A maturing EHR market means fewer greenfield opportunities for HITS vendors, driving their ongoing shift to EHR add-ons in 2015


According to Technology Business Research Inc.’s (TBR) 4Q14 Healthcare IT Services Benchmark, healthcare IT services (HITS) global market growth continued to decelerate throughout 2014 as the U.S. electronic health records (EHR) space matures and approaches market saturation. Even as the pace of HITS growth has slowed, expansion has remained at a rate surpassing that of the global IT services market. As detailed in TBR’s 4Q14 IT Services Vendor Benchmark, the global IT services market realized 1.3% trailing 12-month (TTM) year-to-year growth in 4Q14, buoyed by the HITS subsegment, which grew 5.4% year-to-year on a trailing 12-month basis during the same period.
