The recent IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Healthcare Industry 2023 Predictions report, offers some fascinating and provocative forecasts for what the next year – and years – might hold for care delivery and the technologies deployed to improve it.
“Technological strategies and capabilities will determine how healthcare organizations navigate the aftereffects of the global COVID-19 pandemic combined with the impact of everything from inflationary pressures to supply chain constraints, labor and skills shortages, the Russia-Ukraine War, and other geopolitical threats,” said IDC Health Insights Research Director Mutaz Shegewi in a statement when the report was published.
“Healthcare organizations also face escalating cybersecurity risks, shifting care models, and an ongoing need to strive for service excellence while addressing broader, systemic challenges,” he added. “Opportunities present alongside each challenge; however, healthcare organizations must act quickly because the next five years will prove that the storms are not temporary but lasting and interwoven.”
Shegewi spoke with us recently to walk through the 10 predictions for 2023 and beyond and unpack what some of them will mean for the industry.
