North America Clinical Alarm Management Marketsize and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The Making Health Care Safer (MHCS) reports from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) emphasize implementing safety culture elements, risk assessments, and training to reduce alarm burden and improve overall patient care. Owing to false alarms, the true alarms that are supposed to alert clinicians of the real problems with patients are ignored sometimes. This drives the demand for such solutions. Various benefits of alarm management solutions are also likely to increase their demand, which will support market growth.

These benefits are clinical, operational, as well as financial. Clinical benefits comprise improved patient and family satisfaction, enhanced sleep & rest, and reduction in non-actionable alarms & gaps in alarm protocol. This also enhances patient safety along with possibly fewer missed true positive alarms. Operational benefits include decreased alarm fatigue, staff satisfaction, less burnout, improved productivity, and better use of nursing resources.

Financial benefits include reduced staff turnover, decreased patient length of stay, and preventable patient harm & potentially costly repercussions from ICU transfers, extended span of stay, & litigation. If dealt with the necessary effort, these issues can be resolved by the companies. Furthermore, technology has a notable impact on the healthcare system, from medical billing to medical management. Increasing efforts by key companies to differentiate themselves from competitors have led to a rise in technological advancements at the lowest cost possible, which has eventually led to market growth.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market growth stage is high, and is operating at an accelerating pace. The market is characterized by a high degree of innovation. The role of alarms in hospital settings continues to evolve in innovative ways. For instance, alarm management solutions offered by Philips include continuous patient monitoring systems, Patient Information Center iX (PIC iX [Central monitoring system]), and the CareEvent system.

Clinical Alarm Management Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market is also characterized by a high level of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity by leading players. For instance, in April 2023, Mobile Heartbeat collaborated with Akkadian Labs to integrate Akkadian Provisioning Manager with MH-CURE. This partnership is focused on simplifying the provisioning process for Mobile Heartbeat users, ultimately enhancing the clinical communication and collaboration experience for healthcare professionals.

The market is subject to increasing scrutiny in terms of regulations, number of market players, capital investment, and buyer landscape. Unlike medical devices, regulatory requirements and oversight for alarm management solutions and services are lax in both developed and developing economies.

For instance, in the U.S., several guidelines and industry standards for alarm management have been released only in the last decade, and there is a growing need for more standardized and validated regulations. The regulations currently adhered to in the market have been put forth by the Joint Commission, Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation, in conjunction with the FDA, ECRI, and the American College of Clinical Engineering.

There are a limited number of direct product substitutes. As these solutions and services are unique in their application to monitor, identify, and optimize alarms generated at a healthcare facility, there are currently no internal or external substitutes for the product. The threat of substitutes is thus expected to be low.

Growth strategies, such as agreements, launch of advanced products, expansion of product portfolio, and partnerships with key players, boost market growth. For instance, in March, 2022, Koninklijke Philips N.V. announced the latest FDA 510(k) market authorization for HIMSS22, Philips Capsule Surveillance solution, for deployment across U.S. healthcare systems. Masimo accounted for significant shares in the North America regional market.
