Lux Research recently held a webinar, "The Hospital of the Future", which discussed key features of the hospital of the future, and potential opportunities and challenges to consider. Lux Research Senior Analyst Nardev Ramanathan, Ph.D. overviewed the challenges in the healthcare industry today that will shape the hospital of the future, identified opportunities today to benefit from a rapidly shifting landscape, and outlined the outlook for what the hospital of the future will look like.
The hospital of today operates in specific locations only. The technologies used in healthcare are mostly intrinsic to hospitals. Connected devices (Health IoT) provide real-time information to providers. Health IoT will become an integral component contributing to both the provision of care and improving hospital operations. We will still need a physical hospital, but it will serve more as a control tower. The hospital of the future will be pervasive, ubiquitous, and part of everything we do.
During the webinar, Nardev discussed how the healthcare industry today faces three major challenges: rising healthcare costs, chronic diseases, aging, and sociodemographic shifts. Digital transformation is already playing a role today and will continue to be a major driving force in the provision of care and optimizing operations.
Let Lux Research Senior Analyst Nardev Ramanathan, Ph.D. provide new opportunities for non-traditional healthcare players, while also signaling to incumbent players in the healthcare value chain to develop new strategies to stay competitive - register today to watch the on-demand webinar for "The Hospital of the Future"!
