Impact of covid-19 on the global healthcare BPO market:

The pandemic caused heavy losses for many markets resulting in an economic crisis worldwide. In addition, the closure of all production and delivery chains and restricted access to goods and services caused major downfalls for businesses. Furthermore, the pandemic severely impacted the healthcare industry as the rapid influx of covid patients resulted in a shortage of healthcare professionals and shared resources. As a result, all the attention was shifted toward the covid patients while activities for the other branches of medicine were postponed. However, the BPO servicing industry finds ways to stay active during the pandemic while keeping employee safety in mind. Adopting specific strategies like working from home and using I.T. services to deliver patient care and communication worldwide led to a positive impact of the pandemic on the market. Therefore, the pandemic did not cause any significant harm to the industry. 


An increasing number of people seeking insurance, the pressure to cut healthcare delivery costs, consolidation of the healthcare system, pharmaceutical companies facing patent cliffs, and the mandatory implementation of ICD-10 codes are the major factors fuelling the global healthcare BPO market.

With the ever-growing demand for healthcare, the need for outsourcing the services is expected to provide niche opportunities for I.T. companies to poach upon.

Additionally, increasing incidences of cardiovascular diseases; for example, according to WHO stats, Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of death globally, taking an estimated 17.9 million lives each year, and emergency help services are significant factors driving the demand for the healthcare business process outsourcing (BPO) market. Furthermore, rising awareness of treatment procedures and services hospitals provide fuels the market's need. Besides, the Healthcare BPO Market is accelerated by growing prevalence to increase the performance and efficiency of hospital operational systems.

Furthermore, globally, the rising demand to minimize social-economic risks is likely to outshine the need for the healthcare BPO market. Increasing support from the government through investments and providing better quality treatment procedures is to surge growth opportunities for the healthcare BPO market. Furthermore, the availability of skilled operators in customer care services significantly influences the demand for the global healthcare BPO market. Additionally, during the pandemic, when emergency communication was severely required, BPOs were far-reaching agencies aiding support worldwide. 

With the rising trend of virtual healthcare with the rapid advancement in healthcare software and I.T. sectors, along with advanced remote care facilities available to patients, there is an increasing need for 24/7 assistant services. In addition, the rising adoption of the Internet of things (IoT) and Ai advancements, especially in the post covid era, are encouraging market advancement. Furthermore, increasing cloud-based systems and E-commerce websites built for better patient care are promoting the development of the industry. Additionally, rising investments from key market players in global sales and extension of business are helping the need for BPOs. 


The concerns about losing control over the outsourced process, doubts regarding service/product quality, and the threat to data security are factors limiting the growth of the global healthcare BPO market. Further, the cost of installing and maintaining the systems is comparatively high, restricting the market's demand. Rapid changes in economic strategies may also negatively impact the market's growth.
