The health care industry is fundamentally different when compared to the retail and manufacturing industries. Compliance with rules and regulations regarding safety of medical instruments and pharmaceutical drugs is of utmost importance in the industry. Asset management solutions help these end-users to validate their regulatory compliance, reduce inventory, optimize supply chain, improve productivity of staff, and increase the quality of patient care.
The global health care asset management market is driven by improved return on investment (ROI), higher productivity, and patient satisfaction. Majority of hospitals are currently adopting location tracking asset management solutions for better management of inventory and staff. This rise in adoption rate coupled with significant technological advancements is likely to fuel the growth of the global health care asset management market during the forecast period. However, hidden costs related to maintenance of these systems and issues related to safety of databases are likely to restrain the global health care asset management market from 2018 to 2026.
