This IDC Survey analyzes the results of IDC's 2019 Global IoT Decision-Maker Survey on European healthcare organizations through the lens of the Digital Determination blueprint. The European healthcare providers sample consists of between 147 and 152 respondents.
"In their path toward digital determination, European healthcare organizations are still in the process of defining a mission and a governance framework to strategically support Internet-of-Things (IoT) projects, which are consequently mainly implemented in silos. To succeed in implementing an IoT platform that scales capabilities across the enterprise, providers will need to align IoT projects with the organization's strategy and leverage IoT-generated data internally and externally," said Giulia Besana, research analyst at IDC Health Insights.
"Patient experience and productivity gains are key non-IT key performance indicators (KPIs) that healthcare organizations across Europe are starting to use to demonstrate the inherent value of IoT projects. These KPIs set the bar high, and to succeed, healthcare organizations need to evolve from IT-department-led decision-making processes and to share ownership with different departments to align technology and business needs from the start of projects and set solid foundations for a companywide IoT strategy," said Silvia Piai, research director, IDC Health Insights
