Due to the recent COVID–19, it has also been observed that there is an increase in stress, anxiety, depression, frustration, and fear among the population due to the pandemic, which can increase the prevalence of mental health conditions. Thus, the rising mental health population will boost the online platforms for treatment and diagnosis and ultimately drive the behavioral/mental health software market.

Key Market Trends

The Electronic Health Record Segment is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share During the Forecast Period

As per the healthcare professionals, managing behavioral mental health and treating addiction is very different from dealing with family medicine practices and practices dedicated to various specialties like cardiology, oncology, or pediatrics. Adding to the complexities of behavioral/mental health and addiction medicine is the fact that organizations can be run on an in-patient basis, partial in-patient basis, or strictly outpatient basis.

The demand for EHR build specifically for mental health is increasing due to the increasing incidence of mental disorders across the world. As per the 2020 estimates of the World Bank Group, it was found that at least 10% of the population is affected with mental, neurological, and substance use disorders (MNS), and around 20% of children and adolescents suffer from some type of mental disorder globally every year.

A specialty-specific EHR makes a difference to the medical staff and patients associated with the management of behavioral/mental health. A behavioral health EHR provides advanced capabilities that general practices do not need.

With time, specialty healthcare providers, including mental health and behavioral health providers, have started to demand electronic health records (EHR) designed specifically for their needs. In a few cases, which involve medical EHRs, robust, well-constructed modules focused on their specialty.

Moreover, market players are frequently launching new products to enhance the market growth. In July 2020, Another company, DrFirst, introduced CareComplete, which will connect payers and providers with medical information in workflows at the point of care.

Additionally, the recent COVID 19 pandemic has created an increased focus on the Mental health EHR systems to cope with the situation. For instance, In March 2020, Credible Behavioral Health entered into a partnership with Change Healthcare to provide a free EHR software solution as support to behavioral health agencies challenged by the COVID-19 crisis.
