E-prescribing, also known as electronic prescribing, is a technological framework that enables physicians and other medical practitioners to electronically write and send prescriptions to a participating pharmacy rather than using handwritten or faxed notes or calling in prescriptions. E-prescribing, also known as electronic prescribing, is a web or cloud-based solution that allows healthcare providers to generate digital prescriptions. It is a computer-based process for creating and sending accurate prescription orders to a hospital-based or standalone pharmacy. E-prescription software can automatically refill prescriptions, manage medications based on a patient's history, and integrate with an electronic medical record (EMR) system.
ePrescribing Market Dynamics
- Increased adoption of EHR solutions
The need for EHR solutions is primarily driven by the government's expanding support for the adoption of EHR solutions. The implementation of electronic health records has simplified prescription filling in several ways. The integrating solutions offer a better availability of medical histories than a standalone e-prescribing system. The global COVID-19 outbreak has also resulted in an increase in the number of patients in hospitals, necessitating better patient data management. This is expected to boost demand for these solutions.
- Increasing E-prescribing in hospitals
Doctors are finding themselves better equipped with technology replacing something as basic but crucial in medicine as prescribing becomes more tech-savvy. A computer created, communicates, and filed out medical prescriptions is known as a "eprescribing." Its primary goal is to reduce the need of paper prescriptions and the danger of prescription error. These are the factors which propel the growth of the market.
- Development of e-prescribing technologies
The main issue fuelling the development of e-prescribing technologies is the escalating opioid crisis in the United States. While making it more challenging to engage in misuse or fraud, the electronic prescription in controlled medications (EPCS) system offers a transparent, secure method that makes it relatively simpler to prescribe various controlled substances to patients who genuinely require them. For instance, the opioid issue reached crisis proportions in 2018 and cost the United States more than USD 500 billion annually, according to surescipt projections.
- High cost of employment
The high cost of employment, security, and workflow issues and the increasing use of e-prescribing systems will obstruct the market's growth rate. The dearth of skilled professionals and lack of healthcare infrastructure in developing economies will challenge the eprescribing market.
The cost is not limited to only one time of purchase of system but also include recurrent expenses such as maintenance and support services.

COVID-19 Impact on ePrescribing Market
The COVID-19 pandemic won't have a direct effect on the ePrescribing market, but it will have an impact on the healthcare IT and EMR businesses, which will increase demand for e-prescribing tools both during and after the pandemic. The COVID-19 outbreak has led to an upsurge in teleconsultations. EHR, telemedicine, and e-prescribing functions are integrated to let prescribers build an interconnected network that ensures the usage of HCIT for patient diagnosis and medication prescription. The Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) rules permitting electronic prescription of restricted substances have also increased the frequency of electronic prescription transactions, as have the CDC's advice to use telemedicine services.
- In April 2020, DrFirst (US) partnered with ID.me (US) to help users of the company’s e-prescribe app to verify their identities within a few minutes. This is predictable to speed up the process for clinicians to prescribe drugs.
- In July 2019, NextGen Healthcare(US) announced its partnership with Optimize Rx (US) to provide real-time access to critical financial information, allowing providers to help patients choose appropriate medication plans per their coverage and budgets. This tool has been integrated with the company’s EHR workflow.
- In June 2019, Allscripts (US) acquired ZappRx (US) to help Veradigm’s e-prescribing solutions by integrating it with the automated prior authorization platform, thus adding value to its existing platform.
