The global population health management market size was valued at USD 21.40 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 91.43 billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 19.9% during the forecast period.

Population health management refers to a program where the patient’s data is aggregated across various health information technology resources. This enables the analysis of these aggregated data into a single and actionable patient record, which allows healthcare professionals to improve the clinical and financial outcomes of their patients. Most of the population healthcare management programs utilize a business intelligence tool for the aggregation of data, which allows the healthcare professionals to build a precise and accurate clinical picture of every individual patient.


Shift from Fee-For-Service (FFS) to a Value-Based Payment (VBP) Model in Healthcare to Accelerate the Market

The shift from fee-for-service (FFS) to a value-based payment (VBP) in healthcare has been critical for the greater adoption of population health management. This is primarily because businesses who practice effective aggregation of data and the subsequent, analysis of the population heath data are able to better practice coordination and management of care. Doing so allows these healthcare businesses and institution generate higher revenue growth, leading to the growth of the global market. The conventional fee-for-service (FFS) reimbursement is being replaced by value-based payment (VBP). In this approach the clinicians consider the overall quality of care provided including clinical outcomes and accordingly ask for reimbursement from insurance companies. Value-based care models follow a holistic approach to care, which requires coordination and communication between clinicians across diverse specialties that population health management seamlessly allows. This is projected to further propel the population health management market growth during the forecast period.

This software and services allow the healthcare institutions deliver targeted care to their patients, which also leads their organizations realize greater cost savings. A number of market players are also focusing their efforts on home healthcare, which also greatly helps physicians make even better clinical decisions.

Due to the technological advancements in healthcare IT, population health management programs have become more accurate and effective. This has led to their increased adoption for a wide range of healthcare needs, including the aggregation of data from various sources. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1 in 6 adults in the United States suffer from a chronic disease, with 1 in 4 individuals having multiple chronic diseases. This highlights the urgent need for effective population health management programs to improve healthcare outcomes for patients. Increased technological advancements in electronic health records (EHR), analytics, blockchain technology and improved population education are also further contributing in the increase of the market size. The above factors combined with the population health management market trends such as changes in the reimbursement model is further projected to fuel the adoption and boost the market growth. 


Concerns Associated with Cyber Security and Weaker Healthcare Infrastructure in Emerging Countries to Limit the Adoption of PHM

One of the major factors restraining the growth of the population health management market is concerns associated with cyber security. Data can be susceptible to security breaches and numerous confidential data contained in population health management programs can be compromised. Another critical limiting factor is the lack of adequate healthcare infrastructure in the developing regions which further limits the adoption of these programs, are some of the major factors restraining the PHM market growth.
