Organizations successfully competing in today's healthcare market must consistently review their product and service portfolio to drive value for their partners and clients. Particularly for those companies in the medical technologies space, they must work to outline interweaved opportunities between several key segments, including medical devices, patient monitoring and medical imaging, to discover how they are and can work together. The Frost & Sullivan compendium addresses these vital markets, delineating research that casts light on these shadowy, crossover areas to reveal underlying opportunities.
"Stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem need to track and benchmark business performance across their core products and solutions portfolios," said Frost & Sullivan Advanced Medical Technologies Global Program Leader Siddharth Saha. "Concurrently, original equipment manufacturer's (OEM's), suppliers and distributors cannot afford to ignore developments in diagnostics, therapeutics and monitoring that can positively or negatively influence the adoption of their core solution."
Frost & Sullivan finds that healthcare solution and service suppliers are increasingly looking to absorb niche technologies into their overall plan. Optimum healthcare delivery must absorb equipment, devices, materials and service lines with the end goal of enhancing outcomes for patients, caregivers and provider organizations in healthcare. This creates implications for product and solution areas, as well as care locations.
"In pursuing their growth objectives, healthcare stakeholders are looking beyond their core customer and target verticals, and actively assessing new geographic markets to open up dialog with complementary solution providers," said Saha. "Synergies in portfolio and business strategies can yield much needed return as suppliers look beyond saturated markets. Tracking the new needs of the ultimate end user in the care pathway, while also understanding the decision making structure, helps make a smoother transition to new business realities."
