals look for alternate methods to traditional processes and systems. As a result, market participants had come up with COVID-19-related features into their existing patient engagement solutions. For instance, in June 2020, Orion Health partnered with a network of more than 350 healthcare facilities called Keystone Health Information Exchange to enable real-time automated COVID-19 reporting for improved public health data collection across Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
As per a survey by Twilio, a provider of cloud communications and customer engagement, 68% of respondents reported accelerated digitalization in their organizations due to COVID-19. Companies reported easing of barriers at organization levels such as getting executive approvals, lack of clear strategy, and reluctance to replace legacy software. In fact, according to the Chief Product Officer at Mount Sinai Health System, their newly developed textâ€‘toâ€‘chat platform witnessed a 10x surge in volume due to the pandemic. The growing number of smartphone users around the globe expedited the adoption of digital health technologies across the sector both from providers and consumers, which, in turn, has augmented the dependability of patients on mHealth apps.
Moreover, in March 2019, the American Medical Association entered into a collaboration with Patient Point with the aim to access point of care to help prevent the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes. Using PatientPoint technology, approximately 6,500 practicing doctors across the U.S. are expected to educate individuals regarding disease prevention. Programs such as these are expected to fuel the market growth over the forecast period.

Population Health Management Market Growth & Trends
The global population health management market size is expected to reach USD 280.8 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 21.9% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The need for population health services that combine multiple functionalities is increasing due to the complex nature of care delivery and payment models. Population Health Management (PHM) solutions can process clinical, financial, and operational data that help improve efficiency and patient care. The health management program is also witnessing changes in medical reimbursement due to the increasing emphasis on value-based payment models and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs).
The COVID-19 pandemic has intensified the need for social distance among physicians and other healthcare workers, driving the need for population health management solutions and the correct and timely transmission of patient health information and claims data for patients with chronic diseases. PHM provides effective tools in this regard, including a framework for the secure transmission, sharing, and retrieval of electronic health information and claims data. For clinical and financial decision-making, these technologies enable the smooth transmission and analysis of health-related data between healthcare institutions and patients.
