McKinsey & Company have produced an article titled - Health Systems: Improving and sustaining quality through digital transformation. It’s well worth a read.

The authors identify that digital innovation can transform healthcare in three main ways:

  1. By improving care-delivery models through seamless data and information exchange.
  2. By harnessing the power of data through advanced analytics and transparency. 
  3. Through process automation. 

They identify that healthcare systems, to accelerate digitisation, should seek to:

  1. Enhance data and modernise data infrastructure, management, and access. 
  2. Create incentives to support new practices and mind-sets.
  3. Adjust legal and regulatory frameworks to improve data exchange. 

And we like this quote:

“Legacy systems are unlikely to be able to cope with these demands, so a new, modern data infrastructure will be needed. One possible model could be an open cloud-based platform aggregating data from different sources, with an operator who manages the infrastructure and data access, promotes data collection and quality, and provides a means for patients to manage their informed consent.”
