Today’s Healthcare Model is Outdated
Innovation is needed to modernize out-dated care delivery systems and make them more efficient. This could provide better value and improve patient access.
Focused on acute care and communicable diseases, current healthcare systems aren’t optimally managing chronic conditions, causing quality of life and work productivity issues.
To cope with rising rates of chronic diseases, healthcare systems will need to rethink care delivery.
If Europe reorganises care delivery, it might make significant gains in cost-effectiveness, patient quality of life, and unleash human capital.
Shifting Care to the Right Setting
Shifting care from hospitals to homes and the community is an important change in paradigm that will help to solve some of Europe’s healthcare challenges.
Integrated care aims to organise care based on patient needs rather than in specialist silos and involves coordination between primary and secondary care.
