Healthcare and Life Sciences Predictions 2020
A bold future?
Deloitte UK's Centre for Health Solutions has published numerous reports on the current and future issues of the healthcare market place – our insights drawn from primary research, desk research, significant interaction with our clients and stakeholders in the health and life sciences sector, and from the depth and breadth of capability within our global network. Our work is typically precise and evidence based, focused on the challenges of today and the solutions of tomorrow, building on prior research, We have perhaps been cautious in our views.
This report is entirely different. It is deliberately challenging about the future world, perhaps even proactive. Our work draws on observations of trends, events and small but bold steps that - if accelerated through to the year 2020 and beyond - paint a picture of a world that is very different from today. Executive teams across healthcare and life sciences organisations often ask - "do you have a paper setting out the challenges of our future market place? We have a strategy working session next month and need some insights, challenge and a little provocation." This document aims to fulfil that requirement.
In this report, we set out ten provocative statements predicting the world of 2020. Each prediction is articulated and brought to life through a series of portraits which imagine how patients, healthcare professionals and life sciences organisations might behave in this new world. Our predictions lean more towards an optimistic view of the future, although we recognise that many in our industry are sceptical about the constraints and therefore pace of change. We describe the big trends rolled forward to 2020 and some of the constraints that will need to be overcome. We also provide examples and evidence, based on the here and now, that show that the predictions are perfectly plausible, perhaps inspiring and surprising!
