This IDC Health Insights study analyzes developments in the market of solutions based on computing capabilities embedded into objects, a phenomenon also known as the Internet of Things (IoT).

IDC predicts that the worldwide installed base of IoT endpoints will grow at a rate of 21.4% through 2019 to 25.6 billion endpoints with IDC expecting approximately 30 billion connections in 2020.

Internet of Things have the potential to disrupt the healthcare market, thereby an innovation accelerator and a driver of new business models. The implementation of Internet of things technologies in the healthcare sector are growing rapidly and the maturity of different use cases will increase faster than traditional technologies. Furthermore, IoT technologies and applications can be separated and isolated from other applications, making them ideal for pilot tests and further learning within the hospital and between sectors in an integrated care setting,


The U.S. healthcare provider information technology (IT) market has experienced extreme growth and change since the introduction of accountable and value-based care, following the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010. As providers seek to optimize their operations under value-based care business models, the need to rationalize storage for medical images and accommodate the growing variety and volume of unstructured content being created in new, network-based healthcare organizations (HCOs) has become acute. The growing need for management of unstructured content — whether the requirements are for traditional archives or real-time access repositories, or a combination of these capabilities — has led to increased adoption of vendor-neutral archives (VNAs) to manage DICOM files as well as a second generation of more patient-centric technology, the application-independent clinical archive (AICA). This IDC MarketScape focuses on VNA and AICA platforms that allow providers to manage and provide access to disparate types of unstructured content, among multiple departments, across the entire integrated delivery network (IDN), and between affiliated providers in the community.


IDC Health Insights is excited to launch the HealthTech Rankings! The Call for Entries has now opened and IDC Health Insights would like to welcome nominations of healthcare companies for the 2016 HealthTech Rankings. Read on for more information…


Healthcare IT services companies that are large, diversified, and deeply embedded with the largest payers and providers will enjoy competitive advantage in the near to medium term.


While IT is probably the only ones talking about the 3rd platform, key stakeholders holding company purse strings have continued their focus on productivity, performance, and outcomes as ongoing justification of internal resources remains tightly managed. While seemingly simple, operational excellence in life science R&D remains challenging as the goalposts continue to move, driven by both changing business models and rapid innovation (both scientific and technological). This is not expected to change in 2016 (and beyond), but the pace of progress is expected to greatly exceed that of times past. Agility, regulatory rigor, and ease of transition will be among the key differentiators separating the winners from the losers in 2016, driving the industry closer towards the operational maturity already present in other industries.


IDC Health Insights’ annual top 10 predictions report – IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Healthcare 2016 Predictions – provides healthcare executives with a road map for the next 36 months that prioritizes investments and identifies the areas of the business that will be affected and the relative complexity and cost of each initiative. The range of predictions provides a broad spectrum of guidance for life science companies, healthcare payers, and providers. Each of the 10 predictions includes the IT impact and guidance for action.
