The European Healthcare EDI Market is growing at a fast pace. Europe is one of the major markets for the use of EDI in healthcare supply chain. Pharmaceutical wholesalers were early adopters of EDI in Europe, and currently process nearly 92%–95% of their orders through EDI. Due to growing competition and decreasing profit margins, pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers in Europe are under increasing pressure to implement EDI systems that help them cut operating costs and remain competitive and profitable. ORDERS, DESADV, and INVOIC are the most preferred EDI transaction types for supply chain management in hospitals across Europe.

EDI primarily focuses on the electronic exchange of business transactions such as purchase orders, shipment authorizations, shipment acknowledgements, advanced shipment notices, or invoices. EDI provides a fast, secure, and easy exchange of information between healthcare organizations. Most of the hospitals in Europe are focusing on deploying a full suite of electronic processes with automated methods to track the complete process of purchase order acknowledgement, invoice creation/matching, and processing to the accounts payable system.
