The burgeoning requirement for advanced healthcare information systems, soaring investments being made by HIT players, the rising demand for remote patient monitoring services, and the ballooning support from various government agencies and organizations are the main factors driving the expansion of the global clinical decision support system (CDSS) market. According to the estimates of P&S Intelligence, a market research firm based in India, the market would grow exponentially in the coming years.
CDSSs are basically computer-based information systems that are built for helping healthcare providers implement clinical guidelines at the point of care. These systems use patient data and information for providing evidence-based medical treatment recommendations to healthcare practitioners, which helps them deliver better patient care and clinical outcomes. CDSSs are usually incorporated in electronic health records (EHRs) and integrated with several other computer-based functions that provide feedback on different quality indicators and patient care summary reports.
One of the biggest factors fueling the advancement of the clinical decision support system (CDSS) market is the soaring geriatric population across the world. According to the global aging population report published by United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), the global population of the people aged 60 years and above is increasing rapidly. The share of geriatric people in the global population was 9.2% in 1990 and it is predicted to rise to 11.7% in 2013.
Furthermore, the market is predicted to exhibit lucrative growth in Europe in the forthcoming years. This would be a result of the surging geriatric population and the growing incidence of chronic diseases in the region. The market will also record substantial progress in Asia-Pacific (APAC) in future, mainly on account of the rising occurrence of various chronic diseases, soaring investments being made in healthcare IT, and the increasing population of aging people in the region.
Thus, it is safe to say that the market is set for prosperous growth all over the world in the coming years, primarily because of the surging geriatric population, the rising incidence of various chronic and lifestyle-associated diseases, huge investments being in advanced healthcare technologies, and the growing adoption of technologically advanced and innovative systems in healthcare settings across the world.
