Digitizing Hospitals is Not an Option, It is a Matter of Time

Frost & Sullivan will host a live briefing on Tuesday, September 30, at 3:00 PM EDT to provide industry participants an overview of a recently published study focused on digitizing processes in healthcare institutions.

The health care supply chain as a whole - from hospitals, to manufactures and distributors - is under extreme pressure to reduce costs and enhance efficiency. Digitizing hospitals' infrastructure became a challenge to streamline management and strength overall competitiveness of such institutions. Highlights of this briefing include analyses of: technological trends, discussion on digitizing processes, barriers to innovation, and dimension of expected digital benefits.

This briefing is based upon ongoing Healthcare analysis and it will benefit market participants, companies interested in participating in digital devices and software markets, hospital managers, and health insurance companies by discussing emerging trends and providing forward projections for the digitizing process in hospitals.

"The capabilities of digitization are not limited to the development of individual systems. They can be extended to the level of free-flow of communication within hospitals' departments and even ensure integration with other healthcare institutions," observes Luisa Woge, Research Analyst for Frost & Sullivan's Healthcare Group.

Frost & Sullivan will hold this live briefing at 2:00 PM CDT / 3:00 PM EDT on Tuesday, September 30, 2008, which will provide industry participants an outlook on digitizing processes in healthcare institutions.
