The global smart healthcare market is expected to reach USD 225.54 Billion by 2022. Fast technological progress in healthcare IT is expected to remain a key feature of the global smart healthcare market in the near and long-term future. The development of smart medical devices, such as smart pills and smart bandages, facilitate remote monitoring of patients, helps with the diagnoses of diseases, minimizes the risk of infection and assists healthcare personnel throughout the treatment process. It is expected to lay a new foundation for future healthcare IT market growth. On the other hand, increased investment funding and a low level of consumer awareness about what they offer may present challenges to manufacturers.
Hospitals and healthcare companies are often bogged down in paperwork, making it difficult to focus on the opportunities to focus on vendor relationships, and increase efficiency profit. Finance directors and managers may not realize how crucial IT solutions can be to the fiscal health and efficiency of a healthcare company or hospital. While competition for money and fear of something new holds organizations back, healthcare analysts advise that medical professionals should work with IT instead of against it.
To help with the treatment of patients hospitals need to work together. To do that doctors need to understand how hospitals make money and how to manage people. Dr. Bob Kocher, a partner at Venrock’s Palo Alto office, says that MDs benefit a great deal from getting business training — and that an MBA is one approach that works but that there are many others. Going to McKinsey, Bain, or BCG for a few years can give you a great foundation. Working at a company with terrific career paths and training like Google, IBM, or Kaiser is another approach.
Finally, being involved in a fast-growing start-up can also give you a broad range of experiences and learning — though this is a much higher risk path. To be effective, MDs need to learn how to use Excel, read a balance sheet, make a financial model, synthesize data into understandable presentations, and understand how value is created for customers and enterprises. They also need to learn how to work efficiently as part of a team, making others successful as well, and adding tangible value.

Our software development history is filled with successfully partnerships with many companies such as, Medoc, Rimed, and Medasense where we took care of all the common information systems tasks. They trusted us to take over UI development, Business Logic layer and APIs updates, integration and updating hardware connectivity layer, technical documentation, and auto-tests support. This allowed them to focus on the research and science part of the project, with much less “technical debt” in the project codebase. Take a look at our full Healthcare portfolio here.
