From the last few years, the population health management market is witnessing significant growth in the adoption of health IT solutions like EHR because of rising geriatric population and increasing prevalence of chronic disease. As per the United Nations, the worldwide geriatric population is expected to increase from 962 million in 2017 to over 2.1 billion by 2050. This is expected to increase the burden of chronic diseases as well as add more pressure on healthcare spending. However, several private and government organizations have already started taking efforts to improve the healthcare outcome and reduce the financial burden by offering favorable reimbursement policies and incentive program to hospitals.
Population health management solution also help in reducing healthcare spending. Various initiatives were undertaken globally to curb healthcare spending is expected to drive the demand for population health management solutions. For instance, shifting trend from volume-based to value-based care is further boosting the adoption of population health management solutions.
Some of the prominent players in the global population health management market are Allscripts, McKesson Corporation, Cerner Corporation, Conifer Health Solutions, LLC., eClinicalWorks, McKesson Corporation, Optum Inc, Koninklijke Philips N.V., and Athenahealth, Inc.
Mergers and acquisitions and strategic collaborations are the key strategies adopted by the market players to maintain competitiveness.
In October 2015, IBM acquired Merge Healthcare—a provider of medical image processing and interoperability. Post this acquisition, Merge Healthcare became a part of IBM Watson Health’s business unit. This acquisition would accelerate IBM’s client capabilities to cross-refer and analyze medical images against the data points on the IBM Watson’s health cloud.

Asia Pacific to Witness Dynamic Growth
Geographically, Asia Pacific market is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the huge burden of geriatric population in several countries such as Japan, China, and India. The geriatric population is more prone to have chronic diseases. This will compel the government and healthcare providers to offer better care at low prices without putting financial pressure on patients. As per World Bank statistics, the geriatric population in Japan has increased from 22% in 2010 to 27% in 2017. Thus, the adoption of population health management solutions is increasing gradually to address the chronic disease burden. Gradually increasing spending on EHR or EMR in this region is expected to boost market growth. In 2018, Australia spent around USD 1.26 billion on implementing EHR and EMR.
