Brazilian Chief Information Officers of Healthcare plan to boost IoT

Brazilian Chief Information

According to research, an increase in the investments around the technologies of Internet of Things (IoT) is being expected for the coming two years in health care in Brazil regardless of the challenges that are faced by the sector.

The study which was carried out by the Frost & Sullivan in collaboration with the Brazilian Association Health CIO (ABCIS) said that there was an increasing interest in Information of Technology as a means for enhancing the clinical decision making between the technologies heads in the hospitals of the country and the other service providers of health care.

Presently, only about eight percent of the chief information officers (CIOs) of health care that have been reported IoT technologies are at place in their organizations. However, seventy percent of those polled intend to introduce the technologies in their portfolios in the coming two years.

However, there are several challenges involved. Regardless of the clear advantages which technology innovation is able to provide in health care, the Frost study has suggested that the CIOs in their sector struggle with very tight budgets.

Almost fifty-eight percent of the CIOs in organizations of healthcare in Brazil manage budgets that range between 250,000 to almost 1 million reais (63,000 dollars to 252,000 dollars), having the operating expenses being mostly greater than the capital expenditure.

About half of the participants of the study (47 percent) have reported that the insufficient budget is one of their biggest hurdle in the path of innovation, though almost eighty percent of them hope that their budgets will increase.

The study also mentioned some technical difficulties that were related to areas like digitization, system interoperability, and the adoption of electronic patient record platforms.

The study mentioned 101 chief information officers throughout Brazil.
