A combination of unsustainable health care costs, inconvenient access, and substandard outcomes necessitate new approaches to health care. Regulations enabling increased patient choice and megatrends like aging and increasing population further straining the system have pushed new technologies and business models to the market. A range of digital technologies and approaches are being deployed to enable patients to maintain wellness, diagnose diseases earlier, access health care providers remotely, and receive care where they choose, such as in their own homes. We analyze the technologies, regulations, business models, and strategies that bring these solutions to market to understand how to profit from the new digital approaches emerging as the health care shifts from disease-centric to patient-centric model.
