The increasing usage of smartphones, growing demand for remote patient monitoring for improved out-of-hospital care, technologically advanced healthcare IT infrastructure, and rise in the number of initiatives and investments supporting eHealth are driving the 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. Rising government initiatives to promote technologically advanced systems, including those addressing COVID-19 and other primary healthcare challenges, are also driving the market expansion.

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

For instance, growing economies, such as India, have taken significant steps toward digitalization. In September 2021, the Indian 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. In addition, the ease of use, cost-effectiveness, and time efficiency are driving the 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. Growing smartphone penetration and improving internet coverage are directly contributing to the adoption of healthcare IT solutions. Smartphone penetration has improved the management of chronic disease owing to the usage of mHealth applications. According to the Mass Media Data report, 5.31 billion unique users will be using mobile phones by the beginning of 2022, which indicates that more than two-thirds of the world's population presently utilizing mobile phones.

In addition, at the start of 2022, the global internet user count stood at 4.95 billion, indicating that 62.5 percent of the global population had access to the internet. Furthermore, the growing demand for centralized medical records to enhance care delivery, especially in developed economies like the U.S., where there's a shift towards value-based care, is driving the adoption of health management systems like EHR. This, in turn, contributes to the market expansion. For instance, in March 2022, Google Health collaborated with MEDITECH 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

On the basis of application, the market is segmented into Electronic Health Record (EHR), Computerized Provider Order Entry Systems (CPOE), electronic prescribing systems, medical imaging information systems, laboratory informatics, clinical information systems, and telehealthcare. Furthermore, the tele-healthcare segment is divided into tele-care and tele-health. In 2022, telehealthcare holds a dominant segment with a revenue share of 55.8%. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for streamlined electronic healthcare systems, advancements in healthcare IT, and the need for technology-integrated tools. In addition, increasing health consciousness, rising demand for cost-effective care, and growing geriatric population are some of the other key factors contributing to the growth of telehealth care.

Global Healthcare IT Market share and size, 2022

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. The 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, teledentistry, 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 in 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 system 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% showing a favorable attitude. 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. Furthermore, 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 the increasing need for streamlining healthcare operations, rising awareness about these systems in tracking billing information and orders of radiology imaging, and the growing prevalence of chronic diseases globally are significantly contributing to the overall medical imaging information systems segment growth.
