4. Installed Base Pivot Analysis

Provides a pivot chart to analyse data from the Installed base file. Allows users to identify and map account level statistics by care areas, type of ownership, by bed size, by level of care etc.

5. Installed Base File

Provides the raw data for all installed base equipment by account in Ghana. Each hospital contains ownership type, hospital type, level of care, departments and care services provided in the hospital, installed base counts for patient monitoring devices, critical care devices and diagnostic imaging. Worksheet also provides hospital demographics such as bed sizes, ICU bed sizes, NICU/PICU bed sizes, Operating Room counts, Total number pf physicians, specialists etc. GPS coordinates, zip codes, in-patient volumes, out-patient volumes and contact details of each hospital have also been provided.


As of 2019, about 327 hospitals and 29 diagnostic imaging centers were functioning in Ghana. Around 50% of the hospitals in the country currently only provide secondary level care services. While Ghana continues to expand its National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) to cover a comprehensive package of disease treatments and diagnostics, its focus on expanding medical equipment infrastructure and healthcare logistics is expected to steadily increase. There has also been increasing focus on improving the percentage GDP being spent on healthcare from the current 4.5% to 15% set by the 2001 Abuja Declaration.

According to this new HospeTrack Hospital Intelligence for Ghana, the largest opportunity for medical device sales in the immediate term could be represented by the current pool of 154 secondary care hospitals. The Government has put in place multiple investment programs that aim to improve care services in the Public District and Public Regional Hospitals. Currently, more than 60% of the 465 ICU beds are held by only 10 tertiary care hospitals. This dichotomy in care distribution is one of the key issues Ghana is likely to focus efforts on in the next few years.

Investment in health infrastructure build-up was positive until 4-5 years back. Almost 500 Operating Rooms now span across the 368 hospitals in the country. However, this initial build-up will now need a second wave of commitment, to improve on the required medical equipment to run the ORs effectively. Less than 200 anaesthesia machines and about 50 C-arms are currently servicing these ORs – numbers that require immediate attention towards medical equipment procurement.

This new database is the first of its kind for Ghana, showing in-depth details of such opportunity areas for the growth of medical equipment and other health infrastructure.

The report provides account-level directional detail on total beds, ICU beds, ORs, ventilators, incubators, etc., along with Anaesthesia Machines, C-Arms, Cath Labs, PET, Nuclear, SPECT, CT, MRI scanners, Ultrasound and X-Ray machines, making it the only source of hospital-level intelligence for medical equipment installed base in Ghana. This dataset is a valuable tool for any organization that is in the process of optimizing sales targets, estimating market potential or building an account management plan in Ghana.

The report is a craftily designed dataset that provides a graphical summary of the health infrastructure in the country apart from an account-level view of resources, directional information on a medical device installed base, hospital demographic and care services. The report commits itself as a tool to understand, visualize, and identify opportunity pockets at the hospital-level for medical devices manufacturers, and digital healthcare companies.
