DUBLIN, Mar. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/cc5rmj/healthcare_it) has announced the addition of the "Healthcare IT Integration Market by Products, Services & Applications - Global Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.
Healthcare IT integration involves the implementation of a wide variety of electronic platforms that help in maintaining information about health and healthcare in general, which could be both for individuals as well as a group of patients. HCIT integration includes collection, storage, retrieval, and sharing of information between consumers, providers, governments, and insurers, among others. The information covered by HCIT can range from demographics, medical history, medications and allergies, and immunization status to radiology images and vital signs of the patient.
The healthcare IT integration market is influenced by an increasing need for integration in continually expanding hospitals and other healthcare organizations, which demands healthcare IT integration tools for building the interfaces between various departments/systems. As the adoption of electronic medical records grows, so does the importance of integrating increasingly complex data sets. The increasing healthcare costs, the increase in the aging population in most of the developed countries across Europe and North America, strong government support and initiatives, growing need to integrate healthcare systems, and high returns on investment are factors that further drive the market for healthcare IT integration across the globe. However, interoperability issues, the high cost of installation of healthcare IT integration solutions, and a fragmented end-users market are factors that limit the growth of this market to a certain extent.
North America commanded the largest share of 69.4% in the global market, with U.S. commanding the largest share of around 86.6% in 2013. This large share of the U.S. can be attributed to the fact that the U.S. is a well-established market for healthcare IT and HCIT integration. However, this market still has many opportunities within the U.S mainly due to the various initiatives taken by the government to promote HCIT. In addition, the presence of a large number of major hospitals in the country that demand an integrated healthcare network is another factor that is driving the market.
The prominent players in the market are InterSystems (U.S.), Corepoint (U.S.), Siemens (Germany), Orion Health (New Zealand), Infor (U.S.), Interfaceware (Canada), Enovacom (France), Cerner Corporation (U.S.), Capsule (U.S.), Accenture (Ireland), Capgemini (France), IBM Corporation (U.S.), Allscripts (U.S.), Oracle (U.S.), and AVI-SPL (U.S.).
