Australia Electronic Health Record Market Executive Summary

Australia's Electronic Health Record market size was valued at $339 Mn in 2022 and is estimated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5% from 2022-30 and will reach $521 Mn in 2030. Australia spends a significant amount on healthcare, with healthcare expenditure as a percentage of GDP in the range of 9-11% depending on the year. According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW), in 2019-20, total health spending was $194.6 Bn, which represents 9.5% of GDP. The majority of this spending (68%) comes from government sources, with the remaining 32% coming from private sources. Australia has been a leader in digital health, with a number of initiatives and programs in place to support the use of technology in healthcare.

A patient's medical records are preserved digitally in an electronic health record. Electronic tools are used to construct, produce, and store health record (EHR). EHRs are being adopted by healthcare providers as a result of the desire for state-of-the-art medical facilities. The fundamental components of an EHR are administrative activities, computerized physician order input, lab systems, radiology systems, pharmacy systems, and clinical documentation. The electronic health record contains data on age, gender, ethnicity, health history, medications, allergies, immunisation status, lab test results, hospital discharge instructions, and billing information.

The development of software technology and the healthcare industry is a primary driver of the Australia market for electronic health records. Additionally, the inclusion of artificial intelligence (AI) in software development for electronic health records (EHRs) contributes to the market's expansion. Additionally, EHRs were crucial for managing and storing patient data during the COVID-19 pandemic emergency.

Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers

EHR can reduce the frequency of medical errors by improving the accuracy and clarity of medical records. EHRs give doctors access to more thorough patient data, empowering them to swiftly decide on the best course of treatment, enhance patient care, and reduce safety risks. It is projected that these factors will increase EHR adoption.

The electronic health record (EHR) streamlines the clinician's workflow by automating information access. The EHR can directly or indirectly support various care-related tasks like evidence-based decision support, quality monitoring, and outcomes reporting through a number of interfaces. It is hoped that these advantages would help the EHR sector grow even more.

The necessity for doctors to have quick access to patient records is another factor that is projected to drive the EHR market.

Market Restraints

The development of an EHR system faces a number of challenges. The uniformity of laboratory test data is a significant issue. Many test measurements or units, even within the same institution, have altered over the past thirty years, necessitating their calibration for comparison analysis. The right to personal privacy is an additional issue. To maintain the confidentiality of the data, de-identification must be applied to patient data. Even with the removal of personal information, a collection of data from many laboratories can be utilized to locate a patient. I think the law has to be changed to permit the extraordinary use of health records by entities other than hospitals for research and the creation of a truly national database.

Electronic Health Records Market Segmentation

By Product (Revenue, USD Billion):

Web-based and cloud-based software is more affordable since it saves on additional costs like license fees, regular upgrades, and device upkeep. Additionally, it reduces the need for IT workers because SaaS providers help with software installation, configuration, testing, operation, and upgrades. The cost-effectiveness of cloud-based EHR systems in small healthcare organizations will therefore fuel developments as well as the expansion of the category. MHealth services

  • Web/Cloud-based EHR software
  • On-premise EHR software

By Application Type (Revenue, USD Billion):

Large amounts of patient health data may be stored and processed by EHRs, which aids doctors in automating both financial and operational operations with rapid and simple access. Therefore, integrated EHR and practice management software navigates all tasks, making it easier for front-line healthcare providers to do their jobs, and will therefore drive the segment's revenue during the anticipated time period.
