PREDICTION: 3 waves of change to disrupt health care

Disruptive models of health care delivery are going to eliminate hundreds of billions of dollars in low-value-added activities and create market opportunities for non-traditional entities, according to this white paper.  Here are the coming waves of change:

  • Wave 1 (2010-2016): Patient-centered care
  • Wave 2 (2014-2020): Consumer engagement
  • Wave 3 (2018-2025): Science of prevention

This paper is based on interviews with 25 industry leaders and the input of the advisory board of Oliver Wyman’s Healthcare Innovation Center.  An example of a provider organization that is already morphing to new ways of thinking is CareMore (Cerritos, CA), a medical group that has purchased air conditioners for elderly emphysema patients who were without air conditioning during a heat wave.  That and other innovative thinking has led to a reduction in hospitalization rates and overall member costs.
