Such factors are considered to create opportunities for the market growth. The market will experience a sturdy growth owing to factors such as rising demand to curb the cost of healthcare and growing support from the government for healthcare IT projects. Also, with the growing adoption of EDI software by the pharmaceutical companies, benefits associated with the adoption of EDI such as cost savings, standardization, faster processing, and improved productivity, and implementation of favorable funding policies, the market is likely to flourish.
