IDC Health Insights predicts, in their new report “Worldwide Health Industry 2018 Predictions,” that by the end of 2020, 25% of data used in medical care will be collected and shared with health systems by the patients themselves. Frost & Sullivan’s experts are predicting another year of big disruptions, transformations and innovations as the healthcare industry continues to overhaul outmoded business models.

The overall consensus seems to be that 2018 will be a tipping point for mainstream adoption of popular digital health solutions. All predictions point towards a progressing digital economy. Mutaz Shegewi, research director, provider IT transformation strategies, at IDC Health Insights, says:

“Whether it’s through the mastery of working with patient-generated data, blockchain , real-world evidence, etc., it will all come down to an organization’s ability to digitally transform early that will make it more than likely to thrive, than merely survive, in the future.”
