Healthcare Digital Transformation
for the Post-Pandemic Era
The past year has seen rapid acceleration of digital transformation across all industry sectors. Healthcare has been at the forefront of this trend. From soaring adoption of telehealth to digital-native and AI-based development of highly effective mRNA-based vaccines in a record time, every segment of healthcare has embraced digital transformation as an essential tool to survive and thrive during and post pandemic.
From the patient perspective, the healthcare journey is becoming increasingly digital because of changing consumer behavior and expectations. From the provider perspective, digital care delivery is the only way to safely provide care in most situations during the pandemic. Plus, the digitalization of healthcare systems leads to better quality and greater efficiencies. From the payer perspective, digital technologies allow payers to communicate directly with patients leading to healthy patients, improved patient satisfaction, and reduced payer costs; digital transformation of operations leads to better quality and reduced costs. From the pharma perspective, digital transformation enables faster drug development and improved profits. From the regulator perspective, establishing the right rules and guidelines can unleash the power of digital transformation across all health sectors. During the pandemic it has become clear that global healthcare policy is just as important as policy at the national, state, and local levels. From the global health perspective, digital transformation is critical for effectively tracking the spread and mutations and for resuming travel and other activities.
