BioSpectrum Smart Healthcare Survey 2012
Bioscience companies across Asia are witnessing a silent shift in the way they operate and promote innovation. These companies, now, are actively working at a cross section of various scientific disciplines, most notably in integrating information technology in their products and solutions for diagnosis and treatment.
BioSpectrum conducted a Smart Healthcare Survey in October 2012 to document this shift and create a mechanism to measure the impact of this trend and that how deeply it has penetrated the industry and its segments.
Key findings of the survey
1. Healthcare technology providers make up more than 50 percent of this new segment - Smart Healthcare, which is on its way to establish itself as a market segment.
2. Smarter diagnostic kits make up almost 80 percent of this segment. However, since the players operate across sub segments, such as patient devices and imaging equipment, and have realized the value add of integrating information technology in their products, these sub segments are speedily catching up with diagnostics.
