This IDC Health Insights study presents an analysis of the ICT spending trends and forecast in the Vietnam healthcare industry in 2010-2015. It provides a breakdown of the key areas of healthcare ICT spending and the critical issues faced by the healthcare industry in 2011, as well as the factors that will influence ICT investment decisions over the next few years. Overall, 2011 ICT spending by the healthcare sector in Vietnam is estimated to be US$16.44 million, a 10% growth on the previous year's estimate. By 2015, IDC Health Insights forecasts that the healthcare ICT spending will reach US$29.31 million.
"Vietnam's healthcare IT is at a very basic level of maturity, with most investments being in patient administrative systems and in business processes," says Sash Mukherjee, senior market analyst, IDC Health Insights, Asia/Pacific. "However, the government has recognized the role of ICT in achieving the healthcare business objectives of reducing patient overload in the hospitals, improving basic healthcare parameters, and reducing individual out-of-pocket expenses."
"Opportunities should focus on payer core administrative systems and telemedicine initiatives at the national level. Those organizations that have basic IT capabilities will look to invest in ancillary clinical information systems across various departments."
