‘Healthcare without boundaries’ and ‘Hospitals without walls’ are becoming the new buzzwords and signal the future of healthcare delivery. Internet makes that possible. The millennial customer expect delivery of services at the door step or virtually. Healthcare services are no exception, despite the need for physical presence in case of surgeries or diagnostic procedures. The customer demand for a decentralized value based healthcare system will be the driving force for this transition.
The customer will demand more accessibility, at hours and places of his convenience, and the early transformers will own the market.
Deloitte’s Global Life Sciences & Health Care Industry Group sums it best:
The transition to hospitals without walls is happening. It is no longer a choice but a future reality. Virtual health is augmenting and extending care delivery outside traditional hospital buildings – clinicians and patients are demanding it; funders and regulators are supporting it. This transition is absolutely integral to creating a more sustainable and equitable public and private health system in the future.
How can hospitals, doctors, health regulators, insurance companies, and well-being companies collaborate and pave the way forward to making healthcare more accessible, affordable, and provide better well-being?
