Strategic Sourcing Guide to Medical Software Development Services Procurement

Overview

The market for Consultancy and its sub-segments such as Medical Software Development Services are at an interesting intersection. The market is rapidly showing signs of a great divide - at one extreme is a low-cost market with almost commoditized services and at the other end is the market for high cost specialized services. Medical Software Development Services vendors are adopting starkly different business models and cost structures in an effort to address both the markets.

Most clients now prefer splitting a single project among different vendors as it enables them to allocate parts of a project to specialized professional firms and keep the supplier base wide enough. Some clients adopt this strategy to understand the capability and performance of individual supplier and then pick one or a smaller set of suppliers for future contract opportunities.

Traditionally, clients were charged on per diem basis for Medical Software Development Services. However, rising pressure from clients to decrease pricing has resulted into an alternative pricing model of value-oriented billing where supplier's remuneration is linked to the performance or outcome of the project.

Trends like these and many others discussed in this report are necessitating a relook at the way Medical Software Development Services is procured and the procurement cost saving opportunities that exist.
