  • Changing demographics healthcare , PwC
    are driving up the demand for healthcare According to the United Nations the world s population is expected to increase by one billion people by 2025 Of that billion 300 million will be people aged 65 or older as life expectancy around the globe continues to rise Additional healthcare resources and service innovation is needed globally to deliver the long term care and chronic disease management services required by a rapidly increasing senior population At the same time developing countries are experiencing significant growth in their middle class The Brookings Institute estimates 65 of the global population will be middle class by 2030 Accelerated urbanisation and access to middle class comforts are promoting sedentary lifestyle changes that will inevitably lead to greater incidence of obesity diabetes and other costly health conditions These demographic changes will not be evenly distributed across the globe however Growth for example will be more concentrated in some parts of the world Africa s population is anticipated to double by 2050 while Europe s population is shrinking Impact on Healthcare Driven in part by demographic changes a new paradigm of public and private sector collaboration is developing to transform healthcare financing and delivery Partnerships with new market participants from industries such as retail telecommunications technology wellness and fitness are expanding and reshaping the health system What is the payoff for collaborators These partnerships open the door to a multi trillion dollar global market for these new commercial entrants while governments gain access to the innovation and efficiency of new technologies they would not otherwise be able to afford The shared benefits are long term cost savings with better outcomes for the patients at a time when changing demographics are depleting health resources A rising middle class will fuel increasing demand for more health options Looking forward

  • Depleting resources pressure healthcare , PwC
    labour shortage Healthcare systems around the world are dealing with depleting resources at a time when demand for healthcare is rapidly rising Governments face growing pressure to reduce costs without impacting quality or access to care At the same time the World Economic Forum and OECD predict BRICS will see a 117 increase in health spending over the next decade while U S health expenditures are projected to increase by 3 5 trillion between 2010 and 2040 Governments are responding with healthcare reforms and recognising the need for greater collaboration with the private sector While funding challenges exert significant pressure on healthcare systems the shortage of human resources presents a more alarming trend There is already a want for skilled doctors nurses and other healthcare providers The approaching wave of retirements of healthcare professionals looms large at a time when demand for services is rising Current systems will be unable to keep up with the swelling health needs of the population According to the World Health Organization by 2035 we face a projected shortage of 12 9 million healthcare professionals globally Regional human resource depletion or brain drain is also an issue for many developing countries With healthcare workers high in demand developing countries are losing skilled educated professionals and caregivers to more lucrative markets Impact on Healthcare Governments are looking for low cost efficient solutions to reform healthcare and address their depleting resource issues They are adopting process driven advances and standardised procedures and optimising human resources with an eye to continual quality improvement and cost cutting New business models are emerging that have governments collaborating with the private sector to address the situation with transparency and favourable outcomes Public private partnerships offer the benefits of long term cost savings and the achievement of clear quality benchmarks Technology has become a driver of change and a potential solution to healthcare s resource problems The private sector is an appealing health partner because of its ability to bring innovation and improved efficiency With advanced analytic tools for more precise patient diagnosis and disease detection health systems can achieve greater value in clinical services more patient adherence and better outcomes But for technology to be effective at offsetting the human resource shortage it has to be easy for busy professionals to use and produce reliable results Technological advances are also changing the way consumers access and receive care Inpatient care is moving to outpatient service Mobile devices and apps are enabling greater patient engagement in their own care Patients can monitor their health at home with devices that send reports wirelessly to their physician Remote monitoring telemedicine and mobile devices will help reduce the burden on health systems as care shifts away from professional settings Improved analytics will also provide healthcare professionals with greater insight With knowledge of patient flow and care delivery pathways health professionals can provide the most appropriate individualised care more efficiently Governments are also implementing new efficiency based reimbursement models to reduce the growing burden of healthcare

  • Consumer distrust in healthcare services , PwC
    demonstrating a lack of trust in traditional health systems they are increasingly willing to entrust their health services to non health sectors and ubiquitous technology is giving them the tools to do so We are in an era of consumer distrust and this is clearly evident in the healthcare industry Patients are becoming more demanding of information alternatives and improved outcomes Armed with more knowledge their scrutiny of each viable care option increases Healthcare like other industries is also affected by global shifts in economic power and the transition of business activity from Western nations to emerging markets Consumers are able to take control of their own healthcare through local or international innovations These developments are creating new health economies out of growing global competition The pressure is thus on governments to reduce costs right at a time when the consumer is most demanding Their challenge is to maintain quality and increase access to care with fewer resources to draw from Simultaneously as new players come on the scene traditional players including governments will have to decide with whom to compete and with whom to partner Impact on Healthcare New entrants have several advantages within the healthcare space global reach customer insights commitment to transparency and trusted brands They regard their unique perspective as an asset to capture and dominate the fragmented sector Technology and the rise of mobile health mHealth have blurred the borders for healthcare products and services Emerging markets are challenging conventional thinking adopting principles from other industries to develop creative solutions that improve performance and reduce costs They have an advantage over developed countries because they are unencumbered by legacy infrastructure and are more willing to adopt new innovation Meanwhile more competition allows discerning consumers to focus on and demand results Governments have been forced to

  • The empowered consumer : PwC
    delivery and financing of healthcare In a recent PwC consumer survey almost half of respondents said they would consider having procedures like wound treatment stitches or staples removed at a retail clinic or pharmacy One third said they would get an MRI at a retail venue The underlying message is that patients are accepting greater accountability for their health Patients are also welcoming the flexibility that technology brings to their care Increasingly they are willing to be monitored wirelessly for their conditions and to consider receiving traditionally hospital based medical treatments such as chemotherapy at home Obtaining readings from devices like electrocardiograms pacemakers or defibrillators which generally requires an in person visit can now be done through a mobile phone and wirelessly sent to a physician Patients are taking a greater interest in their care and are more willing to self manage They want to be more empowered when it comes to their health Leveraging available health information new technology and mobile health mHealth the empowered consumer knows more wants more and is able to do more for themselves Impact on Healthcare More engaged and discerning consumers are exerting greater influence on health systems and driving new business models This trend is opening the door for new entrants from industries such as retail telecommunications technology and wellness and fitness At the same time new products services and delivery systems are helping to democratise and decentralise healthcare An era of patient centric health systems is emerging We are seeing a general shift away from fragmented care to integrated models organisations communities and social care providers coordinating their services with patients as active partners in their health across the continuum Informed consumers will demand increasing accountability integrity and transparency from their health systems Meanwhile the pressure is on governments to provide sustainable
