Healthcare IT market to keep growth momentum amid the paperless push
The increasing adoption of digitalization in healthcare has paved the way for the smart use of medical data, guiding physicians in providing better services, even remotely.
With several government leaders around the world limiting mobility and the rise in infections bringing fears to people, telehealth services have become practical to avoid possible exposure to a COVID-positive individual. People wanting to seek a medical professional’s opinion can easily tap them using communications platforms, be it through a voice or video call.
A study conducted by the Research Reports World, released almost two years into the pandemic, showed that the healthcare IT (information technology) market is expected to exceed $395 billion by 2030.
“In the health and wellness field, the use of modern methods provides an efficient patient-centered approach to medical care and allows for smooth contact between physicians, patients and other interested individuals,” the report read.
“The volume of data has been rising continuously since the introduction of IT in healthcare; data storage and maintenance costs have risen over the last few years. The market growth is boosted by growing demand for preventive care coupled with an increase in funding for multiple mHealth startups,” it added. mHealth, or mobile health, provides access to people needing health services through mobile applications.
As the medical industry has begun automating its systems, hospital records have also started going paperless, mitigating risks of exposing confidential information or tampering.
“Some of the major factors responsible for the current growth of the market studied are the rise in demand for paperless technology,” the report said.
Companies offering telehealth services, for instance, provide not just consultation but also electronic prescription or a digital version of prescribing a patient’s medicine.
However, the report noted a hindrance in fully automating their processes, including the lack of trained IT professionals, the costs of implementing and maintaining digital applications, and privacy problems.
