Health information technology (HCIT) comprises various technologies that gather, store, analyze, and represent information for various areas in the healthcare sector. Over the years, the global healthcare IT industry has transitioned from the application of IT solutions from basic administrative functions to core clinical tasks. The increased amount of data gathered through patient records has now led to the deployment of advanced IT solutions in the healthcare sector. This includes the deployment of advanced analytics solutions, population health management solutions, and AI solutions for a variety of clinical and non-clinical applications.

Today, the rising cost of healthcare is prompting healthcare providers & payers to adopt HCIT solutions that can reduce costs of care delivery and efficiently transform the clinical and non-clinical workflows to manage increasing patient flow. These healthcare IT solutions help increase patient engagement, facilitate better quality care, and improve operational and clinical efficiencies.

The transition to value-based care is also one of the key factors driving stakeholders to adopt various healthcare IT solutions. Government regulations and initiatives aimed at digitizing the workflows of the healthcare industry are also prompting healthcare providers and payers to adopt various healthcare IT solutions, which in turn is contributing to the growth of the global healthcare IT market.

The growth of the healthcare IT market is driven by rising awareness regarding digital health, government mandates and incentives for healthcare IT and infrastructure development, the shift toward value-based care, the growing utilization of big data in the healthcare sector, the high returns on IT investments in the healthcare industry, and the increasing number of patient visits. However, the high costs of implementing and maintaining healthcare IT infrastructure, financial constraints in developing countries, and restricted budgets of small and medium-sized healthcare facilities restrain the growth of this market.

Additionally, the growing focus on cloud-based solutions, the rising adoption of AI & IoT technologies in healthcare, and emerging economies such as India and China with increasing per capita healthcare expenditures are expected to offer significant growth opportunities for the stakeholders in this market. However, interoperability issues, data security & privacy concerns, and the shortage of trained IT professionals are major challenges impacting the market's growth.

Moreover, the increasing use of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) for physical and surgical procedures, the increasing demand for healthcare IT solutions in the field of genomics and personalized medicine, increasing access to virtual hospitals, and the rising demand for remote patient monitoring and telemedicine solutions are prominent trends in the healthcare IT market.

Increasing Awareness about Digital Health is Driving the Market's Growth

Healthcare IT solutions facilitate the transition to a paperless environment, allowing physicians seamless access to patient's medical records as needed. This accessibility enables physicians to make informed decisions and minimizes medical errors. Similarly, hospitals benefit from improved efficiency and streamlined health information transfer, enhancing overall workflow management and reducing operational costs.

Healthcare software enables high-quality and error-free care delivery. Electronic health records provide safer transmission of patient information and access to more reliable prescriptions for physicians. They also help with legible and complete documentation of patients' medical history. With connected infrastructure, HCIT solutions enable easier tracking of unforeseen drug interactions and also help to improve decision support. Healthcare institutions across the globe are focusing on automating their systems and operational workflows with the incorporation of a variety of HCIT tools and solutions.

The benefits of healthcare IT solutions in reducing the cost of care delivery and improving the efficiency of healthcare systems to accommodate the expanding patient populations have prompted numerous government and multilateral institutions and agencies to actively promote the adoption of digital health solutions. As a result, they are undertaking various initiatives aimed at raising awareness and promoting the utilization of such technologies. For instance, in August 2023, the World Health Organization (WHO) and G20 India Presidency jointly announced the Global Initiative on Digital Health to bolster the implementation of the Global Strategy on Digital Health 2020–2025. As part of this initiative, the WHO will act as the Secretariat for strategy implementation, facilitating the aggregation of global standards, resources, and best practices aimed at expediting the transformation of digital health systems worldwide.

Additionally, in December 2021, the French President inaugurated the Council of the European Union (PFUE), with digital health being part of the project. The inauguration includes the draft for the European Health Data Space (EHDS), which will govern digital health for all EU Member States and serve as a guide to transform the way digital health is implemented across the European Union. Similar initiatives aimed at promoting digital health are also underway across many countries across the globe. Thus, the increasing awareness about digital health is enhancing the adoption of health IT solutions and related infrastructure across the globe, driving the growth of the healthcare IT market.
