New report: Benelux Healthcare IT Costs 2009-2011
Large healthcare companies’ budgets & forecasts
The economic recession has squeezed many companies in the Benelux healthcare sector between the pressures of reducing costs and an unchanged or even higher level of demand for their services. It is clear that information technology could have an important role in solving this dilemma. While there are many signs that the end of the economic recession is in sight, it is still far from apparent how fast the economy will recover and how strong the rebound will be. Also, the risk that the economy will start to go into reverse again is still present. In light of this, it is interesting to look at the current state of IT spending in Benelux healthcare companies’ and how the spending is expected to develop during the next two years.
Waagstein Research’s report Benelux Healthcare IT Costs 2009-2011 maps out both current IT costs in Benelux healthcare companies as well as the trends.
