Medical Terminology Software Market Analysis

The medical terminology software market is expected to register a CAGR of 18.9% over the forecast period.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals are receiving a lot of patient-related data. Further treatment and care are provided to a patient using this information. Governments are making efforts to adopt cutting-edge healthcare software solutions in order to reduce the number of deaths by gathering and managing the data in a uniform way and using it to reduce medical errors during treatments. The market is expected to show better growth during the forecast period due to the increasing dependency of hospitals and the healthcare sector on digital platforms.

The terms of infrastructure and content of the healthcare ecosystems are currently very uneven. A healthcare organization may manage 50 or more different IT systems, each with its own architecture and information related to medical terminology. Companies struggle to use isolated clinical data because of these linguistic barriers, which has an impact on activities further down the line like data analytics. The problem is made considerably more difficult when a healthcare organization tries to share data with other medical partners. The crucial information in the situation is dispersed among multiple healthcare organizations and numerous distinct systems. Initiatives to enhance the integration, openness, and cooperation of the healthcare system are severely hampered by the absence of a common clinical language across a vast number of different systems. Thus, the need of clinical language through medical terminology software will drive the market.

Clinical data from both inside and outside the Electronic Health Record (EHR) system must be fully utilized by healthcare organizations to meet growing demand. Clean, trustworthy data are necessary to maintain the integrity of the information offered within the healthcare industry. On the other hand, hospitals have numerous difficulties in adjusting to changes in standards, coding, and the sharing of patient data between other healthcare providers. The current state of the healthcare ecosystem's electronic health record exchange does not function as intended, and using external data is inefficient. If techniques to effectively standardize, organize, clean, and manage clinical data are not applied, the amount of detail is lost through information sharing due to human or machine reading errors. According to data reported by AHA IT Supplement Survey for hospital EHR adoption; National Ambulatory Care Survey and National Electronic Health Record Surveys (NEHRS) on March 2022, about three-quarters of office-based physicians (72%) and nearly all non-federal acute care hospitals (96%) had adopted a certified EHR. EHR system users find it challenging to make sense of the prevailing disorganized data because of the existing congested data environment within EHRs, which raises concerns about data quality and reliability. Therefore, purchasing suitable healthcare terminology software is advised, boosting the segment growth.

Therefore, the factors mentioned above are attributed collectively to the studied market growth over the forecast period. However, reluctance to use terminology solutions over conventional practices are expected to hinder the market growth over the forecast period.

Medical Terminology Software Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Medical Terminology Software Market according to our research experts:

Reimbursement is Expected to Witness High Growth Over the Forecast Period

Reimbursement is managed care payment by a 3rd party such as insurance company, to a hospital, physician, or other health care provider for services rendered to an insured/beneficiary. Reimbursement is found to hold the largest share which can be attributed to the growing patient volume and rising prescription drug costs are putting a strain on individuals. Additionally, stakeholders' interest in healthcare compensations is growing because of the ongoing increase in healthcare costs. As costs for medical examinations, treatments, and prescription drugs rise, so do healthcare expenditures. According to the U.S. Census Bureau report, published in 2020, all four cardiovascular risk factors are expected to increase from 2025 to 2060, with the largest percentage increase in diabetes (39.3% increase to 55 million persons), followed by dyslipidemia (27.6% increase to 126 million persons), hypertension (25.1% increase to 162 million persons) and obesity (18.3% increase to 126 million persons). According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2020, about 697,000 people in the United States died from heart disease out of which coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease, killing 382,820 people and about 805,000 people in the United States have a heart attack every year. Interest among stakeholders in healthcare compensation and reimbursement will grow as the prevalence of chronic diseases and the cost of treatment rise therefore driving the growth. 

Various efforts from both governmental and commercial entities have also played an important part in the segment's growth. For instance, the United States' Affordable Care Act is focused on giving low-income households access to health insurance. The law promotes innovative methods for delivering healthcare that lower costs and increase access to affordable health insurance for more people. Many small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) may be tempted to manage employee health benefits on their own. Even though it might seem like the less expensive option, any mistakes that result in a plan being out of compliance can cost both the employees and the employers thousands of dollars. Therefore, purchasing suitable healthcare reimbursement software is advised, boosting the segment growth.

Medical Terminology Software Market: Adoption of Electronic Health Records by Hospital Service Type, in Percentage, 2021

North America is Expected to Dominate the Medical Terminology Software Market

North America is expected to dominate the market owing to factors such the mass acceptance of diagnostic device connectivity and integration solutions to reduce healthcare spending, the growing proportion of chronic patients in the US, and rigorous rules and guidelines set by the regulatory government and non-government governing bodies such as the Federal Communications Commission and the Centres for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Patient data is complicated, private, and occasionally unstructured. Prospects for improved patient care depend on integrating this data into the healthcare delivery system, which is a barrier that must be surmounted. Even though EHRs have been in use for more than ten years, the market has recently accelerated due to government initiatives in many countries to improve patient data privacy. For instance, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act's adoption of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act gave hospitals and doctors who showed considerable EHR utilization financial support. Thus, government initiative towards healthcare Information Technology will drive the growth of the regional market.
