MARKET RESTRAINTS:

High costs associated with EDI software are one of the major factors hampering the healthcare EDI market growth. Most healthcare providers adopt the EDI software in the high range, but installing this software may cause high spending, which terrifies the providers. The involvement of third-party solutions, clearing houses, and indecent internal systems are the primary reasons for adding high-cost transactions. Due to the increased investments, the healthcare EDI market is becoming low in regions like Europe and North America by the small and medium providers, affecting the total cost of the ownership.

Limitations of the End-User and the hospitals requirements are the challenges facing the healthcare EDI market. The EDI witnesses limited success due to the care centers atmosphere, like hospitals using the EDI and required organizations. Small Users have limited IT resources, which is limiting their financial growth and strength, preventing the adoption of EDI. However, the prominent vendors have the resources and sufficient budget to deploy and use the healthcare EDI. Adoption of the EDI is a process that consumes time. The major challenge is more resources and mandates to implement the EDI.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global healthcare EDI market:

Due to the latest COVID-19 pandemic, many people attend healthcare services regularly; as of November 30, 2020, WHO reports showed 62.3 million confirmed COVID-19 cases and 1.4 million deaths worldwide. The number of patient data has risen worldwide due to the COVID-19 epidemic. With the COVID-19 pandemic, several nations, including the entire European Union, the United States, India, and Australia, have implemented nationwide lockdowns. The use of healthcare EDI solutions, which help healthcare providers and payers exchange patient data, has increased due to these lockdowns and restrictions related to social distancing. The advantages of this technology have been shown even further during the current COVID-19 pandemic when EDI is assisting healthcare providers in providing treatment to patients who are not infected with COVID-19. For example, in April 2020, India's Cloudnine Group of Hospitals collaborated with Dunzo, a 24/7 online portal, to provide vital medicines to expectant mothers and their babies at their doorstep. Due to the global health crisis, the use of EDI solutions is expected to increase.
