Frost & Sullivan: Government Initiatives Drive Use of Electronic Medical and Health Records in Asia-Pacific
Date:4/23/2013

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Electronic medical record (EMR) and electronic health record (EHR) systems are becoming increasingly popular in Asia-Pacific as the region's healthcare industry moves towards digitization. Governments, non-profit entities and the private sector are aggressively investing in EMR and EHR projects at both regional and local levels to achieve seamless information exchange that will contribute towards cost savings as well as improvements in clinical outcomes.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.connectedhealth.frost.com), EMR and EHR Market in APAC, finds that the market earned revenues worth US$1.2 billion in 2012 and estimates this to reach US$2.20 billion in 2018.

EMR and EHR systems reduce the costs of storing, transmitting and managing volumes of medical and health data, decrease end users' burden of multiple tests and procedures, improve healthcare delivery, and reduce medical errors. Healthcare providers' recognition of these benefits accelerates the adoption of EMR and EHR solutions.

"Government initiatives to establish standards, regulations and infrastructure further encourage healthcare providers to adopt EMR and EHR technology," said Frost & Sullivan Healthcare Research Analyst Natasha Gulati . "Medical professionals hope to improve operational efficiency; medical resource utilization; patient data access in rural areas and aged care programs through EMR systems."

However, challenges around interoperability and the lack of technical skills among medical professionals hinder market development. Robust EMR or EHR equipment are expensive, curbing investments from APAC healthcare providers who are already reeling under the pressures of declining margins. Their inability to extend their operational budgets to include sophisticated solutions restricts revenue inflow.

Governments looking to fund the implementation of these solutions must balance their grants between new investments as well as maintenance and upgrades. In addition to funding, governments are collaborating with software and infrastructure companies to build EHR networks in public hospitals.

"Healthcare groups and solution vendors are investing in training programs to build a skilled medical workforce that can leverage sophisticated technologies," noted Gulati. "Several universities have developed curricula on health IT management, health informatics and public health information management to facilitate superior healthcare delivery."

Effective EMR and EHR can improve the quality of care, relieve margin pressures and drive revenue growth.
