The Global medication management market is expected to register a CAGR of 13.4% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023.
Medication management is a strategy which ensures that the patient understands the purpose of the medications and takes it in the correct manner at the correct time. It also focuses on improving the use of medications for the patient’s condition. Interventions may include medication reconciliation, medication therapy management, patient/family education on medications and medication set-up simulations for the patient.
Rising geriatric population is one of the key factors driving the medication management market. Older adults tend to have significant comorbidities which in result increase the medication use and escalate the risk of poor outcomes. According to a 2018 study published in the Clinical Epidemiology, in high income countries, polypharmacy affects between 40% and 50% of older adults. Polypharmacy increases the risk of adverse drug-related events in older adults because a higher number of drugs are associated with a higher risk of harmful drug–drug interactions.
Various other factors such as rising healthcare IT funds, and need for reducing healthcare costs.
However, high software implementation and service maintenance costs can hamper the market growth over the forecast period.
