Research and Markets: The Healthcare ICT Market in the MENA Region to Grow At A CAGR Of 8.17 Percent over the Period 2012-2016

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/j3lrkm/healthcare_ict) has announced the addition of the "Healthcare ICT Market in the MENA Region 2012-2016" report to their offering.

One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is increase in governmental support. The Healthcare ICT market in the MENA region has also been witnessing consolidation of the market. However, the lack of standardization could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are CareFusion Corp., Cerner Corp., Carestream Health Inc., and Philips Healthcare.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are GE Healthcare Ltd., Siemens (News - Alert) Healthcare, Computer Sciences Corp., InterSystems Corp., Fujifilm Holdings Corp., Sectra AB, ICT Health Technology Services, Pulse System Inc., Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences, 3M (News - Alert) Health Information Systems Inc., and Toshiba Medical Systems Corp.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's IT Services team said: 'Currently, the adoption of telemedicine is a growing trend in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. It is an essential solution to eliminate geographical barriers and increase access to medical services in distant and rural parts of Africa. The introduction of telemedicine in remote clinics facilitates the availability of medical expertise through physicians located in distant regions, as they can hear and see the condition of patients and respond to them. The two areas that are the most suitable for the adoption of telemedicine are ophthalmology and radiology. Moreover, as a result of the increasing adoption of broadband services across the MENA region, bandwidth should no longer be a hindrance for the development of telemedicine.'

According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the increase in governmental support in many countries. The governments of different countries in the MENA region are trying to achieve cohesive healthcare delivery structures to improve the overall quality of patient care. The various initiatives taken by these governments include providing policy incentives, establishing high-tech zones, and providing development funding.
