Furthermore, the increasing need to reduce risk factors such as hospital-acquired infections, the need for reduction in healthcare costs, and a rise in focus to strengthen patient outcomes are a few major factors responsible for the increasing demand for these software products. An increase in chronic health conditions is anticipated to drive the awareness and benefits associated with the market. This, in turn, is expected to help in the growth of the market for patient safety and risk management software in the coming years.

The rapid growth in healthcare infrastructure encourages hospitals and long-term care centers to adopt different innovative technologies, which in turn is influencing the growth of the market. Furthermore, increasing patient awareness and increased operational efficiency due to reduced medical errors are some major factors propelling the growth of the market for patient safety and risk management software.

In addition, the use of patient safety and risk management software results in an improved workflow in healthcare institutions. Coupled with the growing need to adhere to compliance guidelines, the demand for the market is expected to grow sharply in the coming years. As a result, companies are focusing on the development of new software products and solutions to improve healthcare provider performance and offer quality care to the patient, which is expected to boost market growth over the forecast period.

In May 2023, Origami Risk, one of the leading providers of integrated SaaS solutions for the risk, healthcare, and insurance industry, announced the addition of a new standard solution that can facilitate the initiation, tracking, and reporting of peer reviews, including nurses and medical residents that can be further configured to meet organizational needs. 

An increase in the need to comply with regulatory guidelines, multiple government initiatives to develop healthcare IT, and improvements in healthcare infrastructure are other factors positively impacting the demand for this software. However, security breaches and data privacy are some factors likely to hamper market growth for patient safety and risk management software.

For instance, some major challenges faced by healthcare institutions include assurance of data safety by hospital authorities, and no changes in information permitted without proper authentication. In addition, there is a high risk associated with the delivery of data, owing to the rapidly rising use of personal smartphones and tablets by healthcare practitioners, which leads to inconsistency in locations.

Digital transformation has led to advancements in risk management technologies. Patient safety & risk management software provides improved benefits to organizations and strengthens relationships with patients while reducing anticipated risks. The COVID-19 pandemic led to several advancements in digital health technology. Globally, countries were using integrated technologies with government-coordinated software such as tracing the infected person and testing processes during this period. Such factors are most likely to contribute to growth in the patient safety and risk management software space.

End-user Insights

The hospital segment accounted for the largest market share of 36.0% in 2022 owing to the growing need to reduce medical errors. Increasing adoption of IT in healthcare due to its advantages such as simplified and consistent data collection process, as well as single point of data entry, reduces the risk of errors, thus aiding market growth. Furthermore, the increasing risk of conditions such as sepsis, errors caused by radiotherapy, and errors in transfusion practices are a few factors contributing to market growth.

In May 2022, Mindray, a global provider of medical solutions, optimized its innovative M-Connect IT Solution at the Tulip Hospital in Haryana, India. The monitoring design of the M-Connect solution helps clinicians to access real-time and historical patient data of all the actions and improvements near the bedside, doctor’s office, nurse’s station, and around the hospital on their smartphones.

The ambulatory care center segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 12.7% during the forecast period in the global patient safety & risk management software market. The reduced diagnosis time, implementation of an efficient management system that provides patient safety, and reduction in the cost associated with treatments are the key factors expected to drive the growth of this market segment in the coming years.

Software Type Insights

The risk management and safety solutions segment accounted for the largest market share of 67.2% in 2022. This large share is attributable to the development of patient safety software, which provides an advantage to healthcare managers to access patient data from a single system, resulting in easy accessibility and protection of data. These solutions provide effective and high-quality care for patients.

In May 2023, DOSIsoft announced the launch of ThinkQA Secondary Dose Check, a new software application that provides the calculation and verification of secondary doses of patients. It is designed to help Radiation Therapy (RT) departments with patient-specific safety and quality assurance (QA) procedures and achieve meeting the QA standards of the most recent adaptive radiotherapy tools and procedures.

Increasing pressure on healthcare providers to maintain patient data securely, owing to the rising number of cybercrime events worldwide, is another major factor driving the demand for this segment. In addition, the reduced costs associated with risk management and safety solutions are boosting the adoption of this software. It decreases the chances of medical errors and patient injuries, resulting in improved survival rates. Therefore, the multiple benefits associated with this software are anticipated to drive the market for patient safety and risk management software in the coming years.

The governance, risk, and compliance solutions segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 12.9% during the forecast period. This is attributed to the rising number of adverse health-related events across the world. As per a report by the Institute of Medicine (IOM), around 98,000 people die per year due to medical errors, when they are admitted to the hospital. Governments have developed a number of measures to enhance patient outcomes and safety. To raise awareness in this area, the WHO and several governments are directing several patient safety programs.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 57.1% in 2022. The increasing shift from on-premise solutions to healthcare IT solutions is driving the growth of the market. The rising use of data analytics to streamline workflow at healthcare organizations, enhanced patient safety, and the presence of numerous market participants in the U.S. are some major factors boosting the market growth of this region.

Asia Pacific is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 13.6% during the forecast period. Multiple initiatives taken up by regional governments to enhance patient safety, along with the rapid adoption of technologies by healthcare facilities resulting in an increased demand for software to provide high-quality patient care, are some of the key factors fueling the growth of the market for patient safety and risk management software.
