COVID-19 Impact on the Healthcare Consulting Services Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the world’s population and economy. As a result of the pandemic, healthcare facilities face immense pressure to create a well-coordinated environment where all clinical and non-clinical functions are connected internally, and the organization operates in coordination with other healthcare units. The novel coronavirus pandemic has exerted enormous strain on the functioning of healthcare and life sciences industries. As of November 2021, more than 255 million confirmed cases were reported globally, with more than 5 million deaths (Source: WHO). This situation has compelled governments across the globe to take proactive measures to contain the outbreak.

The pandemic has profoundly impacted independent consulting, leaving the reduced business, reduced income, and delayed project work. However, pharma & healthcare were among the three sectors of consulting (along with chemicals and agriculture) that were least exposed to a drop in earnings during the pandemic. The state of urgency to combat the outbreak has led healthcare providers, payers, pharma & biotech companies, medical device companies, and government bodies to adopt advanced technologies, solutions, and services, exceeding traditional avenues to improve workflows. 

Organizations would thus, leverage healthcare consultants to optimize their budgets, create better value propositions, and evaluate their sources of credit. As economies re-open, most companies will need strategies to re-enter the market and map out financial scenarios. Companies might turn to consulting firms to restructure to better face the upcoming financial crisis. This is where consulting firms can offer expertise and guidance. Considering the benefits offered by healthcare consulting services to support end-to-end workflow, coupled with government initiatives to support HCIT adoption and improve healthcare infrastructure, the demand for these services is likely to grow, though at a steady pace, during the forecast period. Organizations that accept these changes and think of them as opportunities to evolve are likely to benefit, while those that resist the change and wait for the pre-COVID world to return will find the going increasingly tough over the coming years.

Drivers: Increasing pressure to reduce the rising healthcare costs

Cost savings forms an important consideration in consulting, as by adopting these services, companies can reduce costs on multiple factors, including resource management, operations, human capital, and space. There is an increased level of pressure on the margins of healthcare payers due to the rise of health insurance exchanges (online marketplaces to obtain health insurance from competing providers) in certain countries. Healthcare reforms have driven hospitals and other care providers to realign their operations to accommodate millions of uninsured people and comply with new regulatory requirements. Hospitals are now recognizing the importance of using the right communication and technology solutions and are in turn opting for healthcare consultants to select the models best suited to their needs. The demand to update existing technology to boost efficiency and lower costs is thus driving the growth healthcare consulting services market. However, shrinking healthcare budgets remain a challenge for market players.

In addition, the need to reduce costs through the effective use of technology and the optimum utilization of financial resources will help in improving the penetration rate of healthcare consulting services. Hence, a large number of healthcare payers and providers are expected to depend on healthcare consulting firms to improve their work efficiency and business processes. As healthcare continues to take up a larger part of the overall economy, structural changes, such as a greater push towards paying for value, greater emphasis on care management, and increased cost-sharing with consumers, are taking a stronger hold, pulling back against the rapid healthcare spending growth. Though medical costs have hovered around the same level, between 6% and 7%, over the last five years, the aforementioned factors are expected to drive healthcare expenditure. Rising healthcare costs and increasing pressure to curtail the same without impacting the quality of care are thus expected to considerably boost the growth of global healthcare consulting services.

Restraints:  Increasing number of hidden costs of consulting services

Most healthcare consultants have a specific focus area of expertise (operations, strategy, finance, etc.) or an industry they specialize in. Companies identify a need for consultants when a significant change must be facilitated to reach business goals or solve complex business problems. These skills may not exist inside the business, or full-time employees do not have the capacity to facilitate the change or solution. Consulting firms, therefore, lease their expertise to a client for a defined period with set outcomes and goals to help the organization move forward.

Improper planning and financial allotment for consulting activities often negatively impact cost savings and the business value that can be derived from consulting. Companies planning finances while opting for consulting services fail to consider unforeseen costs, such as those incurred while evaluating and selecting a vendor, managing offshore contracts, process transition, and enhancing security and severance pay for employees. Calculating the total cost of consulting services, especially IT, has always been a challenge, but the changing nature of IT coupled with unexpected expenses expose organizations to even more hidden charges. In many consulting engagements, the role of the retained technology resources is evolving along with the organization’s realignment around business outcomes and product centricity. The cost to onboard the necessary skills, orient managed services providers, and restructure essential controls is significant and not contemplated in most consulting agreements. Even as other IT service areas have embraced outcome-based pricing, consulting is still largely charged on a time and materials basis, which may incur additional costs at times. Such hidden costs are thus likely to limit the market growth to some extent during the forecast period.

Opportunities: Increasing consolidation in the healthcare industry

Over the last few years, there has been a consistent rise in the number of merger and acquisition activities in the healthcare industry. During merger activities, synchronizing the digital and IT infrastructure of multiple entities is a very challenging task. In this regard, IT departments must handle data migration and synchronization and the ongoing management of electronic medical records. In addition, old and incompatible systems must be remodified across the expanding enterprise, which is an expensive and time-consuming process. There are also challenges in intra-enterprise communication and data sharing, along with the growing demand for anytime-anywhere access to patient data.

The involvement of experienced digital health & IT consultants in these activities can help synchronize and standardize systems across the enterprise/organization. This approach also allows consolidation of patient medical records and associated data from multiple departments and locations into a unified system, which helps standardize patient data access and archiving across the enterprise, thus enabling advanced data mining, simplified data management, and optimized disaster recovery. With the increasing number of mergers and acquisitions in the healthcare industry, an increasing number of clients are expected to require the support of healthcare consultants to overcome related challenges seamlessly and cost-effectively.

Challenges: Rising number of multi-sourcing approaches

Rather than using a one-size-fits-all approach, a growing number of businesses are breaking up larger consulting contracts into smaller pieces and employing the services of several suppliers to carry out tasks. Healthcare organizations are slowly adopting the multi-sourcing model as consulting firms do not necessarily hold expertise in each practice area. In this regard, healthcare providers, payers, and government organizations are pushing multiple consulting firms to collaborate to deliver projects. However, multi-sourcing could have its problems and issues as it requires effective and robust service integration between suppliers. This might negatively impact the profitability of consulting firms.

North America holds the largest share in the healthcare consulting services market

North America dominated the healthcare consulting services market, with a share of 46.8% in 2021, followed by Europe (27.3%) and the RoW (17.5%). The availability of government funding for the development of state-wide and nation-wide healthcare information exchange, the increased preference for HCIT solutions, the increased number of favorable initiatives by regional governments during the COVID-19 pandemic, the presence of large hospitals that demand integrated healthcare networks, the presence of major players offering healthcare consulting services, and high adoption rate of these services by healthcare organizations to improve care coordination, patient care, and business operations across the health systems are some of the key factors driving the adoption of healthcare consulting services in the region.

The bottom-up approach was employed to estimate the overall market size. After that, market breakdown and data triangulation were used to estimate the market size of segments and sub-segments.

Secondary Research

The secondary research process involved the widespread use of secondary sources, directories, databases (such as Bloomberg Businessweek, Factiva, and D&B Hoovers), white papers, annual reports, company house documents, investor presentations, and SEC filings of companies.
