The report surveyed 3,000 healthcare leaders from 14 countries  — 200 of whom were from the U.S. — between December and March.

Seven report findings:

  2. Eighty-nine percent of American respondents said they are investing in telehealth.

  3. Seven percent of American respondents said their healthcare facility needs to invest in implementing predictive healthcare technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. This is compared to the 26 percent of respondents worldwide who expressed such need, followed by 68 percent of French respondents and 62 percent of Singaporean respondents.

  4. Fifty-seven percent of American respondents said they will invest in predictive healthcare technologies three years from now, compared to 40 percent of respondents worldwide, 78 percent of Indian respondents and 71 percent of Saudi respondents.
