Component Insights 

In 2020, the services segment dominated the market for healthcare analytics and accounted for a revenue share of 37.0%. Healthcare and life science companies lack the expertise and resources to deploy analytics and outsource these services to other leading analytical solutions companies. In addition, the services segment is expected to record the fastest growth rate during the forthcoming years. Outsourcing companies are introducing multi-package services to life science companies, and it is expected to contribute to the growth of the segment over the forecast period.

The healthcare industry is under a tremendous workload, and it is surging the demand for analytical solutions in these organizations. Healthcare infrastructure is advancing and adopting analytical solutions and AI-based solutions for managing patient records. The services segment is expected to record the fastest growth rate over the forecasted period due to the outsourcing of services for short-term and long-term-based contracts. These packages include services covering social media analytics, manufacturing process, preventive maintenance, benchmarking, promotional spending, and predictive analysis for medical device failure.

Type Insights

In 2020, the descriptive analysis segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 38.0%. This is owing to the rising demand for descriptive analysis based on historic trends and datasets to acquire data-enriched insights to help businesses understand the current scenario more accurately. Market players use data mining tools on descriptive data siloes to estimate future market outcomes. For example, in December 2020, Trifecta and Accenture collaborated to deliver high-quality data mining solutions for improved drug discovery procedures. Descriptive analytics is widely used by companies to convert raw data and trends into interpretable data-driven insights helping companies understanding past business performance, consumer behavior, and analyze market impacts. Since the cost involved in purchasing descriptive datasets is comparatively lower than predictive and prescriptive analyzed datasets, it is expected descriptive analysis to significantly grow over the forthcoming years.

On the other hand, the predictive analysis segment is expected to register a lucrative growth rate over the forecast period. Growing utilization of advanced analytical solutions in predicting future market dynamics and outcomes allows players to devise appropriate strategies and tactics to improve business performance. Predictive analysis allows stakeholders to align their strategies and decision-making as per the market performance. Predictive analytics is heavily dependent on descriptive analysis and past business trends to predict future outcomes. Since predictive analysis is based purely on probabilities and trends, the analysis is not 100.0% accurate and needs logical reasoning and forecasting models to support predictions. Predictive analysis plays a key role in healthcare by determining product adoption rate, epidemiology of the disease, and changes in physician perception and buying behavior.

Application Insights

In 2020, the financial services segment dominated the market for healthcare analytics and accounted for the largest revenue share of 35.4%. These solutions are used by financial and government organizations in revenue cycle management, claim settlement, fraud prevention, and risk assessment. The financial services segment is anticipated to register the fastest growth rate for the forecasted period due to the rising adoption of these services in the prevention of fraud and reduce costs incurred by healthcare facilities.

Healthcare systems are undertaking various initiatives to adopt analytical solutions, which would help in reducing the occurrence of fraud and maximize cost savings. Since organizations are facing burdens in the form of rising costs and tight budgets, the need to adopt and implement analytical solutions to save costs and excess expenses in the form of frauds or improper payments is boosting the demand for healthcare analytics.

Delivery Mode Insights

In 2020, the on-premises delivery segment dominated the market for healthcare analytics and accounted for the largest revenue share of 50.1%. This is due to increased ease of access from remote locations with minimum maintenance and reduced costs. On-premise deployment involves installing systems and solutions on computers present within the organization. Generally, on-premise deployed software solutions are termed shrinkwrap software. These software solutions, although installed on-premise can be accessed from a remote location with reduced costs and low maintenance. In addition, the need for large physical areas for server rooms increases costs on deploying on-premise software solutions, which is expected to restrain growth. Server rooms house hardware that requires continuous maintenance and is expected to render growth of the segment.

On the other hand, the cloud-based segment is expected to witness the fastest growth rate over the forthcoming years. Cloud computing and web-based applications are witnessing a surge in adoption with the enhanced accessibility of the internet and improved ease-of-access from remote locations are driving the growth of the segment. Cloud deployed software solutions store data remotely, allowing free space on users’ devices and facilitating data retrieval as per need. Cloud-deployed technologies are comprised of Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). For example, IBM Watson Analytics is offered on a SaaS platform. The benefits associated with cloud-deployed software solutions are increased access, storage capacity, and enhanced security. These benefits help organizations optimize process efficiency and reduce mundane tasks.
