Electronic Health Records Market

Over 50% of Market Demand to be captured by Web-based Electronic Health Records, Projects Fact.MR

Published : 22 Feb 2022 Industry: Technology

A recently published study by Fact.MR projects that the global electronic health records market is expected to flourish at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2022 to 2032, reaching US$ 41.8 Bn by the end of the aforementioned assessment period. Extensive digitization of healthcare brought about by complicating patient care and workflows is driving market demand.

From 2015 to 2021, demand for web-based EHRs expanded at a CAGR of 3%, being valued at US$ 26 Bn. Web-based electronic health records (EHRs) are anticipated to exhibit maximum adoption. 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. Prospects further heightened during the COVID-19 pandemic, as the need to maintain social distancing prompted increased automation of hospital workflows.

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 market growth.
