The global healthcare IT market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 10% from 2002 to 2009 to reach revenues of $19.5 billion by 2016. The market is mainly driven by the increased adoption of healthcare IT in developing countries. For example, India and China are seeing increased private investment in hospitals. Healthcare IT has been found to increase efficiency and cost savings, and has therefore seen widespread adoption in developed countries since 2000. In the US, the federal funding for meaningful use will see a greater rate of adoption of healthcare IT in previously untouched rural hospital markets.
The US Market is expected to be the Fastest Growing Market for Hospital Information Systems from 2009 to 2015
The HIS (Hospital Information Systems) market in the US was valued at $2.6 billion in 2009 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 19.3% over the next seven years.
The economic stimulus provided by the ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) will increase the adoption rates to 90% for physicians and 70% for hospitals in the US. The ARRA, signed into law by President Obama on February 17, 2009, allocated $20 billion towards health IT (Information Technology). The ARRA promises financial incentives to providers and hospitals for the meaningful use of certified healthcare IT products. Under the provisions of ARRA, incentive payments made to physicians and hospitals are expected to significantly increase the uptake of certified healthcare IT systems, according to analysis from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). Under the ARRA, the CBO estimates that by 2019, 65% of physicians and 45% of hospitals will have adopted certified healthcare IT systems. Before 2009, HIS adoption rates stood at only 10%, with private hospitals being the only market for vendors in the US. The government stands to gain by the reduction of medical errors, reduced adverse event related costs and an improved overall healthcare system, by bringing about work flow efficiency and accountability. The change to improve efficiency throughout the healthcare systems and improve patient safety came in 2004, with President Bush’s federal initiative to establish Electronic Health Records (EHR) for all Americans by 2014.
Privacy and Security to be Important Features of HIS Products
With computerization, hundreds of thousands of health records can be accessed by a single trespasser in the system. Keeping this in mind, healthcare IT vendors have started giving strong emphasis on standards, and are going to invest more on the privacy and security features of their products, as well as make it a key part of their marketing message. In2006, the National Consumer Health Privacy Survey, by the California Healthcare Foundation (CHCF), found that:
80% of respondents were very concerned about identity theft or fraud.
67% of respondents were “somewhat” or “very concerned” about the privacy of their personal medical records.
56% are concerned about employers having access to their health information.
55% were concerned about insurers gaining access to this information.
In Europe, the European Directive 95/46/EC (protection of personal data) is recognized and accepted as the world's highest privacy standard. It calls for organizations to look at standardizing data formats and ensuring that only authorized individuals have access to the patient records. This EU (European Union) legislation, along with the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) in the US, will be taken into consideration in the development of healthcare IT infrastructure, while maintaining patient data privacy and security across the world.
