Malaysia 2020: Total Hospital & Medical Installed Base Mapping Report with COVID-19 Updates - Investment Focus in Tertiary Care Medical Equipment Infrastructure -

DUBLIN--()--The "HospeTrack Hospital Intelligence for Malaysia" report has been added to's offering.

The Malaysia Total Hospital & Medical Installed Base Mapping report was updated in 2020 and includes over 376 hospitals from the country with their health infrastructure detailed out.

Malaysia's Effort to Achieve the Developed Nation Status Likely to Depend on Focused Investments in Tertiary Care Medical Equipment Infrastructure

Malaysia as it stands represents the highest number of cases recovering from coronavirus (COVID-19) in the ASEAN region. Presented with the challenge early on, the country's past experience of dealing with Nipah virus aided the initiation of its preventive strategy revolving largely around travel restrictions, testing and partial to complete lockdown. While the preventive measures are being implemented, the Kementerian Kesihatan - Malaysia, is working towards the provision of critical care infrastructure for its vulnerable population. The country since then has procured >100 ICU beds and ~800 new ventilators for treatment of critical COVID-19 cases.

As of 2019, about 376 hospitals were functioning in Malaysia. Around 56 of them are equipped to provide tertiary care services. The number is set to rise in the next 3-4 years, with Malaysia's Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) aiming to hasten growth in health infrastructure. Steady growth in healthcare spending was also noticeable, with a 7.8% Y-o-Y increase in 2018-2019, as the Government hopes to meet the WHO recommended 7% of GDP spent on healthcare.

According to the HospeTrack Hospital Intelligence for Malaysia, this impetus by the Government is expected to accelerate the number of hospitals scaling up from secondary to tertiary care services. For the next 3-4 years, growth could potentially be driven by the 320 secondary care hospitals in the country, that hold up to 800+ ICU beds, accounting for 47% of overall ICU beds in the country. Malaysia currently has ~1,000 mechanical ventilators in Intensive Care facilities (ICUs). The new data from the report quantitatively demonstrate a strong potential for the medical devices market in the country.

The dataset will allow users to understand in-depth the account level investments in terms of personnel, medical equipment installed base, and departmental maturity. For example, the overall penetration of major diagnostic imaging and image-guided therapeutic equipment such as CT, MRI and Cath Labs, in the Large Private Hospital and National Referral Hospitals still averages at one unit per hospital - indicating a potential growth area for medical device manufacturers. Currently, the secondary care hospitals in the country have around 60% penetration in terms of essential diagnostic imaging equipment such as Ultrasounds.

The dataset provides account-level directional detail on total beds, ICU beds, ORs, ventilators, incubators, etc., along with Anaesthesia Machines, C-Arms, Cath Labs, PET, Nuclear, SPECT, CT, MRI scanners, Ultrasound and X-Ray machines, making it the only source of hospital-level intelligence for medical equipment installed base in Malaysia. This dataset is a valuable tool for any organization that is in the process of optimizing sales targets, estimating market potential or building an account management plan in Malaysia.

HospeTrack Malaysia is a craftily designed dataset that provides a graphical summary of the health infrastructure in the country apart from an account-level view of resources, directional information on medical device installed base, hospital demographic and care services. The report commits itself as a tool to understand, visualize, and identify opportunity pockets at the hospital-level for medical devices manufacturers, and digital healthcare companies.
