by Sharang Sharma

The healthcare Contact Center Outsourcing (CCO) market continued its growth trajectory at 8-10% in 2015-2016, above the market rate of the global CCO market, to reach an overall size of US$7.0-7.5 billion. Over the last two years, consumerism has increased within the healthcare industry, which has given rise to the need for year-round healthcare support. This is expected to be a core driver of future growth in the global healthcare CCO market. The CCO service providers are also looking at diversifying their buyer portfolios of healthcare CCO clients. To this, they have added more pharmaceuticals and life sciences players. These new clients are looking to leverage the expertise of CCO service providers to enhance their customer service quality. Service providers recognize this growth opportunity and are building relevant delivery capabilities to ensure long term success, rather than limiting themselves to short term gains.
