Reasons for Doing This Study
In the 21st century, where every field is impacted by information technology (IT), healthcare is no exception. IT has become an extremely essential part of the healthcare system. Governments worldwide are trying to reduce healthcare costs, and IT is at the center of this objective. IT in healthcare was initially used for record keeping, easy communication across healthcare providers, to improve the visualization of the human anatomy and improved diagnosis. Global healthcare leaders and large healthcare organizations see an expanded role for IT in healthcare analytics.

The global healthcare industry is undergoing a transformation led by the biological and medical sciences. These areas of science are driving the changes and improvements in healthcare outcomes. At the same time, the healthcare industry in developed economies is positioned to become analytics-driven. Analytics is the systematic use of data developed through statistical, quantitative, predictive, cognitive and emerging models to drive fact-based decision making for planning, management, measurement and learning. Analytics generally uses historical data to model future trends, evaluate decisions and measure performance to improve business processes and outcomes. These analytical tools are at the center of evidence-based medicine.

Over the past several years, there has been an exponential increase in the application of healthcare information technologies and their use by healthcare providers. The trend has been supported by government regulation, especially in the United States, the spread and availability of various applications, the rapidly decreasing costs of acquisition and storage of structured and unstructured health data, and the adoption of interoperability and standards across healthcare organizations.

The market for healthcare analytics is highly fragmented with many large and small players. Major players in the market include Oracle (U.S.), IBM (U.S.), Verisk (U.S.), and others.

Chapter 2: Summary and Highlights
Global healthcare is currently in a very crucial phase of transformation. There is mounting pressure to reduce costs, improve quality and satisfy customers as it has been moving from a provider-driven model to a consumer-driven model. At the same time, the growing aging populations, increasing chronic conditions and rising awareness about healthcare is steering the demand for consumer-driven healthcare services. These factors are, in turn, generating demand for healthcare analytic tools to meet high expectations. Healthcare analytics is a growing force in the global healthcare IT market and a major sector driving the entire healthcare IT industry.

Healthcare analytics is the next step in following the inception of electronic medical records (EMRs) and electronic health records (EHRs) to facilitate the meaningful use of data. The market for healthcare analytics is estimated to reach a value of nearly $6.2 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.8% to nearly $14.9 billion by 2022.

The market for healthcare analytics is highly fragmented with many large and small players. Major players in the market are Oracle (U.S.), IBM (U.S.) and Verisk (U.S.), among others. Business analytics accounted for the largest share of the market for healthcare analytics in 2015 at 70%.

The clinical analytics market is expected to reach $6.2 billion in 2022, at a CAGR of 17.7%. The highest growth is projected to come from clinical analytics as greater emphasis has recently been placed on this segment than in previous years. With the use of predictive analytics, population analytics and clinical analytics are expected to be the driving forces of the market for healthcare analytics.

Other major drivers of the market for healthcare analytics are U.S. government initiatives. The United States is a major market in terms of value and is driving the market for healthcare analytics with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and reimbursements. In today’s world, technology is changing rapidly, while innovations are continually being discovered, and they are having a positive impact on the healthcare analytics market.

With margin pressures increasing worldwide, analytics are looked upon as a tool to reduce costs. Payer-provider convergence and rising healthcare costs, along with the other market drivers, are creating many opportunities that are boosting the healthcare analytics market. These factors include EHRs increasing data volumes, the rising importance of value-based medicine due to peer pressure, health information exchange (HIE), easy-to-handle big data, emergency care and preventive care, time and cost savings, data clarity, and transparency and fraud detection.

The market is challenged by restraints such as a lack of uniformity in healthcare data, resistance to an ITbased approach by medical professionals, operational gap between payer and provider front, financial constraints, ensuring patient confidentiality and traditional techniques.
