Analyst’s Viewpoint

The Ambulatory EHR Market analysis entails market drivers, restraints, and opportunities in the market. The ambulatory EHR market driving factors include increasing adoption of EHR solutions, increasing need for seamless movement of healthcare information, and technological advancements. Additionally, government initiatives are also playing a crucial role in maintaining and enhancing patient health record portals. These factors are driving the growth of the Ambulatory EHR market from 2022 to 2030. However, high investments in infrastructure and increasing deployment costs are expected to hinder the market's growth. Further, the growing demand for cloud-based EHR solutions is emerging as a trend in the Ambulatory EHR Market during 2023–2030.

Market Insights

An electronic health record (EHR) is a digital version of a patient's medical history that their healthcare provider keeps over time. It includes important information such as demographics, progress notes, medical problems, medications, vital signs, past medical history, immunizations, laboratory data, and radiology reports.

An ambulatory EHR is software for outpatient care facilities such as clinics and doctor's offices. Its main purpose is to help physicians easily track a patient's medical history and treatment to aid in diagnosing and treating chronic illnesses. This software keeps a patient's complete medical records in an electronic archive accessible to medical professionals. The reports include all records of operations or treatments that do not require hospital admission. Ambulatory EHR systems allow physicians to monitor a patient's medical history and long-term care more easily. This software enables doctors to gather detailed, relevant information about each patient, resulting in a comprehensive record of their health records. This extensive database assists doctors in getting a better understanding of patients' health, making potential diagnoses simpler. Ambulatory EHRs facilitate the exchange of healthcare information and communication among healthcare providers.

Market Drivers

Increasing Adoption of EHR Solutions to Propel the Market Growth

Healthcare IT (HCIT) is one of the fastest-growing industries, largely due to government regulations. EHRs are a central component of HCIT and Ambulatory EHRs, a digital version of outpatient medical history that includes demographics, progress notes, medications, treatment plans, vital signs, past medical history, immunizations, laboratory data, and radiology reports. EHRs are becoming a substantial element in the process of patient care delivery.  The adoption of EHR systems is beneficial for both patients and healthcare providers. It improves patient treatment, care coordination, and faster access to medical records. It also increases practice efficiency and saves costs by decreasing paperwork.  EHRs also increase patient participation, transparency, and accuracy in prescribing, resulting in improved diagnostic and patient outcomes. These advantages have led to significant EHR implementation in the healthcare industry.

According to an article published in PubMed Central in January 2021, the adoption rates of Electronic Health Records (EHR) by office-based physicians have doubled between 2008 and 2015, from 42% to 89%. By 2016, over 60% of all office-based physicians made meaningful use of EHR. The US government invested billions of dollars in incentives to promote the meaningful use of EHR.

Similarly, as per an article published by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives in 2021, The adoption of patient flow software has increased significantly, with almost 87% of acute and ambulatory care facilities adopting an enterprise-wide patient flow system, and adoption in critical areas is also high. In addition, in March 2019, the Indian government introduced the Digital Information Security in Healthcare Act (DISHA) to provide legal protection to digital healthcare data and ensure its safety. DISHA intends to regulate the entire process of generating, collecting, storing, analyzing, transmitting, and owning patient health data and personally identifiable information.

Moreover, the increasing number of ambulatory surgical centers due to the advantages they offer is also a market-driving factor. An ambulatory surgical center allows patients to be discharged within 23 hours of care, which reduces the risk of infection. Additionally, the cost in ambulatory settings is lower for both the patient and payer due to the lower cost base across staffing, space, and supplies. These factors lead to the growth in ambulatory care centers and the increasing trend of patients shifting towards ambulatory care rather than an inpatient setting. As a result, the demand for the adoption of ambulatory EHR solutions is likely to increase, thereby contributing to market growth.

Delivery Mode-Based Insights

The ambulatory EHR market is bifurcated into cloud-based and on-premise solutions based on delivery mode. The cloud-based solutions segment held the largest market share in 2022; it is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during 2022–2030 owing to its cost-effectiveness and user-friendly software models. Cloud-based solutions deliver computing services, including software, databases, and analytics, over the Internet. Unlike traditional solutions, healthcare providers don't require the physical deployment of computing instruments like servers and storage units on their premises. For instance, in January 2023, Ospitek Inc. introduced the latest update of the company's proprietary surgical coordination platform, VIEW, for live patient charting for ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs). This latest feature is fully integrated into Ospitek's existing suite of cloud-based, IoT, and AI-enhanced surgical coordination features.

Applications-Based Insights

Based on applications, the ambulatory EHR market is segmented into practice management, patient management, e-prescribing, referral management, and other applications.
