Increasing healthcare costs owing to growing portfolio of healthcare services, sophistication of treatment coupled with need for reducing expenses and improving operational efficiencies will augment the market growth. Also, growing amount of complex data due to transition from written to electronic health records and its ability to improve physician practice will further foster the market expansion. Furthermore, technological advancements along with increasing interest of investors in healthcare analytical tools is another favoring factor that is boosting the market progression.

Healthcare analytics refers to the use of huge amount of collected data to provide organizations with actionable insights. These insights are developed through analytical methods such as descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics to drive fact-based decision making. Also, healthcare analytics extensively uses data for quantitative and qualitative analysis. Further, these decisions improve planning, management, measurement and learning.

The COVID-19 outbreak is encouraging the adoption of healthcare analytic solutions, especially predictive analytics to actively identify individuals that are at greater health risk and to help focus on offering timely treatment. For instance, in April 2020, Cleveland Clinic researchers created a predictive model that can forecast patient volume, bed capacity, ventilator availability, and other metrics. The model provides timely, reliable information to optimize care delivery for COVID-19 and other patients. Also, various market players and regulatory bodies are rapidly developing artificial intelligence and data analytics in healthcare to conduct research on the virus. For instance, in July 2020, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Energy (DOE) had announced a new big data analytics initiative to coordinate and share COVID-19 information. Thus, increasing use of healthcare analytical tools and development of solutions to conduct research during the pandemic have fuelled the industry growth.

Emergence of big data in healthcare sector will spur the healthcare analytics market value

Emergence of big data in healthcare sector will serve as a high impact rendering factor for the industry expansion.
