Furthermore, there is no doubt that technology has a significant impact on the entire healthcare system, from medical billing to medical management, including clinical alarm management. Growing efforts by notable players to set themselves apart from competitors have increased support for technological advancements at the lowest cost possible, which has ultimately led to market growth. In addition, improved patient safety and, perhaps, fewer missed true positive alarms are prominent market drivers as alarm fatigue is a major issue related to patient safety & quality

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the problem of alarm fatigue rapidly increased. This increased the adoption of clinical alarm management solutions, which positively influenced the market growth. Various institutes were also carrying out various activities for the development of technologically advanced solutions. For instance, in January 2021, a few researchers in New York, the U.S. developed a COVID-specific algorithm, which works by ranking patients’ likelihood of respiratory failure experience in 48 hours. Therefore, such factors have positively impacted the market during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Increasing cases of alarm fatigue are expected to boost the demand for clinical alarm management solutions as well as services. For instance, according to Full Beaker, Inc., as of August 2019, around 72-99% of all alarms in healthcare facilities, such as hospitals are false, which leads to alarm fatigue. Owing to such a growing number of false alarms, the true alarms which are supposed to alert clinicians of the real problems with patients are ignored sometimes. This drives the market growth during the forecast period.

Various benefits of clinical alarm management solutions are also likely to increase the demand for these solutions which fuels the market growth. These benefits are clinical, operational, as well as financial. Clinical benefits include enhanced patient and family satisfaction, improved sleep and rest, reduction in non-actionable alarms and gaps in alarm protocol, and enhanced patient safety along with possibly fewer missed true positive alarms. Operational benefits include decreased alarm fatigue, growing staff satisfaction, less burnout, improved productivity, and better use of nursing resources. Financial benefits include a reduction in staff turnover, decreased patient length of stay, avoidable patient harm and potentially costly repercussions from ICU transfers extended length of stay and litigation.

Component Insights

The clinical alarm management solutions segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share in 2022. This is owing to the rising adoption of connected care technologies in healthcare, initiatives by key companies, and the need to reduce alarm fatigue. The need to reduce adverse patient events, false/ nuisance alarms, and comply with regulatory mandates is anticipated to drive the market over the forecast period.

The services segment is estimated to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast period owing to initiatives by public and private health institutions, increasing service offerings by key market players, and growing demand to minimize risks to patient safety, which is anticipated to fuel the segment growth in the coming years. Technological advancements and the rising number of clinical alarm management service providers are other factors expected to propel market growth.

Product Insights

The nurse call systems segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 20.0% in 2022. The factors attributed to this large share include product developments driven by wireless technology and automation, and the need to improve clinical workflow and reduce operating costs for the healthcare facility while making optimum use of available resources. Also, growing funding for wireless technologies and IP-based nurse call systems is anticipated to boost the market growth during the projected period.

The EMR integration systems segment is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR of 20.0% from 2023 to 2030 owing to rising digitalization in healthcare, a surge in adoption of EHR/ EMR solutions from clinics to hospitals, and rising interoperability across digital healthcare solutions. The Vocera Platform offered by Vocera Communications, on the other hand, provides extensive interoperability solutions to enable clinical communication and workflow as part of a single platform.

End-Use Insights

The hospitals and clinics segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 25% in 2022 due to the growing patient flow, rising emergency cases, and incorporation of sophisticated clinical alarm management solutions. Moreover, the home care settings segment is estimated to grow owing to the need to improve patient safety in-home care settings through effective patient monitoring and ensuring a timely response.
