Integrated Practice Management Software (IPMS) Market—Primary Care IT 2.0 in Europe, Forecast to 2022

Integrated Practice Management Software (IPMS) Market—Primary Care IT 2.0 in Europe, Forecast to 2022

There is a high demand for more efficiency of time and resources in General Physician (GP) practices that are extremely strained under the increasing chronic disease burden and decreasing staff numbers. There is also increasing reliance on healthcare information technology, driven by a supportive regulatory environment, and it is contributing to a need to upgrade systems across primary healthcare for efficient functioning which is augmenting market growth.

Across Europe, basic primary care IT is well established, but is limited to patient administration and healthcare information management at a practice level. With the rise of integrated care models, the role of primary care in the healthcare ecosystem is much more than that of a gatekeeper and to meet the demand, practices will have to look at solutions that can manage and share information within and outside the network; thereby, requiring integrated practice management software.
Research Highlights
The study identifies opportunities by country and for all the different ecosystem components, especially for:
Value-based Care: improving performance assessment tools in primary care
Social Prescribing: Increasing role of GP practices in integrated and community care
Relationship Continuity: GPs to play an increasingly important part in patient-centric care
Retail Health: rise of walk-in clinics and community pharmacies as a part of primary care

Key Features
The objective of this research study is understanding the emerging concept of integrated practice management software and its adoption in primary care centers in Europe. Integrated practice management software is an end-to-end solution that offers clinical, administrative, and billing functions. With integrated EHR capabilities, these solutions offer functionalities, including ePrescription, scheduling, appointment systems, and portals for messaging as well as billing. Such solutions are an advancement over practice management systems that were primarily focusing on the billing & administrative function (particularly patient scheduling). The addressable market includes primary care centers operated by solo or group GP practices. This research study does not cover outpatients centers and ambulatory care units that are affiliated to hospitals. Countries covered for market forecast are the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Scandinavia, and Benelux. The study also discusses the emerging market in Estonia, Poland, and Austria qualitatively.

Key Issues Addressed
What is integrated practice management software? What has driven the development of these IT solutions?
How is the adoption of IT in primary care evolving? What is the impact and adoption of new technologies?
How are the initiatives at the national and regional level for driving adoption of integrated practice management software?
What is the current vendor landscape for integrated practice management software in Europe and how is it expected to evolve over the next five years?
What are the most promising growth opportunities and key investment areas over the next 5 years?
