Healthcare forecast 2018: shifting perspectives
The healthcare landscape continues to evolve – driven by both policy decisions and behaviours at the claims handling level.
In addition, never before has it been as important to consider individual measures against the broader environment which touches the industry – including, in particular, innovation and digitalisation.
In our forecast, we look back on 2017 and recap the main themes that emerged – which includes the discount rate review and wider civil justice reform. Turning to the present day, we consider how the landscape has changed and predict what we are likely to see as the year unfolds. In the space of innovation, we contemplate how ongoing technological changes will impact all healthcare providers, including the NHS and all those involved in the chain of healthcare delivery.
