US Electronic Health Records market Analysis Segmentation

By Application:

In 2019, the clinical application of electronic health records dominated the U.S. electronic health records market share of around 30%. One of the key EHR application areas in the healthcare system is clinical patient care. The use of EHRs as a source of data in clinical investigations could involve additional considerations, planning, and management. The demand for complete, up-to-date, and accurate medical records drives the adoption of EHR in the clinical segment.

The administrative application segment will grow at a CAGR of close to 6% during the forecast period. As healthcare technology offers easy to healthcare organizations to improve their administrative operations, the segment is likely to grow. Although an EHR’s primary function is to collect and manage clinical data, an organization’s administrative processes can realize meaningful gains on several metrics when an EHR is incorporated into administrative operations.

Based on cost-accounting applications, health care cost-accounting systems have been adopted widely. In the US, a high percentage focuses on reducing the cost of healthcare, and the adoption of EHR and health IT systems has a significant role to play in achieving that.

By End-user:

In 2019, the hospital segment was the largest end-user segment. It generates tremendous medical data daily. Hence, EHRs have become an integral part of patient data management owing to the convenience and increased productivity. The benefits offered by in-house EHR systems, including cost factor and time saving to large-scaled hospitals, are responsible for the revenue growth. Nearly 90% of hospitals across the country used electronic health record systems in 2018. Computerized prescriber-order-entry (CPOE) systems with clinical decision support are used by 96% of hospitals, according to the ASHP National Survey of Pharmacy Practice in Hospital Settings: Prescribing and Transcribing—2016.

Specialty centers, on the other hand, are expected to display the highest growth over the forecast period. The market share of specialty centers was recorded at close to 20% in 2019, which is expected to reach 21% in 2025. Specialty centers are convenient for both healthcare providers and patients. They rely on these systems for effective data management. The US will lead to the adoption of EHR in specialty hospitals across North America. The patients in the region widely prefer private hospitals as the variety of amenities offered by private hospitals is better.

By Deployment:

On-premise deployment involves hosting the EHR software on in-house servers maintained and implemented by an organization’s IT team. Cloud-based is an online software-as-a-service implementation that hosts the software in the cloud where users access it via the internet. Both come with unique pros and cons that can impact decision-making. The cloud-based segment will be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The cloud-based segment dominated the U.S. EHR market share with 56% in 2019. An increasing number of hospitals have shifted their preference for EMR systems from on-premise to cloud-based models, contributing to their market growth. Cloud EHR systems have a lower cost than on-premise products. Since cloud-based EHRs do not require capital investment in hardware, software, and network personnel, they are economical to implement and operate.
