Disruptive Innovations in Health Care

Big change creates big value opportunities — if you know where to look

You can feel it happening in the marketplace around us. Retail clinics, medical tourism, technology-enabled self care — disruptive innovations in the U.S. health care system challenge the status quo. These and other new phenomena zero in on unmet needs, leverage new technologies and business models, and deliver enhanced value throughout the health care supply chain. When they work, they change the game. Along with consumerism and health reform, disruptive innovation is one of the three major themes we follow at the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions.
