The health sector in Brazil has shown strong growth in recent years and market expectations indicate that this expansion will continue for a number of reasons that affect demand, such as the changing age pyramid, the growth of the elderly population and the desire for better quality services; and also factors driving supply, such the growth of private investment and the opening of the market to foreign capital.
Technology has already had a significant impact on the technical areas of health (treatment, prevention, medicines, etc.) but the effect of information technology on the management and productivity of the health sector is still in its early stages. The penetration of software in the overall chain is low, from health centers to the suppliers and retailers of this chain.
One of ORIA’s investment theses is SaaS solutions focused primarily on enhancing productivity, management capacity and information for this sector. This includes the operations of the health agents (hospitals, health insurance, clinics), the supply chain (medicines, materials, equipment) and the patients (prevention, assessment and monitoring).
