The healthcare contract management software market is projected to reach USD 1,763 million by 2024 from USD 755 million in 2019, at a CAGR of 18.5% during the forecast period.
The growing need to reduce operational costs (while increasing the operational efficiency of healthcare organizations) and the growing need to maintain compliance with regulatory mandates are key drivers of this market. On the other hand, the dearth of in-house IT expertise and the reluctance of healthcare providers to adopt new methods of contract management are expected to restrain the growth of the healthcare contract management software market to a certain extent during the forecast period.
