Major Growth Driver: growing adoption of e-prescribing, telehealth, mHealth, and other HCIT solutions.
The pandemic has resulted in a significant increase in the burden on healthcare organisations across the globe. Healthcare facilities face immense pressure to create a well-coordinated environment where all clinical devices are connected internally and the organisation operates in coordination with other healthcare units.
According to Worldometer, there were around 650 million confirmed COVID-19 cases and 66 million deaths globally as of December 5, 2022. Considering the high and growing number of cases, the healthcare systems of several countries are facing a major shortage of hospital beds, healthcare providers, and basic medical equipment. This is compelling hospitals and other care facilities to deploy capacity management solutions to track COVID-19 patients and monitor and manage disease progression.
Restraint: IT infrastructure constraints in developing countries
Emerging countries experience a shortage of skilled IT personnel that impacts the adoption and usage of HCIT solutions in these countries. Furthermore, cost issues are one of the major obstacles to the adoption of HCIT solutions. The maintenance and software costs of these solutions are greater than the cost of the software. Additionally, software upgrades, per changing user requirements, represent a recurring expenditure amounting to almost 30% of the total cost of ownership. The aforementioned factors limit market growth in emerging countries to some extent.

Opportunity: Rising use of healthcare IT solutions in outpatient care facilities
In response to the rising pressures on health systems to lower the cost of care, the industry is shifting toward outpatient settings to reduce care costs. An outpatient surgery centre procedure is estimated to cost 30% to 60% less than an inpatient hospital setting. In addition, convenience is another important factor driving the rise of ambulatory care. With the increase in outpatient settings and patient influx, the demand for and usage of HCIT solutions in outpatient settings will increase.
According to a survey sponsored by United Health (US), around 10% of US hospitals had dedicated HCIT clinical documentation improvement programmes for their outpatient settings. An additional 10% is planned to implement these services in the next six months. Furthermore, 14% of hospitals planned to implement advanced solutions in the near future. This trend is expected to drive the use of HCIT solutions, such as RCM solutions, in outpatient settings in the coming years.
Challenge: Interoperability issues
Although healthcare providers are making great progress toward coordinated value-based care, interoperability among information systems remains challenging for implementing HCIT solutions. The healthcare industry is highly information-intensive, where patient information is generated in all departments at all points of care within a healthcare organization. However, the usability of this information is very low if it is not integrated properly to create an exhaustive and accurate patient record. Since many HCIT tools are being used within healthcare systems, there is a greater need to integrate IT systems to aid accurate decision-making by healthcare professionals at different points of care delivery. Moreover, the lack of interoperability among health organisations with a regional or national health IT platform for exchanging data hinders the full exploitation of HCIT solutions.
