Global E-Prescribing Market to Reach $888M by 2019

The global e-prescribing market is projected to be valued at $887.8 million in 2019, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 23.5 percent, according to a Transparency Market Research news release.

In 2012, the market was valued at $203.4 million.

The e-prescribing market is experiencing significant growth, partly due to government initiatives to implement such systems to improve quality and reduce medication errors.

As more providers implement electronic health records with e-prescribing capabilities, the market is going to see a surge in growth, according to the news release.

However, high costs of implementing such systems, patient privacy and security concerns and lack of high-speed broadband facilities and IT professionals in rural areas present barriers to market growth, according to the release.

While Europe is currently the largest market for the e-prescribing system, North America is the fastest-growing region.
