The report found that the majority of healthcare firms are currently making the transition to the digital economy. 76% of respondents revealed that they are planning to invest in big data and analytics in the next two years, whilst 65% are looking to spend on cloud technologies.

“Digital innovation will fuel the next wave of breakthroughs in healthcare and accelerate the broader shift toward data-driven care for health organizations,” SAP Health Global President Thomas Laur said. “Unlocking actionable data insights in real time is critical for the future success for value-based care.”

The study reveals that 61% of healthcare firms are expecting to see an increase in customer satisfaction as a result of digitisation, with 59% expecting a significant impact in innovation.

Whilst just 2% of firms in the healthcare sector having successfully completed digital transformations, more than half are looking to do so, currently either testing or piloting programs.
