This IDC Health Insights study analyzes the key IT trends that will impact Western European healthcare organizations in the next 12-18 months. It presents a European view on IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Healthcare 2016 Predictions (IDC #259908, November 2015), contextualizing the predictions discussed in the global study to the European environment. It also provides healthcare executives with practical advice on where to focus IT investments and how to manage the procurement, implementation, and operation of these technologies to digitally transform their enterprises.
"A 360-degree view of the patient is a key enabling factor for digital transformation in European healthcare, and 3rd Platform technologies are in turn making it finally possible, driving data accessibility and standardization as well as increasing organizations' reach and capabilities," said Silvia Piai, senior research manager, IDC Health Insights. "It is important for healthcare executives to recognize that digital transformation is beyond technology — it impacts data, people, processes, and strategies. This report provides not only a view of the healthcare trends and their implications but also a comprehensive approach for healthcare providers' IT and non-IT executives embarking on the digital transformation journey."
