Digital disruption is shaking the healthcare industry, and its impact is felt differently by all major stakeholders – payers, providers, manufacturers and distributors of medical supplies. So far, healthcare has been the only remaining industry that has not yet felt the rapid impact of digitization on commerce, banking, and the media. However, consumer acceptance of digital technologies, regulatory reforms, and a changing reimbursement model are forcing health care actors.
Digital healthcare innovations are permeating every corner of the healthcare industry, offering incumbents new ways to combat declining margins, labor shortages, and rising costs. But digital transformation also poses a threat to those who move slowly as new entrants rely on their digital skills and a lack of existing infrastructure to cut costs and maintain flexibility. Therefore, existing companies are turning to new acquisitions, partnerships and investments to enhance their digital health services.

We identify the role of key industry players – including payers, suppliers, and manufacturers – and how they are affected by the digital disruption of healthcare. We also discuss the most transformative digital health technologies and identify areas of investment that receive the most funding to illuminate the future digital health journey.
