Furthermore, chronic diseases such as arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), osteoporosis among others has increased significantly in the past few years. This has led to opt for radiology information systems to manage the functional aspects of healthcare facilities, thereby fostering the market growth.

Radiology information system (RIS) is a specialized healthcare software solution designed to manage and streamline the administrative, operational and business functions within a radiology department and imaging centre. A Radiology Information System (RIS) is a specialized software system designed to manage and organize the workflow and data associated with radiology departments and imaging centers. It is a central repository that stores, manages, and distributes radiological images, patient information, and related data. Also, they enable streamlined workflows, improved communication and collaboration among healthcare professionals, and effective management of radiology data and resources.


COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the radiology information systems market. The increasing number of COVID-19 cases has highlighted the demand for radiology information systems (RIS) for imaging procedures, particularly chest imaging for COVID-19 cases. The risk of COVID-19 infection and imposed lockdowns had propelled the demand for telemedicine and RIS systems that facilitated remote access to patient data and reporting capabilities.

Furthermore, workflow optimization features helped to manage the increased workload, while enhanced communication tools facilitated the collaboration among radiologists and healthcare professionals. Thus, the pandemic had accelerated the adoption and utilization of RIS systems, emphasizing the need for efficient workflow management, remote capabilities, enhanced communication and data analytics in the radiology industry.

Radiology Information Systems Market Trends

Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), arthritis, diabetes among others is expected to boost the market size. For instance, according to the GLOBOCAN International Agency 2020, lung cancer accounted for approximately 2.2 million new cases and 1.8 million associated deaths, followed by colorectal accounting for 9.4%, liver for 8.3%, stomach for 7.7%, and female breast cancer for 6.9% of the total cancer patients. Thus, the rising burden of cancer and growing demand for effective diagnostic imaging solutions to support accurate and timely diagnosis, treatment planning and monitoring has boosted the adoption of RIS systems.

Furthermore, RIS system enables healthcare providers to efficiently manage imaging studies, track patient history and streamline reporting, leading to improved patient care and outcomes. Thus, various features offered by the RIS system is expected to drive the market value.

Radiology Information Systems Market Restraint

Increasing concern regarding patient data privacy and security may significantly impact the market expansion. Data breaches are largely noted to act as a cause of concern. For instance, according to the HIPAA Journal, as of 2021, an average of 1.95 healthcare data breaches of 500 or more records were reported each day. Similarly, in 2021, companies and business associates paid nearly USD 6 million for HIPAA settlements and civil monetary policies. Thus, growing reliance on digital platforms and protecting sensitive patient information from unauthorized access and breaches has become a major concern, thereby impeding the market share.
