Segmentation of the global medical documentation management market by application
Document imaging management
The records management market is expected to reach close to USD 134 million by 2019. The market is evolving thanks to paper-based transactions shifting to electronic mediums. However, the lack of proper standards in developing countries can act as an impediment to the growth of this market.
During the forecast period, the growing need to streamline billing systems will drive the market for billing systems.

With this, the need to track all treatment-related expenses of patients has become a key priority for the healthcare sector. Thanks to these positive trends, the billing systems segment is expected to expand significantly over the next four years.
Segmentation of the global medical documentation management market by technology
The DMS services segment focuses on updates, support, maintenance, and training expenses. The market revenue of this segment is slated to increase as more healthcare organizations start realizing the benefits of investing in updates rather than making new purchases. With investments in R&D, many new products are expected to be launched in this segment during the forecast period.
Segmentation of the global medical documentation management market by deployment model
On-premise is ideal for mid-sized enterprises that do not have the same requirements as large organizations. On-premise solutions are usually dependent on in-house IT administration and takes a longer timespan for implementation.
Many vendors have started delivering medical document solutions on the cloud to cater to the growing demand from enterprises. As the software is maintained at the vendor's data center, corporate IT departments of hospitals and care centers incur lower costs on services available on a subscription basis. It eliminates all complexities involving software installation at the premises of the user. The cloud-based segment is expected to grow rapidly until 2019.
Segmentation of the global medical documentation management market by end-users
Care centers and specialty homes
Healthcare insurance providers
Healthcare insurance providers are key end-user of DMS. Insurance providers use DMS tools for scanning, storing, and retrieving documents. Implementation of DMS helps agencies save space, time, and money. It also helps health insurers in effectively managing content and streamlining the insurance process while meeting all compliances and security regulations. This segment accounted for a market share of nearly 13% in 2014.
Geographical segmentation of the global medical documentation management market
Presently, the US represents the largest market for healthcare, worldwide. Its growth is augmented by the growing demand for in-vitro diagnostics and research activities in advanced areas of biotechnology such as proteomics and glycomics.
