Medical Coding Market to Grow With 9.6% CAGR in Coming Years: P&S Intelligence

Medical Coding Market Research Report: By Classification System (International Classification of Diseases, Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System, Current Procedural Terminology), End User (Hospitals, Diagnostic Centers)

NEW YORK, June 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association (NHCAA), insurance frauds cost insurance companies, healthcare settings, as well as patients billions of dollars each year. Of the $3.6 trillion spent on healthcare in the U.S. in 2018, around 3% was accounted for by insurance frauds, as per the NHCCA. Some government and law enforcement agencies say that such frauds could account for almost 10% of the total healthcare expenditure, which would amount to roughly $300 billion.

As a result of the increasing concerns regarding such issues, the global medical coding market size was valued at $15.2 billion in 2019, which is expected to progress at a 9.6% CAGR between 2020 and 2030. With the help of billing standards and medical coding, uniform checklists are created, for medical billers to use during claims processing. Irregularities in such codes alert medical billers of a potential fraud, before the claim is submitted to the insurance company.

Medical Coding Market Segmentation Analysis

The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) category held the largest share in the industry in 2019, on the basis of classification system. This is because, via ICD, information can be organized in standard disease groupings, which makes it easier to store, retrieve, and analyze the data. It makes sure that the decisions being made, regarding claims, are backed by concrete evidence and allows this information to be shared easily among healthcare centers across regions and countries.

In the near future, the hospitals category, under segmentation by end user, would experience the fastest growth in the industry, as hospitals remain the most popular places among people to get medical attention. Further, by 2022, hospitals in all countries are expected to adopt ICD-11, as this standard has 55,000, or around four-times more the number of codes present in ICD-10. With more diagnostic codes, the amount of healthcare data being generated would rise substantially, which would make it difficult for billers and insurers to handle it. To remain unaffected by such increasing complexities, hospitals are adopting computer-aided medical coding systems (CACS) powered by artificial intelligence (AI).
