Global Healthcare Prescriptive Analytics Market Growth, Trends & Forecast (2017 - 2022)

The global healthcare prescriptive analytics market is estimated to be USD XX billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD XX billion by 2021, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period from 2016 to 2021.

Prescriptive analytics is the final stage as well as the future of healthcare analytics. It goes beyond predicting future outcomes to suggest alternative options at hand and then demonstrates the implication of each option to make the decision-making process more rational, streamlined, and optimized.

Global Healthcare Prescriptive Analytics Market-Market Dynamics

To predict the future, we need data from the past as well as the present and the present never stops generating data, and analyzing the data being generated at the same time makes this process complex and machine-intensive. Adding more complexity to it is the nature of data, which is not the traditional data what we are used to handling but includes audio, videos, and images of different sizes and quality. Hence, predicting the future and then suggesting alternative options along with the implication of each option requires advanced technology, computing system, and better techniques.


Some of the drivers of this market are:

Recent advancements in technology

Integration of big data in healthcare

Need to curtail healthcare cost

Need to increase efficiency


The technology has certain constraints to overcome. These include:

High cost of initial investments

Lack of properly trained IT professionals in healthcare

Healthcare providers?? reluctance to share data with the third party (analytics firm)

Data integrity and safety concerns


The technology has several opportunities as well. These include:

Introduction and implementation of Electronic Health Records (EHR)

Rising investments in venture capital funds

Implementation of trends in the medical-IT field, such as precision medicines, EHR, analytics-driven personalized medicines, clinical DSS, health and disease management, and so on.

The global healthcare prescriptive analytics market is segmented on the basis of application (clinical data analytics, financial data analytics, administrative data analytics, and research data analytics), component (software, hardware, and services), deployment (on-premise model and cloud-based model), end-user (private organization (hospitals, clinics, physicians), government organization and research institutions), and geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa and Latin America).

Currently, the descriptive analytics segment accounts for the largest market share of 62% in the global healthcare technology but its share is expected to decrease and predictive analytics is expected to gain some ground in the near future. In the long run, prescriptive analytics is going to gain ground and is expected to see rapid growth. By application, the clinical analytics segment is forecasted to have the highest growth rate. Although the market growth of the cloud-based services segment is increasing substantially, the on-premise delivery system segment still accounts for the largest share due to its multi-vendor framework. This kind of architecture usually ensures the safety of data and transactions from attacks.

The primary stakeholders of this technology are healthcare IT firms, healthcare analytics vendors, care organizations, health insurance providers, healthcare payers, healthcare providers, research firms, consultants, ambulatory services, and venture capitalists.

Some of the key players in the market are:

Allscripts Healthcare Solutions Inc.



McKesson corporation

Medeanalytics, Inc.

Optum, Inc.
