Welcome to Tales of transformation

Welcome to Season 2: Exploring the future of health

Technology has transformed almost every aspect of our lives in the past 20 years, leading to large-scale disruption in many industries. Is the life sciences and health care industry next? This season of Tales of Transformation explores the future of health— a future defined by radically interoperable data; open, secure platforms; and personalized artificial intelligence that enables hyper-engaged and empowered consumers to own their journey of health.

Episode 1

Health in 2040

In 20 years, the health care industry as we know it today may no longer exist. Traditional industry boundaries are dissolving while exponential change is accelerating the pace of disruption—and propelling the industry toward a dramatically different future. One that will be defined by radically interoperable data, open yet secure platforms, and personalized artificial intelligence that will enable consumers to own their own journey of health. Tune in to this episode to learn more.

A lot of data doesn’t mean complexity. It is only complex when you don’t have the tools to understand it and the tools to change your processes. People respond very well once they have the power to understand the data at hand.

Are patients out of patience?

Tomorrow’s health care consumer won’t accept today’s limitations. And they’re becoming increasingly influential drivers of change. Listen to this episode to hear more about the transition from consumer-centric to consumer-driven care and the role that patients will play in the future of health.

What we’re seeing is consumers take ownership of their data. They’re making choices based on value and I think that’s what is driving fundamental transformation. Democratizing this data really fundamentally changes this industry.

Is health care disruption inevitable?

The pace of disruption today is unprecedented. You don’t have to look far to see the impact of disruption in other industries—from banking to retail and travel—and health care is no exception. What trends could have the biggest impact in disrupting life sciences and health care?

 

There’s real oxygen in the ecosystem for someone to do it differently, to do it better. And that’s the heart of disruption.

A radically interoperable future

In our “always-on” world filled with endless data, consumers have come to expect seamless, personalized experiences from every industry—and that extends to health care. But there’s a disconnect between consumer expectations and the reality of care delivery today. Tune in to this episode to hear how data interoperability could help close that gap.

Interoperability is probably one of the largest technology challenges that will really be key in opening us to a whole new frontier because it will open the aperture of how information flows.

Season 1: Technology trends transforming life sciences and health care

Episode 1: Digital reality

Is health care ready?

What if a patient could put aside pamphlets and actually see the impact a diet could have on his or her state of health? What if a surgeon could train or prepare for a complex procedure by simulating it first in a 360-degree 3D simulation? Digital reality is no longer only a concept attributed to the science fiction realm. The immersive technology of augmented and virtual reality is now being applied to many business applications across industries, making these scenarios increasingly realistic. Explore the potential for digital reality in life sciences and health care.

Hospitals and health care organizations and providers specifically are beginning to see real clinical utility with virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) and I like to think about that utility across a number of different categories. One is for the physician or clinician experience—that includes things where the administrative burden of being a clinician or being a physician is reduced.

Episode 2: Blockchain

Use cases in life sciences and health care

Blockchain is no longer the new technology kid on the block, but has its potential been fully realized? Or are we barely scratching the surface? What are the possibilities for blockchain—or blockchains—across the life sciences and health care industry?

When I think of the ultimate use case within the provider side of health care, it's this idea of truly having a distributed ledger of patient-level data, distributed across health systems that interact with that patient and yet the patient owns the key to that data…And so really the ultimate opportunity I think around blockchain is to have this patient data broken into blocks and distributed and managed across the health system.

Episode 3: Blockchain

Breaking down industry silos

Blockchain in life sciences and health care: Are we looking at a revolution or an evolution? This episode takes a more holistic view of how blockchain can break down industry silos and enable collaboration, coordination, and connectivity across life sciences and health care stakeholders. Learn about the opportunity for blockchain to link the industry around the spectrum of care.

We've reached a point now where I think we've gone beyond sort of the art of the possible. People are really looking to understand practically, what can I do? An interesting place for momentum is within the organization. I've seen some of our life sciences clients start to use blockchain within their internal finance organizations, to manage those processes more effectively, more efficiently, and more securely.

Episode 4: No-collar workforce

Technology’s role in the future of work

Emerging technologies, like machine learning and artificial intelligence, are driving a shift in life sciences and health care to an augmented, no-collar workforce—a powerful collaboration between humans and technology where the unique strengths of both can be leveraged. Listen to the episode to learn more about the benefits of open talent models and the future of work in life sciences and health care.

There's been an explosion in contingent work and a movement away from the traditional employment model of full-time or even part-time as we move more to a continuum of workers and work arrangements. And so the term no-collar workforce is really a reference to this wave as of disruption and innovation and it's how we'll get work done going forward.

Episode 5: The new core

Driving operational efficiencies

Investments in “core” technology may not be the most glamorous, but they’re some of the most important. What’s driving life sciences and health care organizations to focus their resources on automating core back-office processes? Listen to this episode to learn more about the transition to a digital core and how back-end improvements can help enable front-end innovation.

Traditional supply chains are linear in nature and typically go through this structured plan source-make-deliver type of support model. And what we're seeing now with life sciences companies is that the business models are fundamentally changing…A dynamic supply network is one that allows for more efficient management of inventories, allows for increased visibility into the supply chain at each step of the process and also helps companies drive operational efficiencies.

Episode 6: The power of data

Transforming the future of care?

The sheer volume of data available today can often be overwhelming. But there’s a difference between available data and accessible, relevant data. The ability to access and convert relevant data into actionable insights is key to taking the power of data and analytics to the next level. Listen to this episode to explore what’s needed to unleash an insight-driven life sciences and health care industry, and how data and analytics can help reduce costs, improve quality, and increase consumer engagement.

The health care industry itself lags quite a ways behind other industries in terms of what I call data use maturity, but the question you’re really asking is, “Why is this the case?"...Health care lags not because of the technology, it lags because the industry as a whole continues to be what we call “document-centric.”
