December 2020 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Electronic Health Records Market Growth & Trends

The global electronic health records market size is expected to reach USD 40.50 billion by 2027 registering a CAGR of 4.8%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Web-based EHRs are anticipated to lead the market over the forecast period. These EHRs are convenient for use in pharmacies, small-scaled laboratories, and clinics, as they require limited hardware infrastructure, which reduces the cost of installation, thereby enabling speedy adoption. EHR vendors and organizations help in curbing the pandemic by making telehealth a mainstream alternative, enhancing data access through EHRs, and collaborating to develop Covid-19 dashboards in detail.

The introduction of EHRs for medical coding and billing has eased the process, as computerized data entry systems are more convenient & efficient than paper-based methods. EHRs also minimize the risk of errors in patient data as well as financial details. As per the University of Michigan, the cost of outpatient care reduced by 3% upon shifting to EHRs from paper-based records.

In addition, M&A activities and new product launches by the key players are boosting the market growth. For instance, in December 2018, Meditech U.K. acquired Centennial Computer Corporation, its long-time business affiliate in the U.K. This acquisition was part of the formation of Medical Information Technology U.K. Ltd. and would allow the company to strengthen its geographic footprint in the country. In August 2020, Cerner Corp. collaborated with Amazon to integrate its EHR solutions with the latter’s wearables, such as Amazon Halo. This would provide greater interoperability to its customers and strengthen its service portfolio.
