As value-based health matures and expands from the physician practice market to the integrated delivery system market the need for integrated industrial strength data aggregation and warehousing, provided by Oracle, with the intellectual property and functionality for population health management, provided by Enli, is critical. Without this integrated capability healthcare delivery systems will be unable to scale their value-based health programs. Despite efforts by the current administration to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, IDC Health Insights believes value-based health will continue to grow and in the next five years become the dominant model for care and the financing of healthcare. Oracle will benefit from the partnership as they continue to build out their "healthcare offerings" to their global clients. Oracle offers global channel opportunities to Enli as well as the data infrastructure to scale Enli's Care Manager application into large complex delivery systems.

Some of the most promising digital solutions have come out of healthcare innovation labs across Europe in the recent years. When partnering with vendors, collaborating across Europe, and evaluating the technology through an academic assessment methodology, the healthcare innovations become sustainable and thereby subject to an enterprise wide adoption and replication on a European scale.

IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Healthcare IT 2017 Predictions

By Lynne A. Dunbrack

The IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Healthcare IT 2017 Predictions provides healthcare executives across the globe a guide to likely future technology and business scenarios. Executives can use this document as input to their IT strategy moving forward. The IDC Health Insights predictions are suggesting that the next three years will be focused on the adoption of disruptive technologies which will enable healthcare digital transformation. The drivers include the rise of computer-based intelligence with the increased adoption of cognitive/AI and robotics. The increased adoption of internet of things (IoT) technology is resulting in the convergence of mobile, social and sensors. The illness burden across the globe is continuing to increase with an aging population, an epidemic of chronic illness and the continued outbreak of infectious diseases will continue to drive healthcare technology innovation and force changes in reimbursement and contribute to shortages of medical and pharmaceutical resources.

As November 8th came to a close and electoral votes were being tallied across the country, the proverbial “shot heard around the world” was heard. Americans dissatisfied with the status quo and insider politics elected Donald J. Trump as the 45th president of the United States. IDC Health Insights reflects on the impact a Trump presidency will have on healthcare and healthcare IT initiatives.

Healthcare IT has traditionally had a technological focus and an administrative design paradigm and is hopelessly outdated in the world of 3rd platform and digital transformation. Digital hospitals of the future, on the other hand, must insist on IT with an organizational focus and a clinical design. Otherwise we fail to support and evolve the healthcare of tomorrow.

To measure your organizations maturity is always a good idea, and as a former CIO of a University Hospital, I have done it several times. Whether it is part of strategy development workshop or just as a tool to highlight your strengths and weaknesses, in order to plan and identify practical areas of development and progress, the maturity assessment is relevant. As a hospital CIO I used maturity models for just that. A tool of strategy and a tool of communication and practical planning.

This IDC Health Insights study analyzes developments in the market of solutions based on computing capabilities embedded into objects, a phenomenon also known as the Internet of Things (IoT).

IDC predicts that the worldwide installed base of IoT endpoints will grow at a rate of 21.4% through 2019 to 25.6 billion endpoints with IDC expecting approximately 30 billion connections in 2020.

Internet of Things have the potential to disrupt the healthcare market, thereby an innovation accelerator and a driver of new business models. The implementation of Internet of things technologies in the healthcare sector are growing rapidly and the maturity of different use cases will increase faster than traditional technologies. Furthermore, IoT technologies and applications can be separated and isolated from other applications, making them ideal for pilot tests and further learning within the hospital and between sectors in an integrated care setting,

    Yes, the ACA will not be repealed entirely. However, they will use reconciliation within the budget process to remove the portions they dislike most.

    Thank you, Brian for your thoughtful comment.  Yes, since this blog was posted Thursday evening, it would appear that Trump is reconsidering his statement of completely repealing the ACA.  In an interview with the Wall Street Journal Friday, he indicated that he would consider keeping the popular ACA provisions such as “the prohibition against…

    Brian Ahier says:
    Health reform will continue under the new administration. The ACA will not, and very likely can not be immediately repealed in its entirety. Congressional Republicans will continue to advance repeal of the ACA with various alternatives (see the December 2015 Budget Reconciliation package which includes much of Speaker Ryan’s plans) as well as…
