Abstract

Digitalization has reached every aspect of life today. The convergence of breakthrough technologies and biomedical science is about to change how we as a society provide and consume healthcare services. Current healthcare models are not sustainable but the transition to digital healthcare offers many opportunities. What is emerging is a healthcare ecosystem, moving beyond traditional hierarchies, in which all healthcare shareholders participate and benefit. Leaders will be inspired to reevaluate business models, business processes, and workforce structures to meet their strategic objectives, including enhancing the patient experience, optimizing outcomes for each individual patient, empowering healthcare workers, increasing operational efficiency and applying data-driven clinical innovations.
