LONDON, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- just published a new market research report:

Asia/Pacific Healthcare 2014 Top 10 Predictions: The Journey to Sustainability

This IDC Health Insights top 10 predictions study identifies major trends that will impact the Asia/Pacific healthcare IT landscape in 2014. The study provides an analysis of market dynamics and trends affecting the acquisition, implementation, and use of technology by healthcare providers for the delivery and management of care both within the hospitals, as well as through the care continuum. It also seeks to address key issues, drivers, and challenges that healthcare executives must address as they perform their role, especially around strategic planning, IT investment decision making, and technology project delivery.

"The healthcare industry is at a disruptive stage globally. All countries around the world are facing new challenges around sustainability and accountability of their healthcare systems, at more or less the same time. While legacy systems and prior IT investments may prove to be large obstacles for mature economies, the slow development in emerging markets and the availability of newer technologies may well open up a shortcut for those countries to eventually achieve their own goals on sustainability and accountability," says Sash Mukherjee, research manager, IDC Health Insights, Asia/Pacific. "Healthcare IT executives are becoming increasingly interested in adopting newer technologies. Mobility will be the key technology in the region, with a high adoption rate of smartphones and tablets. Cloud technologies will provide the essential infrastructure required for access of on-demand healthcare data at point-of-care. Analytics and Big Data technologies will provide the real-time views, as well as the deep insights required to create a sustainable system, as it moves from a reactive to a prescriptive phase."
