In 2025, healthcare will look increasingly more like other consumer industries, such as retail and consumer products. Empowered patients will be in the driver's seat, focusing on prevention rather than treatment, and be comfortable sharing their health insights with providers and life sciences manufacturers in secure ways. Further, patients will be more accountable for their care and have greater access to their personal health information.
Technology will allow patients to use smart devices to monitor their health in real-time while collaborating with their physicians from home. Patients and payers will demand personalized treatments with superior outcomes, but also cost-effective. These personalized treatments are enabling the supply chain to adopt more agile modes.
In working with leading companies across the globe, we see investments focused on three strategic priorities:
- Improve patient outcomes
- Enable the digital supply chain and smart factories
- Compete as an ecosystem
We believe that the most successful companies will be admired as intelligent enterprises. These companies will run patient-centric, integrated processes that are transparent and connected to the real world. They will speak to machines in the factory, interact with patients, and promptly be aware of global health situations. People will be relieved of repetitive work and be more focused on high-impact activities.
