 The Digital Insurer reviews IDC’s Report on IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Healthcare Predictions

Ten bold predictions, with IT implications, from IDC researchers Cynthia Burghard and Lynne Dunbrack 

Here are the ten predictions:

  1. By 2018, there will be a doubling of ransomware attacks on healthcare organizations.
  1. By 2019, there will be a 50% increase in the use of robots to deliver medications, supplies, and food throughout the hospital.
  1. By 2019, 60% of healthcare applications will collect real time location data, clinical IoT device data, and embed cognitive capabilities to discover patterns, thereby freeing up 30% of clinicians’ time.
  1. By 2020, 20% of payers will offer personalized benefits with options for a consumer to dynamically reduce premium and/or alter deductible/co-pay by disclosing personal health data.
  1. By the end of 2018, payers will have saved $1 billion globally through implementation of robotic process automation (RPA) tools, skillsets and process reengineering.
  1. In 2017, patient engagement across the life science/health care ecosystem will jump from passive to active.
  1. By 2020, 70% of the developed nations will homogenize health insurance with the rest of the world, moving to replacing self/employer-based options with expanded government sponsorship.
  1. Seeking a passive way to measure patients’ vital signs and other biometrics, more than 40% of healthcare organizations across the world will use IoT-enabled biosensors by 2019.
  1. By 2020, care plan adjustments will be made in real time with cognitive/AI using data from wearable devices, resulting in 20% more patients being engaged in their health.
  1. By 2018 drug makers will double their investment in analytics focused on HCP data to reach millennial and Gen-X doctors the way they prefer it – electronically.

Digital Insurer's Comments

The first prediction – the doubling of ransomware attacks on healthcare organizations – complicates the nine predictions that follow. Very bullish on technology in healthcare, we’re also realistic about the adverse impact of security concerns on technology adoption.

Security issues notwithstanding, we’re on the verge of more and better healthcare for less out-of-pocket – an absolute good.
