The infection surveillance solution market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 11.81% to reach a market size of US$962.114 million in 2027 from US$440.317 million in 2020.  

The increasing number of cases of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and improving infection control and control solutions are leading to an increase in the adoption of infection surveillance solutions to aid in the proper and effective monitoring of the state of infections in patients and healthcare facilities.

Healthcare-associated infections are one of the most common types of infections that are acquired by patients whilst they are undergoing treatment at hospitals, which have improper sanitation and do not adhere to the disinfection and infection control and prevention policies and the stringent guidelines provided strictly.  According to the statistics provided by the World Health Organization, nosocomial infections, which are generally referred to as healthcare-associated infections, are increasingly frequent and an adverse event that plagues healthcare facilities and healthcare delivery globally. Approximately 7 in the developed countries and 10 in developing countries out of the admitted 100 patients are prone to and will acquire at least one type of healthcare-associated infection. The patients admitted to the neonates, and the intensive care units (ICUs) are also prone to the epidemic burden of healthcare-associated infections that too more in low-income and middle-income countries than the countries with high income.

In addition, the most common infection acquired during the provision of healthcare services is the urinary tract infection (UTI), and the infection that burdens lesser-equipped healthcare settings are surgical site infections (SSIs) and affect about one-third of the operated patients, which is up to nine times more than in the developed countries. In high-income economies, about 30% of patients in ICUs contract at least one healthcare-associated infection; in middle-income and low-income economies, the ICU-associated infections rate is two or three times more, and device-associated infections are 13 times higher than in the US. Even newborns are at high risk in developing countries, with the rate of infections three times or 20 times higher than in high-income countries. This is leading to the market players adopting infection surveillance solutions to effectively maintain the state of the hospital treatments, hospital surroundings, and all the devices and hygiene-related practices that are essential to achieve high infection control and infection prevention to minimize the spread of nosocomial infections. Thus, it plays a key role in augmenting market growth over the forecast period.

The increasing participation of the core organizations in taking steps to tackle the problem of the spread of infection during hospital treatment and encourage different healthcare facilities to make use of infection surveillance solutions.

The Hospital Epidemiology and Infection Control (HEIC), which is a part of John Hopkins Hospital (JHH), has two main objectives, to effectively perform comprehensive surveillance for healthcare-associated infections and to create, implement, support, and sustain interventions based on evidence to prevent HAI’s. This department makes use of the definitions of infection surveillance as provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Health and Safety Network. The hospital staff from HEIC provides feedback on hand hygiene performance and infection surveillance data to each hospital unit weekly.

The data trends regarding hand hygiene, healthcare-associated infections, and multi-drug-resistant prevention programs are also being reported on a wide range of institutional dashboards as well as quality reports. The primary requirement of an effective and comprehensive must include all the HEIC participation in several unit-based root cause analyses of each of the infections and programs to promote, monitor, and sustain the evidence-based practices.

The segments that need to be paid attention to that require measures are hand hygiene, healthcare-associated infections, and Multi-drug Resistant Organisms (MDROs).

COVID-19 Impact on Infection Surveillance Solution Market

The market was positively impacted by COVID-19. There was a severe scarcity of beds, medical personnel, and essential medical supplies in healthcare facilities as a result of the increase in COVID cases. To track and monitor COVID-19 infections in patients and collect information for better patient outcomes, healthcare organizations were forced to implement HCIT solutions, such as infection surveillance solutions, EHRs, telemedicine platforms, and patient registries. Additionally, the pandemic had forced several government agencies and enterprises to implement IT solutions for the healthcare industry.

For instance, the Singaporean government used several strategies to counteract COVID-19. Data collection from the entire nation's population was one of the strategies. In newly established Community Care Facilities (CCFs), the approach called for the deployment of surveillance technologies, with human resources concentrated on managing high-risk patients. In addition to providing general clinical guidelines to the healthcare IT community and healthcare providers, the Office of National Coordinator for Health Information Technology collaborated with the CDC to publish a variety of resources for reporting and tracking COVID-19.
