Key visual: health system transformation

Transforming the system of care  

Enable you to build a smart care delivery model that provides ​equitable access to care, no matter where patients are.

Did you know?

50% of the global popolation still lacks access to essential health services.
43% of the world's population need more than one hour to reach their nearest healthcare facility by foot.
38% increase in global health spending is projected by 2050 considering population growth.

Despite significant advancements in healthcare, half of the world’s population still lacks essential health services. Even in countries with advanced healthcare systems, access and affordability remain unequal, and far too often the quality of care someone received depends primarily on where they live. In order to improve access to healthcare and ensure more equitable access to care, steps must be taken to transform care systems. This transformation includes measures to bring healthcare closer to patients with decentralized services, building smartly-connected healthcare systems that foster equity, and embracing digital transformation. By transforming the system of care, the healthcare provider of the future lies not in traditional hospitals, but in an integrated system of care.
