National healthcare systems face challenges that are both local and universal. Changing demographics and high patient expectations in a time of rising costs, talent shortages, and fiscal constraints create disruption and require confident, informed management. In order to enhance quality of service and value for payments, healthcare organizations have to adopt superior processes, models, and cost management capabilities. This is as true for an institution operating in a national healthcare environment as it is for an institution operating in a fee-for-services one.

The biggest change in healthcare may not be the care itself, but the way it is delivered. Fiscal constraints will force tighter management of costs. The market will demand improved clinical outcomes without a commensurate increase in cost to the patient or the system. Expect fewer F2F physician visits and greater reliance on electronic records & remote diagnostics.

With the graying of the global population and greater disposable income in emerging markets, overall healthcare spend will grow. The current $5 trillion in public and private spend on healthcare (60% of which is spent outside the US) is growing at moderate CAGRs for healthcare services and high CAGRs of 7% for healthcare informatics and 14% for telehealth.
