The Report “Hybrid Operating Rooms Market By Application (Therapeutic, Cardiovascular Or, Neurosurgery, Thoracic Surgery, Biopsy, Orthopedic Surgeries, Laparoscopic, Fluoroscopy) Devices (Operating Tables, Room Lights, Surgical Booms) Industry Overview, Forecast 2015”
“Hybrid Operating Rooms Market will see exponential growth as it enables hospitals to reduce costs and focus on improving services, meeting client needs and requirements, fulfilling mandates of governments and increasing efficiency and effectiveness of hospital functions.”
Governments across countries are increasingly focusing on making healthcare more affordable. They are mandating that hospitals cut down on costs, make their services more efficient and make healthcare more affordable for people. Even in developing countries, the trends are changing, and as awareness increases, people are demanding better services and state of the art equipment and facilities. While most hospitals in developed countries are already equipped with latest technologies, the demand from emerging markets is expected to increase substantially.
Healthcare is a priority market and spiralling costs have been a major cause for concern. With changing lifestyles and longer life spans, the demand on management of diseases is huge. In addition, surgeries that help the quality of life and can enable patients to lead longer and better lives are also on the rise. However setting up of hybrid operation rooms is expensive and capital intensive. Hospitals cannot look at short term crunches when making decisions. They need trained surgeons, expensive equipment and large spaces to include these in their plan.
The demand and market for hybrid operating room exists, but hospitals find it difficult to implement because of the initial investments. Smaller establishments especially cannot afford to offer such advanced technologies. In emerging economies as well the demand is high but the cost of setting up hybrid operating rooms is steep, and can discourage hospitals with no immediate scope for return on investment.
Hybrid operating rooms enable surgical rooms to be equipped with other facilities and doctors can have access to real time radiology reports, take on the spot decisions and perform complex, minimally invasive surgeries without having to transfer patients. This increases efficiency, and reduces patient’s discomfort. Hospitals that are using hybrid operating rooms have over time experienced better cost control and improved returns. Patients have also expressed satisfaction about receiving better services.

The countries where hybrid operating rooms are gaining in popularity are United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany and other developed countries. On the other hand, Asia Pacific is expected to register the largest growth lead by countries such as Singapore and India.
Companies are also looking to increase offerings as the demand involves. For instance, GE Healthcare and Maquet came together for a new flexible angiography system for hybrid operating rooms that will use GE’s Discovery IGS 730 and Maquet’s Magnus operating table system for multidisciplinary surgical interventions. The Magnus system universal table top will help its use as a regular operating room as well.
“Improved cost control and enhanced patient comfort to drive hybrid operating room market”
The industry demands for a solid promotion and awareness about this. The current process though incurring less cost, however, can be made more effective with adoption of new technologies. The companies dealing in healthcare services are required to attract investments from local governments to overcome the operation challenges in the adoption of the new technologies.
