Hospital Information Systems in Brazil: The Key Piece of the Healthcare Puzzle

Frost & Sullivan will host a live briefing on Thursday, September 18, at 3:00 PM EDT to provide industry participants an overview of a recently published study focused on hospital information systems in Brazil.

Recently, many hospitals have been investing in information systems as an overriding aim to prevent escalating costs. In response to recent industry growth, participants are preparing for intense competition and jockeying for optimal positioning within the market. Vendors are developing their products, enhancing interoperability capabilities and offering connectivity and compatibility with previous systems, in order to meet clients needs and take advantage of new and promising market dynamics. Highlights of the briefing include analysis of: technological trends, HIS market sizing, potential market, and dimension of expected HIS benefits.

This briefing is based upon ongoing Healthcare analysis and it will benefit market participants, hospital managers and health insurance companies by discussing emerging trends and providing forward projections for the Hospital Information System Market in Brazil.

"Technological advances brought about escalating costs which challenge management capacity of hospitals and other healthcare organizations. To responsibly address the issue, the public and the private sector will need to pursue a comprehensive approach that makes healthcare more efficient and responsive. Here hospitals' doors open to IT providers, increasing the growth potential of the HIS market in the country," observes Luisa Woge, Research Analyst for Frost & Sullivan's Healthcare Group.
