Healthcare Ecosystem

What is the healthcare ecosystem?

The healthcare ecosystem is a complex network of all the participants within the healthcare sector. It is a community that consists of patients, doctors, and all the satellite figures who play a role in the medical care received by the patient or their hospital stay. This can include service providers, customers, and suppliers. Recently, the healthcare ecosystem has grown to include electronic health entities and virtual care providers.

How does a healthcare ecosystem improve healthcare?

The healthcare system delivers the greatest results when all those involved work together. Understanding healthcare as an interconnected ecosystem helps those within the system address resource inefficiencies, eliminate friction in the patient experience, and improve patient care outcomes. When appropriately coordinated, the healthcare ecosystem affords patients a personalized, affordable, and intuitive care experience.
