These advantages are playing a key role in replacing paper-based ordering systems by CPOE systems and thus are contributing in the market growth.Governmental regulations pressurizing healthcare providers for implementing CPOE systems, growing trends of IT integration across healthcare facilities and growing concerns towards patient safety are some other factors driving the market growth worldwide. However, factors such as high implementation cost which also includes training, and implementation causing disruption to existing healthcare settings are responsible for the slow adoption rate of CPOE systems.

Geographically, North America represents the largest regional market for computerized physician order entry (CPOE) systems. In the United States, healthcare providers have governmental pressure to implement CPOE across their facilities. Growing adoption of other healthcare IT systems in the region such as electronic medical record (EMR) is also contributing in the market growth of CPOE systems as CPOE systems are integrated with EMR. In developing nations of Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World, reluctance of medical professionals towards the adoption of IT systems, low training and exposure to high-tech softwares are major reasons affecting the market growth in the region.Eclipsys Corp., IDX Systems Corp.,Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc., GE Healthcare, McKesson Corporation and Siemens Healthcare are some major players operating in this market space.
