Major drivers of growth for the sector
While there are many factors that influence the healthcare asset management sector, the ones that will play a key role in its fortunes in the coming years are just two. The report pinpoints tech upgrades and innovations as one of the main factors that will underpin success in this arena in the coming times. Increasing focus on patient safety and tools to enhance this area will be another major driver of growth here. From a profitability perspective, the fall in software and hardware costs will impact bottom lines positively and contribute to revenues here, pushing growth further ahead. This will aid the sector globally. Another positive trend that is being witnessed in this sector and that can lead to some significant gains here is that more and more healthcare organizations are improving focus on staff productivity levels thus increasing efficiencies at every level.
The challenges faced by the sector
The sector also has its share of challenges that may impair steady growth though. According to the report, these factors are privacy and concerns about ethical practices, both of which are significant restrictions to growth, considering the nature of the interactions that are inherent in this area. Apart from this, healthcare is also a capital-intensive industry so the startup cash required being huge can be a big deterrent to new entrants. The decreasing dependence on human interface is both a boon and bane as it links the growth and profitability of the segment to technical prowess and efficiency.
