IDC Health Insights recently published IDC Survey: Provider Investment Plans for Robotics. This survey presents key findings from the healthcare section of IDC’s 2017 Worldwide Robotics Survey. The goal of the survey was to assess current and future robotics adoption patterns, use cases, and application areas, as well as investment trends for robots and drones. The results focused on robotics adoption, use cases, and investment plans by U.S. healthcare providers at hospitals with 200+ beds. While the adoption of drones for healthcare utilization is minimal and expected to remain so in the near future, the use of robots in healthcare will yield increased investment in the coming years.
