Clinical alarm management solutions are adopted by hospitals and ambulatory surgical centres to manage and respond to clinical alarms as and when they arise to minimize alarm fatigue. Clinical alarm management solutions are implemented by several enterprises for a number of applications and include clinical decision support tools, mobility solutions, central monitoring systems, alarm auditing software, and clinical alarm reporting software. In its recent report titled, ‘Clinical Alarm Management Market: Global Industry Analysis (2012-2016) and Opportunity Assessment (2017-2027)’, Future Market Insights has conducted a thorough analysis of the global clinical alarm management market. The clinical alarm management market is anticipated to push past a value of US$ 4 billion by end 2027.

Component – Solutions Component Dominate Clinical Alarm Management Market

The solutions component is projected to be more than thrice the size of the services component at the end of the forecast period and key stakeholders in the clinical alarm management market are advised to take this into account. The solutions component could exceed a value of US$ 3 billion by the end of the decadal study with a third of this being in the clinical decision support tools sub-segment. However, a substantially higher CAGR is likely in the mobility solutions segment as the number of smartphone users has risen exponentially in the past few years. Most healthcare professionals access their smartphone to monitor their patients on a real-time basis via patient monitoring apps. This enhances caregiver efficiency by minimizing institutional operational cost and allows organizations to use mobility for alarm management as well as clinical decision support.

End User – Focus on Hospitals and Ambulatory Surgical Centres in Clinical Alarm Management Market

Hospitals and ambulatory surgical centres are the largest end-users in the clinical alarm management market and should remain so for the foreseeable future. Although hospitals are approx. thrice the size of ambulatory surgical centres, the latter is on track to post a higher CAGR of 9.5% from 2017 to 2027, making the segment vital for companies involved in the clinical alarm management market. A major challenge faced by hospitals is alarm fatigue that can occur because different clinical alarms generated by medical devices can have a devastating impact on clinicians, patients, and relatives. Alarm fatigue occurs when clinicians are desensitized and non-reactive on account of an overwhelming load and is a grave threat for patient safety. Human factors, staffing issues, and technological also come into play here and all this can significantly hamper growth of the clinical alarm management market.
