Create breakthrough services, products, and business models
Innovating in Healthcare offers effective approaches for designing, reworking, and implementing innovative healthcare services, products, and business models. It will help anyone working in healthcare service or product development, from hospitals to startups, to question the status quo in healthcare and implement new solutions that lower costs while increasing both quality and access.
Globally, healthcare faces a threefold crisis of unsustainable economics, erratic quality, and unequal access. Just in the U.S., healthcare accounted for 18% of the 2017 GDP and will likely reach nearly 20% by 2025, while hospital-induced deaths have skyrocketed, and tens of millions of people remain uninsured. This book will focus on creating the innovations in healthcare that can meet these needs.
