Digitimes Research: Demand for smart hospitals growing fast in China
Handerson Hsieh, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Wednesday 22 November 2017]

Demand for upgrading hospitals to smart facilities is increasing fast in China where hospitals are in short supply and medical resources are unevenly distributed.

There are about 33,000 hospitals of varying sizes around China and 80% of them are in larger cities, Digitimes Research indicated. While private and government-run hospitals account for 56% and 44% of all hospitals at present, the number of private hospitals will be increasing faster from about 19,000 in 2017 to 46,000 in 2021.

In China, the smart solution supply chain generally lack an understanding of hospital operations, but local suppliers have an upper hand over foreign competitors in some fields such as hospital information system and operation-supporting system.

Taiwan-based suppliers will have advantages through combining innovative technologies such as robots and AI (artificial intelligence) with hospital management.
