For instance, in October 2020, Siemens Healthineers partnered with Imbio, a healthcare technology company, to expand access to Imbio AI algorithms worldwide. As a result of this partnership, physicians would now be able to apply Imbio's automated AI for quantitative image analysis directly through the Open Apps interface on Siemens syngo.via platform.
Global Smart Hospitals Market - Impact of Coronavirus (COVID – 19) Pandemic
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is expected to drive the growth of the global smart hospitals market over the forecast period.
COVID-19 outbreak was first reported on December 31, 2019 in Wuhan, China. According to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Weekly Epidemiological Update by the World Health Organization, over 146 million cases and 3.1 million deaths due to coronavirus (COVID-19) were reported up till April 25, 2021 across the globe.
In order to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, market players are launching various Medicare management services and patient engagement technologies to provide best healthcare services and limit the spread of coronavirus. For instance, in August 2020, Zyter, a leading digital health and IoT-enablement platform, announced the launch of Zyter COVID-19 Suite, a suite consisting of four integrated digital screening, thermal imaging, contact tracing, and monitoring tools to help organizations keep personnel safe from spreading the COVID-19 virus in their work environment. Furthermore, in December 2020, Zyter, a leading digital health and IoT-enablement platform, announced the launch of Zyter Virtual Rounding, a virtual cloud based telehealth solution, where the healthcare professional can conduct virtual hospital rounds and address various patients which are quarantined due to COVID-19 infections.
Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic is driving the demand for telemedicine in healthcare facilities due to the need of maintaining social distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19 infection globally. Therefore various healthcare facilities are adopting various smart technologies to interact with patients and avoid close contact with individuals to reduce the spread of COVID-19 infections. For instance, in 2020, UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital, U.S. has initiated the use of Pointr’s Deep Location technology, which allows the patients to book their appointments online and guide patients away from quarantine areas, allow them to tell doctors if they will be late and notify staff when they arrive using location-based notifications, powered by geofencing technology.
Market players and healthcare organizations are collaborating to build smart hospitals. For instance, in May 2020, Capsule Technologies, Inc. collaborated with Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS), U.S., to deploy Capsule’s Ventilated Patient Surveillance (VPS) workstation to provide safe and effective patient care to its COVID-19 ventilated patients. Similarly, in April 2020, Aden Group, an integrated facility management (IFM) company announced that along with Dassault Systèmes, a company operating in collaborative 3D virtual environments, will develop and launch AKILA Care, a modular smart hospital.

The increasing adoption of technologies such as artificial intelligence in the detection of the chronic diseases such as cancers is expected to drive the global smart hospital market growth. According to the data findings published in the European Association of Urology congress in Copenhagen in March 2018, Chinese scientist and clinicians have developed a learning artificial intelligence system which can diagnose and identify cancerous prostate samples as accurately as any pathologist. Moreover, the software can accurately classify the level of malignancy of the cancer, thereby eliminating the variability which can slow down diagnosis in patients.
Various healthcare facilities are focusing on converting into smart hospitals to provide high quality medical services which is expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in January 2020, West China Second University Hospital, affiliated to Sichuan University, China, launched 5G medical private network, purpose built-in hospitals enhanced with mobile edge computing (MEC) devices which provides full integration among cloud, networks, and services. The 5G medical private network provides low latency, high data rates, and massive connectivity for personalized network services in hospitals.
