What’s Driving Adoption of Electronic Health Record Solutions in the U.S.?
“Prominent Role of EHRs in Reducing Administrative & Regulatory Burden”
Adoption of electronic health records has risen over the years on the back of rising initiatives by the government to implement strategies that promote a reduction in administrative and regulatory burdens with the use of EHRs by medical practitioners.
For instance, the implementation of the Cures Act is designed to accelerate medical product development and incorporate innovations and advances for patients.
Modernization of clinical trial designs with the use of Real-World Data (RWD) and Real-World Evidence (RWE) can help in the reduction of required documentation and improve regulatory flexibility. Such initiatives are anticipated to augment the demand for electronic health record software and solutions across the U.S. over the coming years.
“Augmented Role & Application of EHR in Healthcare Information Systems”
Rising demand for strong Health Information Technology (HIT) to provide care of supreme quality at reduced costs is being witnessed. EHRs are now being considered an effective part of healthcare information systems. The role and application of EHR in clinical applications and healthcare systems are rising to gather valuable health information and data, management, decision supports, order entry, etc.
Furthermore, the use of EHR in healthcare financing and administrative applications is likely to support electronic health records market demand growth by ~17% over the decade.
These factors are expected to positively impact market demand for electronic health records in the United States over the coming years.
