The UAE is leading the Middle East and Africa’s smart hospitals market reaching a record-high of USD 2.1 billion by 2023, industry experts announced during Arab Health in Dubai, running from 27-30 January.
Across the region, smart hospitals are rapidly adopting modern health management information systems, digital healthcare records, and connected medical devices. As a result, the Middle East and Africa’s smart hospitals market is growing at 13 percent CAGR to 2023, according to a report by Kenneth Research.
The UAE’s leadership in the region’s smart hospitals market shows how smart hospitals and connected healthcare is optimizing costs, efficiency, and patient experiences, argues Condo Protego, the UAE-based IT infrastructure and information management consultancy and solutions provider.
“The Middle East and Africa’s fast-growing smart hospitals market shows that healthcare providers are driving technology innovation,” said Savitha Bhaskar, COO, Condo Protego. “Healthcare providers and smart hospitals need to ensure that technology solutions meet both business and patient care goals.”
Supporting the digital transformation of healthcare, the UAE government recently passed Federal Law Number 2 of 2019 to centralize and protect healthcare data.
“The UAE shows how smart hospitals and information management can make healthcare providers more secure, efficient, and cost-effective, and enhancing patient loyalty with more effective care,” added Savitha Bhaskar. “Connected healthcare is key to integrating providers, patients, and insurance companies.”
In the region, Condo Protego is integrating health management information systems, running on Dell Technologies and VMware information management solutions, for many of the largest and most innovative hospitals and insurance companies.
