With the vast improvements and technological advances in healthcare, people are living longer than ever before and this is expected to keep increasing. Predictions (U.S. Census Bureau) estimate that by 2050, the global aging population will double compared to that in 2000. The 65-year and older population in America is projected to double in the next 30 years – from 48 million to 88 million. While this will most likely result in the increase of healthcare costs, contributions to healthcare will drastically decrease. For these reasons, it is imperative that healthcare organizations prepare to meet this significant challenge.
To help address these issues, healthcare organizations are ramping up their digital transformation efforts to achieve enhanced patient centricity in hospitals, while also improving workforce conditions including remote health monitoring by leveraging cloud computing and IOT. While these digital transformation initiatives are expected to help organizations improve quality of patient care and reduce spending, they are facing numerous challenges throughout the implementation phase, including:
- Achieving customer centricity
- Improving patient engagement
- Maintaining analytical capability
- Ensuring security and protection
