Personal healthcare: Decoding the social factors

August 28, 2020


In brief

The less privileged are most affected by crises

Obstacles to change

Stakeholder silos

When stakeholders operate in silos, it stymies the exchange of information around social needs, costs and available services.

Ineffective collaboration

There has been a lack of well-established operational collaboration between healthcare organisations, social service agencies, and national institutions.

Limited valuation mechanisms

When healthcare payers can’t quantify the costs and value of services rendered, they can’t evaluate financial feasibility or return on social intervention investments.

Short-term financial outlook

While upstream investments in social factors have a much longer horizon for realising cost benefits, often new initiatives are expected to deliver immediate cost savings.

Experience design + advanced analytics = person-centered health

Getting doctors to sustainably buy into digital health could have a big impact on adoption.
