Health, Healthcare and wellbeing


Health is evolving, as emerging models, pressures, expectations and technologies reshape not just healthcare, but the fundamentals of how we think about health systems.

Healthcare is more integrated across providers, programs and governments than ever.

The role of the patient is changing, with greater personal control of health and information, greater expectations of care integration, and greater concerns for privacy and transparency the norm.

Health technology is more connected than ever, and data has become an irreplaceable asset to drive health outcomes at the level of individual patients and whole communities and societies.

Public health policy is being reimagined in response to the pandemic, and the rise of new models of clinical care and social programming is accelerating.

The determinants of health are widening in scope, creating opportunities for novel interventions, and challenging existing approaches.

Treatments and therapies are becoming more personalised, with the system on the cusp of a precision medicine as genetic technology and patient analytics continue to accelerate.
