  1. C3 (Content, Consumerism, Consolidation) are the strategic drivers for healthcare/digital transformation in the coming 5 to 10 years.  Curated Content is a compelling solution for today’s immense challenges in most business areas.
  2. RQC (Risk, Quality, Cost) are essential elements for any value-based model (ACO, MSSP, MACRA, Medicare Advantage, Medicaid managed care/ ACO, Commercial) for managing Population Care/Health involving clinical, non-clinical determinants: social, economic, geographic, environmental.
  3. There are currently multiple ecosystems evolving from Apple, EMR/PHM/ Virtual care vendors, it will be driven by patient-consumer-community in the coming years.
  4. The healthcare will be: retail, cloud, social, mobile interacting with: emerging technologies, and smart data, algorithms, insights in a real-time environment.
  5. There will be a key role for value-added services/ consulting companies focusing on performance measurements beyond typical Health IT, Digital Health product vendors.  It is a marriage between products and services for varied population needs ensuring health outcomes.
