E-Prescribing Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Production, Consumption, Revenue, Company Analysis and Forecast 2021-2028

Published Date : Jan 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global E-Prescribing market size is expected to be worth around US$ 6.05 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global E-Prescribing market size was valued at US$ 1.10 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 24.10% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.

Growth Factors

Increasing emphasis on reduction of drug abuse & fraud, rising initiatives by the government to digitalize healthcare systems, and growing efforts on reducing medication errors are the major factors driving growth. However, high initial investment and resistance to adoption of new technology, by both patients & healthcare providers, restrain growth. On the other hand, improving healthcare infrastructure and increasing healthcare expenditure in developing countries are anticipated to provide numerous growth opportunities for the market. Moreover, using Electronic Healthcare Records (EHRs) with e-prescribing increases the potential for growth.

E-prescribing is widely used in preparation and maintenance of complete medication lists. Moreover, the technology also aids extraction of complete patient information and formulary with continuous data security checks. These services are gaining traction due to increasing application of technology in the healthcare sector and significant support from governments across the world. For instance, government initiatives include incentive programs to promote e-prescribing, such as the National Council for Prescription Drugs Program and the Clinical Health Act in North America.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2018, 7,000 to 9,000 people die due to medication errors in the U.S. every year. Furthermore, Adverse Drug Events (ADEs) account for almost 700,000 emergency visits and more than 100,000 hospitalizations. This technology is anticipated to reduce such errors by eliminating handwritten prescription. Moreover, the technology enables the prescriber follow formulary compliance by using the decision support systems, as well as improves the ability to transfer medical prescriptions.

Report Highlights

Based on products the market has been segmented into solutions and services. Solutions held a major market share of the product segment in 2020, owing to growing penetration and high cost of the software. Service segment is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period.

Untapped opportunities in developed and developing region are the major factor leading to growth of services segment. For instance, according to Center for Studying Health System Change (CSHSC), lack of electronic prescribing uptake in outpatient settings due to incomplete patient data, technological complexity, and physician attitude toward e-prescribing are the major factors that affect successful use and implementation of e-prescribing. According to Surescript Survey 2017, more than 70% of the U.S. hospitals prescribed electronically; however, almost 30% of the physicians still preferred paper-based prescribing.

Standalone integrated solutions held the major share in 2020; however, integrated e-prescribing solutions are expected to grow at a higher CAGR, owing to favorable government initiatives targeting implementation of integrated prescribing. The benefits and incentives offered by federal governments are expected to overcome the cost of moving from standalone to an integrated system, further leading to growth of the integrated systems market.

For large healthcare systems and organizations, which have the capacity to store large data, pay high upfront costs, and maintain servers, on-premise systems are a much reliable option. Increasing demand for data security & sharing and digitalization expenditure is expected to promote growth of on-premise solutions during the forecast period. Epic and Cerner Corporation are two of the major players in the on-premise e-prescribing market.

Hospitals held a major market share of the end-use segment, majorly due to the increasing adoption in these facilities. According to a survey conducted by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) in 2016, technologies that improve medication use have been implemented in more than 95% of the hospitals in the U.S., with e-prescribing & transcribing in almost 392 hospitals based in the U.S. Furthermore, according to Surescript, more than 3,20,000 office-based physicians currently prescribe using e-prescribing in the country.

handheld electronic devices, such as tablets, PDAs, and smartphones are generally preferred in exam rooms for e-prescribing due to easy access. However, strategically placed computers, outside or inside of the exam rooms, also support the process well, mitigating the need for handheld access. However, for accessing full EHR, computers with larger monitors are generally preferred, as they enable more data to be reviewed at the same time.

Controlled substances held a major market share of substances segment in 2020. According to Surescripts reports, e-prescribing and tracing of controlled substances, such as opioids, ensures effective use of drugs/substances and eliminates poor record keeping methods, used as an avenue for common drug abuse. The practices are widely accepted with almost 45.3 million prescriptions delivered electronically in 2016-a notable rise of more than 200% from the 12.81 million e-prescriptions for controlled substances in 2015.

Oncology held a major market share of the specialties segment in 2020. Errors in prescribing chemotherapeutic or cancer medicines can result in serious errors. Most of these errors can be attributed to the illegible prescriptions, as well as to lack of adequate documentation. Increasing number of medical errors in chemotherapy have led to adoption of the technology in hospitals specifically for oncology. For instance; BMI Healthcare, a hospital network, in 2016, installed iQemo, a cancer e-prescribing system supplied by the Knowledge Medical Systems, at 30 of its hospitals that offer chemotherapy.

Furthermore, government initiatives to promote e-prescribing are further expected to boost market growth. For instance, in 2018, the Department of Health and Human Services Australia invited Expressions of Interest (EOI) from the Victorian public health services for co-investment to implement oncology e-prescribing systems across the country. On the other hand, cardiology segment is expected to grow at a higher rate, owing to high demand for EMRs and e-prescribing systems from specialty-specific tests for OHIP & RAMQ Billing and workflow challenges.
