Upcoming Market Research Reports in Healthcare IT
In general terms, cloud computing may be defined as an internet based computing where storing, access to data and programs are achieved through internet instead of computer’s hard drive. Cloud computing eliminates the need of local server or personal system for data sharing and other computing resources. One of the major advantages of cloud computing is that it globalizes the workforce at low expenses.
Clinical Information Systems (CIS) is a computer aided system that manages, stores and rechecks all medical information in hospitals such as health history of patients, prescriptions, doctor's notes and any other special comment whereas all information is electronically kept together. By capturing clinical data CIS makes the decision making process and clinical care delivery more efficient and effective and also helps to replace the paper work.
Recent advances in technology have resulted into a new healthcare interventional approach and demand for lowering of the overall cost of treatment. This has led to the development of online patient monitoring devices. In online patient monitoring patient are continuously observed and analyzed without being hospitalized. This technique is alternatively known as remote patient monitoring or mobile patient monitoring as well.
Health informatics is defined as the knowledge, skills, and tools that enable the information to be collected, managed, used and shared for supporting the delivery of healthcare services and promoting health. Health informatics is one of the fastest growing segments of information technology and computer science.
The need for accurate information systems arises primarily from the increasing number of critical patients, since they can deliver information about the various medical parameters of patients accurately. High acuity information system is engaged in maintaining electronic patient records (EPR) coupled with computerized physician order entry (CPOE).
Digital Pathology is referred to as creation of image based information environment by the usage of computer technology. It allows the creation, sharing, analysis and interpretation of digital images through glass slides. Digital Pathology is conversion of glass slide into digital slides that can be analyzed, viewed and managed.
Healthcare IT is a collective term used for solutions offered by information technology in the healthcare industry. These solutions offer better data management and secure exchange of health information among customers, governments, providers and insurers. There is a huge demand of general applications such as electronic health and medical record system and computerized physician order entry system along with specialized solutions such as clinical trials management system, data mining system and clinical decision support system.
The global market for ePharmacies is projected to reach USD 51.75 billion by the end of 2017 owing to the increasing number of tech-savvy people and rising demand for prescription drugs. The ePharmacies meeting the regulatory standards set by the government and following ethical business practices are likely to emerge as safe, affordable, and accessible source of prescription drugs in the near future. The present scenario reflects higher penetration of the ePharmacy industry in developed countries as compared to the developing market. This is mainly because of the increasing use of Internet in developed economies.

Increasing costs, conflicts in excellence and inefficiency are the prime challenges faced by the global healthcare system. These challenges have created an improved sense of necessity to meet the objective of improving healthcare for patients and reducing the cost of treatment by healthcare providers. In order to meet these objectives, both the public and private healthcare providers have spearheaded new forms of payment reform and care delivery. Among these initiatives, healthcare IT plays a crucial and fundamental role as a new model of patient care and has immense potential to improve the overall excellence, safety and efficiency of the healthcare system. Currently, there are very few healthcare providers who have fully adopted healthcare IT but surveys indicate that healthcare providers are striving towards improving their investment or funding towards IT. Drivers for funding include the assurance of safety, quality and efficiency gains by the healthcare providers. However, the barriers include intricacy of IT execution, high cost of implementation, which often requires noteworthy infrastructural changes and work process. The Health Information Technology and Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act was enacted into law in 2009 as a part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. According to this act, hospitals and eligible professionals including dentists, physicians, podiatrists, etc. will receive financial incentives for their meaningful use of certified Electronic Health Records (EHR).
