According to data from Strategy & PwC's strategic
consultancy, the health sector is one of the most investing in technology and
innovation in the industry, with growth of 5.9 percent in research and
development investment in the last year, surpassing the general average growth,
which was 3.2 percent. By 2018, the health sector is expected to achieve the
lead in investing in innovation. The data are part of a survey conducted with
the 1,000 companies that invest the most in research and development in the
CLICK TO TWEET: Both new and old hospitals will have to adapt to the new technologies, to be prepared for the future. CommScope's Cristiano Gusmão explains in this blog.
In the United States alone, investments in information
technology in the health sector were $7.1 billion last year, according to a
study released by Healthcare Growth Partners. To get an idea of this growth
rate, in 2013, the volume of investments in the health sector was United States
$2.8 billion a year.
With the industry's high level of competitiveness and
growing demand for network infrastructure, hospitals need to have solutions
that combine efficiency, high productivity and optimal security, such as a
high-performance network cabling system. CommScope's networking solutions have
already helped hundreds of healthcare institutions around the world generate
significant cost savings with efficiency and performance in areas requiring
bandwidth, such as data center, image transmission, video surveillance, access
control and voice and video communications over a single advanced IP
infrastructure network, among others.
CommScope is at the forefront of network infrastructure
solutions in healthcare. Our long history, expertise and innovation in network
infrastructure - broadband, corporate and wireless - allows us to have a unique
perspective to solve the most complex challenges of our customers, particularly
in critical environments, explains the name of the executive and position in
It is clear that technology transforms the health segment
and hospitals need to be connected to the advances of the market. We believe
that within a maximum of five years, both new and old hospitals will have to
adapt to the new technologies, to be prepared for the future.
Hospitals are complex institutions, dealing with a large
volume of patients every day and extremely sensitive data. Therefore, it is
imperative that they implant technology that responds with agility and
precision to their needs, such as the transmission of high-speed exams. The
average transmission time of an MRI scan, for example, that using Category 6 at
1Gbps cable is 2 minutes and 40 seconds, drops to only 17 seconds with the use
of a Category 6A at 10Gbps cable.
In the so-called Digital Hospital, the adoption of
technology offers a competitive differential necessary for the institution to
guarantee its space in the market. This innovation provides information
mobility, sharing and collaboration among medical staff and management, as well
as connecting the institution's network of partners (which includes outsourced
employees and suppliers) and providing new business opportunities in the
