Increasing prevalence of chronic disease, rapidly aging populations, and huge middle-class growth in developing economies are combining to push the growth in global healthcare expenditure from 2.4% in 2015 to an estimated 7.5% by 2020, making next year’s growth alone an additional $750 billion. New ways to manage this unsustainable growth are needed.
Digital technologies can offer ways to tackle this challenge, and in fact, a wide range of digital technologies are already being deployed today. At Lux, we applied a digital framework to identify core outcomes and digital use cases impacting major stakeholders in their new report, “The Digital Transformation of Healthcare.”
