Tech Giants in Healthcare

Tech giants are the primary forces driving digital transformation forward. In the medium to long run these firms, which can exercise exceptional market power, may be able to profoundly change the range of healthcare services offered in the market

place, and indeed reshape the nature of existing healthcare systems. Particularly in case of publicly financed systems that are organized by sectors1 and based on the principle of solidarity, this could lead to a paradigm shift in the way healthcare is shaped, delivered and consumed. The focus of care is shifting from traditional therapy to prediction, prevention and precision medicine. The boundaries between sectors are becoming more permeable, and ultimately dissolve in favor of patient-centered care. In addition, research and day-to-day healthcare are moving closer together, creating opportunities to build learning healthcare systems.
