5 Resources for Understanding Latin American Healthcare in 2018

One of the challenges in working with the LatAm healthcare industry is that data is often scarce, unreliable or out of data.

We noticed this while conducting healthcare research projects for different companies, and this led to us create HospiScope to track information about Latin American hospitals, as well as ShareScope for market data and In-Scope for more specific market intelligence work.

Obviously this blog is one of the ways we used to start promoting a freer flow of information in what has been kind of a data desert, but lately we have been publishing even more complimentary resources about Latin America’s medical devices and equipment market, as well as LatAm’s healthcare system.

Since you may not have heard of all of them, we wanted to let you know about them and give you direct access to them in one place.
