In addition to the dramatic alterations witnessed in the healthcare industry in the last decade, patients’ demands for personalized, effective and problem-solving health solutions continue to increase with the expanded expenditures required for treatment. Organizations must overcome challenges, such as patent expiry, increased competition, and compliance regulations, to shift treatment focuses to points of wellness, prediction and prevention. Frost & Sullivan regularly partners with companies to conquer these and other diverse hurdles.

“The healthcare industry today is converging in more ways than one–for instance, the lines between medical devices, patient monitoring and imaging have become blurred, with each sector having tremendous impact and influence on the other,” said Das. “Our offering provides continuous monitoring along a continuum of care platform, which will enable companies to understand the impact of these sectoral drivers and restraints on core markets.”
