Healthcare Leaders' 2022 Digital Agenda: Middle East Perspective
Healthcare institutions in the Middle East, which faced a great deal of pressure during the COVID-19 crisis, are expanding their resiliency initiatives to prepare for future business disruptions. This IDC Survey presentation provides a fresh view of the business and ICT market outlook for the region's healthcare sector. IDC's Middle East Digital Transformation CIO Survey, conducted in December 2021 and January 2022, sought CIO perspectives on ICT spending plans in 2022–2023, IT investments, technology focus areas, digital transformation strategies, and investments trends.
“More than half of healthcare institutions in the Middle East face challenges in implementing innovation at the speed and scale their digital transformation journeys require. We foresee an increasing need to prioritize investments in IT services management, boost the automation of IT processes, and enhance software engineering and development to support business resiliency and expansion.” — Senior Research Analyst Farida Rehab, IDC Data and Analytics
