Homecare Information systems Market Opportunities, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2002 to 2007

 

 

 

Homecare information system software is targeted to non-acute health care distributors. This market has been highly fragmented. Products are differentiated in the market based upon the granularity of the offerings and the ability to meet the specific needs of the homecare providers.

Consolidation is occurring. The homecare market is changing. New services needed in the home include intravenous (IV) therapy, pain control, and basic needs services delivery.

Delivery of these services depends on automation of the reimbursement process. The ability of the existing homecare dealer network to deliver advanced services in the home is limited in part by an inability to bill for those services. New systems fulfill that need.

Worldwide homecare information systems markets at $1.2 billion in 2001 are expected to reach $2.6 billion by 2010. U.S. homecare information systems markets are expected to grow at 17% per year in 2003, with the growth rate accelerating to 27% per year by 2007. Global markets will be $2.6 billion by 2010. Market forces for growth relate to the efficiency and efficacy of homecare services delivery.
