Nosocomial infections/hospital acquired diseases/hospital associated infections (HAI)form one of the critical areas of focus in the healthcare industry. Factors such as increasing prevalence of such conditions in neonatal and geriatric population, initiatives taken up by governments to manage nosocomial infections, increasing number of diseases that increases risk of hospital associated infections, and growing concerns about control and prevention of nosocomial infections worldwide will have a positiveimpact on the current hospital acquired disease testing industry.

The global hospital acquired disease testing market is segmented on the basis of type of infection and geography. Based on the different typesof infection,this market is classified into pneumonia, urinary tract infection, blood stream infection, surgical site associated infection, MRSA infection testing and others. The hospital acquired urinary tract infection diagnostics segment occupies the largest market share in this category as prevalence and morbidity rate of this condition, and the demand for diagnostic solutions for the same is the highest as compared to other hospital associated infections. It is expected that the global market for hospital associated urinary tract infection testing will reach USD 2,188.8 million in 2019 with the market growing at CAGR of 18.1%from 2013 to 2019. Furthermore, other testing solutions for conditions such as surgical site infections and pneumonia (hospital associated and ventilator associated infections) will also experience high demand in lesser developed regions of Asia-Pacific, Latin America and other developing countries where the prevalence of such conditions is higher. It is expected that the market for surgical site infections will grow at a CAGR of 20.1%during the given period of forecast.

Geographically, United States and Canada together are the leaders inthe global hospital acquired disease testing market with a combined market share (of the North American region) of 41.3% in 2012. Some of the major growth drivers for the North American nosocomial infection testing market include existence of highly developed healthcare infrastructure, high rate of implementation of healthcare guidelines given by regulatory and guiding institutions such as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.), and increasing awareness about these diseases and their prevention. The European Union considers infectious diseases as an increasing threat to the general public health; the public health system in this region is increasingly engaging itself in conducting dialogue between healthcare providers and medical practitioners for developing better, faster and cost effective methods for nosocomial infection management and prevention. Asian countries including China, Philippines and India are the most potential markets for such diagnostic and testing solutions owing to existence of factors such as higher population, poor hospital infrastructure, lack of adherence to sanitation procedures and thereforehigher disease prevalence growth rates. UAE and African countries are some of the lucrative markets in the Rest of the World (RoW).

Molecular diagnostics solutions play a vital role in this market as they offer precise, faster and cost effective diagnosis for various nosocomial infections. Considering the market competition, the global hospital acquired infection testing market is highly fragmented and is characterized by the existence of several large and mid-sized diagnostic solution providers. Some of the key market players contributing to this industry include Diatherix Laboratories Inc., Gen-Probe Inc., Qiagen GmbH, L Hoffman La Roche,Cepheid, Inc.,Life Technologies Corporation, Meridian Biosciences, Cantel Medical Corporation, Nordion, Inc. and others.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
