Increasing pressure to curb healthcare costs along with changing dynamics of hospital/healthcare settings is fueling the demand for practice management systems in U.S. In addition, rising focus on implementing cost-effective and high-quality care is also likely to contribute toward the market development. The healthcare institutes are witnessing a paradigm shift in U.S. as a result of the changing dynamics of the business models.

Product Insights

Based on products, the U.S. practice management systems market is segmented into integrated and standalone systems. Integrated solutions include Electronic Health Records (EHR), e-Prescription, patient engagement, and billing systems. Standalone systems primarily focus on billing and administrative function, particularly scheduling, of the organization. Integrated systems are gaining popularity due to the trend of centralization in the healthcare industry and rising complexities related to patient care and payments.

Integrated management systems captured the largest share of the U.S. market in 2019 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. Practice management systems can be used cohesively along with various other software to enhance efficiency and communication across different departments. In the case of large-scale facilities, this is highly popular as it helps curtail administrative and medical errors.

Component Insights

The component segment includes software and services offered by the key companies. The software segment is anticipated to account for the largest market share over the forecast period owing to government reforms and rising technological advancements in the field of healthcare IT. In addition, constant product launches along with improvement in the existing versions are also supporting the segment development.

For instance, in September 2018, Henry Schein One launched Dentrix G7, an upgraded version of the practice management system for dental care. It uses the industry’s leading digital imaging solutions to boost financial and clinical workflows and improves the efficiency of diagnosis as well as billing. In May 2018, Kareo launched Kareo Analytics for billing professionals to reduce complexity by delivering transparency and valuable insights.

Delivery Mode Insights

Based on the delivery mode the market is segmented into cloud-based, web-based, and on-premise. Web-based practice management systems accounted for the largest share owing to their benefits, such as affordability, quick Return on Investment (RoI), and ease of deployment.

However, cloud-based segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR owing to higher reliability and faster processing. Moreover, it also offers readily available information that can be accessed in remote locations. This technology is being highly adopted across the country owing to the rapidly evolving healthcare IT scenario.

Although the growth of cloud-based segment is sluggish in rural regions, it is expected to improve over the forecast period. One of the predominantly used practice management solution, Practice Studio, offers both web- and cloud- based versions in order to promote higher usability in urban as well as rural regions across the country.

End-user Insights

Based on end user, the market is segmented into physician’s offices, pharmacies, diagnostic laboratories, and other settings. Other settings may be further defined as emergency care centers, community health centers, nursing stations, and hospital and clinic workstations. The physician’s office segment held the largest share in 2019 and is projected to witness remunerative growth over the forecast period.
