Business Strategy: Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Healthcare IT Trends, 2012-2013

This IDC Health Insights study aims to unearth the common trends that run through the disparate healthcare organizations in the Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) or APEJ region. About 310 healthcare executives across the region were interviewed in order to explore their sentiments and adoption plans for general and industry-specific IT solutions.

"What is heartening to see is that patient satisfaction tops the list when the region's IT executives were asked to name the top business concern that IT investments is set to address. This truly indicates that the concept of patient-centric care has come of age in the APEJ region," says Sash Mukherjee, senior market analyst, IDC Health Insights, Asia/Pacific. "It is equally heartening to see that security has emerged as a top technology objective for the APEJ healthcare IT executive. While investments in telecommunications, networking, and mobile devices are set to steadily increase over the next 12 months, there is still limited uptake of mobility solutions in the region. The smart healthcare organization will leverage the mobile revolution running through the region and invest in both clinical mobility and mobile health for better clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction," Mukherjee adds.
