Medical Equipment Market Report: Latin America 2020

Methodology

Medical Equipment Market Report: Latin America 2020 uses public sources and data exclusive from Global Health Intelligence (GHI), the world’s premier source for data analytics on Latin American hospitals.

While Part 1 of Medical Equipment Market Report: Latin America 2020 generally uses public sources such as the World Health Organization and the Pan American Health Organization, the rest of the data is exclusive to Global Health Intelligence (GHI), the world’s premier source for data analytics on Latin American hospitals.

Nearly all of the data in Parts 2-4 of the report comes from HospiScope, the world’s leading database for Latin American hospitals. Created in 2015, HospiScope currently contains data for more than 19,000 hospitals in 17 Latin American countries. Every year, HospiScope researchers obtain or update more than 2 million data points concerning Latin American hospitals.

This data comes directly from the hospitals themselves — primary source data. This is in marked contrast to all of the data reports on the medical device or equipment market that are produced by other companies. These companies generally rely on government sources and other sources of public data. As such, this data may be less reliable and out of date. In contrast, HospiScope data comes directly from qualified hospital personnel.

In addition, after it is compiled, HospiScope data is subject to rigorous statistical modeling and cross-checking to ensure maximum accuracy by applying unique algorithms.
