Key Market Dynamics

E-prescribing systems are widely used in the preparation of complete medication lists. Moreover, they also aid data security checks and extraction of complete information of patient history and formulary. The global E-prescribing market is gaining traction due to increasing applications in healthcare and substantial support from governments across the globe.

Growing need for improved healthcare quality and minimized medication errors is another key driver expected to fuel the market growth during the forecast period. A large number of medical and healthcare centers and hospitals in developing economies are increasingly implementing electronic health record systems (EHRs), which will further bolster the demand for E-prescribing.

However, widespread adoption of E-prescribing systems is facing limitation due to higher initial costs and risks related to security and privacy of patients’ data. This is a major factor that will continue to deter the market growth over the forecast period.

Developing markets still encounter with a set of longstanding roadblocks, including inadequate IT expertise and low availability of high-speed broadband facilities. These are also predicted to continue hampering the market growth, especially in emerging economies.
