The state of digitalization in healthcare

The healthcare industry is expected to reach $6 trillion by 2027, but the projected growth comes with an assortment of challenges for key industry contributors.1 While life expectancy continues to increase, industry players are struggling to meet contemporary demands.

Past models of infrastructure skew both new and skilled talent away from the market. The younger and more digitally inclined generation expects less hierarchy and more innovative systems, while the older generation struggles with digital engagement.

As a result, business leaders are looking to challenge the status quo and establish efficient measures within the healthcare industry to create profit, enhance communication, and generate extraordinary experiences.

Top challenges facing the digital health ecosystem

  • Old systems and infrastructure limit digital reach and societal relevance, creating unnecessary spending and further complicating an already complex transition into digital healthcare
  • Lack of digital engagement from the older population continues to be ignored by critical players within the healthcare industry. Consequently, the older population's disengagement continues to extend an already massive gap
  • Improper use of consistently growing medical data limits the industry's ability to analyze its clientele. The use of unreliable and poor-quality data cannot accurately meet the needs of industry challenges
  • Industry leaders are struggling not only to find innovative talent but also to retain the talent once acquired. The younger labor force is looking to work for healthcare companies who forge fresh ideas and encourage company-wide communication across digital platforms
