Enterprise Imaging Solutions Market Size

Enterprise Imaging Solutions Market size was valued at around USD 1.1 billion in 2020 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 12.1% between 2021 and 2027. Increasing adoption of vendor neutral archives (VNAs) owing to improved compatibility with older systems and longer lifecycle management along with rising demand for standard-based medical image management are some of the factors augmenting the market growth. Enterprise imaging solutions allows the clinician to have better productivity and patient care coordination due to easy access and sharing of electronic health records (EHR). These attributes enables the staff to manage their workflow and get a clear understanding of patient's medical records, which in turn contributes to better patient care services by the healthcare providers.

The increasing acceptance of value-based care pay model, especially in developed countries will further boost the implementation of enterprise imaging solutions in the coming years. Growing digitisation in healthcare sector is also contributing to the market expansion and is projected to show similar trend in the coming period led by high deployment of enterprise imaging solutions.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has affected the healthcare sector in an unprecedented manner. Due to travel restrictions, patients had to cancel their scheduled appointments with radiologists and in some countries elective imaging services were postponed/cancelled, thus resulting in decline in imaging volume of hospitals. During the pandemic, various hospitals deployed home picture archiving and communication system (PACS) for their faculty members. This encouraged the members to work on the Home PACS system as per their convenience which helped hospitals to continue imaging services during the crisis, thereby fuelling the market revenue.

The COVID-19 pandemic further highlighted the need for deploying enterprise imaging solutions as there was a consistent requirement of a collaborative platform that enables task automation, real-time remote reporting and others. Thus, considering all these benefits, various healthcare providers started opting for enterprise imaging solutions in order to provide better patient care services.

Increasing government initiatives coupled with improved EHR integration will propel the enterprise imaging solutions market demand

Governments around the world are coming up with supportive policies that will promote healthcare IT acceptance in several countries which in turn will drive the industry growth. One of the parameters highlighting this trend is the consistent rise in adoption of connected healthcare solutions such as VNA, EHR, and PACS, among others. The required regulatory push for growing usage of advanced enterprise imaging solutions was provided by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009. The HITECH Act motivated the healthcare providers to adopt electronic health records (EHR) to have improved privacy and security measures for the healthcare data. This was achieved by offering financial incentives for acceptance of EHRs and imposing penalties for violations of the HIPAA security and privacy rules. Therefore, these advantages related to enterprise imaging solutions will spur the market value.

Adoption of Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Electronic Medical Records (EMR) has recorded notable growth since last decade across healthcare facilities around the world. Imaging information which accounts for significant portion of a patient's medical data finds trouble in integrating with EHR systems. However, PACS solutions allows an easy, and unified platform for transferring imaging data to EHR systems. This will provide clinicians a complete and detailed understanding of patient's medical history along with the imaging information.

Enterprise Imaging Solutions Market Analysis

The on-premise segment held 34% of the enterprise imaging solutions market share in 2020 impelled by the increased level of data security offered by on-premise enterprise imaging solutions. Some healthcare providers prefer on-premise solutions as they do not want to risk transferring their sensitive data on cloud platform. Healthcare providers using on-premise enterprise imaging solutions can have customization as per their requirement, which in turn will influence the demand and adoption of enterprise imaging solutions.

The PACS segment exceeded USD 580 million in 2020 on account of several benefits provided such as significant reduction in physical and time-barriers related to traditional film-based image retrieval, display and distribution. PACS are widely used by the healthcare providers as it stores the image in digital form, thereby eliminating the need for maintaining hard copies of images. All the above advantages are expected to enhance the usage of PACS systems, especially in developing countries considering its affordability.

The diagnostic imaging centers segment in the enterprise imaging solutions market is predicted to showcase 12.6% growth rate till 2027. Factors such as increasing use of diagnostic imaging, rise in number of imaging volumes of patients, and availability of advanced technology in diagnostic centers are fuelling the market expansion. Owing to increasing health awareness among consumers, the acceptance of diagnostic imaging has witnessed substantial surge in recent times resulting in augmenting the market demand. Additionally, favourable reimbursement policies are anticipated to further boost the demand and usage of enterprise imaging solutions.
