Infection is the invasion and multiplication of microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria and parasites that are not normally present within the human body. An infection may cause no symptoms and be hidden, or it may cause symptoms and be clinically visible. An infection may remain localized, or it may spread through the blood or lymphatic vessels to become systemic (present in the entire body). The global infection surveillance solutions market is growing due to the emergence of diseases caused by microorganisms that were previously not known. The microorganisms living naturally within the body are not considered as infectious for example, bacteria that normally live within the mouth and intestine such as E. coli do not cause an infection to the body. Hospital associated infections such as urinary tract infection, surgical site infections and pneumonia are increasing due to the use of contaminated devices, patient clothing, and other materials used in hospitals and clinics. This has thus provoked healthcare professionals and hospitals to adopt infection surveillance solutions to identify possible infections during the time the patient remains in hospital, and to develop necessary preventive measures for the same. These infection surveillance solutions also aid in diagnosing antibiotic resistant organisms (AROs) and infections due to non-sterile medical devices.
The infection surveillance solutions market is segmented on the basis of product and end user. The products are sub categorized into software and services. The software used for infection surveillance solutions are on-premise and cloud based software. The services include product support & maintenance, training & consultancy and implementation services. These surveillance solutions include usage of algorithms with specialized data mining software, electronic medical records and fully automated healthcare acquired infection (HAI) surveillance by employing clinical support based knowledge, that helps in identification of certain clinical terms. Several developments in infection surveillance solutions is making it simpler for healthcare staff to better understand surveillance software and its usage, which results in creating a trained workforce in the healthcare industry.

The growth in the global infection surveillance solutions market is expected to be mainly due to the increasing incidence of HAIs; policies introduced by government for preventing these HAIs; and increase in expenditure in healthcare sector. According to World Health Organization (WHO), 9.9% of the gross domestic product (GDP) of the world was spent on healthcare in 2014. Furthermore, cost-effectiveness, and redundancy of clinical data and the increase in number of surgeries drive the growth of infection surveillance solutions market.
