Map the Canadian Healthcare IT Market with the New HIMSS Analytics Canadian Database(SM)

This new database from HIMSS Analytics provides a roadmap to the decision makers and opportunities in the Canadian health IT market

CHICAGO, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Understanding the Canadian health information technology market demands access to credible and current information, data available in the just-released HIMSS Analytics Canadian Database. HIMSS Analytics, known for its research and data collection efforts on hospitals and health systems throughout the United States, introduced the new Web-based database to expand industry knowledge about the Canadian healthcare IT market.

"This new database provides extensive and strategic information about the Canadian healthcare IT market," said Dave Garets, president/CEO of HIMSS Analytics. "It is an interactive tool that is constantly updated so that providers, vendors or anyone interested in this market can understand and stay on top of market trends."

Reported at the hospital and Regional Health Authority levels, the information in the database includes market share data for more than 130 software applications and technologies. The key contact information appears at the hospital, Regional Health Authority, or provincial levels. Market segmentation, sizing statistics, and software and hardware purchasing plan information also offer users additional data relevant to understanding and working in the Canadian market.

The comprehensive new HIMSS Analytics Canadian Database simplifies the search for relevant data with several interactive tools, including:

-- Standard downloadable reports help users understand market share, purchasing plans, and outsourcing, consulting and sales opportunities. The reports provide an extensive review of the marketing including PACS, ambulatory and wireless data.

-- Search capabilities let users evaluate the current IT environment of facilities or healthcare systems in the database with data downloadable in a PDF or HTML format.

-- An ad hoc query/report writer function simplifies user-defined queries with details downloadable to a spreadsheet format.

-- Ongoing customer support provided to every user.

HIMSS Analytics collected IT-related information for Canadian hospitals, data similar to what has been collected on U.S. hospitals and now populates the HIMSS Analytics Database (derived from the Dorenfest IHDS+ Database(TM)). Technology adoption in Canadian healthcare organizations is tracked by collecting information on hospital demographics, use and implementation of IT products and services, and buying trends in software and hardware applications.

Used to compare Canadian hospitals among themselves, the data also compares these hospitals to U.S. hospital peers using the HIMSS Analytics Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model or EMRAM. This unique tool objectively measures a healthcare organization's progress toward electronic patient record implementation.
