||What the COVID-19 crisis has made abundantly clear is that the current healthcare ecosystem is ill-prepared to deal with the type of healthcare needs that will be typical of the 21st Century. With an aging global demographic that will put more than half of the world’s population in the 60+ age group by 2060 the world’s real healthcare crisis has barely begun. The challenge isn’t advances in medicine, the threat of future pandemics, or our ability to develop new pharmaceuticals and therapies, but rather a healthcare ecosystem that pits payer against provider, forces gaming of the system, poorly orchestrated supply chains, and the enormous burden on providers to handle so many of the administrative aspects of healthcare. The best hope for healthcare is to rethink how to refocus every part of the healthcare ecosystem on what it is best at.
