Report Overview

The global healthcare quality management software market size was valued at USD 1.1 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.24% from 2023 to 2030. The market is experiencing significant growth driven by various factors such as rising healthcare expenses, the growing unstructured medical data, and increasing medical errors. Moreover, governments worldwide are prioritizing value-based care, resulting in regulatory mandates and requirements for improved patient safety, high-quality care, and enhanced clinical outcomes. As a result, hospitals and healthcare facilities are increasingly adopting QMS software solutions to fulfil these requirements.

U.S. healthcare quality management software market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The healthcare industry is facing a growing problem due to unorganized data, resulting in an increase in medical errors and higher costs. A study published by Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI) in 2022 found that medication errors among nurses were prevalent, with a rate of 72.1%. However, only 41.2% of these errors were reported. Among the medication errors, wrong doses accounted for the most common type, with a rate of 46.9%. Another study published in Saudi Pharmaceutical Journal and conducted in a central hospital in Saudi Arabia, a total of 4,860 medication errors were identified during 2018-2020, where over 50.0% of the errors were associated with medication prescribing, ordering, and transcription. Thus, there is a growing need for quality management software to address these issues, which is expected to drive market growth.

In addition, the article "Medication Dispensing Errors and Prevention" highlights that approximately 7,000 to 9,000 Americans lose their lives each year due to medication errors. Many others experience adverse reactions or encounter pharmaceutical issues, but these incidents often go unreported. As medical errors continue to increase, the demand for healthcare QMS solutions is expected to grow, thereby expanding the market.

The increasing popularity of medical tourism has led hospitals to focus JCI accreditation and ISO certifications in order to attract more patients. Individuals who travel overseas for medical treatment prefer hospitals with JCI accreditation. Medical tourism plays a crucial role in the economies of several Asian countries, including India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand, contributing to their GDP. Moreover, these countries are actively working towards expanding the number of JCI-accredited hospitals, which is expected to positively impact the market.

However, restrictions on outpatient visits and social isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic had a substantial effect on quality and compliance management. The number of patients visiting hospitals and healthcare facilities has decreased dramatically, negatively impacting the industry growth. Post-pandemic, healthcare QMS software will help businesses recover from the consequences of the pandemic, enabling them to focus more effectively on risk management and other operational difficulties, consequently driving the market over the projection period.

Type Insights

Business intelligence and data analytics solutions held the largest market share of over 51.0% in 2022 and is expected to witness the fastest growth in the forecast period. This is attributed to the increasing use of data analytics solutions, which enable healthcare providers to process large amounts of data, identify patterns and trends, and gain insights to improve patient outcomes, reduce costs, and increase operational efficiency. BI and analytics solutions are particularly valuable in analyzing clinical and operational data to identify areas for quality improvement.

The need of BI and analytics solutions in healthcare industry is increasing due to the growing significance of quality management. BI tools can improve facility performance and identify new KPIs for facility management, addressing the limitations of current performance measurement. The growing importance of these solutions in improving performance will drive their adoption in hospitals and other facilities, thereby fuelling the growth of the segment. On the other hand, increasing focus on compliance and adherence is propelling the growth of clinical risk management solutions segment.

Application Insights

The data management segment held the largest market share of 41.5% in 2022. This growth is primarily driven by the increasing volume of inconsistent healthcare data and the rising demand from regulatory organizations for reports that meet strict quality standards. Regulatory bodies, such as government agencies and accrediting organizations, require healthcare providers to submit comprehensive reports on various quality metrics, including patient outcomes, safety measures, and adherence to best practices.

The risk management plays a crucial role in enhancing patient safety and minimizing liabilities for healthcare organizations. By utilizing effective risk management software, healthcare providers can record and track events, allowing them to proactively identify risks, maintain regulatory compliance and mitigate potential harm.

Deployment Mode Insights

The cloud-based segment dominated the market and accounted for revenue share of 45.9% in 2022. This is due to the flexibility provided by cloud-based solutions, which allow organizations to easily adjust their software usage to meet changing regulatory requirements and operational needs. Additionally, cloud-based systems reduce upfront costs, enable smooth data sharing and collaboration, and provide convenient remote accessibility. These features are transforming the quality management system and contributing to the rapid growth of the cloud-based segment.

The web-based segment is expected to gain positive acceptance among users, similar to cloud-based systems. However, market growth may vary as cloud-based systems are still preferred due to their ability to operate without constant internet connectivity. While the web-based system relies on an internet connection, it offers the advantage of allowing users to access the system from any location. This factor is expected to further propel the growth of the web-based segment in the market.

On-premises software accounted a significant revenue share in 2022 due to its ability to provide data security and control, making it an appealing choice for healthcare organizations with strict compliance requirements associated with quality management system in healthcare organization aiming to prevent data breaches.

End-use Insights

The hospital segment held the largest market share of 56.5% in 2022 and is projected to experience the fastest growth during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to several factors, including the increasing focus on patient safety, and the rise in medical error rates. Increasing number of hospitals focusing on JCI accreditation, the adoption of healthcare information technology, and government mandates to maintain quality standards are also contributing to the segment growth.

The ambulatory surgery center is expected to experience significant growth during the forecast period. This can be attributed to various factors, such as the increasing in medical errors, the adoption of an effective QMS ensuring patient safety, and the cost reduction associated with quality management are the key factors driving the growth of the segment.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market with a share of 43.3% in 2022. Growing product launches by the leading player and increasing efforts by CMS to shift toward value-based care have resulted in greater acceptance of these solutions in North America.
