2022-2028 is the forecast period in the market report
Clinical alarm management systems are prepared to alert healthcare professionals to potential patient problems. These alarms must be accurate, intuitive, and provide alerts that are easily interpreted by clinicians and followed appropriately. The growing demand for healthcare and the increasing patient population have led to an increasing frequency of patient alarms, irrespective of their priority. This has resulted in alarm fatigue (sensory overload when doctors are exposed to too many alarms). Clinical alerts have the potential to reduce costs and facilitate better patient management. An increased prevalence of chronic diseases and a rise in geriatric population growth are expected to be major contributors to market growth over the projected time period. Besides, the increase in healthcare spending among the developing nations is also anticipated to support the growth of the market and this factor is also anticipated to provide ample new growth opportunities for the market over the upcoming years.
The growing cases of alarm fatigue and the need for cost containment are the factors that should drive the growth of the market. Furthermore, long hospital stays, coupled with the increasing prevalence of various chronic diseases and technological advances in the area of clinical alarm management, are factors that are expected to drive market growth. The number of clinical alarms resulting in alarm fatigue has increased in recent years, mainly due to the growing number of alarm-based devices, the growing number of patients connected to different devices, and the lack of standardization between devices. Alarm fatigue, due to the high frequency of alarms, can desensitize healthcare professionals, which in turn can cause alarms to be ignored or disabled. This can result in potentially critical alerts being ignored or avoided, with serious consequences and future strains on hospital resources. In addition to causing frustration and stress for healthcare professionals, inaccurate and annoying alarms can prevent patients from rest and also affect healing. The ECRI Institute has identified alarm risks as the second highest risk to patient safety in its Top 10 Technological Health Risks for 2017. According to the ECRI Institute, 216 reports of alarm-related deaths have been reported by the FDA between 2005 and 2010. This is expected to stimulate the demand for effective clinical alarm management services.
Electronic medical records typically contain complex, confidential and often unstructured patient data. Integrating this information into the healthcare delivery process is a challenge that must be overcome in order to seize opportunities to improve patient care. Although electronic health records have been in use for many years, the market has grown due to government initiatives in various countries aimed at improving patient safety. The next phase of the development process in electronic health records would likely use clinics, area-of-care, and patient contextual information to refine functionality and improve the relevance of referral content and alerts provided to the patient at the point-of-care. In particular, if electronic health records can leverage greater patient context from medical records stored in the patient profile, this information can impact clinician alerts in a way that makes them less bulky and more relevant. Therefore, hospitals will increasingly focus on expanding their capabilities by integrating various hospital systems with electronic health records. This, in turn, is expected to provide potential growth opportunities for market players in the coming years.
Lack of interoperability is a major barrier to the effective implementation of clinical alarm management solutions and services. Interoperability between electronic systems is a key requirement for data integration and analytics efforts. Without proper data sharing and analysis, clinical alarm management cannot be effective. According to the National Electronic Health Records Survey conducted from 2015 to 2017, only about 10% of physicians were able to send, receive, and integrate health records with their respective EHR systems. While many hospitals can use their current EHRs for certain information exchange activities that promote interoperability (e.g., find, send, or receive information), only 23% of hospitals are able to use all four information exchange activities (search, send, receive and use). This is expected to restrain the growth of the market over the estimated time period.
Currently, many traditional healthcare providers are hesitant to adopt clinical alarm management solutions, primarily due to a lack of IT skills. Some consider the noise and chaos caused by alarms to be normal, therefore, the use of these solutions is a time-consuming task with little or no clinical benefit. The adoption rate of these solutions can potentially be improved by increasing awareness and providing feedback or incentives to nurses and caregivers to recommend the use of clinical alert management. Also, the lack of skilled work force in low-income nations is expected to be a challenge for the market’s growth over the forecast period.
