The healthcare industry is one of the largest and fast growing industries in the world, and it has a direct effect on the quality of life of patients. The term healthcare refers to diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease or illness, and other physical and mental impairments in humans and animals. The healthcare industry provides products and services to treat patients with curative, preventive, rehabilitative or palliative care.
The Americas was the largest region in the healthcare market in 2016, accounting for 48% market share. Europe was the second largest region accounting for 24% market share. Asia was the third largest region accounting for 22% market share.
Digitalization of information related to patients including their medical history, diagnoses, medications, treatment plans, immunization dates, allergies, radiology images, and laboratory and test results is being made possible with Electronic Health Records (EHRs). EHRs increase patient participation, and improve diagnostic and treatment outcomes.
