Artificial intelligence arrives stomping in Spanish healthcare. The diagnostics area will be the health segment with the highest annual growth through artificial intelligence (AI), with a rise of 32.5%, up to $13.3 billion between 2022 and 2030, according to the study Digital Transformation in primary care, published by Siemens Financial Services (SFS).

Telemedicine is the second area after diagnostics with the most important growth rate
After the diagnostics sector, the second area with the highest annual growth rate will be telemedicine, with an increase of 22.9% in the next seven years thanks to AI, up to $392.2 billion, compared to the current $75.3 billion.
The current turnover of smart hospitals revolves around $58.6 billion and between 2022 and 2030 it is expected to rise to $239.6 billion, which represents an average annual increase of 19.3%. Surgical robots are placed in the fourth position of the growth rate between 2022 and 2030, with an annual increase of 20%, up to $20.8 billion.
Among the areas with the lowest growth forecast for 2030, investment in digital pathology stands out, which will have a turnover of $2.4 billion and an expected growth rate of less than 15%.
The current financing of the public sector makes the digital transformation towards new technologies that include AI unfeasible, according to Siemens
Laboratory automation will reach a growth rate of less than 10%, up to €12.9 billion. A similar example occurs with diagnostic imaging, which will experience an average annual increase of less than 5% between 2022 and 2030, up to $49.8 billion.
SFS research argues that current funding levels will make it impossible to transform the healthcare sector toward incorporating artificial intelligence. Factors it highlights include delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and tight government health budgets.
For this reason, he pointed out the private sector as a fundamental cog in this evolutionary process, since it “requires intelligent financing, either to absorb the volume of renovations and replacements, to take advantage of the rapid growth of new technologies, or both.”
The report highlights the need for smart financing in order to achieve efficient investment in technology and Artificial Intelligence. In this process, the first necessary step is the replacement of obsolete technologies and equipment in order to acquire new technological tools. The third step will be the transformation towards smart buildings.
The diagnostics sector has the highest expected growth rate until 2030
The reconversion process would include the replacement and updating of outdated equipment to improve productivity and efficiency in patient diagnoses. In the environmental and energy field, the incorporation of new equipment means a reduction in emissions and energy costs.
“Healthcare organizations are well aware of the advantages of digitization, but in practice, many encounter real obstacles to investment,” said the general director of SFS in Spain, Hiart Legarreta.
