Further Key Findings from the Study Suggest:
In 2015, the BPO segment accounted for the maximum revenue share of 51.7%. The growing number of people enrolling for the insurance program, increasing pressure to bend the healthcare cost curve, and the rising implementation of ICD-10 codes are driving this segment’s growth. However, the KPO segment is expected to emerge as the fastest growing with a CAGR of 17.9%. Increasing demand for accurate claim resolution and the reduction of fraud incidences are some of the factors that are expected to drive the market over the forecast period.
In 2015, North America was a clear leader with a revenue share of 77.31%. The growing insurance enrollment, lack of low-cost skilled professionals, and the increasing demand for an integrated healthcare system are accountable for the large market share captured by this segment.
Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as the fastest growing region with a CAGR of 10.8% during the forecast period. The Southeast Asian region is one of the major outsourcing destinations in the world. The region includes Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Philippines, India, China, and many more, which are predominately involved in carrying out outsourcing activities. The presence of skilled workforce to provide high-end process services, such as software development and application development management, is one of the prominent factors driving the Asia Pacific healthcare payer services market in the coming years.
