Western Europe, Healthcare Sector, IT Spending Forecast Update, 2007-2011

Western European healthcare sector modernization will generate a growth in IT investment from $9 billion in 2006 to $12 billion in 2011.

In this study, Health Industry Insights provides an overview of IT spending trends and forecasts in the Western European healthcare sector. On the qualitative side, the report analyzes IT adoption trends in the sector and describes major drivers and inhibitors of IT adoption. On the quantitative side, focus is on spending in hardware, packaged software, and IT services for the major European countries (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the U.K.) between 2006 and 2011; IT spending is provided for two subindustries: private healthcare providers versus public healthcare providers. For the first time, this study also provides a breakdown, only for total Western Europe, of IT spending between hospitals (NACE classification code 85.11) and other primary and community care providers (NACE classification code 85.12, 85.13, 85.14 and 85.3).

"There is a fundamental truth to the use of ICT in healthcare generally; it is a catalyst that enables meaningful changes in the way and place care is delivered. Governments and providers alike are committed to improving the quality of care and patient safety but are pointedly focused on spending healthcare funds in the most beneficial way possible. However, today's ICT solutions are not single-purpose, nor do they exist in isolation. Interoperability and interdependence are inevitable. It is absolutely essential for suppliers to the healthcare market to partner with other suppliers,"said Jan Duffy, EMEA Research Manager, IDC Health Industry Insights.
