Healthcare IT is Growing: Why You Should Consider Outsourcing

The need for strong IT is made more than clear in a recent report by Research and Markets, which states that the global healthcare IT market poised to grow at a compound annual growth rate of seven percent, representing a total growth to $56.7 billion by 2017. This positive momentum is being driven by a mix of increased awareness of wireless health delivery by medical health professionals, the need to combat increasing healthcare expenditure and today’s influx of technological advances in the field. 

Between private practices, major hospitals, assisted living facilities, recovery centers and more, the need for IT support is great. Whether it’s connecting to patients via a real-time communication network, transmitting medical information (health records and patient data) through real-time signals or patient monitoring, there is an indisputable need for strong IT support in this sector. This fact is more than evident. How IT support is delivered, however, is still up for debate.

One quickly growing option for IT management is to outsource it to a third-party vendor. Research has similarly been showing the growth and benefits of outsourcing IT support. In fact, according to Gartner, the worldwide market for managed IT services is expected to reach $288 billion this year, representing a 2.8 percent increase from this time last year.

Companies that outsource their IT support quickly realize a plethora of competitive advantages and benefits, including improved efficiency, reduced downtime, custom dashboards and receiving 24x7 support from a group of long-time, seasoned experts in the space.
