What will healthcare look like in 2030?

In developed countries, life expectancy has increased significantly over the last 50 years. For healthcare, this means more patients than ever before - often with more complex health problems - but at the same time, the healthcare workforce is shrinking.

To meet the growing needs of an aging population, clinical practitioners will need better tools to enable smarter healthcare. It is only now that we are beginning to harness the potential of technologies that lead to earlier diagnostics and more effective interventions.

By 2030, experts predict we will see:

  1. More testing and treatment options outside the hospital. Instead of relying on hospital services, 2030 d will offer more mobile, less invasive and more affordable options.
  2. Real-world data (RWD) to accelerate the introduction of new treatments. Large amounts of data and improved computing power will allow the processing of statistical results for new drugs in real time, unlike the old traditional controlled clinical trials.
  3. Big data datasets will allow the creation of predictive models for chronic disease management. Combining clinical data with other types of data - such as health insurance data, consumer information and environmental data - will help physicians find and connect with patients to help prevent or delay the onset of chronic disease.
  4. High-tech medicine will allow for more personalized treatment plans. Using genomic information to personalize health care plans is a new approach in healthcare today that is moving forward.

The ability to monitor blood glucose or kidney function without taking a blood sample will be widely available.

Providing comprehensive care for people is beginning to blur the line between health and social services. By 2030 we will see
better integrated services, as technology facilitates better communication.

Caring for an aging population will increase healthcare requirements. The real transformation depends on healthcare utilizing the power of technology to enable physicians to diagnose earlier and intervene more effectively, and patients to take a more active role in their health care.
