Predictions (and Challenges) for Healthcare and the Life Sciences in 2021
Two major reports have mapped out predictions for the paths forward - and the obstacles to overcome. The IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Health Industry 2021 Predictions report focuses heavily on the impact of granular digitalization efforts. The report from PwC's Health Research Institute (HRI), Top health industry issues of 2021: Will a shocked system emerge stronger?, takes a more holistic view of how the operational, employee and customer experiences will need to evolve to benefit from these technological shifts. Differences aside, the bottom line in both reports is unmistakable. By necessity - and resolve - the future is coming.
