Ambulatory EHR Market Worth $6.74 Billion by 2028

According to a new market research report, “Ambulatory EHR Market by Delivery Mode (Cloud-based, On-premise), Type, Practice Size (Large, Small-to-medium, Solo), Application (Patient Portals, Practice Management, CDS, Computerized Physician Order Entry, PHM), and End User – Global Forecast to 2028,” published by Meticulous Research®, the ambulatory EHR market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2021 to 2028 to reach $6.74 billion by 2028.

An ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) is a software solution designed for use in outpatient care facilities. Ambulatory EHRs help physicians easily track a patient’s medical history and treatment, which helps them better diagnose and effectively treat chronic illnesses. Patients’ full medical histories, which are preserved in an electronic archive, can be accessed by medical professionals. These reports include all records of operations or treatments that do not require hospitalization. Physicians can monitor a patient’s medical history and provide long-term care more easily using ambulatory EHR systems. Physicians use this software to gather detailed, relevant information about every patient, creating comprehensive databases of their personal health records. These extensive databases help doctors gain a better understanding of patients’ health, simplifying diagnosis.

The growth of the overall ambulatory EHR market is mainly attributed to the rising government support for EHR adoption, patients’ growing preference for ambulatory treatment over in-patient care, and a growing need to reduce operating costs in the healthcare sector. The integration of AI and machine learning and the changing scenario in emerging economies are expected to offer significant growth opportunities for the players operating in this market. However, data security concerns, high deployment costs, and heavy infrastructure investment requirements in low-income countries are expected to hinder the growth of this market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Ambulatory EHR Market

Governments of various countries had proposed modifying policies to alleviate the pressure on overburdened hospitals. For instance, in March 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) provided guidance allowing ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) to partner with local healthcare systems to provide hospital services. Elective and non-essential procedures were also suspended at the peak of the pandemic. Ambulatory surgical centers were, however, granted permission to perform outpatient procedures. Furthermore, the incorporation of various healthcare IT solutions with ambulatory EHR solutions allowed physicians to gain a better understanding of their patients’ health, leading to more accurate diagnoses. In 2020, Oracle Corporation (U.S.) developed a National Electronic Health Records (EHR) Database and a suite of Public Health Management Applications to help U.S. public health departments and healthcare providers capture and interpret data related to COVID-19. Thus, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the increased burden on healthcare providers, drove the demand for EHR solutions, leading to the market’s growth.

In Europe, hospitals were overburdened during the COVID-19 pandemic, and ambulatory care facilities helped alleviate this burden. In Germany, the majority of COVID-19 patients were treated in ambulatory settings during the initial phase of the pandemic. Also, in the Seine-Saint-Denis region of France, 20 ambulatory healthcare facilities were created to improve patient access.

In Latin America, the need to share health data increased significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic, thus increasing the significance of electronic health records. According to an article published in Front Public Health, several countries in South America developed shareable EHR models to enable the seamless exchange of EHR between healthcare providers and administrative entities, allowing concerned authorities to share important aspects of the outbreak, compare symptoms across different regions & healthcare facilities, and understand the overall scenario.

However, the implementation of new EHR systems was negatively impacted due to lockdown restrictions & social distancing protocols, and the diversion of healthcare budgets toward combating the COVID-19 pandemic. Travel restrictions and social distancing protocols were major challenges for sales teams and on-site implementation teams. Government measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 delayed the marketing, sale, and implementation of ambulatory EHR solutions and also affected investments in healthcare IT solutions, negatively impacting the ambulatory EHR market.

Ambulatory EHR Market Overview

The overall ambulatory EHR market is segmented by deployment mode, type, practice size, application, end user, and geography.

Based on deployment mode, the ambulatory EHR market is segmented into the cloud/web-based ambulatory EHR and on-premise ambulatory EHR segments. In 2021, the cloud/web-based ambulatory EHR segment accounted for the larger share of the overall ambulatory EHR market.
