An article in NEJM Catalyst looks at the major shifts to come over this decade in the design of health systems and health care in general, propelled by digital health, growing consumerism, mounting financial constraints, and accelerated by COVID-19.
The authors conclude:
“It will not be easy to get to this new world, and it will be realized faster in some places and domains than others. However, if payment systems reward organizations and practitioners for doing better, we believe they will find ways to innovate and successful innovations will spread rapidly. Some innovation will rely on digital technology and AI, but much of it will relate to leveraging the techniques of implementation science — the scientific study of implementing research findings in practice, moving care away from hospitals, and bringing together health and social care.”
