Target the fastest growing and most profitable ICT areas in the healthcare sector using this report's analysis of key purchasing trends, drivers, vendor profiles and market forecasts.

The answers to your questions...

- What are the spending plans of European and US healthcare organisations between 2005 and 2010?

- What regulatory and geo-political pressures are driving or inhibiting ICT growth in healthcare?

- How can vendors tailor their approach to selling ICT solutions and services to healthcare organisations?

- Why will ERP solutions outstrip the growth in other healthcare sectors over the next few years?

- How will demand for underlying ICT infrastructure in healthcare effect demand for specific applications?

Examining the Key Issues

- Business model change. The traditional healthcare model is changing significantly driven by an aging population, funding constraints, greater demand for care and a greater awareness of medical errors. The industry will increasingly turn to ICT to meet these challenges.

- Local and central government healthcare ICT programs are being instigated in the US and the EU in Europe. These will provide infrastructure as well as individual programs to provide specific applications to make use of this infrastructure.

- Customer-facing applications such as Electronic Patient Records, 'eBooking' and data applications are driving demand in the CRM market in healthcare.

- Marketing focus. Buyers in healthcare institutions have a clinical background and often no experience of other types of work. The benefits provided by ICT must be made clear.

- Return on investment. Buyers in healthcare are more skeptical than in other markets and there is a need for a clear business case and demonstrable ROI from cost savings.
