Driver: Increasing Adoption of Behavioral Health Software:
High healthcare costs for the treatment of behavioral health-related problems or mental illnesses form a key concern for governments. Globally, depression is a common mental disorder; more than 264 million people of all ages suffer from depression. The global cost for the treatment of mental illnesses was ~USD 2.5 trillion in 2020; this figure is projected to reach USD 6 trillion by 2030 (Source: Lancet Commission). Additionally, serious mental illnesses cost the US an estimated USD 193.2 billion in lost earnings per year (Source: National Alliance of Mental Illness). In Canada, mental health problems cost more than USD 42.4 billion (CAD 51 billion) every year (Source: Centre for Addiction and Mental Health). The need for and generation of excessive paperwork (resulting in loss of productivity among clinicians) and improper revenue cycle management by behavioral health organizations are the major factors resulting in the high cost of treatments. The need to resolve these issues has boosted attention on and the adoption of behavioral health software as a means of reducing medication errors and paperwork, enhancing productivity by ensuring quick patient data access, improving workflow efficiency, and minimizing healthcare costs. These benefits of behavioral health software have driven their adoption, especially among large hospitals and community clinics.
Opportunity: Emerging Markets
Emerging markets such as the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa are expected to offer significant growth opportunities for players operating in the behavioral health software market, especially those that are unable to meet the standards set by the Federal Government in the US. Government initiatives to establish standards, regulations, and infrastructure will encourage healthcare providers to adopt EMR and EHR technology in Australia. The Australian government has been taking several initiatives to increase the adoption of IT in healthcare to reduce errors and increase efficiency. On this front, in March 2013, the State of South Australia started developing the “careconnect.sa” program to fully integrate EHR systems statewide. The Government of Australia is also actively promoting the electronic exchange of health information as part of the National E-Health Strategy. In its 2015-16 Federal Budget, the government allocated USD 485.1 million to strengthen eHealth governance arrangements (Source: Australian Digital Health Agency). Such initiatives are responsible for increasing the implementation of EMRs and EHRs in Australia.
