Healthcare Biometrics (HB) Market to Worth USD 5.6 Bn. by 2022 :

Pune, India, October, 2018 /press release/- Market Research Future Published a Half-Cooked Research Report on  Healthcare Biometrics  Market Research Report.

Biometrics after garnering huge prominence in banking, insurance, and public security sector, are all set to revalorize healthcare sector. Healthcare (HC) officials can leverage some unique approaches using the biometrics techniques such as facial recognition solutions, fingerprint scanners, palm vein readers, and iris scanners among others, in combination with their smartphones.

Implementing these emerging technologies makes it easier for hospitals, practices, payers and other healthcare organizations to recognize individual patients and match an individual's medical data which holds considerable promise. As a result, healthcare biometrics (HB) market is growing pervasively and rapidly.

Recognizing the potential this market holds to grow further, Market Research Future (MRFR) in its recently published study report asserts that the global healthcare biometrics market is expected to evaluate at USD 5.6 BN by 2022, registering a whopping CAGR of 22.3% during the forecast period (2016 – 2022). 

Factors such as spreading awareness about HB technologies and their increasing applications across the healthcare sector along with the proliferating HC insurance market is driving the market of biometrics in healthcare.

Additional factors substantiating the market growth include the growing population, and extensive penetration of healthcare facilities, worldwide. Rapidly improving economic conditions are positively impacting the market growth, availing quality care and insurance facilities, across the globe.

Although biometric technologies have long held promise leveraging, identification of patients and employees, these have been slow to catch on in healthcare. Surely, many hospitals and clinics have implemented some technologies; however, biometrics is not yet entirely in the mainstream of healthcare practices. These factors might obstruct the market growth. 

Patient identification and matching is an ongoing healthcare problem worldwide, and, especially in developed regions where the law prohibits the standard identifier, it is made even more complicated, and interoperability and record matching issues are still intimidating HC officials to varying extents. However, with time and seminal efforts put in by healthcare CISOs and biometrics technology vendors, HB is soon expected to get in the mainstream.
