Rising costs, expanding market demand and increasing customer dissatisfaction will characterise healthcare in this decade and help redefine the roles of patients, providers and payers. Simply put, healthcare organisations face a growing imbalance of supply and demand. On the demand side is a large population of aging patients in deteriorating health who demand more services, pharmaceuticals and medical breakthroughs. The supply side, however, is hampered by a shrinking pool of investment capital, a shortage of willing caregivers, and aging facilities straining under the current volume of patients.
