Healthcare is a focus vertical for the Kiosk industry
It is always pleasing when industry experts ratify your company’s strategy. According to Sandy Nix, CEO of Connected Technology Solutions (CTS) in a recent interview (reported at Kiosk Marketplace HERE) Healthcare is rapidly become a key focus vertical for the kiosk industry. CTS are one of the largest manufacturers of kiosks in North America and understand the market as well as anybody.
So – how has Healthcare become the focus vertical?
In short, because the Healthcare industry has such huge potential for purchasing kiosks over the next few years. Whilst many industries are deploying kiosks already, Healthcare is late to the game. It is an industry that represents an astonishing 18% of GDP in America (11% in Canada – both numbers from the World Bank here) and yet, there is very little use of automated kiosks today. Furthermore, given the recession, every hospital and health centre we talk to is looking to reduce admin costs and to focus resources on the actual provision of healthcare. Registration kiosks in particular are a great way to do that.
So – Healthcare is a huge industry with low penetration of kiosks, but a large desire and few purchasing options. At PatientWay, we are here to solve this problem – if you are a hospital or a health centre that is considering any type of kiosks we would love to hear from you!
