The global medical billing outsourcing market size is expected to reach USD 30.2 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 12.03% during the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is driven primarily by factors such as the increasing importance of regulatory compliance and risk management, the growing need to streamline the medical billing process, and efforts to reduce internal processing costs.
A large amount of clinical code representation for diagnosis and treatment coupled with the presence of multiple payers renders medical billing an intricate part of any clinical practice. Currently, the healthcare system is witnessing a subsequent rise in the outsourcing of clinical billing services by hospitals and physicians due to the obligatory implementation of complex ICD-11 coding systems, increasing healthcare costs, and a federal mandate to implement Electronic Medical Records (EMR) to maintain reimbursement levels.
The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a significant impact on the market, although the healthcare industry was trailing in embracing innovative and digital technologies to improve healthcare. The COVID-19 scenario has put an enormous burden on healthcare providers/organizations to become accustomed to the change. The need for proactive action and the construction of a comprehensive, collaborative, scalable, and adaptable digital healthcare infrastructure has been emphasized by the pandemic crisis. As a result, many organizations are developing a new strategy that includes digitization and outsourcing non-core functions such as billing and accounting, which is expected to boost the market growth.
Furthermore, clinics/physician offices are gradually outsourcing their revenue management to cut unnecessary costs and prevent the burden of managing an administrative team to ensure effective handling of in-house billing functions. In addition, multispecialty healthcare groups are implementing consolidation requiring EHR integration and building large healthcare networks. This integration creates a need for revenue cycle management (RCM), which, in turn, demands additional expertise and trained personnel to manage the same. Thus, the consolidation of large healthcare practices is also expected to be one of the factors fueling market growth.
