Disrupting Healthcare Delivery: Lessons from Global Innovators
Healthcare in the United States is changing more rapidly than ever before. From rising costs, evolving policy and reimbursement environments, changes in patient access and infrastructure, and a greater focus on clinical outcomes, it’s clear that this continual market disruption is leading to mounting pressure on incumbents to maintain their ability to drive revenues and, in turn, attractive returns for their shareholders.
In emerging markets, however, members of the rapidly growing middle class have signiﬁcant unmet healthcare needs, which represent a compelling opportunity for innovative companies to fuel future growth.
Continuum is tackling the need to improve Access, Value, and Outcomes in current models of care delivery alongside our clients, so we have pulled together a panel of experts to share how they are thinking about healthcare disruption today.
