The Healthcare industry is grappling with significant changes across its entire ecosystem with constricted reimbursement pathways, heightened regulatory scrutiny, a fractured innovation pipeline and increased competition from new entrants.
The ubiquitous theme in the industry is the shift towards improved outcomes and patient centricity. The industry has been quick to embrace a plethora of new technologies like mHealth, Telemedicine, Internet of Things, Big Data, Additive Manufacturing, in an effort to rein in costs, effectively manage their asset-base and drive outcome based medicine. These technologies are helping create an “informed patient” and drive more collaboration across the ecosystem to provide effective care.
