The research service identifies the key challenges faced by the MES and ECQM solution providers, and helps them identify the growth sectors both in segments and regions.
They will see a lower growth rate compared to the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, which will be the fastest growing region for MES and ECQM in regulated industries
The two most significant contributors to these markets are pharmaceutical and medical device end-users for both MES and ECQM markets,
Oil and gas is the largest end user segment for MES solutions, while medical devices is the largest end user segment for ECQM.
eCQMs rapidly are being phased into use for Medicare reimbursement; it is assumed that Medicaid and private payers soon will follow.
eCQMs are a part of a larger federal effort to reform physician payments--MACRA.
But it seems that, at least for now, a move to capturing discrete data elements and relying on eCQMs for quality measurements will shape the foreseeable payment incentive future.
