Understanding a rapidly changing healthcare environment matched with a finger on the innovation pulse
Healthcare is rapidly changing, technology is moving at lightning speed, innovation is a necessity. We understand the challenges and constraints of the current healthcare environment but help you to stretch your thinking, move out of your comfort zone and into a new realm of thinking.
An aging population, an increase in lifestyle and diet-related health problems, rising patient expectations, higher costs, limited resources. These are some of the challenge’s Australia, and indeed the rest of the world, is facing.
Patients and families are no longer passive recipients of their healthcare. As participatory consumers they want to be partners in their health and treatment. Innovations, change and transformation need to be designed with patients and families, in order to deliver solutions that are simple and profound.
Successful innovation and design of healthcare systems needs to simultaneously achieve:
- A better patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction)
- Improve the health of populations: and
- Reduce the per capita cost of health care.
