					Hospital Information Systems (HIS) - Global Opportunity Assessment, Competitive Landscape and
Market Forecasts to 2017

The Global Hospital Information Systems Market is Forecast to Grow at a CAGR of 10% from 2010–2017

The global Hospital Information Systems (HIS) market was valued at $7.4 billion in 2010, and is forecast
to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 10% to reach about $14.7 billion by 2017. The
high growth forecast for the period 2010–2017 is significantly influenced by accelerated efforts from the
public and private sectors around the world to contain rising healthcare costs and enhance quality of
care. The inflow of key Information Technology (IT) technologies such as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS),
dictation and speech recognition solutions, and mobile healthcare solutions into the healthcare market
space will also contribute substantially to growth prospects in this market. These technological
advancements attempt to offset major deterrents to IT adoption in healthcare settings, such as
significant upfront investments and ineptitude of medical professionals, with large electronic data entry
and handling. Rapid adoption in emerging economies due to enhanced focus of key healthcare IT players
will also accelerate growth of the HIS market. With the concept of interconnected healthcare systems
seeming to materialize, starting with the US healthcare IT market, vendors have accelerated their efforts
in assimilating necessary capabilities to tap the significant market potential. Intense market
consolidation activity has resurfaced in the last two years. This trend is expected to continue in the
future, considering the potential of the HIS market and its fragmented competitive landscape.

Initiatives from the private and public sector around the world, along with significant technological
advancements, are boosting the adoption of HIS by provider organizations. Rising healthcare costs and
rapid demographic changes have forced governments around the world to enhance the quality and
outreach of healthcare, while simultaneously reducing related expenses. The world population is
expected to exceed nine billion by 2050, while during the same period the population aged 65 years or
older is forecast to have tripled. As such, governments around the world face increasing concerns to
address financial restraints as well as efficiency and affordability limitations of healthcare.

These demographic trends have compelled governments to expand their efforts in pushing the adoption
of HIS to increase hospital productivity as well as clinical outcomes. Significant economic and legislative
incentives have been approved by governments in North America, several countries in Europe, and in
China and India, to promote digitalization of healthcare workflow. These incentives have been
instrumental in accelerating the adoption of HIS.

Government funding and the rising demand for better productivity and lower errors have spurred
technological advancements in the healthcare IT industry. Among prominent technologies which have
significantly contributed to positive adoption trends in this market are web-based and cloud-based HIS
solutions. These SaaS models have eliminated large upfront costs associated with the uptake of IT
infrastructure, thereby expanding the penetration of HIS into small and medium scale practices and
independent physicians. Other technological improvements such as integrated speech recognition
capabilities and advanced clinical decision support systems will continue to contribute significantly in
expanding the customer pool for HIS.
