This IDC Perspective looks at key developments and news in the European hospitals industry in 4Q19.
"The last quarter of 2019 saw a rise in investments in electronic health records. European hospitals are investing in solutions that can support better data integration, increased workflows optimization, and the delivery of smarter digital services to patients. European hospitals are leveraging national programs and funding plans to transform their record systems and support the spread of best practices across the country, mostly relying on IT vendors with successful track records and strong geographical presence in the market. Healthcare technology vendors and service providers should look at these deals and initiatives to monitor the evolution of the market in terms of demand and competition," said Giulia Besana, research analyst, IDC Health Insights.
