Patient portals are an important form of patient engagement solutions that are gaining popularity across the globe. The use of health information technologies and online resources in healthcare boosts care quality by improving care access, efficiency, chronic disease management, and patient & family involvement. Portals, when integrated with EHRs (electronic health records), can offer various features that enhance patient-provider communication and involve patients in their own care. The benefits of patient portals have fueled their adoption globally. This market is expected to reach USD 2.74 billion by 2020 from USD 1.19 billion in 2015, at a CAGR of 18.1%.

On the other hand, data security & privacy concerns, high cost of deployment of patient portal solutions, and requirement of infrastructural investments to support patient portals are expected to restrain the growth of the market to a certain extent. Cloud-based patient portal solutions pose a significant growth opportunity for players in the market. In addition to this, the lack of health literacy is a major challenge for the market.

Integrated patient portals are expected to account for the major share of the global patient portal market, by type. Integrated portals allow a user to complete multiple business functions from within the same interface and are provided by the same vendor as an EHR system.
