A transition toward digital and personalized care is well underway even as adoption rates vary, according to the 2022 Future of Healthcare Report by HIMSS and its Trust Partners – Accenture, The Chartis Group and ZS Associates.

The research was conducted in November and December 2021, and it includes responses from patients, providers, payers and health system leaders in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia and New Zealand.

Participants were asked about the shifts, advancements and priorities shaping care delivery, as well as the trends and challenges that have defined the past 12 months and how they will impact the future.

Nearly all U.S. and international healthcare systems surveyed intend to be in some stage of digital transformation by 2027. But systems that don’t launch or advance quickly enough may find younger patients have moved on to rivals and retailers that were faster to embrace modern care models.
