Overview of This Study:
The study involved four major activities in estimating the size of the global ePrescribing market. Exhaustive secondary research was done to collect information on the utilization of different solutions and their regional utilization trends. Industry experts further validated the data obtained through secondary research through primary research.
Furthermore, the market size estimates and forecast provided in this study are derived through a mix of the bottom-up approach (country-level adoption of various EHR solutions and utilization of ePrescribing funcitonality) and top-down approach (assessment of utilization/adoption/penetration trends, by type of product& service, delivery mode, end user, and region). After that, market breakdown and data triangulation methods were used to estimate the market size of segments and subsegments.

COVID-19 Impact on ePrescribing Market
The COVID-19 pandemic will not directly impact the e-prescribing market; however, its impact on the healthcare IT and the EMR markets will drive the demand for e-prescribing solutions during and after the global pandemic. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the number of teleconsultations has increased. The integration of EHR, telemedicine, and e-prescribing functionalities aid prescribers in creating an interconnected network that ensures the use of HCIT to diagnose and prescribe medicines for patients. In addition, recommendations by the CDC to use telemedicine services and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) regulations for the electronic prescription of controlled substances have increased the number of electronic prescription transactions.
Expected Revenue Growth:
The global ePrescribing market size is projected to reach USD 3.3 billion by 2025 from USD 1.2 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 23.3%. Factors such as the increasing adoption of EHR solutions, government initiatives and incentive programs, rising focus on reducing the abuse of controlled substances, increasing focus on reducing medical errors, and the need to curtail the escalating healthcare costs are driving the growth of the e-prescribing market.
Additionally, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the use of telemedicine modules and telehealth consultations. This is further driving the adoption of e-prescribing solutions. However, the high cost of deploying e-prescribing solutions, reluctance among healthcare professionals to adopt these solutions, and concerns regarding security and workflow are expected to restrain the growth of this market to a certain extent during the forecast period.
Geographical Growth Scenario:
North America will continue to dominate the ePrescribing market in 2025
In 2019, the large share of this North American region can be attributed to the stringent legislative and accreditation requirements regarding healthcare, high adoption of HCIT technologies, regulatory requirements regarding patient safety, and the presence of a large number of e-prescribing solution providers in the region.
