In the wake of COVID-19, the purchase of healthcare devices has risen dramatically.
There is no doubt that the ongoing pandemic from coronavirus disease 2019, or COVID-19, has had an unprecedent effect on healthcare systems across the world, stretching care mechanisms to their breaking point. More than 3.0 million cases worldwide had been confirmed as of April 29, with over 76,000 new cases being logged daily. The impact on healthcare resources is evident: Quite simply, the world cannot cope.
The Healthcare Technology team at Omdia has reviewed several of the core medical device markets to understand how the pandemic is changing purchasing and affecting demand at a time of critical decision-making. The team’s expertise has been garnered to provide an update on the key medical imaging and clinical care markets to serve as a guide for the healthcare industry during a time of uncertainty.
While this article provides an overview of the imaging and clinical care device markets, Omdia has provided additional discussion and focused product insights. Also available are previous Omdia insights on ultrasound, imaging, ventilators, AI in imaging (CT), MDR, and HCIT/digital health.
