With the healthcare industry in the Middle East set to grow to $71bn by 2020, the amount of data produced and gathered during this time will present a great opportunity to business leaders to develop the market even further. However, the region still faces challenges in not only how to efficiently capture the data, but how to correctly analyse and utilise the information for further improvement in patient care.
