Analysis of the Population Health Management (PHM) Market in Europe

Analysis of the Population Health Management (PHM) Market in Europe

Population health management (PHM) is an evolving concept in Europe, where the focus is on integrated care. Most PHM implementations involve the adoption of standalone components such as care coordination due to the infancy of the concept in the region. Moreover, the lack of pure play PHM vendors makes it hard for healthcare providers to identify one-stop solutions. This restraint is exacerbated by the lack of data sharing capabilities amongst providers and organisations and their inability to create centralised data lakes that are critical for the success of PHM. A growing need to acquire, aggregate, and analyse data from disparate sources creates opportunities for healthcare data integration vendors in Europe.
