This IDC Survey presents key findings from the U.S. Healthcare Provider Technology and Services Survey.

This Survey focuses on those findings that are pertinent to U.S. hospitals and medical centers.
"U.S. hospitals and medical centers face a range of challenges, namely in the care model shifting to ambulatory and home settings, the rise of consumerism, burnout, cyberthreats, rising costs, and lower margins," says Mutaz Shegewi, research director, IDC health insights.
