White Paper: Hospital Connectivity - Impact on Point of Care Testing

  • ID: 365027
  • November 2003
  • Frost & Sullivan

Cost Benefit Provides a Strong Selling Proposition for Point-of-Care Diagnostics and IT Connectivity
While the economics involved in the purchase of point-of-care test devices and provision of IT connectivity within a hospital is the biggest challenge to their uptake, it is, ironically, also their primary driver. The prospects for point-of-care test equipment appear bright as hospitals are expected to take to its significant cost advantages through elimination of laboratory nightshifts and the need to buy new central laboratory equipment. The IT connectivity segment, on the other hand, is optimistic about the future trend of hospital-wide connectivity -- irrespective of whether it is through local area network (LAN) or wireless LAN.
This Frost & Sullivan research service analyses the issues of connectivity of point-of-care and near-patient tests with an IT network in hospitals. It also studies the impact of these new technologies on the European laboratory information systems market. The research discusses various trends and opportunities in the traditionally conservative market, which is going through major changes.
