European Hospital Administrative Systems Markets

Description:    System Vendors Must Have Effective Sales and Deployment Strategies in Place

                Across Europe, key decision-makers and stakeholders in the healthcare industry are realising the
                importance of advanced IT solutions as integrated care increasingly becomes the order of the day.
                Healthcare organisations are keen to upgrade legacy systems to new and sophisticated ones,
                creating numerous opportunities for system vendors. However, vendors need to be prepared with
                strong sales and deployment strategies to tackle the portfolio of contracts brought by such
                opportunities. Deployment sequence is particularly important since hospitals cannot implement
                clinical systems such as full electronic medical records (EMR) and picture archiving and
                communications systems (PACS) without having a modern administrative system in place. While
                this challenge will continue to affect industry participants for the next three to four years, its impact
                is expected to reduce with growing consolidation and the installation of more systems.

                This Frost & Sullivan research service evaluates the business potential of the European hospital
                administrative systems market. It focuses on the opportunities available in seven major European
                markets, taking into account the unique industry challenges and market drivers prevalent in each
                region. The study provides strategic recommendations to capitalise on these opportunities and also
                critically examines the competitive structure of each of the seven major markets.

                Replacement of Outdated Legacy Systems Creates Opportunities

                Legacy administrative systems offer limited functionality, low levels of integration and
                interoperability with clinical applications. As hospitals move towards installing modern clinical
                systems, they are finding it difficult to integrate them with the legacy administrative systems. This
                is likely to be one of the biggest factors driving the replacement of outdated systems with
                integrated systems that combine administrative modules and clinical information systems. The
                result is a hospital information systems (HIS) platform that supports clinical functions as well as
                business processes by assimilating the information captured by both.

                "Hospitals and vendors alike are beginning to recognise the actual business benefits that the sum of
                the functions of modern administrative and clinical systems can bring to healthcare organisations,"
                notes the analyst of this research service. "Although patients, doctors and the general public are
                likely to be impressed with EMR, PACS and other clinical modules, investment in back-office
                administrative applications can offer hospitals real competitive advantage."

                Steady Market Growth Projected

                Frost & Sullivan’s research analysis reveals that the European hospital administrative systems
                market was worth $1338.9 million in 2004. It is expected to grow at a compound annual growth
                rate (CAGR) of 7.5 per cent to reach $2069.0 million by 2010, primarily due to the active
                implementation of HIS in major European markets such as the United Kingdom, Germany and
                France. Pioneering initiatives such as the National Health Service’s (NHS) Connecting for Health
                (CfH) programme in the United Kingdom and the eHealth programme proposed by the European
                Union (EU) are also helping drive market growth.

                However, new projects carry with them a host of technical and financial challenges. "As traditional
                legacy systems continue to be replaced with new ones that address more issues and business
                processes more effectively, vendors will need to demonstrate significant cost-containment
                advantages combined with the need for greater efficiencies," says the analyst. "This will help
                promote market growth further."
