Kenya 2020: Hospital & Medical Installed Base Mapping Report - The Country's Ability to Handle a Mass Outbreak of COVID-19 Could Be Severely Challenged -

DUBLIN--()--Kenya 2020: Hospital & Medical Installed Base Mapping Report - The Country's Ability to Handle a Mass Outbreak of COVID-19 Could Be Severely Challenged - ResearchAndMarkets.comThe "HospeTrack Hospital Intelligence for Kenya" report has been added to's offering.

The Kenya Total Hospital & Medical Installed Base Mapping report was updated in 2020 and includes over 422 hospitals and diagnostic imaging centers from the country with their health infrastructure detailed out.

With Imaging & Patient Monitoring Device Penetration as Low as 24%, the Success of Kenya's Plans to Improve Tertiary Care Services may Depend on Capital Equipment Purchases

With strict public health measures including social distancing, Kenya has been successful to a large extent towards limiting the spread of COVID-19 cases. Having designated some of its top tertiary care hospitals as COVID-19 facilities, Kenya's proactive approach has been noteworthy thus far. However, with just about 20 specialists capable of operating mechanical ventilators in the entire country, the country's ability to handle a mass outbreak could be severely challenged.

As of 2019, about 422 hospitals were functioning in Kenya. Over 22 of them are currently equipped to provide tertiary care services. This segment of tertiary care hospitals represents approximately 24% of the total inpatient beds in the country. However, only 4-5% of these beds are equipped to provide intensive care services. The Government of Kenya as part of a new plan has committed itself to enhance access to health insurance, improve the flow of funds to county healthcare, and increase overall health spending to meet Kenya's goals for the Vision 2030 agenda. The new policy may drive growth in the number of hospitals offering tertiary care services in the next 3-4 years.

According to the HospeTrack Hospital Intelligence for Kenya, the largest opportunity in the immediate term could be around infrastructure build-up necessary for expanding tertiary care services in the country. This could include growth in anaesthesia machines, ventilators, operating rooms, CT and MRI scanners. The data in the report indicates that there are roughly 320 ventilators in the country, to serve its 518 ICU beds. This inadequate penetration of intensive care equipment including low-acuity / portable ventilators, vital sign monitors as well as syringe pumps represent some of the key growth opportunities for medical device manufacturers.

The growth opportunities in the level 4,5 and 6 hospitals could be another important target segment for manufacturers who supply patient monitoring and diagnostic equipment in Kenya. This could be especially true for some of the public provincial, public referral and district hospitals. Currently, these hospitals have less than 24% penetration in terms of imaging equipment such as X-Rays, Ultrasounds, and CT scanners. This is where the Kenyan public health sector could potentially look to focus its efforts - strengthen the district level programs with monitoring and diagnostic equipment. A pivot chart from this report quantitatively demonstrates strong potential for the medical devices market in the country.

The report 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 Kenya. 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 Kenya.

The report 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 the 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.
