Report Scope

As indicated above, medical automation is closely related to healthcare IT, which is the subject of a companion BCC Research report, HLC048D Healthcare Information Technology. However, for the purposes of this report, medical automation technologies are defined as technologies for the electromechanical control or operation of diagnostic or therapeutic processes or systems or training of healthcare professionals, and which result in a reduced need or eliminate the need for human intervention. Examples of such medical automation technologies are:

  • Automated health assessment and monitoring technologies.
  • Automated medical imaging and image analysis.
  • Automated prescription fulfillment devices.
  • Automated therapeutic (nonsurgical) devices.
  • Robotic and computer-assisted surgical equipment.
  • Automated laboratory testing and analysis.
  • Automated healthcare logistics, resource and patient tracking.
  • Automated medical training.

The study format includes the following major elements:

  • Executive summary.
  • Definitions.
  • Medical automation technologies and applications.
  • Enabling technologies.
  • End-user segments.
  • Market environment (legal and regulatory, standards, economic conditions, consumer attitudes).
  • Baseline (2014) and projected market for medical automation technologies and products through 2020.
