This IDC Perspective looks at key developments and news regarding European digital hospitals in 3Q19. It highlights major ICT deals signed and major initiatives put in place. Hospital technology vendors and service providers should examine these deals and initiatives to monitor the evolution of the market in terms on demand and competition.
"European digital hospitals are increasingly investing in AI and machine learning solutions to support clinical and operational use cases. Healthcare staff shortages, clinicians' workloads, and the need to respond to an increasing demand of healthcare services in the future are pushing hospitals to adopt solutions that can hasten clinical and operational processes while offering added value to patients. Taking a long-term view that sees AI integrated deeper into hospitals' daily workflow, providers will need to maintain open access to innovation that leverages a wider ecosystem of players and fosters scalable solutions across digitally savvy environments," said Giulia Besana, research analyst at IDC.
