Growing Adoption of IoT Enabled Solutions for Healthcare Surveillance Favoring Growth
The global Clinical communication and collaboration market was valued at ~ US$ 240 Mn in 2014, and is expected to exceed ~ US$ 370 Mn mark by the end of the year 2019. The Clinical communication and collaboration market is projected to grow at a CAGR of nearly 14% during the forecast period, and is expected to reach a market value of ~ US$ 1.3 Bn by the end of the forecast year 2029.
Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) to Boost Market Growth
Increasing digitalization in the healthcare industry has led to an improvement in the performance parameters of hospitals. The deployment of clinical communication and collaboration solutions in hospital systems helps them improvise the CDI (Clinical Documentation Improvements). CDI is an important aspect of clinical communication and collaboration platforms. CDI minimizes a patient’s physical efforts, as using this clinical communication and collaboration feature, patients, physicians and hospital staff can share medical reports with each other. These medical records and other patient related documents are loaded onto the Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems. This feature is expected to be responsible for driving the demand of clinical communication and collaboration solutions during the forecast period.
Large format hospitals and other clinical institutions started to face the problem of reaching out the most responsible physicians, as traditional ways of communication were using pagers or a common alarm system at the hospital. With the deployment of clinical communication and collaboration solutions, clinicians can easily contact patients as well as nurses, physicians, and other hospital staff. The use of smartphones, wearable devices such as bands, badges in patients’ arms, and other sensor-based signals are creating an ease for clinicians to reach out the most responsible physician of the hospital. This helps in time reduction for attending to a patient at the hospital. Thus, the difficulty faced by clinicians to reach physicians is resulting in an increasing demand for clinical communication and collaboration solutions in this region.
