Long-term Care Software Market

The long-term care software market is expected to register a CAGR of nearly 12% during the forecast period (2019-2024).

  • The major factors attributing to the growth of the long-term care software market are the healthcare reforms and government initiatives, rise in the aging population, and Growing Burden of Chronic Diseases.
  • Government policies and acts, such as the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), improve the healthcare quality, safety, management, and efficiency, including the electronic health records (EHRs) and a private and secure electronic health information exchange. Such type of information exchange is vital in proper disease management, in order to alert the clinicians in a timely manner.
  •  In 2010, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) implemented the E-Prescriptions for Controlled Substances (EPCS) technology solution, in order to reduce errors, speed up the medication reconciliation process, track the fulfillment of prescriptions, increase the adherence to medications, etc.
  • Effectively from January 1, 2018, the US healthcare practitioners started receiving roughly USD 60.00 for remote patient monitoring (RPM), which involves accessing, reviewing, interpreting, and acting on various physiological data, for at least 30 minutes over a 30-day period.
  • RPM is a cost-effective method that reduces patient readmission and emergency department (ED) visits, in case of chronic diseases.
  • Medicare pays for the home healthcare services provided by agencies during the episode of care period (60 days), which include skilled nursing care (giving injections, tube feeding, and wound dressing), physical therapy, occupational therapy, and counseling for emotional concerns. All the aforementioned healthcare services are expected to utilize the software platform or application, for enhancing the patient’s health outcomes, which in turn, may contribute to the growth of the long-term care software market.
  • Even the factors, such as the rising geriatric population across the world, are helping the market.
  • According to the United Nations report in 2017, there were around 962 million people aged 60 or over in the world, comprising 13% of the global population. The population aged 60 or above is growing at a rate of about 3% per year.

Key Market Trends

E-prescribing is Expected to Record a Healthy CAGR in the Product Segment

Electronic prescribing is a new way for care providers to enter prescription information into a computer or mobile application and transfer to pharmacies, where it can be dispensed. As per the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), around 70% of physicians in the United States have transmitted at least one e-prescription. The rise in the trend of e-prescribing can be attributed to the implementation of Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances (EPCS) in 2010. This also helps avoid the errors in drug prescription caused by illegible handwriting.

E-prescribing helps healthcare providers to track the prescription filling, alert patients on allergies, monitor the controlled substance prescriptions, improve medication adherence, etc. The advantages of e-prescribing over the traditional methods are contributing to the growth of the long-term care software market.

North America Dominates the Market, and is Expected to do the Same in the Forecast Period

North America is expected to dominate the overall market, throughout the forecast period. This is due to the increasing geriatric population and the favorable government policies, along with the presence of widespread insurance coverage. In North America, the United States holds the largest market share. This is mainly due to the high adoption rate of new technology software services across the country. For instance, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) allowed practitioners to write prescriptions for controlled substances electronically. This allows for a reduction in prescription errors caused by illegible handwritten prescriptions.
