Healthcare IT - Coverage Report Q1 2019

Q1 2019

Policy changes towards patient-centered healthcare, including the transition from fee-for-service to value-based care and the 2019 transparency law requiring hospitals to list standard prices online, have encouraged a revamp of healthcare solutions and organizational needs. The trend towards consumerization has bolstered increased focus on Healthcare Information Technology (HCIT) solutions which are simplified, personalized, and interconnected for tracking and transparency. Despite regulatory hurdles, the HCIT market continues to diversify, as seen by the 2018 activity of Amazon in healthcare last year. Amazon’s scale and leadership will likely drive a new frontier of retail companies into the space.
