Provided by BIS Research

With the population increasing worldwide, the number of ailing patients is also increasing. Hospitals are facing challenges to minimize medical errors and manage data more efficiently. High acuity information systems are one such solution to these challenges, as they are integrated computer based platforms comprising of both software and hardware (patient monitoring machines) which aid the healthcare providers to manage their patients efficiently and effectively. There has been an impending need for these systems in different departments of the hospital such as critical care/intensive care unit (ICU), emergency department (ED) and operation theatre (OT), as the patient volume is increasing significantly in these departments.


The patients in these critical facilities need the utmost care and monitoring and hence the use of high acuity information solutions helps in providing quality treatment. The software applications of these solutions are interfaced with hardware, that are monitoring devices, to collect, store, manage, and analyze patient data for a better clinical outcome. The monitoring systems aide with measuring and monitoring various physiological parameters to keep a tab on the patient's recovery rate. The hospitals are focusing significantly on reducing the rate of medical errors and to improve the workflow management in the high acuity settings. Governments of a number of countries are investing in the development of IT in healthcare and to reduce healthcare costs. These factors are propelling the growth in the market.
