- Healthcare Services
C-Suite roles will start to reflect the need for organizational leaders in technology – Innovation, Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Voice Technology, etc. Nurses will continue to play a more critical role in hospital informatics and in-house experienced care.
- Healthcare Provider/ Payer
Behavioral healthcare becomes more mainstream. Payers and Providers continue to challenge each other on who provides more value.
- Healthcare IT
Many themes will impact this field, including the familiar ones of patient engagement & experience, AI & data visualization, health information & data security, and increased use of the cloud.
- Healthcare Products
Many of these ideas come from technology and permeated healthcare: mobile applications, health wearables, electronic health records (EHR), non-emergency healthcare transportation, 3D printing, and genomics.
- For-Profit Health
There is the ongoing, organic debate about profitability vs investing in charitable causes, but there are all the advantages of constantly investing in facility and technology upgrades, utilizing in-house legal & consultant resources, and the freedom to invest in external lobbying resources.
- Academic Health
There are many new theoretical techniques and forms of hands-on application, but those might have slow adoptions with the shortage of healthcare professionals and the changing landscape for policy in the US.
- Commercial Real Estate
The supply of commercial real estate in healthcare remains greater than the demand for it. However, the ROI is steady, based on the consistent growth in medical offices and research-based firms. Skilled nursing facilities and hospital investments, followed by senior housing, continue to have lackluster ROI based on their susceptibility to legislation.
