Healthcare systems throughout the world are facing many challenges. The pressures of the growing demand for healthcare services – fueled by aging populations and burgeoning middle classes, increasing consumer empowerment along with expectations of higher-quality care and a squeeze on funding – have created a perfect storm that is driving a need for new innovative technologies and business models. The healthcare systems will increase demand for new evidence and definitions for positive health outcomes before using any new technology or services that aims to revolutionize healthcare delivery.
In such an environment, the need for heightened efficiencies and increased innovation has never been greater. Accordingly, companies must find new ways to improve the efficiency of their operations, increase their research-and development (R&D) capabilities, tap into alternative sources of innovation and capture new customers — particularly as demand for healthcare rises.
To address emerging issues and guide this sector in the future, leaders will need strong general management skills coupled with an in-depth understanding of the health sector’s complex business relationships and value chain.
