A sector in disruption
Health care around the globe is embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime transformation — the move to “Health 2.0,” the consumer-centric, outcomes-driven, prevention-focused future of health care.
There are two catalysts for this shift. First, with aging populations and emerging market growth, chronic disease is becoming a global epidemic and driving health care cost inflation to unsustainable levels. To tame costs, payers and governments are realigning incentives around value and outcomes.
At the same time, health is finally entering the digital age — unlocking information, empowering patients, enabling real-time analytics and bringing much-needed focus on prevention. Yet, just as technology creates opportunities for health care organizations, it also presents threats as new entrants disrupt the competitive landscape.
These changes require patients, payers, providers, governments and life sciences companies — everyone within the health ecosystem — to think differently about health care as we know it. Collaborative approaches will be needed to create sustainable health care systems that deliver high quality care while being efficient and cost-effective.
