NEW YORK, May 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report “U.S. Behavioral Health EHR Market Size, Share and Trends Analysis Report, By End-use and Segment Forecasts, 2022 – 2030” – https://www.reportlinker.com/p06278026/?utm_source=GNW
The U.S. behavioral health EHR market size is expected to reach USD 459.1 million by 2030. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.07% from 2022 to 2030. Electronic health record (HER) software is extremely beneficial to behavioral nursing practice because it facilitates communication between clinicians, thereby avoiding unnecessary duplication of services. With clinical and financial consequences threatened, behavioral care practitioners are adopting health IT solutions, such as EHR technology, at a faster rate than in previous years.
According to a recent study published in Perspectives on Health Information Management, availability and a clear grasp of the benefits of EHRs are among the main factors driving the adoption of health IT in mental health care. Additionally, a study published in PLOS One showed that psychiatric hospitals using certified EHR technology had a higher overall patient experience and higher patient satisfaction with the transition to care.
In addition, their implementation has improved the availability of healthcare information for patients. Positive patient perceptions of hospitals are driving EHR adoption by behavioral care providers.
According to the National Center for Drug Abuse Statistics, in 2020, about 20 million people in the United States had substance use disorders, of which only 2.5 million were in treatment. Therefore, there is considerable room for improvement in the delivery of care in behavioral health care. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the 2020 healthcare budget for drug control is estimated to be about $35 billion. The use of EHRs is critical in substance abuse treatment as it can facilitate improved care coordination and clinical quality of care. Improved care coordination is expected to improve treatment outcomes as physicians can share treatment protocols and other critical clinical information with another physician. Finally, the use of electronic medical records offers broad potential to enhance the care of people with this disorder. All these factors are expected to drive the market.
The COVID-19 pandemic has increased stress, worry, hopelessness, depression and fear in the population and may increase the prevalence of mental health care problems. Hence, with the growth of mental health care problems, the demand for online diagnosis and treatment platforms will increase, thereby propelling the market growth.
Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has raised awareness of the need for mental health EHR systems to respond to the crisis. For example, Netsmart (US) partnered with the California Department of Veterans Affairs in April 2020. (CalVet, USA). The collaboration helped CalVet implement Netsmart’s people-centric EHR platform, myUnity, to improve its clinical and operational performance in delivering daily care to residents.
