Healthcare segment now welcomes Wipro Infotech to offer technology solutions. With increasing number of specialty hospitals, day-care surgical centers, Wipro looks for a great opportunity to grow. From hardware to servers to consulting, Wipro plans to offer a complete suite solution to the industry.
Wipro believes that with demand for healthcare services expected to be driven by both urban and rural markets in the coming decade, increasing penetration of both private and government health insurance schemes is expected to increase healthcare coverage. The industry will see the growth of more single specialty hospitals. There was a demand for such specialty centers along with rising incomes and awareness levels which are the drivers for this growth. The specialties in the areas of heart, cancer, eye, maternal and child care, and cosmetology, are expected tor rise.
The healthcare sector deploying IT engineers is seeing a huge amount of attrition as IT companies look to poach them. IT issues can now be outsourced to companies like Wipro as the healthcare sector alone cannot maintain these services without a technical team.
