The global electronic health records (EHR) market was valued at USD 30.8 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2023 to 2032. The market is expected to reach USD 47.8 billion by 2032. The developments in software technology and the healthcare industry are the main factors propelling the growth of the global electronic health records market. Furthermore, the industry is expanding due to the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the software development of EHRs.

Market Introduction:

An electronic representation of a patient's medical records is called an electronic health record. The health record is created, assembled, and stored electronically using EHR. The need for modern healthcare facilities is driving the adoption of EHRs by healthcare practitioners. Administrative tasks, computerised physician order input, lab, radiography, pharmacy, and clinical recording systems are among the essential elements of an EHR. Age, gender, ethnicity, medical history, prescription drugs, allergies, immunisation history, test findings, directions for hospital release, and billing data are all included in the electronic health record (EHR). Government programmes to promote the use of IT in healthcare are the main factors driving this market. In Australia, for example, the national digital health record platform is called My Health Record. Unless they have said otherwise, all Australian citizens have a "My Health Record." According to the organisation, all healthcare practitioners in the nation will have access to and be able to contribute to the platform's healthcare information by the end of 2022. Furthermore, the use of technologically sophisticated healthcare services is anticipated to propel the growth of the electronic health record (EHR) market.

Recent Development

In November 2022, To enhance the patient experience, CareArc, a federally qualified health centre (FQHC) in Kansas, started implementing Epic EHR through a collaboration with Health Choice Network (HCN).

In November 2022, NeuTrace was added to Anumana. The acquisition enhances Anumana's position as a global provider of AI-powered medical software development for cardiac electrophysiology. The integration of a patient's complete electronic medical record (EMR) with corresponding cardiac electrograms (EGM) from inside the heart and electrocardiograms (ECG) recorded from the body's surface is a joint development. 

In July 2023, NextGen Healthcare and the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) expanded their relationship. Through this partnership, the cloud-based EHR and practise management system called "NextGen Office" is the only one that uses blueprints created specifically with APMA. These podiatry blueprints, including diabetes, dermatitis, infections, and traumas, cover numerous conditions.

In June 2023, The four-year cooperation between CPSI and the MidCoast Health System was extended with the installation of CPSI's EHR, accounts receivable services, and IT-managed services at the Texas critical access hospital, the Crockett Medical Centre. In recent years, El Campo Memorial Hospital and Palacios Community Medical Centre are the only MidCoast Health System institutions that have effectively implemented CPSI healthcare solutions.

Market Dynamics:


Increasing adoption rate of EHR solutions- One of the key drivers of the market expansion is the growing global usage of EHR solutions. This is mostly happening due to the government's increasing efforts to put policies in place that lessen the administrative and legal costs associated with using electronic medical records by healthcare providers. For instance, the Cures Act was introduced on December 13, 2016, to improve the development of medical products and foster technological developments in the field. The Cures Act's adoption helped the players in the healthcare IT sector create strategies and recommendations meant to alleviate the main drawbacks of using electronic health records. It is accomplished by lowering the documentation needed and enhancing the Medicare program's regulatory flexibility. Therefore, during the forecast period, these initiatives will significantly boost the growth of the electronic health records market.


High cost of implementation and maintenance- A few things prevent more people from adopting EHRs, even if their use in administrative and clinical settings is growing. The high cost of EHR deployment and maintenance is one of the main issues impeding the market's growth. Because electronic health records are expensive, several emerging economies need help adopting them. Another significant factor limiting market expansion is the need for more support for healthcare IT in many emerging nations.


Increasing application of EHR in healthcare- Several nations have shown an increasing interest in adopting EHRs in recent years. The main cause is the rising need for more robust health information technology (HIT) to provide better treatment at more affordable prices. EMR is regarded as a crucial component of a successful health information system. Throughout the forecast period, the market will increase significantly due to the increasing use of EHR in clinical applications related to health information and data, order input and assistance, results management, and decision support.

Regional segmentation analysis:

The regions analyzed for the market include North America, Europe, South America, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa. North America emerged as the largest global electronic health records (EHR) market, with a 36.7% market revenue share in 2022.

The advanced adoption of information technology in North American countries has resulted in a flexible and well-equipped healthcare IT business. For example, the Orléans Health Hub brought together six community-based service providers and three hospitals in May 2022 to improve care coordination in a bilingual, highly accessible system that reflected the local community. The Hub combines several specialised and community healthcare services under one roof to provide a seamless, integrated patient experience. The adoption of cooperative strategies by Canadian organisations could be a factor in the rise in the number of individuals obtaining health information via the Internet, hence driving the expansion of the market under investigation within the nation.

Product Segment Analysis

The product segment is divided into web-based EHR and client-server-based EHR. The web-based EHR segment dominated the market, with a market share of around 59% in 2022. The popularity of web-based EHRs among smaller-scale healthcare providers, such as physicians, is responsible for their substantial market share. This is because web-based EHRs can be installed without internal servers and provide significant adjustments and enhancements based on the needs.

Type Segment Analysis

The type segment is divided into ambulatory, post-acute, and acute. The acute segment dominated the market, with a market share of around 41% in 2022. The government's efforts to encourage small-scale facilities to use electronic health records are responsible for the growth of the acute EHR segment. For example, the Medicare incentive payment system is available to acute care hospitals in the United States that are covered by the Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS).

End-User Segment Analysis

The end-user segment is divided into ambulatory use and hospital use. The hospital use segment dominated the market, with a share of around 55% in 2022. The substantial volume of medical data produced in hospitals is the reason for the segment's growth. Additionally, hospitals incur lower installation costs for electronic health records than ambulatory care facilities, further contributing to the market's expansion.
