South Africa – 2015 Health Care Outlook

Across the globe, governments, health care delivery systems, insurers, and consumers are engaged in a persistent tug-of-war between competing priorities: meeting the increasing demand for healthcare services and reducing the rising cost of those services. And rising they are. As the economy recovers from prolonged global recession, health spending is expected to accelerate, rising an average of 5.2 percent a year between 2014 and 2018, to $9.3 trillion. This increase will be driven by the health needs of aging and growing populations, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, emerging-market expansion, infrastructure improvements, and treatment and technology advances.

Deloitte’s new report, 2015 global health care outlook: Common goals, competing priorities, examines the current state of the global healthcare sector, describes the top issues facing stakeholders, provides a snapshot of activity in a number of geographic markets, and suggests considerations for the future.

Key content includes:

  • Recent trends that have fuelled the sector have also resulted in a mixed outlook for the sector’s future in the long term.
  • Challenges and opportunities emanating from the major issues that healthcare stakeholders face in 2015 include cost, adapting to market forces, transformation and digital innovation, and regulations .
  • Individual market updates from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, India, Japan, Middle East, South Africa, Southeast Asia, United Kingdom, and the United States.

It is imperative that healthcare organisations gain a clear understanding of the forces impacting today’s market as they transformation their organisations and seek to position themselves for the future.
