Healthcare Descriptive Analytics Market Size (2021 to 2026)

The global healthcare descriptive analytics market size is estimated to be worth USD 68.6 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 24.8% between 2021 and 2026.

Descriptive analytics is a data analytics method that uses data mining to examine the number of positive tests in a given population over time to assess how infectious a virus is. Healthcare descriptive analytics can help determine what occurred in a given time span, such as how many patients were hospitalized last month, what number of patients choose home care facilities, or how many procedures for a specific disease were performed in the previous year. This data is analyzed and published in human-readable formats such as percentages, standard deviations, figures, and averages. Overall, the descriptive study summarises the medical condition over time and can turn large data into actionable observations. Healthcare descriptive analytics aids in task management of healthcare providers, benchmarking results against government standards and identifying opportunities for change Descriptive analytics offers useful insights on previous market failures and successes. Clinical data analytics, financial data analytics, institutional data analytics, and academic data analytics all use descriptive analytics.


Technological advancements are one of the primary factors driving the global healthcare descriptive analytics market growth.

The adoption of emerging technology is a major factor driving the market for healthcare descriptive analytics. The growing use of big data analytics in the healthcare sector aids in the processing and interpreting data from various sources, which improves patient service; the introduction of social media also affects the healthcare analytics sector. In recent years, the use of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) or Electronic Medical Records (EMR), and other data analytics resources has grown dramatically. According to Definitive Healthcare 2020 figures, almost % of vital access hospitals have an EHR system in operation. The majority of Member States with national EHR systems report EHR system integration with laboratories (77%), pharmacies (72%), and image archiving and communications systems (PACS) (56 %). In addition, wearable technology, which contains a range of sensors for tracking different tasks and conditions of the human body, is increasingly evolving. Clinical Decision Support (CDS) applications in hospitals analyses patient evidence on the spot and guides clinical professionals. These systems utilize a large amount of data, which can then be analyzed using different forms of healthcare analytics to create personalized medicine. With the rise of AI, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing (NLP), and Blockchain, data collection has become a much simpler method.

Rising government funding propels the healthcare descriptive analytics market forward.

Many governments are funding data projects in the healthcare and life sciences sectors. This assistance improves accountability while still benefiting patients. As a result, there has been a lot of activity in healthcare data analytics in recent years, increasing the market for descriptive data analysis. For example, as part of a national cost-effectiveness initiative, the Italian Medicines Agency gathers and analyses clinical evidence on costly new medications. The government could revise prices and market access conditions based on the effects of this initiative. Furthermore, the federal government grants relevant stakeholders, including those in the private sector, access to the results. For reference, the HealthData.gov site provides federal databases with information on healthcare service quality, the most recent medical and scientific knowledge, customer product data, urban health outcomes, government spending data, and various other subjects. All of these activities are contributing to the development of the healthcare descriptive analytics market.


Lack of expertise and issues with data storage limits the healthcare descriptive analytics market growth.

However, a lack of expertise and data storage capacity can stymie the growth of the healthcare descriptive analytics market. In the healthcare descriptive analytics project, a large amount of data is gathered and analyzed. Data research necessitates the use of experts with a keen eye for detail. In addition, there is a scarcity of IT experts who can interpret digital evidence. Besides this, data storage is scarce, impeding the growth of the healthcare descriptive analytics market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global healthcare descriptive analytics market:

COVID-19 accelerates the demand for the healthcare descriptive analytics market. Since the end of January 2020, when SARS-CoV-2 was declared a public health emergency. This covid – 19 pandemics increased the need for descriptive data analytics. The descriptive data analytics assess how the coronavirus spreads and aids in disease control planning. The real-time COVID-19 trackers that constantly collect data from sites all over the globe are assisting healthcare professionals, academics, epidemiologists, and politicians in collecting and analyzing event data on a global scale. The GPS data evaluates the movement of people in an area or region. The data resulting from GPS analyze the people movement in region or city. This data helps to view whether there is compliance with social distancing or not. Furthermore, the COVID-19 Real World Evidence (RWE) studies collect data from worldwide, which aids in advancing therapies that are more patient-centric and patient-friendly.

The descriptive study further reveals that male patients have a higher risk of coronavirus infection than female patients. It further determines the signs of coronavirus infection and demonstrates that the patients suffering from covid – 19 have various symptoms, such as flu, diarrhea, fatigue, cough, and sore throat. It assists the government in educating people to keep them from being sick. Moreover, descriptive analysis assists businesses in understanding how customer behavior has evolved as a result of covid – 19. The use of descriptive and predictive analytics and the prompt updating of COVID-19-related analytics data has assisted many governments in developing public health policy and successfully communicate with the general public.

This market research report on the global healthcare descriptive analytics market has been segmented and sub-segmented into the following categories and analyzed market size and forecast until 2025.

Healthcare Descriptive Analytics Market – By Product:

  • On-premise
  • Cloud-based

Based on the product, On-premise was the most popular delivery option, accounting for more than half of all revenue. The installation of services and solutions on computers within the company is part of the on-premises delivery methodology. Even while the software is deployed on-site, it can also be accessed from afar, resulting in lower power usage, lower costs, and more efficiency.

During the forecast period, the Cloud-based delivery model is predicted to be the fastest-growing segment since it allows for the remote storage of huge amounts of data to free up space on devices and promotes data retrieval according to the client's needs. In addition, these cloud-based services provide a lot of storage, access, and security, which propels the segment forward.

Healthcare Descriptive Analytics Market – By Application:

  • Hospitals
  • Clinics
  • Diagnostic Centers
  • Academics and Research Institutes
  • Others

Based on the technology, Due to technologically improved solutions by healthcare providers and payers' increased attention on early detection of fraud and minimizing avoidable costs, the Financial segment is predicted to rise significantly throughout the forecast period. Healthcare analytics for financial applications is being driven by the increasing burden on financial teams at hospitals and health systems to identify ways to decrease costs without impacting the quality of treatment. Fraud analysis, risk adjustment and evaluation, and claim settlement are some of the most important financial applications.

Over the forecast period, the Clinical applications segment is predicted to increase at the fastest rate. Clinical application usage is expanding due to several benefits such as increased revenues, generating insights, and cost savings by utilizing real-time medical data. Furthermore, for many organizations, the increased use of clinical analytics has improved population health, fewer medication errors, and cost savings.
