"European Healthcare EDI Market, [By Supplier (Distributors and Wholesalers, GPOs, Manufacturers), By Purchasing Organization (Hospitals, GPOs), By Transaction (ORDERS, ORDERSP, DESADV, RECADV, INVOIC)"] – Transaction Types and Its Penetration”
EDI provides fast, secure, and easy exchange of information between healthcare organizations. These advantages coupled with the growing competitiveness, rising adoption of mobile EDI, pricing pressure, and lower profit margins are driving greater uptake of EDI solutions among pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers in Europe. However, high cost of EDI implementation, lack of infrastructure, and EDI management issues are restrict the overall growth of the market.

In this report, the European healthcare EDI market is segmented based on type of transaction, type of purchasing organization and country. ORDERS, ORDERSP, DESADV, RECADV, and INVOIC are the most popular healthcare EDI transactions in Europe. ORDERS is the most frequently used transaction type used by various healthcare users in the region. In 2015, the EDI penetration rate in Europe was the highest in the U.K., followed by France, Benelux, Denmark, and Germany. It is estimated that EDI adoption is growing at a high rate among hospitals in Europe, with the U.K. accounting for approximately 70% of all European activity. In terms of users, the EDI adoption/penetration is maximum in the hospitals segment, with around 90% hospitals in the region using EDI to place orders with distributors and wholesalers. Among all European countries, the penetration rate of hospital EDI for ORDERS transactions with distributors is highest (97.3%) in the U.K. The penetration rate of orders placed via EDI among GPOs varied from 50%-60%; there has been a considerable rise in EDI adoption among GPOs in Europe over the last few years.

The increasing adoption of EDI solutions among hospitals, operational benefits and increased speed of transaction processing, and growing utilization of EDI solutions in supply chain management are the factors contributing to the growth of healthcare EDI market in Europe. Bayer AG, Pfizer Inc., GlaxoSmithKline PLC, and Abbott Laboratories are the EDI technology leaders in the European pharmaceutical and manufacturing sector.
