Healthcare is the worlds largest industry today - it is three times larger than the banking sector. After lagging behind for almost five decades, this industry is revitalizing and transforming itself faster than any other vertical.


Improving the healthcare system requires simultaneous pursuit of three aims (commonly referred to as the Triple Aim): enhancing the experience of care, bettering the health of populations and reducing per capita costs of healthcare. For this to happen, some major seismic shifts will need to take place. Today healthcare is about the following:

  • Wellness
  • Prevention
  • Consumer centric and integrated
  • Participatory: patients helping other patients
  • Personalization & Precision
  • Outcomes
  • Engagement
  • Digitization
  • Consumerization
  • Interoperability
  • Continuum of Care

Through Frost & Sullivan’s research, we have identified nine areas that are expected to see the most disruption and transformation within the eco system.
