The healthcare industry, in recent years, has witnessed a paradigm shift, with the accelerated adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) leading to the integration of the physical world with the digital. Thus, pointing to a seismic shift in the volume and quality of clinical data. With the integration of analytics, the healthcare industry has been facilitated with the advantage to record valuable information and datasets ranging from patient preferences, individual medical history to therapies and procedures that have proven to be effective in treating specific diseases and injuries. The feasibility of preventive care over reactive care, provision of evidence-based treatment to patients, and facility of personalized care, are expected to be some of the driving factors for the growth of clinical data analytics in the Asia-Pacific region.
Technological Advancements in Healthcare
Many of the technologies used in medicine and healthcare have been undergoing high digitization and technological change. Many new developments such as electronic medical records, telemedicine, sensors and wearable technology, wireless communications, and other developments have aided in the use of clinical data analytics for better patient care and targeted drug usage. Many industry experts believe the medical industry is in a rapid change over to consumer focused services, which could further aid the development of clinical data analytics. Development of wearable technology is one of the primary factors enabling clinical data analytics. The success of wearable devices such as Fitbit, Pebble, Apple iWatch, and other consumer-grade fitness trackers has grabbed the attention of physicians. Many meaningful insights can be derived from the day-long recording of patient’s basic vital statistics. Apple sold over a million watches in China.
Pharmaceutical Industry the Primary Recipient of Clinical Data Analytics
Pharmaceutical companies, to tackle various regulatory requirements, falling R&D productivity, and to optimize the value chain, have been identified to integrate clinical data analytics to create competitive differentiation. Though the clinical data analytics market in the pharmaceutical industry is still in the nascent stage, the scenario is expected to change by 2020, to tackle problems related to site activation, on-site identification, and patient recruitment, to name a few. Clinical data analytics in the pharmaceutical industry decreases the time to market a drug, identifies and mitigates risks in the clinical trial process itself, adheres to various regulations and provides a single source of conclusion by integrating multiple data sources. These benefits have made clinical data analytics a preferred choice over conventional methodologies, thus, increasing its adoption.
China is a Major Market
Increasing patient pool, steadily increasing drug development costs and timelines, and a growing opportunity in the pharmaceutical industry has made China a hotspot for clinical data analytics in healthcare. Multi-national pharmaceutical companies, contract research organizations (CRO), academic institutions, and service providers have taken advantage of the recent regulatory changes in China, to establish their presence in the drug manufacturing industry, thereby paving a path for the growth of clinical data analytics in healthcare in the region. Owing to the benign new regulations, it is estimated that a total of 41% of the organizations conducted clinical trials in China in 2016, and around 33% of all the organizations raised the number of cases enrolled in China in the past two years, emphasizing the importance of clinical data analytics.
