An electronic health record, or EHR, is a systemized collection of a patient's health data stored in a digital format. The health information thus stored is much easier to search, share, access and analyze. Health records are shared through network connected information systems across different health care settings so that different doctors can give their expert opinion. EHR includes a series of data, namely demographics, allergies, medical history, immunization status, medication, lab test results, age, weight and billing status. An EHR records accurate data and eliminates the need to track down previous medical history or papers, reducing tedious paperwork, data replication, and rework. Moreover, EHR is highly effective in extracting mass medical data for population studies. These significant advantages of EHR systems have led to drastic growth of the global electronic health records market.
While in the past, the use of EHR systems has been limited to medium-sized and large hospitals, it is expected that the use of these systems will increase significantly in the period from 2015 to 2023, fueling the global electronic health records market. The several advantages of using EHR systems, coupled with the financial incentives offered by the governments of various countries, are the major drivers for the EHR market worldwide. The global electronic health records market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2015 to 2023, and could reach US$30.28 bn by the year 2023.
