Healthcare providers to deepen clinical technology adoption in next year

Not exactly something that applies directly to the Asia Pacific region but hey, when the US sneezes, the rest of the world catches a cold.

An annual study from Gantry Group, (read here) indicates that by the end of 2008, more than 80 percent of provider facilities will be invested in:

  • Digital medical imaging
  • Medication management/ ePrescribing
  • RFID patient identification/drug distribution
  • EMR/EHR
  • Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE)
  • Mobile applications (e.g. charge capture, rounding, prescriptions)
  • Patient documentation
  • Patient care planning solutions

I’d say not bad, judging from this study it seems that binaryHealthcare.com is covering most of the stuff that will be in demand.

Therefore, a big thank you to all readers who have send in their comments and suggestions. Keep your opinions rolling!
