The referral management market is categorized on the basis of type, component, delivery mode, end user, and region. By type, the market comprises self-referrals, professional referrals, and third-party referrals. The market, by component, is categorized into software and services. Based on delivery mode, the market is categorized into web-based, on-premise, and cloud-based. The market by end user is segmented into providers, payers, patients, and others. Based on region, the market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia, and the Rest of the World (Pacific countries, the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America).

A number of factors such as legislative reforms (for example, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in the U.S.), increasing government initiatives to incorporate IT solutions in healthcare globally, rise in aging population and incidence of chronic diseases globally, and the shortage of nursing staff and doctors are driving the growth of this market. Referral management solutions also provide several benefits they reduce costs, streamline operational processes, increase patient throughput, and improve the overall quality of healthcare. Their benefits are another factor boosting the adoption of these solutions.

However, despite the numerous benefits of referral management solutions, certain barriers such as the failure to reduce outpatient attendance, lack of skilled healthcare IT professionals, and concerns regarding the security of patient data are hindering market growth.

The North American market dominated the global market in 2014.
