Making the Case for Connected Health

Making the Case for Connected Health
Nations around the globe are taking significant strides to adopt healthcare IT as a path toward a connected health future The goals are clear-higher quality, more accessible and cost-effective healthcare - but the path is as intricate and diverse as the countries themselves. A comprehensive Accenture report, Connected Health: The Drive to Integrated Healthcare Delivery, takes an in-depth look at the progress toward connected health in eight countries. The study cites the important dynamics, challenges and lessons guiding each country along its unique journey to more integrated healthcare delivery.

Accenture's Connected Health study combines deep research-interviews with more than 160 healthcare leaders, a survey among more than 3,700 doctors and clinicians, case studies, literature reviews and more - to provide a broad analysis of how health systems can accelerate progress and gain tangible benefits from their connected health initiatives.

Accenture's research shows that these countries all have a vision for connected health - though each is unique - and highlights the similarities and differences in their responses to the growing health crisis. To improve quality and access while trying to control costs, they are all moving, to some degree, toward integrated healthcare.
