7. Estimate Market Potential of Equipment in the Country
The information provided is designed to provide intelligence on hospitals in Belgium. Information provided in the spreadsheet includes details on hospital demographic, care areas, installed base of equipment, skilled resource strength, patient flow, and contact details. The spreadsheet is neither intended to provide any personal information of the patients nor provide diagnosis or treatment on diseases to the users.
The information in the report is predominantly gathered through secondary sources along with 5% of the hospital data being gathered through primary research surveys.
Secondary sources of hospital information include:
- Ministry of Health (MoH)
- Hospital website
- Official social media handles (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.)
- News aggregators
- Official press releases
- Open data sources
- Scientific research publications
- Hospitals/Doctors discovery portals
- Care area-specific associations
- Quality control reports
The publisher has attempted to provide users with the utmost accuracy in terms of hospital demographics and installed base data. However, given the dynamic nature of hospital business (including installation of medical devices, the addition of resources and capabilities), the publisher cannot guarantee the granular accuracy of the information in the HospeTrack spreadsheet.

4. HospeTrack Hospital Intelligence for Belgium, Installed Base Pivot Analysis
Provides a pivot chart to analyze data from the Installed base file. It allows users to identify and map account level statistics by care areas, type of ownership, by bed size, by the level of care, etc.
5. HospeTrack Hospital Intelligence for Belgium, IB Base File
Provides the raw data for all installed base equipment by the account in Belgium. Each hospital contains ownership type, hospital type, level of care, departments, and care services provided in the hospital, installed base counts for patient monitoring devices, critical care devices, and diagnostic imaging. The worksheet also provides hospital demographics such as bed sizes, ICU bed sizes, NICU/PICU bed sizes, Operating Room counts, Total number of physicians, specialists, etc. GPS coordinates, zip codes, in-patient volumes, out-patient volumes, and contact details of each hospital have also been provided.
The need for preventive and diagnostic facilities as well as critical care devices could shape the demand for medical devices in Belgium.
As of 2019, about 266 hospitals were functioning in Belgium. Over 70 of these hospitals demonstrate characteristics of tertiary care facilities and mostly belong to the private sector. Belgium is considered to have one of the best healthcare systems in Europe characterized by positive clinical outcomes for surgeries as well as high cancer survival rates. However, Belgium continues to navigate through a few systemic challenges including long waiting lines for diagnostic tests, issues around the treatment of mental health as well as moderately high rates of hospital acquired infections.
According to HospeTrack Hospital Intelligence for Belgium, the largest opportunity in the immediate term is likely to be around improvement of preventive and diagnostic facilities as compared to acute care services which are significantly well developed in the country. For instance, Belgium has over 200 mammography units spread across 130 hospitals. While the density of mammography units is on par with other major European countries, the coverage of breast cancer screening for women in the age-group of 50-69 years is about 63%. This is lower than the EU-15 average of 64.3% and the WHO target of about 75%. On similar lines, the Belgian health services recently procured additional MRI scanners to increase the current installed base by over 15% to cater to the growing waiting lines.
As observed with the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, several public and private hospitals in Belgium have reported a significant shortage of critical care devices including surgical and respiratory protection equipment, surgical drapes, and sterilization devices. Of the 1,900 ICU beds in Belgium, it is estimated that over 700 beds belong to secondary facilities. It is likely that such hospitals would also look to upgrade their capabilities in the coming years to counter threats of pandemics as well as the general increase in chronic diseases in the country.
A pivot from this dataset will quantitatively demonstrate a strong potential for the medical devices market in the country. For instance, Belgium has 34 PET-CT scanners to address an increasing burden of cancer (among others), especially above the age of 70 years. Such insights would enable medical equipment companies to optimize their customer segmentation and help define targeted sales and marketing strategies.
The dataset provides account-level directional estimates of total beds, ICU beds, ORs, ventilators, incubators, etc., along with Anaesthesia Machines, C-Arms, Cath Labs, PET, Nuclear, SPECT, CT, MRI scanners, Ultrasound and X-Ray machines, making it a critical source of hospital-level intelligence for medical equipment installed base in Belgium.
This dataset is a valuable tool for any organization that is in the process of optimizing sales targets, estimating market potential, or building an account management plan in Belgium.
The report is a craftily designed dataset that provides a graphical summary of the health infrastructure in the country apart from an account-level view of resources, directional information on a medical device installed base, hospital demographic, and care services. The report commits itself as a tool to understand, visualize, and identify opportunity pockets at the hospital-level for medical devices manufacturers, and digital healthcare companies.
Key medical device companies featured in the dataset include: Canon / Toshiba, Carestream, Elekta, Fresenius, GE Healthcare, Hologic, Mobius Imaging (Stryker), Philips, Siemens, and Varian.
