Growing emphasis on healthcare cost optimization will drive the market growth    

The notion of electronic health information exchange (HIE) is critical in improving the quality, speed, safety, and cost of patient care by improving access to and exchange of patient health information. The electronic exchange of health data among clinicians and physicians eliminates the need for unnecessary paper and record handling costs. Furthermore, HIE can improve the completeness of patient records by reviewing the patient's history, current medications, and other health information at the same time during visits. Furthermore, timely sharing of patient information allows for better decision-making and avoids readmissions, medication errors, and the costs associated with re-testing.

Many health care professionals have discovered that electronic health records (EHRs) improve medical practice management by increasing practice efficiencies, functionalities, and cost savings. According to recent physician surveys, EHRs reduce the costs of transcription, storage, and documentation. In addition, according to a study published in the American Care of Managed Care in 2020, patients treated in hospitals with advanced EHRs paid 9.66 percent less than patients treated in hospitals without advanced EHRs. Furthermore, implementing certain strategies, such as the use of cloud-based solutions and the elimination of hidden fees, can result in significant cost savings. Such benefits provided by health information exchange are likely to accelerate the market's growth during the forecast period.

Furthermore, the market is expected to expand rapidly due to an increase in demand for health information exchange (HIE) systems, which is due to the growing need for the collection, storage, and secure exchange of large amounts of healthcare data.

Furthermore, one of the key growth drivers of the overall health information exchange market is the increased focus of government organizations on promoting the use of healthcare information technology to improve healthcare quality. Another driving factor of the health information exchange market is the growing need to reduce the costs of maintaining paper-based patient health records. Furthermore, according to an NCBI study, retrieving data from electronic health records is much faster and easier than accessing traditional hard copy records. This is expected to drive demand for health information exchange systems for the remainder of the forecast period. These factors, as mentioned above, have a significant impact on the overall health information exchange industry.

The need for significant investments in infrastructure development and the high cost of deployment is likely to hamper the market growth  

To successfully implement electronic health records solutions, hospitals must make significant investments in infrastructure development, such as increasing data storage and processing capabilities. Investments in developing such infrastructure become difficult for healthcare providers, whose financial resources are already stretched. In addition to infrastructure investments, additional costs are incurred for acquiring electronic medical report solutions, maintenance, training, and converting paper records to electronic records. Indirect costs, such as revenue losses due to the temporary loss of patient data, are also incurred. These are the major barriers to EMR solution adoption, primarily in small and medium-sized hospitals, limiting the growth of the health information exchange market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the health information exchange market has expanded significantly. Several factors drive the adoption of health information exchange during the pandemic, including a greater emphasis on the use of healthcare IT infrastructure for data transfer, ease of use, and cost reduction. For example, since the commencement of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, HealtHIE Nevada (US) has boosted patient data exchange by 36 percent. The requirement for EMR and EHR platforms to manage complex patient data has increased as patient loads have increased, driving the market growth during the pandemic. The demand for electronic medical reports and health report solutions to manage sophisticated patient data has increased as patient volumes have increased. Hospitals increasingly focus on enhancing their capabilities by integrating multiple hospital systems with electronic health records (EHRs). To successfully help healthcare professionals manage COVID-19 patients, the healthcare information exchange market has connected their EHR platforms with telehealth solutions and improved their software solutions. Cerner Corporation, Epic Systems, Allscripts, and MEDITECH, among others, have connected their EHR platforms with telehealth technologies to give healthcare providers the option of virtual patient visits. Such activities will help to grow the industry for health data exchange.

Segment Analysis

The hybrid model segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2029)         

The hybrid approach incorporates elements of both centralized and decentralized models. The SDE (Software Development Engineer) in this paradigm does not operate as an HIO (Health Information Organization); hence clinical data is not supported. Each company handles its data individually in a hybrid architecture, with some data physically kept and controlled in a central place for analytics and population health management. Hybrid models have several advantages, including the potential to leverage current HIEs, accommodate diverse populations, and reduce privacy and liability concerns. As a result of the benefits provided by the hybrid model, the market is likely to grow at a healthy rate over the forecast period.

According to BrightFocus Foundation, 2020, 11 million people in the United States have some form of age-related macular degeneration which is expected to double to nearly 22 million by 2050. An increasing number of populations facing these eye problems is a major factor contributing to the significant growth of the segment in the forecast period.
