How the current pandemic will shape healthcare innovation for the next decade

March 26, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has thrust a number of emerging healthcare trends into the spotlight with a renewed sense of urgency. Memories of the current pandemic and its devastating impact is likely to drive healthcare innovations and investments for the next decade.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed gaps in the U.S. healthcare system and worldwide. Gaps not of technology or resource but rather systemic, communication, and information gaps. Addressing these will require a shift from patient-centric to system-centric innovation models built on scalability, connectivity, and usability.

In a series of white papers and interviews to be published over the coming days and weeks, we discuss with our Ximedica diagnostics experts the development and scaling of high throughput and Point-of-Care (POC) diagnostics, globalization vs localization of a product pipeline with our research and strategy experts, and explore the rising need of system integration in a global healthcare economy. Finally, we bring together a panel of our experts to understand what a shift to system-centric innovation could mean for healthcare innovation and improving access.
