The software will be connected across the hospital reception, pharmacy, case history, doctor’s suggestions, etc. A complete 360 degree view on each case can be easily found on integrated CPOE systems. Standalone systems are singular departments digitalizing their data, this is more uncommon than the integrated system.

Component Takeaway

Component segment is categorized into hardware, software, and services. Services category was of maximum significance, accounting for the highest revenue share. The outsourcing of this data included saving time, money and training staff constantly. When services are outsourced, it is done so to companies that are already effectively managing a similar profile. Hardware is the second highest market in terms of revenue, this can be attributed to the costs involved with setting the infrastructure that promotes conducive growth of CPOE.
