Enabling Digital Health at Scale Post-COVID-19
November 17, 2020
COVID-19 is catalyzing digital transformation in many areas of healthcare and creating opportunities for innovators. The impact on the traditional, hospital-centric health system will accelerate business model shifts, new entrants, and the adoption of new technologies. Healthcare’s business model will be the most fundamental shift catalyzed by COVID-19. Health systems MUST reorganize around the unique needs of patients rather than around their own functional areas, and technology has the opportunity to play a critical role.
This surge in virtual care brought on by the pandemic has catalyzed an era of expansive care distribution and decentralization. Swift changes in how care is delivered creating a greater need for systems to adopt flexible digital models for patients to access care outside traditional brick-and-mortar health care facilities.
Similar to consumer-centric industries being disrupted after cultural catalyzes, healthcare could be facing a future of disruption from external digital forces as a result of these swift transformations from COVID-19.
