Global Health Intelligence (GHI) is the company behind HospiRank
In 2014 GHI created and launched HospiScope, the world’s largest database of hospital demographics for Latin America. That data is what powers HospiRank 2020, ensuring that it’s direct from the sources (the hospitals themselves) and is constantly updated throughout the year by a team of experienced researchers.
In 2017 GHI published the first edition of HospiRank. The 2017-2019 editions of HospiRank offered a ranking of the top 5 hospitals across 7 categories, along with a limited country reports.
HospiRank 2020 is vastly expanded compared to any previous editions. It was created to offer a unique resource for the sales and marketing teams of medical equipment manufacturers, revealing the hospitals that drive demand in Latin America, purchase habits and broader market patterns to shape strategic planning for 2021 and beyond.
The main features include:
