Key Findings

•The healthcare industry has evolved over the years. Today, the focus of the healthcare business model has shifted from in-patient treatment and care to in-patient diagnosis and remote patient monitoring.
•In other words, hospitals prefer to diagnose and then decide on whether or not to retain the patient in the hospital based on the diagnosis or to treat and monitor the patient from the patient’s home.
•This model significantly reduces the patient’s time of stay in the hospital and, in turn, the hospital’s expenditure per patient. However, this kind of healthcare service delivery will not be possible without smart medical devices.
•Ultra-small, portable, and energy-efficient devices, which a patient can carry around in a pocket or wear, will enhance the remote care of patients.
•Semiconductors will play a major role in enabling these devices, taking healthcare services to the next level.
•This research update analyses the global semiconductor market in the healthcare segment for 2012. Revenue trends for 2012, revenue shares by application and geographic segment, and a market share analysis are discussed.
