Market Insights and Analyst View:

An electronic health record is an electronic version of a patient's medical history that is maintained by the provider over time and may include all of the key administrative and clinical data, including demographics, progress notes, problems, medications, vital signs, past medical history, immunizations, laboratory data, and radiology reports, under a particular provider. The electronic health record automates access to information and has the potential to streamline the clinician's workflow. The electronic health record can also support other care-related activities directly or indirectly through various interfaces, including evidence-based decision support, quality management, and outcomes reporting. Increasing adoption of electronic health records, rising incentives by the federal government, and growing incidences of medication errors are driving the market growth.  

Growth Drivers: 

Increasing Adoption of Electronic Health Records

Electronic Health Records are becoming increasingly popular with the growing digitization of the healthcare industry. As per The New England Journal of Medicine, as soon as the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act became law in 2009, the federal government dedicated US$ 300 million to help healthcare facilities adopt a nationwide health information exchange system. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) also offered more than US$ 35,000 million in incentive payments for electronic health record adoption. According to the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), as of 2021, about 4 in 5 office-based physicians (78%) and almost all non-federal acute care hospitals (96%) adopted a certified electronic health record. This marked considerable 10-year progress when 28% of hospitals and 34% of physicians had adopted an electronic health record since 2011. As per Definitive Healthcare data from 2020, more than 89% of all hospitals had employed inpatient or ambulatory EHR systems.

Further, in May 2020, the US federal government proposed the Federal Health IT Strategic Plan 2020–2025 to mandate the use of electronic health record by healthcare providers. With the facts and statistics stated above, it is evident that the adoption rate of the electronic health record is expected to continue to improve during the forecast period.

Rising Incentives by the Federal Government

The government has invested billions in training health information technology workers and founding regional extension centers to provide technical advice. In 2009, as part of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, the federal government reserved US$ 27 billion for an incentive program that inspires hospitals and providers to implement electronic health record systems that would enable the health data historically confiscated in paper files to be shared among providers and use to improve the healthcare quality.

The Medicare Electronic Health Record Incentive Program is governed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). In the US, the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs offer incentives to hospitals, physicians, and other healthcare facilities for meaningful use of certified EHR technology. A qualified professional or hospital can get a maximum incentive amount of up to US$ 63,750 through the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program and up to US$ 44,000 through the Medicare EHR Incentive Program. This incentive program succeeded in inspiring many healthcare facilities to adopt EHR systems.
