Global Hepatic Encephalopathy Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.
The market for managing liver disease continues to positive impact overall from COVID-19. The rise in COVID-19 prevalence has fueled the desire for precise diagnosis and treatment tools in a number of nations. Solutions for managing liver diseases have proven to be highly beneficial in this regard since they enable healthcare providers to easily combine SGLT1 and SGLT2, patient management, and care management solutions with solutions for healthcare payers, such as claim management and payment management systems. Additionally, lockdowns and restrictions brought on by the disease's quick global spread have raised the requirement for electronic data transfer and claim administration.
In particular, the pandemic – now at its two-year mark – has played a pivotal role in changing the health landscape by hindering hepatic encephalopathy for many patients, raising the specter of more severe illness for many with underlying health conditions. Such factors are contributing to a rise in mortality or some of the leading causes of death in the U.S., such as hepatitis A, B and Hepatitis C and liver failure.

*Definition: Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a reversible syndrome observed in patients with advanced liver dysfunction. This syndrome is characterized by a wide spectrum of neuropsychiatric abnormalities resulting from the accumulation of neurotoxic substances in the brain.
Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is the leading cause of mortality in patients suffering from acute liver failure and also in those patients suffering from liver cirrhosis and associated with end stage liver disease. A person suffering from hepatic encephalopathy loses the ability to metabolize ammonia, which results in the buildup of ammonia in various tissues and organs of the body. Moreover, ammonia crosses the blood–brain barrier, and thus causing neurocognitive impairment. Hepatic encephalopathy can be classified into two types: covert hepatic encephalopathy (CHE) and overt hepatic encephalopathy (OHE), out of which, overt hepatic encephalopathy is associated with high rates of mortality and poor quality of life, as compared to covert hepatic encephalopathy (CHET). The major market participants have developed novel technologies and techniques for treating liver disorders. The market will expand as a result in the coming year.
Increase in the government and non-government organizations initiatives to improve access to affordable liver related treatment option. Rise in the awareness regarding the importance of liver health among the people and favorable reimbursement are the factors likely drive the market growth. For instance, in October 2022, Bausch Health Companies Inc., and its gastroenterology business, Salix Pharmaceuticals, one of the largest specialty pharmaceutical companies announced the endorsement of the implementation of K76.82, an ICD-10 code from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for hepatic encephalopathy (HE), a complication of cirrhosis that affects the brain
