  • 6. Let’s build a smarter planet: HealthcareFor healthcare organizations, this means finding a way to leadin a new environment shaped by four key factors.SUSTAINABILITY CONCERNSHealthcare’s share of country budgets continues to increase, threatening competitiveness and financialstability. At the same time, stakeholders expect greater value, better outcomes and dramaticimprovements in efficiency.PATIENT AND CONSUMER EXPECTATIONSMore informed consumers are demanding greater value for their healthcare dollars—and governmentsare demanding accountability for healthcare expenditures. Hospitals will be increasingly measured byclinical performance and the cost of care.NEW HEALTH AND CARE MODELSIncreased use of technology is accelerating changes in how care is delivered and funded, how quality isdetermined and how patients experience care. New health and care models aligned with personal valuesand well-being are signaling a fundamental shift in how healthcare organizations will compete andoperate in the next decade.RESOURCE SHORTAGESHealthcare organizations will experience shortages in care professionals in areas such as prevention,prediction, early detection and treatment, evidence-based medicine and care coordination.Source: “Healthcare 2015 Series,” IBM Global Business Services and IBM Institute for Business Value © 2010 IBM Corporation
