DUBLIN, May 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/9fgtfd/home_healthcare) has announced the addition of the "Global Home Healthcare Software (Agency, Clinical Management System, Telehealth, Hospice) Market - Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.
Globally, the major concerns prevailing in healthcare systems are the skyrocketing healthcare cost, growth in aging population, high prevalence of chronic disorders, disconnected healthcare industry due to its fragmented nature, scattered patient data, and rise in patient expectation for accessible, affordable, and high quality care.
Home healthcare software solutions such as homecare EHR, medication management, electronic point-of-care documentation, billing, scheduling, invoicing, and others have emerged as lucrative solutions to counter the increasing healthcare cost and manage the scattered patient data in home settings.
Although the adoption of homecare software is slower than expected, factors such as healthcare reforms, unprecedented investments in healthcare IT, and government initiatives to promote implementation of homecare software will reshape the healthcare system.
Integrated homecare software products have emerged as effective tools to resolve the issue of medication errors, and to curtail the growing healthcare cost. Moreover, the deployment of new technologies such as mobile healthcare, telehealth solutions, and cloud computing will add significant value to healthcare systems. The global homecare software and service market is estimated to reach $6.4 billion by 2018, at a CAGR of 13.4% during the forecast period (2013-2018).
The major bottlenecks of the market are growing concerns over security, interoperability, integration challenges, costs incurred while integrating and implementing solutions, incomplete or poor quality of data entry, poor IT skills among staff, and poor financial support from governments in certain regions of Europe and Asia.
