Industry Insights

The global population health management (PHM) market size was valued at USD 16.4 billion in 2016. The medical industry is rapidly transforming from a paper-based system into a digitized system, which is accelerating the demand for healthcare IT services. In addition, the increasing demand for solutions supporting value-based care delivery by healthcare stakeholders has resulted in a shift from fee-for-service (FFS) to a value-based payment (VBP) models.

U.S. population health management market

PHM solutions aim at data-driven healthcare at population level and enable segmentation of patient population, based on common medical conditions and attributes. PHM enables data aggregation, risk stratification, care coordination, and patient communication. As complexity in care delivery & payment models and clinical needs is increasing, the requirement for a PHM program that combines multiple functionalities is rising, which can process clinical, financial, and operational data to improve efficiency and patient care.

In the year 2010, the U.S. government introduced the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that facilitates high quality of care and reduces costs. This act also encouraged formation of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), including the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP). Adoption of healthcare IT solutions is a result of growing preference for value-based reimbursement structure and accountable care. ACOs are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers who contract with a payer to deliver high quality of health care.

Disease management programs analyze demographic characteristics and healthcare utilization, along with the identification of target high-risk population. This facilitates understanding of technological benefits. Rise in demand for effective disease management strategies is expected to boost the growth of PHM in the coming years. In addition, China and India are growing due to change in the FDI norms, which permits the implementation of new healthcare solutions that will facilitate management of patient records and provide a more central & accessible healthcare delivery.

Application Insights

PHM software segment accounted for the largest market share in the year 2016. Population health solutions can be customized according to the business needs of care providers. High level of customization is the biggest benefit of software and it guarantees high rate of return on investment. In addition, increasing need for integrated healthcare systems is responsible for the high demand for PHM software. Third party service providers are increasingly experiencing growth in demand for PHM solutions.

The healthcare scenario is changing rapidly with a shift from fee-for-service to value-based care delivery. PHM software offers a robust care management system with risk stratification structure. PHM software solutions provide a well-managed network that provides actionable analytics for providers and has ability to manage multiple lines of business seamlessly on one platform.

End-use Insights

Healthcare providers held majority of the market share in the year 2016. PHM improves clinical outcomes by aiding in better disease management. This will result in reduction of inpatient stay duration and reduce overall physician observation hours. As a result, a provider can focus more on patient-centric care and reduce overall costs.

Healthcare providers require PHM systems that are compatible with Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems to assist in holistic, patient-centric care. Providers need to identify trends at a population level and recognize opportunities to improve health care.

Payers in healthcare are third-party entities such as insurance carriers. These entities finance or reimburse the cost of health services. Predictive analytics competency gives payers advantage over other providers in interpreting population behavior and unstructured clinical content. This competitive advantage is instrumental in increasing the demand for PHM software for payers and is expected to propel growth of the segment at a significant CAGR in the forecast period.

Regional Insights

North America emerged as the largest market accounting for largest share of the global market in 2016. Total healthcare spending in the U.S. is expected to reach up to USD 4.8 trillion in 2021 from USD 2.6 trillion in 2010 - accounting for nearly 20% of gross domestic product by 2021. Thus, the alarming increase in healthcare costs is in turn escalating the demand for an effective PHM. The government is focusing on increased incentives and investment to improve national health by accurately tracking the health of the population and its subgroups.
