Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
IT-enabled healthcare involves use of Clinical Information Systems (CIS), Electronic Medical Record (EMR), Nursing Information Systems (NIS), Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD), and other such software and systems.
The global IT-enabled healthcare market is estimated to account for US$ 464.73 Bn in terms of value by the end of 2027.
Global IT-enabled Healthcare Market: Drivers
Increasing prevalence of chronic disorders is expected to propel growth of the global IT-enabled healthcare market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the American Cancer Society, in 2019, there will be an estimated 1,762,450 new cancer cases diagnosed and 606,880 cancer deaths in the U.S.
Moreover, launch of IoT connected device platforms is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, in June 2020, MedShift, a medical technology company, launched the new version of IoT connected device platform, 3.0, which provides an end-to-end solution for device manufacturers, integrating their purpose-built credit card-sized computer boards, with encrypted private cellular SIM capabilities, into any medical device line up.
North America held dominant position in the global IT-enabled healthcare market in 2019, accounting for 39.0% share in terms of value, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific, respectively.

Global IT-enabled Healthcare Market: Restraints
Low adoption of internet in emerging economies is expected to hinder growth of the market. For instance, according to Pew Research Center (October 2019), Sub-Saharan Africa has a lower level of internet use than any other geographic region, ranging from a high of 59% in South Africa to a low of 25% in Tanzania.
Moreover, high cost of Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) and Radiology Information System (RIS) is also expected to limit growth of the market. For instance, conventional PACS systems can cost around US$ 5,000 to US$ 100,000.
