Accenture Digital Health Technology Vision 2017 Webcast

Digital presents unprecedented opportunities to adapt technology to the people that use it in healthcare—health plans, providers and consumers—to improve labor productivity, tailor interactions and empower people to use technology on their terms. Technology is all around us, but we are at the center. And when we design technology for the humans that use it, we will define the future of healthcare.

Get ahead of the top digital trends in healthcare

How will this year’s five trends impact healthcare? Listen to the discussion with moderator Jane Sarasohn-Kahn, health economist and industry advisor and blogger at Health Populi; Mike Redding, managing director with Accenture Ventures, Kaveh Safavi, senior global managing director with Accenture Health; and Lisa Suennen, senior managing director for GE Ventures.

One company that exemplifies technology for people is CVS Health. The healthcare company has transformed from the corner store that fills prescriptions to a provider of affordable basic healthcare services, deeply embedded in their customers’ lives. CVS Health is taking a comprehensive approach to healthcare to enable this shift, deploying technology to put the individual’s health at the centre of their focus. With the company’s smartwatch-compatible mobile app, customers can set personalised reminders for taking their medication, snap pictures of their prescriptions to expedite refills and scan their insurance card so that store clerks are prepared with up-to-date information.i

At the CVS Health-operated Minute Clinics, customers can receive treatment for minor illnesses, flu shots, cholesterol screenings and more than a dozen other medical services—all of which can be booked and paid for online. For people who can’t make it to a physical location, CVS Health is also partnering with various telemedicine services like Teladoc, so patients can receive care via phone or video chat. And CVS Health is even moving into preventative care: The company is partnering with IBM’s Watson for data analysis to predict when a patient will need urgent care. ii

ABOUT THE RESEARCH

ABOUT THE RESEARCH

Every year, the Technology Vision team partners with Accenture Research to pinpoint the emerging IT developments that will have the greatest impact on companies, government agencies and other organisations in the next three to five years. These trends have significant impact across industries, and are actionable for businesses today.

The research process begins with gathering input from the Technology Vision External Advisory Board, a group comprising more than two dozen experienced individuals from the public and private sectors, academia, venture capital and entrepreneurial companies. In addition, the Technology Vision team conducts interviews with technology luminaries and industry experts, as well as nearly 100 Accenture business leaders from across the organisation.

A GLOBAL SURVEY OF 5,400+ BUSINESS AND IT EXECUTIVES

For the third year, we conducted a global survey of more than 5,400 business and IT executives in 31 countries to understand their perspectives on the impact of technology in business, and to identify their technology strategy and priority investments for the next few years. The survey was fielded from November 2016 through January 2017.
