Silvia Piai EMEA Research Manager at IDC Health Insights said " Innovation in EMEA will move along the lines of four major driving forces: achieving the efficiency targets, the transformation of healthcare delivery models, the alignment of IT to the ever changing business needs and new sourcing models and technology selection metrics."
"Budgets cuts and healthcare service demand pressures have certainly added a further layer of complexity in healthcare IT, but changes in healthcare services offer and demand cannot be supported by just maintaining the status quo. The crisis has taken its toll on healthcare IT departments, but, today the third-generation platform technologies (cloud, social media, mobility, and Big Data) are offering to healthcare the opportunity to rethink their information systems in a more streamlined and agile environment." she adds.
