Global Industry Dynamics:
Drivers: Increased adoption of EHR solutions
Growing government support for the adoption of EHR solutions and the need to curtail the escalating healthcare costs are the major factors driving the demand for such solutions. In addition, the COVID-19 outbreak worldwide has led to a larger patient volume in hospitals and the need to better manage patient data. This is expected to further drive the demand for these solutions.
Restraint: High cose of deployment
Despite their benefits, end users remain hesitant to adopt e-prescribing solutions mainly due to the high costs involved. The costs are not limited to the one-time purchase of a system, but also include recurrent expenses such as those incurred by implementation services, maintenance and support services, integration of e-prescribing with EHR/EMR, and, in some instances, training and education. This restricts smaller hospitals and office-based physicians from investing in e-prescribing solutions, especially in the emerging APAC and Latin American markets.
Opportunities: Increased adoption of integrated telehealth solutions due to COVID-19
Even before the onset of the global pandemic, players in the EHR market had started integrating the telehealth feature with their existing solutions, due to advantages offered by telehealth consultations such as increased patient engagement in remote monitoring and reduction in overhead costs. However, the adoption of this feature increased significantly during the COVID-19 crisis.
