In a new survey conducted in collaboration with Oxford Economics, SAP has revealed that nearly 70% of healthcare companies are looking digitise their operations in order to facilitate growth.  

The study included almost 400 global C-level healthcare executives, designed to track the value of technologies in driving the digital transformations in healthcare firms.

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.
