Now is a good time to be in the business of healthcare quality, according to a report that says the healthcare industry increasingly needs professionals who can use the growing amount of data to improve care and safety. Already a “flourishing market” for quality professionals, the healthcare field will continue to offer more opportunities, the report says.
The Global Healthcare Quality Management Detailed Analysis Report 2017-2022 from MarketResearchReports.biz says demand for healthcare quality management is likely to increase as a result of government mandates compelling healthcare providers to improve the quality of patient care they offer, the rising volume of unstructured data in the healthcare sector, and the demand for reducing healthcare costs and risk of medical errors.

The report differentiates between web-based and on-premise quality management.
“Of these, the demand for the former segment rose at a massive pace in the coming years. Cloud and web-based solutions provide flexibility of working even from remote areas, which is a key factor aiding growth witnessed in this segment,” according to the report.
In terms of application, the global healthcare quality management market can be bifurcated into risk management and data management, the report says. Of these, the data management segment held dominance in 2016.
“The staggering volume of disparate data generated within the healthcare sector and the subsequently rising demand for quality-based reports have enabled the segment to exhibit impressive growth over the last few years,” the report says.
Demand for quality management is seen most prominently in ambulatory care centers, hospitals, home healthcare agencies, ACOs, assisted living facilities, and nursing homes.
“Of these, the demand for healthcare quality management is expected to grow at a significantly high pace in hospitals,” the report says. “Factors such as the rising focus on patient safety and the rising willingness among patients and their families to spend on advanced healthcare are likely to fuel the demand for healthcare quality management in hospitals.”
The prevalence of stringent legislation and accreditation requirements have fueled the demand for healthcare quality management in North America, the report notes.
“In addition, factors such as the growing volume of patient data, the rising adoption of IT technologies across the healthcare sector, and regulations implemented to minimize clinical risks have supported the healthcare quality management market’s growth in North America,” the report says.
