Abstract

This IDC study explores how the different drivers will impact technology in the health industry and offers guidance on actions to consider. Healthcare and life science organizations are more pressed than ever to respond to a wide range of political, economic, social, cultural, technological, legal, and experiential challenges. Increasing market pressures, sweeping regulations, and rapid changes in the general populace and in the states of health and well-being are calling for the health industry to take action in innovative ways to meet expectations, improve outcomes, and deliver value.

"The 2018 worldwide health industry predictions shed light on the trajectory of rapid technological developments that will impact healthcare and life science organizations as they navigate toward the future digital economy," says Mutaz Shegewi, research director, IDC Health Insights. "The health industry of the future will be shaped by organizations that were early to digitally transform, maintain a competitive edge, and ensure a state of technological readiness for it."
