2020: Our View on the Year Ahead

2020: Our View on the Year Ahead

Editors-in-Chief for HealthManagement.org share their views on what to look out for in 2020 healthcare management.


Alexandre Lourenço, our Editor-in-Chief (EiC) for EXEC and President Portuguese Association of Hospital Managers says technology, patient-centred care will continue to play a pivotal role in how healthcare will develop.


“There are a number of key developments that we should start considering in the near future, including but not limited to, areas such as innovative care models, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI), and push on risk sharing contracts. Innovative and integrated patient-centred models of care will continue to emerge. These will be mostly focused on the community and leveraged by the spread of recent technologies (eg remote monitoring). Developments in Big Data and AI will be going on with baby steps. Although some anecdotal evidence will be available, we are still unable to meet the expectations. Introduction of new medicines (mainly in oncology) will take precision medicine to a new level challenging the health system finances and universal access to care. Payers will push for value-based healthcare, and new payment models will gain momentum accordingly. On the market, heavy technology suppliers will continue to push for services contracts, trying to abandon the acquisition model that is highly dependent on capital availability. Also, new players will enter the healthcare sector without having a real impact on the market. Finally, in general, the agenda on healthcare management ‘professionalisation’ will continue to grow and to influence policy makers and other stakeholders.”
