Healthcare IT includes electronic health records,, medical coding, personal health records, electronic, medical records, and electronic prescribing (e-prescribing).
The growth of the U.S. healthcare IT market is majorly driven by increase in demand for quality healthcare services & solutions, rise in acceptance of mHealth & telehealth practices, surge in demand for improved patient safety & patient care, and increase in government initiatives to promote healthcare IT. Furthermore, rise in integration of artificial intelligence (AI) for development of advanced healthcare devices drives the growth of market. For instance, in February 2022, AliveCor, the leading innovator in personal electrocardiogram (ECG) technology, received the U.S. FDA clearance for its KardiaMobile Card, the slimmest, most convenient personal ECG device. The KardiaMobile Card is an AI-enabled device, pairs with a smartphone using Bluetooth technology to detect six of the most common arrhythmias.
Furthermore, increase in prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), and hypertension boosts the demand for advanced healthcare services. For instance, according to the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), in 2019, 2.0 million people died from CVDs. Thus, prevalence of chronic diseases drives the focus of key players towards developing AI-integrated medical devices. For instance, Medtronic, the U.S. leader in medical technology, received the U.S. FDA clearance for two AccuRhythm AI algorithms for used with the LINQ II insertable cardiac monitor (ICM). AccuRhythm AI applies AI to heart rhythm event data collected by LINQ II, improving the accuracy of information physicians receive so they can better diagnose and treat abnormal heart rhythms.
Impact of COVID-19 on U.S. Healthcare IT Market
Increase in acceptability of mHealth and telehealth services in the U.S. due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic acts as a key growth driver of the healthcare IT market. In addition, surge in number of smartphone users encourages key players to develop health software, which is anticipated to notably contribute toward the market growth. For instance, in 2020, approximately, 294.15 million population in the U.S. were using smartphones. Moreover, in June 2020, Philips, a global leader in health technology, entered into a collaboration with American Telemedicine Association (ATA) to further help the adoption of telehealth software, demonstrating telehealth software efficiency in the connecting care sector across acute, post-acute, and home care settings. This collaboration spotlights the growing adoption of telehealth amidst COVID-19 and the need to for exponential shift to telehealth. Thus, all these factors collectively are expected to foster the growth of the healthcare IT market.
Rise in the disease burden in the U.S. and upsurge in geriatric population have escalated the demand for improved patient safety and patient care. Moreover, availability of advanced healthcare information technologies for wireless monitoring and treatment of patients suffering from different chronic diseases, such as blood pressure, heart rate, and diabetes, is one of the major factors that boosts the market growth in the U.S. With the help of health IT, telehealth, and telemedicine solution, chronic diseases can be controlled and prevented from becoming severe in nature.
For instance, according to the U.S. Administration for Community Living (ACL 2020) report, in 2019, the population aged 65+ was 54.1 million. Moreover, implementation of favorable healthcare reforms such as the U.S. Affordable Care Act (ACA) and telehealth initiatives boosts the growth of the healthcare sector and improves patient safety and patient care.
Furthermore, increase in prevalence of chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, and cancer boosts the demand for advanced and safer treatments such as mHealth application for blood pressure monitoring, patient health analyzing software, and telehealth services.
In the recent years, IT has become the inevitable part of every business as it fosters innovation. Healthcare organizations face extraordinary challenges to improve quality, access, reduce harm, and increase efficiency, which can be addressed by innovations. The government in the U.S. has taken several efforts to promote healthcare IT in various settings.
For instance, in 2020, the American Medical Association supported the telehealth initiative to enhance the healthcare access. Moreover, in June 2021, the Government of the U.S. invested $80 million for creating a new public health informatics & technology program. Thus, increase in initiatives taken by the U.S. Government to integrate IT in the healthcare sector contributes toward the growth of the market
