Global Radiology Information System Market: Restraints  

Lack of proper healthcare infrastructure and low healthcare expenditure in emerging economies is expected to limit growth of the market. For instance, according to World Bank, health expenditure per capita in Brazil declined from US$ 1,288 in 2011 to US$ 1,015 in 2016.

Moreover, lack of trained professionals in emerging economies is also expected to limit growth of the market.

Global Radiology Information System Market: Opportunities   

Integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in RIS is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the market. Integration of AI in RIS can result in seamless workflow, improved patient care, and consistent radiologist support. It also can aid in delivering a customized ecosystem experience to the radiologists and offer faster, more accurate, and more consistent diagnosis.

Moreover, government initiatives to boost adoption of RIS is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, in February 2020, KareXpert Technologies, a digital healthcare platform provider, implemented RIS/PACS, Telemedicine, HIMS, EMR/EHR, and other services in the state of Uttrakhand, India, under a 5-year MoU with Nainital district administration.
