Report Description

Using vendor-led, tightly-constructed definitions, Signify Research’s just-published market research report on the North American population health management (PHM) market provides detailed market intelligence, estimates and forecasts for the key building blocks of a population health management solution, namely:

  • Data aggregation/analytics/risk stratification solutions & services
  • Care management/coordination solutions & services
  • Patient engagement solutions & services

Using reported data from leading PHM vendors, along with tight-definitions, Signify Research has developed a bottoms-up assessment of the market size (including quarterly metrics and market share estimates).

For the full year 2016, the North American PHM market was estimated to have been worth $3.7 billion, compared to $3.2 billion in 2015. The list of companies that drive these numbers remains long, and is indicative of the fact that the population health management market, despite reaching a certain level of maturity, is still highly fragmented. However, several companies including Optum, IBM Watson Health, Cerner, Allscripts, Conifer Health and Evolent have started to take market leading positions in terms of revenue share. Between them they are estimated to have accounted for just over 40% of the 2016 population health management market.

The report dives further into these market intelligence metrics, with market splits by quarter, vertical, provider type (e.g. ACO, IDN, ambulatory), solution type and captive v open markets. Market shares are presented for the leading 30 vendors by quarter for 2015 to 2016. Purchasers of the report will receive a mid-year update of the PHM market data which will include estimates for the PHM market size during the first two quarters of 2017.  Signify Research will also be publishing a companion report on the EMEA, Asia and Latin America population health management market in 4Q17.
