•China’s huge population, territorial differences, and disproportionate healthcare resource allocation have resulted in different regional healthcare developments.
•The development of the healthcare information system in China strongly correlates with its regional economic developments and number of hospitals.
•Rapid growth was observed in healthcare IT investments in the eastern provinces of China, with large Tier-3 hospitals investing in advanced CIS, clinical decision support systems, and health analytics.
•Interoperability issues, undeveloped basic infrastructure, and insufficient funding are the main factors inhibiting nationwide electronic health record (EHR) developments and population health management implementation.
•Public hospitals accounted for over % of China’s total health IT investments in 2013.
•Strong hardware investments were observed in economically undeveloped and developing regions of China.
•Hospital information systems (HIS) accounted for over xx% of the total healthcare information systems expenditure in 2013.
•Favorable government policies drive strong growth in electronic medical record (EMR) solutions and regional health integration systems.
•Strong demand for hardware systems and solutions was noted in economically undeveloped and developing regions in the western and central regions of China.
•Wealthier cities in the eastern region present strong growth opportunities for CIS, advanced software, and healthcare analytics solution providers.
•Development of Regional Health Information Networks (RHINs) has created opportunities for EHR and other clinical solutions.
Scope and Segmentation
•Healthcare information systems can be broadly divided into the following two segments:
oHospital Information Systems (HIS) and
oClinical Information Systems (CIS)
•Hospital Information Systems (HIS) include specialized information systems for revenue management, financial management, human resource management, customer relationship management, knowledge management, and supply chain management.
•Clinical Information Systems (CIS) include laboratory information systems (LIS), radiology information systems (RIS), picture archiving and communication systems (PACS); electronic medical records (EMR) and electronic health records (EHR), as well as specialized information management systems for aesthesia, blood bank, intensive care unit (ICU), and surgery.
•The scope of this study excludes hardware solutions as well as specialized IT services.
