THE NEXT TRANSFORMATION IN HEALTHCARE
We stand on the precipice of a healthcare transformation. In recent decades, societies have tried to shift the focus from treating acute conditions in emergency settings to managing chronic conditions.
Right now, half of all adults live with a chronic condition.
Almost two-thirds (60 per cent) of over-65s live with two or more chronic conditions. Health systems have had to adapt.
Health system managers are grappling with two big questions:
• how to put the patient at the centre of treatment decisions, and,
• how to share risk between stakeholders to give patients better outcomes and more value.
But this isn’t the transformation we need to talk about. The next big change is already at the door – moving from the
management of chronic conditions to the prevention and cure of disease.
We call the result of this new transformation ‘care=cure’.
Data will transform healthcare as we know it. The combination of large data sets and algorithms able to analyse them will open new areas of knowledge and research. Data will also help drive more personalised and preventative care.
