FOCUS AREAS | Sustainability
How might we grow businesses that thrive within planetary boundaries?
We want the best healthcare for all, but it must be accessible and affordable. This will continue to be an important driver of success for all countries. The potential of technology to prevent, diagnose and treat disease and improve our health and wellbeing is poised to enter a new phase of dramatic growth.
Advances in digital technology, including better video streaming and the miniaturisation of electronics, is changing the landscape in terms of disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment on a tremendous scale.
This helps ensure everyone – not just patients – is proactively, adequately and continually evaluated.
Smart use of technology and data will enable the deployment of more localised, even personalised solutions, only calling on the intervention of healthcare professionals when required. Ultimately, it is not just innovation in technology that will provide improved outcomes, but the business models that deliver the solutions.
