E-prescribing Market Dynamics and Trends

The global E-prescribing market is primarily driven by the need to decrease prescription errors, the rising focus on reducing fraud, controlled substances/drug abuse, and the increasing adoption of e-prescriptions by healthcare providers.

The increasing prescription drug errors, government efforts and growing geriatric population are pushing the market growth.

According to the Biomedical Journals, more than 237 million medication errors are made every year in England, the avoidable consequences of which cost the NHS upwards of £98 million and more than 1700 lives yearly; indicate national estimates. The FDA receives more than 100,000 reports annually associated with medication errors, mainly due to mistakes when reading a bad handwriting prescription and dispensing similar-sounding but completely different drugs. Moreover, several medical and surgical specialty organizations have made using E-Prescriptions obligatory. E-prescribing eases physicians from tracking-controlled substance prescriptions over multiple pharmacies, thereby reducing the chances of doctor shopping or over-prescribing. For instance, writing prescriptions for Schedule II, III, and IV controlled substances in New York requires e-prescribing as the prescriber must consult the state’s prescription monitoring program (PMP) registry. Furthermore, older patients are more likely to be affected by a medical error during medical care because they tend to take more medications than younger adults, therefore the growing geriatric population is fueling the global market growth; for instance, according to WHO statistics, there were 1.4 billion geriatric population in 2020 and estimated to be around 2.1 billion by 2050.

E-prescribing Market Segmentation Analysis

The E-prescribing market's web/cloud-based systems segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2029).

Web/cloud-based systems share the fastest-growing share in this market. It can be attributed to the increasing number of benefits it offers, including easy maintenance, low start-up and licensing costs, simple infrastructure requirements, and broader accessibility. Moreover, web/cloud-based systems provide enhanced productivity with faster and smoother implementation. For instance, With E-Prescribing, prescribers can track if patients fill prescriptions, allowing physicians to counsel patients on medication management if needed. Prescribers can also follow how often prescriptions of controlled substances are filled to monitor potential drug abuse. Also, many E-Prescribing cloud-based software programs make it easy for the prescriber to choose generic medicines which are more likely to be covered by the patient’s insurance. When the patient incurs fewer costs, there is a better chance they will comply with the needed drug therapy.
