About Healthcare IT IT in the Healthcare sector is extremely useful to improve the quality and efficiency of services delivered. Though increased investments on IT systems will eventually lead to higher expenditure by patients due to the advanced technology used, healthcare providers still choose to increase their spending on IT.

Private companies are especially seen to be spending more on IT and this trend is forecast to continue in the coming years.
