While the amount of capital equipment within a healthcare system is just one component within the quality of care, understanding the hospitals that tend to acquire more advanced equipment is valuable for medical equipment manufacturers in developing their plans. Understanding the market dynamics allows manufacturers to identify the medical institutions that are best positioned to adopt new technologies, implement updates, acquire service plans or other options.

In updating its HospiScope database, researchers at Global Health Intelligence or GHI, our sister company, contact thousands of hospitals in Latin America to identify the exact amount of installed equipment. GHI’s team verifies data for more than 40 different equipment categories. A number of these are for highly specialized machines that are uncommon due to their high cost and high degree of specialization.

In the ranking below, GHI analyzed the presence of equipment within Chilean hospitals:

  • Angiography machines
  • C-arms
  • MRI machines
  • Linear accelerators
  • CT scanners
  • Gamma cameras
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) systems
  • Radiotherapy machines
  • Robotic surgery systems

The top 5 most equipped hospitals were:

  1. Hospital Clínico Regional Dr. Guillermo Grant Benavente
  1. Hospital Carlos Van Buren
