Computer Assisted Coding Market by Software (Natural Language Processing, Structured Input, Integrated Systems), Service (Support, Education & Training), Application (Automated Encoding, Clinical Coding Audit, Management Reporting) - Global Forecast to 2022
The global computer-assisted coding market is projected to reach USD 4.75 billion by 2022 at a CAGR of 11.5% during the forecast period. The factors expected to drive the growth of the market are increased regulatory requirements for patient data management, increasing implementation of EHR (electronic health records), and growing utilization of computer-assisted coding systems to curtail the soaring healthcare costs. The rapid growth in developing countries across APAC is also expected to provide an opportunity for revenue generation in the market. However, high implementation and maintenance expenses for computer-assisted coding and lack of IT professionals in the healthcare industry are expected to hinder the growth of the computer-assisted coding market to some extent.
The integrated computer-assisted coding software segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
Based on product & service, the market is categorized into solutions and services. In 2016, the solutions segment dominated the market. The solutions segment is subsegmented into standalone software and integrated software. The integrated computer-assisted coding software segment is the fastest-growing segment of the global computer-assisted coding solutions. This can be attributed to the growing need for optimized computer-assisted coding software for seamless workflow and successful data integration within healthcare provider systems.
The web-based solutions segment to dominate the global computer-assisted coding market during the forecast period
Based on the mode of delivery, the global computer-assisted coding market is segmented into web-based solutions, cloud-based solutions, and on-premise solutions. In 2016, the web-based solutions segment accounted for the largest share of the global computer-assisted coding market. Web-based solutions help clinicians to create complete and accurate clinical documentation. Healthcare providers prefer web-based solutions owing to their data security features, cost benefits and ease of support in downstream revenue cycle and quality reporting processes.
North America to witness the highest growth during the forecast period (2017-2022)
North America is the largest market for computer-assisted coding, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The implementation of ICD-10 coding standards in the country’s healthcare system and the resultant demand for effective claims management processes in the country’s healthcare delivery framework are some of the factors contributing to the large share of North America in the market. However, the Asia-Pacific market is expected to register the highest growth during the forecast period owing to the growing need to curtail healthcare delivery costs, increasing implementation of electronic health records in healthcare, and rising medical tourism in this region.
