The changing healthcare landscape

Demographic, organisational and resourcing issues are radically changing the global healthcare industry; and we’re only just beginning to understand the impact of recent technological advances – in life science research, medical equipment, and the internet.

However, healthcare businesses are rising to the challenge. Public sector providers are looking for ever greater efficiencies. Healthcare payers are revising business models and becoming more responsive; and pharmaceutical, life science and health IT firms are taking advantage of the openings that change always brings.

In Saudi Arabia, the healthcare sector is evolving on the back of rapid advancements in technology, research and development (R&D) in line with global and regional trends. With projected increase in population this will continue to fuel the demand for healthcare in the Kingdom.

The government is encouraging private sector participation in the healthcare sector as the public sector’s role is transitioning to becoming a regulator, as opposed to a provider of healthcare facilities, as highlighted in the National Transformation Programme (NTP) and the privatisation plan.
