MIAMI, March 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Global Health Intelligence (GHI) has just published a free whitepaper entitled 5 Mega-Trends in Latin American Healthcare that identifies massive seismic shifts that are occurring in Latin America and will impact the region’s healthcare industry.

The Miami-based company created the whitepaper by combining epidemiological and demographic research with direct, never-before-published 2017 data from HospiScope, its hospitals database for Latin America, and ShareScope, its market sizing/share service.

«The idea for the whitepaper came from the changes we saw through HospiScope and ShareScope,» says Guillaume Corpart, CEO and founder of Global Health Intelligence. «We noticed that several categories of medical equipment and devices in Latin America grew substantially in 2017, and this made us wonder what could be driving that sharp increase. After reviewing dozens of studies and consulting experts, the mega-trends became readily apparent to us and they dovetailed with what HospiScope was showing us.»

The 5 mega-trends in Latin American healthcare identified by Global Health Intelligence include:

  1. The rise of obesity and non-communicable diseases
  2. Demographic shifts impacting healthcare
  3. Connectivity closing healthcare gaps in LatAm
  4. Latin American hospitals expanding their counts of medical devices and equipment
  5. Controlling costs becoming crucial — and more challenging

«Although our market intelligence work is often focused on Latin America’s medical devices industry, we designed the whitepaper to be relevant for all kinds of healthcare professionals, including those in pharmaceuticals, public health, hospital administration and those on the front lines actually providing medical care in Latin America,» says Corpart.

GHI is offering a free download of 5 Mega-Trends in Latin American Healthcare — which offers more than 250 data points about LatAm health, medical devices, tech adoption in Latin American hospitals and cost-cutting strategies — on its website.
