Medical Information Technology Including PACS, Electronic Medical
Records, AIMS to See Double-Digit Growth
VANCOUVER, May 24, 2011 /CNW/ - According to a new report by iData
Research (www.idataresearch.net), the leading global authority in medical device market research, the
U.S. anesthesia, respiratory and sleep-management device market will
reach approximately $4 billion by 2017, with strong growth being driven
by anesthesia information management system (AIMS) sales. This report
is accompanied by two companion reports, "Electronic Medical Records"
and "Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS)", which
forecast rapid adoption of medical information technology due to
approaching deadlines set out by the U.S. government's Healthcare
Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.
"The market for anesthesia information management systems will increase
by over 50% in 2012 as hospitals automate their anesthesia departments
ahead of the 2015 deadline outlined in U.S. legislation," says Dr.
Kamran Zamanian, CEO of iData. "AIMS automates data collection in the
anesthesia department, streamlining work-flow, improving electronic
records and decreasing malpractice claims. Picis, GE Healthcare,
Draeger, IMDsoft, Merge and Philips are battling for market share in
this segment, which will almost triple in value by 2017."
iData's anesthesia report also states that companies such as Mindray,
Maquet and Penlon are entering the U.S. anesthesia delivery unit (ADU)
market forcing established market leaders to release low-cost
low-acuity models to compete. As a result of these falling prices,
unit-sales are expected to increase through 2017.
In addition, iData's Electronic Medical Record (EMR) report states that
EMR sales will grow dramatically, surpassing $7.4 billion in sales and
annual support revenue. Dramatic investment in this market is an effort
by healthcare providers to comply with the HITECH legislation by 2013
to avoid paying penalties. Allscripts-Misys, eClincalWorks, Epic
Systems, McKesson and NextGen are competing for dominance in this
iData's global report series on "The Markets for Anesthesia, Respiratory
and Sleep-Management Devices 2011" includes the latest data,
market-analyses and competitor profiles for over 65 segments.
