According to the updated factsheet of 2017 published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it was estimated that ~86.9% of the office-based physicians used EMR/EHR systems.

Market Restraints

  • Data security concerns, increasing healthcare fraud and cyber-attacked hampers the market growth

  • The high cost of implementing EMR & EHR followed by the need for training restrains the market growth


By Solutions

  • On-Premise: It is the largest segment by solution. On-premise models use the organization’s computing possessions and require only a license from the vendor. This solution is installed and operated in the organization.

  • Cloud: Cloud-based software is installed and managed through a vendor’s cloud computing infrastructure and accessed by users through the internet.

  • Hybrid Data Storage: The hybrid data storage comprises both it can be operated using vendors' infrastructure or organization’s computing possessions.

By Application

  • Clinical Analysis: It is the largest segment by application. This holds the largest market share owing to the increasing demand for software and solutions to maintains and analyze healthcare data such as patient information, medication related to the patient, patient history, and other information of providing better care and treatment to the patient.

  • Financial Analysis: It is the fastest-growing segment by application. The hospitals and clinics use this data storage software for billing, to understand the revenue cycle, and to store information about the patient insurance process.

  • Operational Analysis: In operational analysis, the data storage is used in the administrating process. The information about patient appointments, doctor visits, and other events.

By Architecture

  • Object Storage: It is the largest segment by architecture. Object storage can accommodate unstructured data with relative ease. This makes it a perfect fit for the big data needs of organizations in finance, healthcare, and beyond.

  • File Storage: It is an old method to store data using simple approach. Many companies demand centralized and easy to use and accessible way to store files. It is preferred by small businesses as it is cost-effective compared to other data storage approaches.

  • Block Storage: Is a conventional storage system that stores the data in singular blocks. It has a fix storage capacity. It is the most commonly used storage type.

By Type

  • Flash & Solid-State Storage: It is estimated to be the largest segment by type. It is expected to grow at the fastest pace owing to the high capacity of flash and solid-state compared to magnetic disks. In addition, the price of flash drives and solid-state drives has declined significantly, leading to increased end-user adoption.

  • Magnetic Storage: It is a form of non-volatile memory stored in a magnetic material. The magnetic storage is sub-segmented into magnetic disks and magnetic tapes.

By Storage System

  • Storage Area Network: It is the largest segment by the storage system. The storage area network is a bunch of disks that connect to a bunch of servers over fiber optics.

  • Direct-Attached Storage: It is directly connected to the computer system. These systems are ideal for small businesses to share local data.

  • Network-Attached Storage: It is a single server that shares its own storage over the network. It operates on data file.

By End User

  • Hospitals and Clinics: Holds the largest market share by end users. The key factors driving the market growth are increasing demand for advance software for data storage, significant demand for patient medical records for drug discovery.

  • Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology Companies, CROS, and CMOS: It is the fastest-growing segment. There is an increase in demand for healthcare storage solutions in healthcare companies to store research and development data, product information and operate data.

  • Others: Covers the diagnostic & clinical laboratory centers.
