Slide 1 of 11
Health plans, providers, life sciences companies and the government are facing rising costs and inconsistent outcomes, according to professional services firm Deloitte. To improve care and health outcomes, while reducing costs and spending, will likely require new innovations over the next 10 years. The group has delineated what it considers to be the 10 most important.
The Deloitte Center for Health Solutions surveyed leaders across the healthcare system to identify the innovations they think are most likely to transform healthcare. Deloitte maintains that the 10 innovations identified in its report have the potential to break the constraints of the fee-for-service-based healthcare system and expand the frontier through new business models -- which have the potential to deliver care in ways previously not thought possible.
Incorporating these top 10 innovations into business models will require changing how healthcare organizations currently prevent, diagnose, monitor and treat disease, according to Deloitte. Leaders, the group said, should determine which innovations break performance trade-offs, or create more for less, in a way that impacts their core business. They should consider building ecosystems that embrace non-traditional players and sources of knowledge outside their own four walls. They should also consider building pilots before investing in scale, learn to embrace change, and evaluate new revenue sources. And organizations should strive to be agile in anticipating and adjusting their strategies as innovations continue to evolve.
