The electronic health record (EHR) market in Europe is expected to grow from US$ 2,187.4 million in 2021 to US$ 3,167.6 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2021 to 2028. A medical error is a nightmare scenario that no physician or medical practice wants to face. While most healthcare professionals and many consumers/clients/patients realize that doctors are human beings and sometimes make mistakes, most take measures to ensure accuracy in all aspects of a patient care scenario. Yet, unfortunately, thousands of people do experience some form of medical errors and even preventable deaths on an annual basis. Today's EHR systems support automated artificial intelligence, sometimes sifting through massive patient care files. For example, not long ago, a patient with a chronic condition might have a paper record composed of hundreds of pages. Today, an EHR system can quickly sift through data to analyze current and past prescriptions, laboratory tests, treatment plans, diagnoses, medical procedures, and even foods that a patient should stay away from when taking certain medications before or following medical treatment or procedure. These statistics emphasize that most such medical errors are not implied to be caused by the lack of concern, inattentiveness, or outright misconduct on the part of physicians, but rather the often-confusing lack of communication and access to complete medical records and histories. The development of electronic health record/electronic medical record technologies can serve to reduce medical errors through more coordinated care enhanced by data sharing and immediate accessibility by any member of a patient's health care team.
The market for electronic health record (EHR) market is segmented into installation type, type, and end user. Based on installation type, the electronic health record (EHR) market is segmented cloud-based and on-premise. In 2020, cloud-based segment accounted for the largest share of the market. Cloud-based solutions are cost-effective as cloud computing reduces the cost of managing and maintaining your IT systems. Cloud-based EHR offers flexibility and allows the user to access the data from any place. Also, developments by market players in this segment are likely to enhance the growth of the segment. For instance, in July 2020, Cerner launched a cloud-based EHR platform, CommunityWorks Foundations, which aims at reducing the costs of traditional EHR systems in rural and Critical Access Hospitals.
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the European region has slightly affected the healthcare industry. The healthcare IT sector also experienced negative effects during the first COVID-19 wave. Supply chains were disrupted, slowed down and further stopped the production. Some of the healthcare IT companies operating in EHR market have witnessed revenue loss. For instance, Finland based TietoEVRY, in Quarter 4, 2020 witnessed a decline in overall revenues by 8.5% (versus Quarter 42019) due to the impact of COVID-19. The European countries such as Italy and Spain were the first to report drastically increasing numbers of COVID-positive patients. Perhaps other European countries such as the UK, France, and Germany have also significantly started reporting COVID positive patients. In this region, the healthcare industry is also making shifts to adopt new, safer hospital practices in response to Covid-19. Since physical contact and proximity present such risks, hospitals are turning to various digital tools to meet their care priorities, such as risk reduction and better resource utilization. For instance, companies like Germany's Klara are working to put these digital tools at the center of doctor-patient communication across Europe. Therefore, it expected that the market for the electronic health record (EHR) would witness growth during the forecast period.
