Report Overview

The global healthcare analytics market size was estimated at USD 7.04 billion in 2016. Increasing need to reduce healthcare expenditure, including cost associated with medical product flaws and hospital workflow inefficiencies, is anticipated to increase the usage of big data in the healthcare sector.

U.S. healthcare/medical analytics market

The digitalization of healthcare data is also one of the primary drivers of healthcare analytics. According to Intel, approximately more than 80.0% of the healthcare organizations in the U.S. have adopted Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems. These systems collect a lot of data, which can be analyzed using various types of healthcare analytics to develop personalized medicine.

Healthcare Analytics (HA) is used by providers to be able to identify clinically meaningful outcomes in relation to costs through investigational mining of electronic patient records for identifying inherent medical inaccuracies in the system so as to offer cost-effective treatments to patients, while reducing the amount of resources wasted.

HA can be used to reduce time to treatment, improve performance of healthcare providers, there is risk mitigation, reduced rate of hospital readmissions, increasing use of personalized medicine, it eliminates the need of conducting additional diagnostic tests.

Advanced methods such as predictive analytics are widely used in government organizations such as healthcare financing systems primarily to avoid frauds in payments. For instance, in 2011, the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) reported that under its Fraud Prevention System (FPS), predictive analytics helped in saving USD 1.5 billion through improper payments. Moreover, the CMS is developing next generation predictive analytics, which is expected to boost the usage of predictive analytics.

On the other hand, cloud based analytics is anticipated to exhibit remunerative growth over the forecast period. Remote access to data, real-time data tracking and avoidance of complex physical ecosystem are the notable benefits associated with cloud-based systems

Cloud-based technology helps in storing a large amount of data remotely to allow free space on the devices and later facilitates the data retrieval according to the need of the clients. The technology comprises three services including Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). The analytics software are SaaS based services. IMB offers its Watson Analytic services on SaaS platform.
