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.
South African medical device market to be driven by the demand for neonatal care and radiology equipment
As of 2021-22, South Africa has 368 public healthcare facilities, with the remaining being part of the private sector. The National Health Insurance scheme was started by the government to improve the quality of public healthcare and increase the healthcare budget. For instance, a budget of USD 1.44 billion was allocated towards eliminating HIV, AIDS, and Tuberculosis, and improving Maternal and Child Health. The National Development Plan was adopted by the country as its vision for 2030, aiming to increase life expectancy to 70 years, and dealing with health challenges including maternal and child mortality, and non-communicable diseases.
South Africa’s three Millennium Developmental Goals (MDG) are aimed at reducing child mortality, improving maternal health, and combating diseases such as tuberculosis. The implementation of these goals resulted in an increase in the number of antenatal care visits as well as the number of deliveries performed by a skilled healthcare attendant. However, despite sustained efforts by the government to improve the healthcare infrastructure, South Africa continues to face accessibility issues as well as long waiting times for diagnosis and treatment. As a result, the country suffers from high disease burdens, with around 58,000 mortalities annually, owing to tuberculosis. Inadequate access to critical healthcare services places newborns at a high risk of complications leading to morbidity and mortality. The neonatal mortality in South Africa is estimated to be about 10.6 per 1,000 live births. With enhanced healthcare infrastructure especially in the public healthcare sector, a significant proportion of the deaths could potentially be avoided.
According to EMeRG’s new HospeTrack Hospital Intelligence for South Africa, the current pool of market opportunities in the immediate term can be represented by secondary healthcare facilities for radiography and neonatal care equipment. Around 14% of newborns in South Africa have low birth weight; higher than several other African countries. In addition, respiratory and cardiovascular disorders account for the leading causes of neonatal mortality in the country. With a single-digit penetration for incubators, infant ventilators, and radiant warmers at public level 1 and level 2 care hospitals, a market opportunity seems favorable in this segment for medical device manufacturers.
The latest National Strategic Plan aims to increase efforts in the regions that have the highest prevalence of TB. Possible efforts include screening more patients using chest X-ray systems. The introduction of mobile X-ray systems is favorable, especially in rural areas due to the elimination of travel costs of patients. On similar lines, lung cancer ranks as the primary cause of cancer deaths in the country, thus demonstrating a need for CT based lung cancer screening initiatives. As per HospeTrack, there are 200+ CT scanners in South Africa.
The report provides account-level directional detail on total beds, ICU beds, ORs, ventilators, incubators, and other medical equipment installed in South Africa, as well as Anesthesia Machines, Dialysis machines, C-Arms, Cath Labs, PET, SPECT, CT, MRI scanners, Ultrasound, and X-Ray machines, and Mammography machines making it the only source of hospital-level intelligence for South Africa’s medical equipment installed base.
The report is a skillfully designed dataset that is an optimal resource for any organization in the process of optimizing sales targets, estimating market potential, or developing an account management strategy in South Africa. It provides a graphical overview of the country’s health infrastructure, and a hospital-level view of resources, directional information on the medical device installed base, hospital demographics, and care services.
