Globally, North America is the largest revenue cycle management (RCM) system market growing at a CAGR of 12.0% from 2014 to 2019. This growth is mainly attributed to decreasing reimbursements in the healthcare industry, reduction of overall healthcare costs, and increasing expenditure on information technology. Healthcare providers in the North American region are undergoing consolidation, and improving the purchasing capacity for RCM solutions in North America. The district health authority Nova Scotia on April 1, 2015, plans to create a new health system structure that unifies nine district authorities into one body. This is expected to improve the demand for healthcare information technology solutions in these markets.
