Welcome back to another appointment with Dispotech blog news. Today, in light of the many changes we are facing due to of Covid-19, let's analyse what the future of healthcare will look like in light of the pandemic that has plagued the entire world - and that we are still facing. To do so, we are availing ourselves of an article published on mckinsey.com.
The Coronavirus has left behind a trail of incalculable damage and dramatic loss of life. What is certain is that our world and lifestyle has irremediably changed; of course, also the way of how and where all practices relevant to health care will change - actually, they have already changed .
The usual rules and operating practices are under the magnifying glass and will definitely change: the highest priority for healthcare facilities around the world right now, is to guarantee the utmost safety both to patients and caregivers. Among the most pressing measures to be adopted is undoubtedly better training for health care personnel and a massive supply of personal protective equipment (ppe) for both patients and health care workers.
If we consider that Covid-19 will remain a priority for at least 18-24 months, it is necessary to apply all available scientific knowledge and carefully implement all necessary precautions. It is basically a question of adapting to a new "normality", accepting the challenges that will have to face in the health sector and knowing how to seize opportunities.
The source article identifies 3 decisive changes in the healthcare world:
- new paradigms for infrastructure, geographical distribution of suppliers and service facilities;
- operational excellence, a key aspect in the future of healthcare;
- new opportunities for growth.
As we have seen in these difficult months of lockdown, the pressure on the health care world has been considerable. It is necessary, therefore, to continue to work with seriousness and dedication to increasingly improve safety in hospitals and all other healthcare facilities.
