Leap to the Future of Hospitals: Riding the Storm, Planning the Next Steps
This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation was delivered during the IDC Digital Innovation Connection event on November 23, 2021. It aims to shine a light on the hospital of the future and its role within the wider healthcare ecosystem
Hospitals have been on the front lines since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. They have worked tirelessly to deliver a comprehensive response while overcoming daunting operational challenges. The pandemic has revealed healthcare organizations' failure to deliver robust healthcare services.
The rapid increase in care services demand has also exposed the lack of scale and centralization of primary care and specialty services, which will be necessary in facilitating any health system's entry into the post-COVID-19 reality. In the future, there will be a higher degree of uncertainty, and healthcare systems will need to adapt. They will need to be able to cater for emergency situations, without neglecting the general population's existing health needs. Tackling these challenges over the coming months will require effective collaboration between systems and clinicians across primary, secondary, and community care.
