The North American health-care information technology (IT) market will grow from $21.9 billion in 2012 to $31.3 billion by 2017, a compound annual rate of 7.4%.

However, according to the report, there are some barriers to growth in the North American health-care IT market:

poor standard health-care protocols; the high up-front costs of health-care IT solutions, the high maintenance and service costs of health-care IT solutions, interoperability issues, a shortage of health-care IT professionals; and security concerns.
