Brazil is the seventh largest economy in the world, representing 55% of South America’s GDP. It is considered the economic engine of South as it continues to bring millions of Brazilian into the middle class raising the per capita disposable income. At the same time Brazilians are avid users of connected devices and have become the biggest users of social media in the world. The country has one of the world’s largest and fastest growing healthcare markets, investing nearly 9% of its GDP annually in health care services, products and technology solutions.
Soaring treatment costs, a growing rate of chronic disease, universal coverage and quality care improvement policies are driving demand for greater healthcare efficiency and productivity. Health policymakers, administrators, industry stakeholders and practitioners are looking to health IT as part of the solution. The Brazilian public is also demanding e-health solutions as part of the health care offering. According to an Accenture study, 90 percent of Brazilians believe e-health resources are important while 70% would consider opting for a health care provider that offers EHR/PHR solutions.
