Global Clinical Decision Support System Industry Set to Exhibit Huge Progress in Future

The rising incidence of chronic diseases, surging geriatric population, and increasing requirement of patient monitoring services, especially in the remote regions of the developing nations, are some of the major factors responsible for the wide-scale adoption of clinical decision support systems across the world. These systems are mainly required for streamlining the clinical procedures in these countries. According to a report published by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), the share of the worldwide geriatric population is expected to increase from 11.7% of the global population in 2013 to 21.1% by the end of 2050.

Driven by the above-mentioned factors, the global clinical decision support system market size is expected to exhibit tremendous growth in the coming years. The clinical decision support systems (CDSSs) are basically computer-based information systems that are used for assisting the medical practitioners in implementing clinical guidelines at the point of care. These systems utilize patient information for providing evidence-based treatment recommendations to the medical care providers and help them in achieving improved clinical outcomes.

Across the world, North America is predicted to observe huge rise in the adoption of CDSS in healthcare facilities in the years to come. This is primarily credited to the increasing occurrence of chronic and many other lifestyle-associated diseases, soaring investments being made in the healthcare industry, rising awareness amongst the people about the innovative applications of CDSS, and the presence of a well-established healthcare infrastructure and mushrooming geriatric population in the region.

The Asia-Pacific region is predicted to register rapid growth in the utilization of CDSS in various healthcare applications in future. This is attributed to the growing geriatric population and rising prevalence of chronic diseases in the region. In addition to this, the ballooning patient demand and rising life expectancy of the people in several APAC countries are expected to further boost the information technology (IT) investments being made in the healthcare industry in the region, which will in turn, fuel huge growth in the clinical decision support system (CDSS) market in the region over the next few years.

Thus, the demand for CDSS is certain to rise across the globe in the coming years on account of the growing need for patient monitoring systems, increasing incidence of chronic diseases, and rising utilization of advanced devices in healthcare applications all over the world.
