One of the most prominent changes that have shaped the global medical billing outsourcing market, as it stands today, is the growing perception among small and mid-sized healthcare firms that outsourcing helps cut operational costs and up efficiency.

Moreover, the outsourcing of billing services is a testament to the trust that a healthcare institution places in the vendor. Thus, the risk of vendors losing customers owing to a data breach or error in billing is high.
It is thus expected that companies in the medical billing outsourcing market will gain new customers in the form of small and medium-sized healthcare entities.
