Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is improvement in healthcare communication. With the introduction of integrated healthcare communications technology, administrative heads or nursing directors can access NCS data from their offices or remote computers. Using this technology, supervisors can assign staff to patients, send text messages to the staff, review report data, and view patient call activity. Other departments not associated with NCS also benefit as these systems provide remote access to NCS information.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is advances in technology. In recent years, technological innovations have resulted in the development of new and improved NCS. Initially, only analog systems were available in the market. However, with advances in technology, analog systems have been replaced by digital equipment. Also, wired systems are being replaced by wireless systems. Vendors have undertaken R&D to redesign and upgrade their NCS and enhance efficiency.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is high cost of NCS installation and maintenance. The cost of NCS installation depends on the type of rooms in healthcare facilities. The cost is also dependent on whether wired or wireless technology is used in these facilities. High cost and maintenance of these systems can hinder the adoption, which can affect market growth adversely.
