Healthcare systems are undergoing dramatic structural changes that will impact every aspect of the way healthcare services are paid for and delivered, and the movement of care outside traditional settings is transforming medicine through digital health solutions.
Tackling healthcare challenges such as reducing costs, improving access to care and outcomes is centric to the full potential of connected healthcare. In future, connected healthcare is set to empower consumers by encouraging them to capture, analyze and act on their health data, as well as coordinate with healthcare professionals and their care team.
While this requires integration of several functionalities such as remote monitoring, mHealth, wearables, IT platforms and health records, companies are forging ahead by developing partnerships with providers, payers, device manufacturers, governments and telecom companies to establish connectivity ecosystems that can efficiently leverage data into actionable insights.
