The future of healthcare – the smart digital hospital


The Digital Smart Hospital is the next generation hospital that looks quite different to the hospitals of today, according to Atos Consulting. Rapidly-evolving technologies and growing demands, along with demographic and economic changes, are disrupting hospitals globally. The consultancy’s insight shows that already, a growing number of inpatient health care services are being pushed to the home, community services and outpatient ambulatory facilities; however, many complex and very ill patients will continue to need acute inpatient services. With aging infrastructure in some countries and demand for more beds in others, hospital executives and governments are starting to rethink how to optimize inpatient and outpatient settings, how to best connect with patients and citizens, and how to integrate digital technologies into traditional hospital services to truly create a health system without borders.
