What can you look forward to in healthcare in 2019? The debate expects to get hotter between AI vs. Physicians, Consumer vs. Clinical, Human empathy vs. Machine Intelligence as many new players enter the ecosystem We have been writing the predictions for healthcare every year now for the past 10 years. We also review back how we did each year and each year we are getting to be more accurate. The 2018 predictions that were released in December 2017 were almost 98% accurate and each one of them panned out during the course of the year. Globally, 2019 will be a year of value-based care as we expect the ‘outcomes-based care’ focus to globalize. This will trigger maturation of risk-sharing in solution contracting between providers and drug/device original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), driving business value for providers. Furthermore, access to affordable and quality care will be key political agendas for upcoming 2019 elections in emerging markets such as Asia, Africa and, Central and Eastern European countries. As the lines between retail, IT and healthcare industries continue to blur, during 2019, Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon (GAFA) in the West, and Baidu, Ali Health, Tencent (BAT) in East will start to dominate the Individual Care space. Non-traditional digital marketplace providers such as Ali Health, Tencent, Amazon, Google, Apple, Microsoft, and IBM among other will dominate the home health space, providing the required impetus to public health systems to ensure accessibility and affordability of care. We also anticipate future drugs and devices R&D investments will be more targeted to meet the unique needs of emerging markets in Asia. Finally, we anticipate 2019 will be a reality check for two of the most hyped technologies for healthcare of this decade, viz. artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain.
