Healthcare IT Market Size & Trends

The global healthcare IT market size was estimated at USD 199.5 billion in 2023 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.7% from 2024 to 2030. Increasing usage of smartphones, a growing demand for remote patient monitoring for improved out-of-hospital care, technologically advanced healthcare IT infrastructure, and an increase in the number of initiatives and investments supporting eHealth and digital are driving overall market growth. For instance, in May 2022, Microsoft collaborated with BeeKeeperAI, a healthcare AI solutions developer, enabling Microsoft Azure users to explore confidential computing's advantages in healthcare AI solutions.

U.S. Healthcare IT Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Ease of use, cost-effectiveness, and time efficiency are driving the widespread adoption of healthcare IT in hospitals. The market's expansion is also supported by continuous improvements in services provided by industry players to cater to consumer demands. For example, in August 2021, Change Healthcare introduced its cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) solution, Change Healthcare Stratus Imaging PACS, tailored for radiological practices. This innovative solution is in beta testing, with plans for future expansion into hospitals in the coming years.

Market Dynamics

Rising government initiatives to promote technologically advanced systems, including those addressing COVID-19 and other primary healthcare challenges, are also driving overall market expansion. For instance, growing economies such as India, have taken significant steps towards digitalization. In September 2021, India's Prime Minister introduced the Pradhan Mantri Digital Health Mission, an initiative aimed at digitizing healthcare services nationwide. This mission seeks to establish a secure and accessible digital healthcare system, enabling individuals to store, access, and authorize the sharing of their health records.

Growing smartphone penetration and improving internet coverage are directly contributing to the adoption of healthcare IT solutions. Smartphone penetration has improved chronic disease management, owing to an extensive usage of mHealth applications. As per a Mass Media Data report, 5.31 billion unique consumers were using mobile phones at the beginning of 2022, indicating that over two-thirds of the global population is currently utilizing these devices. Moreover, at the beginning of 2022, the number of Internet users worldwide stood at 4.95 billion, indicating that 62.5% of the global population had Internet access.

Surging demand for centralized medical records to help improve care delivery, particularly in developed nations such as the United States, where there has been a noticeable shift towards value-based care, is enabling the adoption of health management systems such as EHR. This contributes greatly to market expansion. For instance, in March 2022, Google Health collaborated with MEDITECH with an aim to use its search & summarization capabilities within MEDITECH's Expanse EHR platform to help clinicians provide the best care via easy and quick access to information from multiple sources.

Application Insights

Based on application, the market is segmented into electronic health records (EHR), computerized provider order entry systems (CPOE), electronic prescribing systems, medical imaging information systems, laboratory informatics, clinical information systems, and telehealthcare. The tele-healthcare segment is further divided into tele-care and telehealth. The segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 58.6% in 2023. This growth can be attributed to increasing demand for streamlined electronic healthcare systems, advancements in healthcare IT, and the need for technology-integrated tools.

The increasing health consciousness, rising demand for cost-effective care, and growing geriatric population are other key factors contributing to tele-healthcare segment growth. For instance, Independa, a TV-based platform specializing in remote engagement, care, and education, conducted a survey in November 2022 to examine smart TV users' behavior & attitude toward telehealth. Findings released in March 2023 revealed that over 90% of Americans had utilized telehealth services in the past year, with a satisfaction rate of 90%. These services included doctor's appointments, tele-dentistry, and vision appointments. The survey also highlighted the significance of increased smartphone penetration, as 71% of users accessed telehealth services using their smartphones. These findings indicate a growing awareness and positive reception of telehealth, which is expected to drive market growth, as telehealth adoption continues to rise during the forecast period.

The electronic prescribing system segment is anticipated to experience the fastest CAGR of 26.8% over the forecast period. An increase in awareness of the advantages of e-prescribing is fueling the adoption of e-prescribing systems. In a study titled “Perception of physicians towards electronic prescription systems and associated factors at resource-limited settings" published in PLOS ONE in March 2021, survey participants expressed positive perceptions of electronic prescriptions, with 76.5% providing a favorable response. Furthermore, approximately 70.8% of participants had over 5 years of computer usage experience. The study also revealed that nearly 90% of participants considered their electronic prescriptions to be legible.

The medical imaging information systems segment is subdivided into radiology information systems, monitoring analysis software, and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS). Factors such as an increasing need for streamlining healthcare operations, rising awareness about these systems in tracking billing information and orders of radiology imaging, and a growing prevalence of chronic diseases globally are significantly contributing to the overall medical imaging information systems segment growth.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market with a revenue share of 48.0% in 2023. The region's market growth is fueled by extensive adoption of healthcare IT solutions and services, especially in the U.S., as providers strive to enhance patient care while reducing costs. Adoption of healthcare IT solutions varies among providers due to various factors. A case in point is the high adoption of Electronic Health Records (EHR) in Oregon, where healthcare providers demonstrate varying adoption rates influenced by distinct digital divisions.

The increase in adoption of electronic health records is increasing significantly in the U.S. As per Health IT reports, until 2021, nearly 9 out of 10 U.S.-based physicians had adopted EHR. Thus, high adoption rates also play a crucial role in boosting market growth.

Global Healthcare IT Market share and size, 2022

Asia Pacific is anticipated to hold the fastest CAGR of over 22.8% during the forecast, with high demand for healthcare IT services, owing to increased government spending on healthcare. Furthermore, demand for healthcare IT systems has been increasing, as it enables efficient management of clinical, financial, and administrative aspects of hospitals.

Several government initiatives and supportive programs are also boosting the adoption of such technologies. For instance, in Australia, state as well as federal governments support healthcare IT at their level. State-level programs, such as HealthSmart, and nationwide programs, such as HealthConnect, are examples of government programs undertaken to increase the integration of IT in healthcare. In addition, South Africa is also focusing on the development of fully integrated health record systems via its careconnect.sa program. Such initiatives and policies in various nations are supporting market growth in the region, and expanding business opportunities are leading to many players entering the market.
