Health Information Exchange Market– Future Analysis, Overview, Growth Opportunities and Forecast till 2025
The global health information exchange market in terms of revenue is poised to grow at a CAGR of 12.2%.

The global Health Information Exchange market in terms of revenue was estimated to be worth $1.1 billion in 2020 and is poised to reach $2.0 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 12.2% from 2020 to 2025 according to a latest report published by MarketsandMarkets™. Growth in this market is driven by factors such as the growing focus on patient-centric care delivery, the growing need to curtail healthcare costs, government initiatives for enhancing patient care and safety, and government funding for healthcare interoperability. On the other hand, factors such as lack of true interoperability solutions, lack of standards, data privacy and security concerns, the need for significant investments in infrastructure development and the use of outdated legacy systems are expected to restrict market growth to a certain extent in the coming years.

Health Information Exchange Market Dynamics 

Driver: Growing focus on patient-centric care delivery

 The increasing penetration of communication technologies in the healthcare industry results in a gradual shift away from institution-centric frameworks and towards patient-centered care delivery. Patient-centric care is associated with a number of advantages, including reduced hospital admissions, decreased expenditure, and reduced pressure on an already burdened system. Increased engagement of healthcare systems with stakeholders helps decrease overall healthcare expenses. Also, patients who report positive experiences have more trust in their providers and are less likely to switch physicians, allowing for more continuity in care. Owing to these benefits, patients are increasingly opting for more personalised treatments to better integrate their opinions and needs with those of their caregivers. This creates a greater demand among patients for their health data and also for platforms that can enable effective communication with doctors and researchers.


 Opportunity: Improving healthcare infrastructure in emerging markets

 The healthcare industry in emerging countries such as India, China, Brazil, and Mexico is expected to offer significant growth opportunities for companies offering health information exchange solutions. This can be attributed to the increasing healthcare data and the rising adoption of health IT solutions in these countries.


 Restraint: Use of outdated legacy systems

 Legacy systems (usually electronic medical record systems) with limited interoperability capabilities are those systems implemented prior to the introduction of common national standards. These systems are still in use today. Their data storage, input, and inventory of data items are unique and often proprietary. The problem associated with legacy systems is that they are designed for a particular task or facility. Many of these systems are designed to prevent data exchange with other vendors' solutions to protect market shares and encourage purchases by hospitals or clinic chains. The information in healthcare facilities is also enormously complex because it covers different types of data, such as patient administration, organisational information, clinical data, and laboratory and pathology data.

 Challenge: Data privacy concerns

 Health information exchange solutions have several useful applications in healthcare. However, the adoption of these solutions is restricted to an extent owing to data security and privacy concerns. Patient health data is protected under federal laws in many countries, and any data breaches or failure to maintain its integrity result in financial and legal penalties. Patient data contains private, personal, or confidential information and requires strict safeguarding to prevent its misuse. These solutions are required to adhere to all the data security protocols implemented by governments and regulatory authorities, since the interoperable solutions used for patient care require access to multiple health data sets.


 North America held the largest share of the global health information exchange market

 Geographically, the health information exchange market is segmented into North America, the Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and the Rest of the World (RoW). North America accounted for the largest share of the health information exchange market, primarily due to the significant growth in the hospital expenditure in the region, initiatives by the US government to improve patient care and patient safety, high adoption of healthcare IT technologies, and the need to reduce healthcare costs. However, the Asia Pacific health information exchange market is anticipated to witness the highest growth during the forecast period, owing to factors such as the growing patient volume, growing focus on healthcare digitalization, and the rising need to reduce healthcare costs.
