“Shifting consumer preferences and behaviour, the integration of life sciences and healthcare sector, rapidly evolving digital health technologies, new talent and care delivery models, and clinical innovation continue to be top of mind for healthcare executives globally,” says Dr Stephanie Allen, Deloitte’s Global Public Health Care & Social Services Leader, and author of the report.

“How they respond to these challenges while continuing to address the pandemic will be critically important in 2022,” she notes.

Here are six key issues shaping the future of global healthcare, according to Deloitte’s findings.

1. Health equity has become a priority

Health equity is a top concern for healthcare executives and organizations, the study found. Senior leaders recognize that achieving a mix of clinical, mental, social, emotional, physical and spiritual health is important and influenced not just by healthcare, but also by social, economic and environmental factors. However, Deloitte’s report notes that widespread disparities and discrimination keep certain populations from achieving well-being. The report highlights how COVID-19 has shed light on health equity initiatives by making them a priority.

Deloitte recommends several steps that healthcare organizations can take to define their health equity strategy. This approach needs to expand across four domains: the organization, its offerings, its community and its ecosystem, according to Deloitte’s report.
