 U.S. healthcare cloud PACS market size, by application, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

This is because these PACSs are less vulnerable to damage caused by hardware, and thus patient data is secure. In addition, the increasing demand for universalization of clinical and medical image storage in all formats, coupled with the heightened usage of image archiving, is expected to propel market growth. Aging is considered to be the greatest risk factor for chronic conditions. The geriatric population is highly susceptible to chronic conditions.Thus, the increasing global geriatric population in both developed and developing nations is expected to propel market growth.The increasing prevalence of corona-positive patients, along with the shortage of healthcare professionals, owing to the imposed lockdowns, has increased the necessity for improved healthcare solutions.

The ability to analyze and further transmit healthcare data and information, review images and collaborate with clinical staff & healthcare professionals during the pandemic to ensure quality clinical outcomes has boosted and favored the demand for healthcare cloud-based PACS. Furthermore, rising physicians’ flexibility for patient data accession to the diagnostic images anywhere during the pandemic has further propelled the market growth.The COVID-19 epidemic had a major impact on the market growth as in there is high demand for faster and easier access to patient images & medical records, particularly from CT and MRI departments.Cloud PACS has an advantage over on-premise solutions in terms of data resiliency, seamless scalability, cost-effectiveness, and real-time backup, making it the most preferable solution for mid-size organizations.

Application Insights

The other application segment accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 23.5% in 2021. It includes dentistry, dermatology, pathology, nuclear medicine, and clinical research.The increasing demand for medical images for the diagnosis of diseases on a daily basis is a major factor contributing to the growth of this segment. Furthermore, an increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases is a high-impact rendering driver for the segment, which may lead to the adoption of healthcare cloud PACS for disease control. Companies dealing in dentistry PACS include Paxera Health, Planmeca OY, INFINITT, CT-Dent, etc. Players in the pathology PACS segment include Sectra, Optomed, and others. In August 2021, Change Healthcare released end-to-end, cloud-native solution for medical imaging.

The cardiology segment is anticipated to be the second-largest segment by 2030. Cardiology PACS can connect to cardiac imaging system, patient Electronic Medical Record (EMR), Diagnostic Test (ECG), cath lab hemodynamics system, among others.They can help aggregate all cardiac patient data, waveforms, and imaging into one location. Technological advancements in this area are anticipated to fuel the market growth over the projected period. The growth of the segment is a result of the rising prevalence of cardiac disorders, which is expected to have a significant impact on the adoption of the solutions.According to the American Heart Association in 2018, the death rate reported due to cardiac disorders in the U.S. was 217.1 per 100,000 population, which is also one of the leading causes of death in the country.

End-use Insights

The hospital segment held the majority of the revenue share of 37.9% in 2021.These health organizations are currently advancing in terms of technology usage.Healthcare Cloud PACS is being used extensively in hospitals due to the rising number of complications in diseases.Furthermore, the increasing demand for early diagnosis is expected to propel the demand for Cloud PACS in hospitals.According to an article published by the American Hospital Association, the number of hospitals has increased from 6,146 in 2018 to 6,210 in 2019 in the U.S. Technologically advanced devices are widely being used in hospitals to provide better treatment to patients. These devices not only simplify the treatment procedures but also help in providing better, faster, and more accurate results.

 Global healthcare cloud PACS market share, by end use, 2021 (%)

Diagnostic centers are anticipated to be the fastest-growing segment over the forecast period. The PACS solutions seamlessly integrate with EMR/EHRs as well as help in the exchange of patient health-related information. Moreover, the ability of PACS to deliver a comprehensive suite of clinical tools has increased workflow efficiency. Such factors are driving the growth in the segment. Moreover, technological advances in healthcare owing to rising R&D in the field of medicine are anticipated to fuel demand for healthcare cloud PACS. Increasing adoption of Cloud-based Picture Archiving and Communications System in research labs due to its growing application scope across medical specialties, such as orthopedics, neurosurgery, oncology, & cardiology, fuels market growth.
