On the other hand, in emerging economies, due to limited public IT infrastructure the large-scale adoption of healthcare IT solutions is in the long term vision.

Progress in IT Infrastructure and Advent of IoT to offer Lucrative Opportunity

The worldwide healthcare API market is fuelled by the increasing adoption of API-driven electronic health records (EHR), which allows easy assimilation of patient information. Today, patient-centric healthcare is the focus of healthcare providers, which has led to improved quality of care, better outcomes, and greater patient satisfaction.

In the recent years, rising demand for patient-centric healthcare delivery via application programming interface (API) has been the focus of healthcare providers, and have thus spurred demand for healthcare API solutions.

Healthcare APIs that drive patient-centric applications create new ways for providers to engage and connect with patients through mobile, web, social apps. Moving a step ahead and developing internal APIs allows healthcare companies to offer their employees and partners new tools. These tools help streamline operations and deliver higher quality of care. In healthcare services, fast API solutions are a must where access to information is critical that can impact life or death decisions.

Using health apps and services, APIs can help patients gather and report health data. For example, an individual with diabetes could document blood-sugar levels, which provides more information to doctors when making diagnoses. APIs also helps facilitate the recording and management of physician-reported data, and they enable analysis of a healthcare environment for decision-makers improve operations and cut overhead costs.
