Healthcare Automation Statistics in 2023

Healthcare Automation

80% of hospitals will be using at least some form of healthcare automation (up from 60% in 2020)

An automated digital ecosystem infrastructure is critical to the success of healthcare automation.

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the 2021-2030 National Health Expenditure (NHE) report. They stated that national health spending is expected to reach nearly $6.8 trillion by 2030, so how much should be spent on automation?

Striking the balance of increased efficiency, data, cost, and quality is healthcare’s automation challenge. Healthcare providers are expecting a growing number of patients and an increase in the complexity of care, so they are turning to healthcare automation to help meet these demands.

With this rapidly growing field expecting to have a significant impact on the healthcare industry, it’s essential to monitor some statistics that will be relevant in 2023:
