    2022 Healthcare Industry Trends

    2022 Healthcare Industry Trends

    With the start of a new year dampened by Omicron and yet another surge in COVID-19 infections, it's hard not to wonder what this "next normal" will look like for healthcare. After chatting with each of Vynamic's heads of sector, Jen, Mindy & Ryan bring it all together to discuss the trends expected to shape the industry this year. With immense cost strain across the system, plan sponsors are tightening budgets and revising benefit constructs (00:53) and consumers are feeling the squeeze. These costs are often hardest felt amongst those facing socioeconomic inequities – and the pandemic has brought the equity imperative front & center (06:57). The pandemic has also precipitated an innovation explosion – particularly as it relates to everywhere care (12:26) – and it seems data is positioned to become the currency of 21st century healthcare (17:41). A booming senior population with eyes on a new aging (23:25) and the proliferation of transformative therapeutics (27:38) means that industrywide change will be needed, soon.View our 2022 Healthcare Industry Trends infographic at https://vynamic.com/insights/2022-healthcare-industry-trends/ (https://vynamic.com/insights/2022-healthcare-industry-trends/).  Podcast Tags: healthcare, health plans, providers, life sciences, health tech, health equity, telehealth, digital health, big data, EHR, Medicare, gene therapySource Links:· https://www.beckershospitalreview.com/pharmacy/drug-prices-soared-by-nearly-4-times-the-inflation-rate-in-5-years-house-investigation-finds.html (https://www.beckershospitalreview.com/pharmacy/drug-prices-soared-by-nearly-4-times-the-inflation-rate-in-5-years-house-investigation-finds.html)· https://www.fiercehealthcare.com/payer/nationwide-out-pocket-spending-grew-10-to-1-650-per-person-2021-expect-to-continue-through (https://www.fiercehealthcare.com/payer/nationwide-out-pocket-spending-grew-10-to-1-650-per-person-2021-expect-to-continue-through)· https://catalyst.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/CAT.20.0569 (https://catalyst.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/CAT.20.0569)· https://med.stanford.edu/dean/healthtrends.html (https://med.stanford.edu/dean/healthtrends.html)· https://rockhealth.com/aging-in-place/ (https://rockhealth.com/aging-in-place/)· https://www.thebusinessresearchcompany.com/report/cell-and-gene-therapy-global-market-report-2020-30-covid-19-growth-and-change (https://www.thebusinessresearchcompany.com/report/cell-and-gene-therapy-global-market-report-2020-30-covid-19-growth-and-change)· https://www.healthaffairs.org/doi/10.1377/hlthaff.2020.01470 (https://www.healthaffairs.org/doi/10.1377/hlthaff.2020.01470)· https://www.fiercehealthcare.com/tech/majority-healthcare-executives-don-t-trust-their-organization-s-data-survey-finds?oly_enc_id=4902E0496778J3Y (https://www.fiercehealthcare.com/tech/majority-healthcare-executives-don-t-trust-their-organization-s-data-survey-finds?oly_enc_id=4902E0496778J3Y)· https://www.advisory.com/daily-briefing/2021/11/17/health-equity (https://www.advisory.com/daily-briefing/2021/11/17/health-equity) For additional discussion, please contact us at TrendingHealth.com (mailto:Hi5@vynamic.com) or share a voicemail at 1-888-VYNAMIC.Mindy McGrath, Healthcare Industry Advisormindy.mcgrath@vynamic.

Great!

Really helpful information!

Need to work on sound quality and content

Sound quality is pretty bad and latest interviews have started to sound more like advertisements rather than discussions. Financial health podcast was especially egregious on that front.
