Global Patient Safety and Risk Management Software Market Outlook: 2016-2021
The potential for healthcare IT to improve the safety of health care delivery has been appreciated for decades, and the role of healthcare IT in introducing patient safety and risk management software has been recognized more recently. Patient safety refers to the use of technology and methodologies to report, analyze, and prevent the occurrence of medical errors.Lack of skilled it professionals in the hospitals, poor regulatory standards in many countries, usage of old technologies, less awareness among the patient population, and reluctance among medical professionals to adopt advanced healthcare IT tools are the major reasons for occurrence of patient safety issues.
Though patient safety is a relatively new area of emphasis in healthcare, the awareness about the need to reduce the occurrence of medical errors has been gaining momentum over past few years. Various governments across the globe and WHO have been leading patient safety campaigns to increase the awareness among the patient population. In addition, several healthcare IT companies are coming up with innovative IT solutions such as patient safety and risk management software to ensure patient safety.
Several market drivers will continue to increase patient safety and risk management software spending. The increasing need to curtail growing healthcare costs, rising incidence of medical errors, growing need to adhere to regulatory guidelines, and various government initiatives to promote the use of healthcare IT across the globe will drive hospitals, long term care centers and other end users to deploy patient safety and risk management software. In addition, the need to improve outcomes and quality management in care delivery environments, will force healthcare providers to evaluate and select more sophisticated IT solutions such as patient safety and risk management software. However, the high implementation cost, lack of in house IT domain knowledge, reluctance among end users to adopt new methods, and the data security and interoperability issues are expected to limit the adoption of these software, thereby restricting the growth of this market to some extent.
