Global Population Health Management Market to Grow at an Impressive CAGR of 29.2% During the Forecast Period

The global population health management market size was valued at USD 18.92 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 29.2% during the forecast period. The management of population health is related to the aggregation of data of various patients across different health information technology resources. The data collected is then processed and translated into a single, actionable patient record. This allows healthcare providers to improve clinical as well as financial results for patients.

Due to the complex and dynamic nature of care delivery and payment structures, the need for population health programs incorporating multiple functionalities is growing. Medical, financial, and organizational data can be analyzed with the help of population health management (PHM) solutions. This, in turn, helps maximize quality and patient care.

Owing to the growing focus on value-based payment (VBP) and responsible care organizations, the health management program is also witnessing improvements in medical reimbursement (ACOs). The value-based payment models are known for the convenience they offer, which in turn, is driving the adoption of population health solutions by ACOs.

In order to offer high quality services to patients, ACOs, consisting of hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities, operate with the payers (private and public). Different disease management services that aid with the treatment of chronic illnesses have been implemented by private and public insurance companies. Such multidisciplinary efforts are supposed to contribute to successful results in counseling and are likely to recommend the most appropriate courses of action that need to be taken. In the U.S., successful large-scale trials have made important advances in disease control programs possible.

The global population health management market is driven by the growing geriatric population and the increasing burden of chronic diseases, and digitalization of healthcare systems. Further, with rising healthcare costs, the demand for affordable treatment options is growing significantly. This is also fueling the demand for population health management market. However, lack of data processing skills and qualified analysts and the inability to implement new technology can restrain the market growth.

On the other hand, a growing emphasis on value-based medicine and growth opportunities in the developing Asia-Pacific and LAMEA economies are expected to provide multiple market growth opportunities over the forecast period. With the current developments in population health management, however, clients are facing challenges related to data protection and reliability, increased compliance with legislation, and the processing of huge volumes of health data. The possibility of decreased service/product quality is also among the few factors that are expected to limit market growth in the coming days.

The focus of the market players is on acquisitions & mergers, the provision of tailored solutions, and the expansion of businesses in untapped commercial markets. Some of the important strategies pursued by these businesses to reinforce their market position are acquisitions and corporate alliances with other market players. In addition, as part of their commercialization strategies, businesses are investing massive sums in creating new products and platforms with enhanced and improved functionality.
