Digital Health Intelligence, the NHS IT sector’s leading market intelligence platform, has launched a dedicated new service focused on clinical imaging market opportunities.  

The new Clinical Imaging intelligence service enables clients to understand and target commercial opportunities across the NHS clinical imaging landscape, including X-ray, Ultrasound, CT, MRI, Fluoroscopy, Mammography, and nuclear modalities. 

The Clinical Imaging service is complimentary to the current Digital Health Intelligence Service, which provides detailed data on the clinical systems, hardware and infrastructure used by every NHS provider organisation, together with details of key contacts, contract tenders and awards. 

“Digital Health Intelligence already provides market-leading data on NHS clinical systems and infrastructure and are now progressively extending the service to cover clinical imaging. This will be followed next by coverage of smart medical devices,” said Jon Hoeksma, CEO at Digital Health. 

“We are committed to providing clients with the most accurate and up-to-date databases and market intelligence services covering all information technology, clinical software, diagnostic modalities and smart medical devices in use across the NHS.”          

Clinical imaging technologies are becoming more and more vital in supporting under-pressure NHS diagnostic services facing increasing patient demand. 

“We estimate that around 50% of all clinical imaging equipment across the NHS, with the exception of Ultrasound, are due for replacement within five years” said Karl Grundy, managing director of Digital Health Intelligence. 

Digital Health Intelligence research also shows that demand has increased markedly across all imaging modalities over the past two years, but at a considerably higher rate for MRI and CT. 

The new service provides subscribers with market-wide and individual visibility of clinical imaging equipment installations and contract end dates across 150 NHS organisations.  

The census-level data covers 10,000 assets and 4,500 service contracts to help subscribers shape their go-to-market strategy.  

Importantly, users can interrogate the data through multiple filters such as modality, region, portability, application, technology type, contract and equipment age – offering a tailored analysis for individual requirements.  

Key features of the service include: 

  • Easily create a sales pipeline with contracts and equipment database that can be organised by contract end dates 
  • View and filter data on supplier installations by modality, NHS organisation, region, application or portability  
  • Pinpoint the right decision makers with 1,000+ verified NHS IT contacts 
  • Identify opportunities with access to tender and framework notices  

Clinical imaging technologies are helping to address the NHS’ elective recovery and are being used alongside AI innovations to enable earlier diagnosis. The growth of regional imaging and pathology networks means investment and procurement of clinical imaging IT requirements are changing. 

Grundy added: “With nearly £750m government investment on new diagnostic imaging capital equipment and developing imaging networks, the clinical imaging landscape is evolving fast.”

“The new clinical Imaging services allows subscribers to keep up with market changes, access rich data and translate it into actionable information, within just a few clicks. You will not find a more detailed or accurate research and intelligence service focused on the UK clinical imaging sector,” concluded Grundy.

The Clinical Imaging Intelligence Service is available as a standalone subscription or can be added as part of the current Digital Health Intelligence service.
