The global pharmaceutical industry is slowly moving from the fully integrated model towards the model of outsourcing, where drug companies will utilize the expertise of its partners in clinical research, manufacturing, and other non-clinical services. Major segments that are outsourced in clinical research are clinical trials and central lab services. Post 2005, the outsourcing of drug discovery and pre-clinical services has also picked up. In the contract manufacturing sector, companies outsource API manufacturing to a larger extent compared to outsourcing of formulations and packaging, and non-clinical services. Non-clinical services that are frequently outsourced are supply-chain and logistics management, sales and marketing, HR, procurement, IT, and others. Currently, the global pharma outsourcing market is majorly driven by the factor of cost savings, coupled with increasing R&D costs, low productivity, and thin product pipeline also increasing cost pressures.

Low-costs destinations like India, China, Philippines, and the Latin American region are available for outsourcing, amongst which India has a major share in payer, provider and pharma outsourcing. China has a strong presence in pharma outsourcing, but has no significant share in payer and provider outsourcing. Philippines is also observed as a growing destination for the payer and provider outsourcing market. Most healthcare outsourcing activities are completed onshore in the U.S. to the destination BPO business. Healthcare outsourcing is largely managed in-house because of greater control on activities and less intellectual property issues.

Agreements, collaborations, partnership and joint ventures is the most common strategy used by companies to increase their market share and consolidate their market presence. The period of 2009 to 2011 witnessed 220 agreements, collaborations, partnership and joint ventures taking place in the global healthcare BPO market. These were used to acquire access to technologies and expertise not available in-house, and to build long-term relationships with the customers in order to secure repeat business.

The major players in the payer and provider outsourcing market are Accenture (Ireland), MedusInd (U.S.), Gebbs Healthcare (U.S.), Omega Healthcare (India) and Inventive (U.S.).
