IDC Health Insights: Canadian eHealth

A number of key drivers — profound demographic changes, the reality of increased wait times, chronic diseases, outcome-based care, and other pressing industry challenges — compel the Canadian healthcare system to deliver more with less. IDC Health Insights: Canadian eHealth report series focuses on hot topics in Canadian healthcare. For 2019, the service is slated to publish targeted studies: spending trends for 2019 and 2020, the digital transformation occurring in the sector, and a case study of one of Canada's most innovative healthcare delivery vendors.


Approach

IDC Health Insights will undertake a combination of qualitative and quantitative primary and secondary research to craft these reports.


Topics Addressed

Throughout the year, this service will address the following topics:

  • Technology adoption and spending trends, including the role of digital technologies in providing care in Canada
  • Innovation in healthcare, driven by start-ups, changes in procurement processes, and evolution of transformative technologies
  • The increasing importance of collaborative technologies (As the use of multidisciplinary teams increases and the role of the primary care physician takes on increasing importance, the need for collaboration and sharing information will also increase.)

  1. Who are the key players that could become customers or partners?
