Abstract

This IDC study discusses how particular drivers of change will have a significant impact on technology in healthcare. Healthcare organizations have typically lagged behind and continue to rely on legacy technology. In a recent IDC Health Insights survey, payers and providers deploy what IDC calls technology accelerators such as IoT, 3D printing, next-generation security, cognitive/AI, augmented/virtual reality, and robotics. The economic, social, technology, and environmental factors are converging and present an opportunity for healthcare organizations across the globe to make significant enhancements in productivity and efficiency, which will yield positive clinical and financial outcomes.

"The worldwide healthcare predictions for 2017 clearly define the investment in 3rd Platform technologies and the accelerators that are driving digital transformation in healthcare," says Cynthia Burghard, research director, IDC Health Insights.
