The global healthcare industry is transforming at a pace never seen before due to factors such as legislation, declin- ing reimbursements and technological innovations. We are seeing a burst of innovation across multiple disciplines, including genomics, biotechnology, robotics, remote and connected care, internet of things or IoT, clinical data inte- gration and more. The impact of these breakthroughs will be profound.At the same time, global healthcare is facing a cost problem. The clinical promise of science and technology-driven breakthroughs is often tempered by the sticker shock of the cost of these new treatments. There is broad recognition that cost increases are unsustainable, yet quality and outcomes remain subpar.
