Impacts and Recommendations

  • The health and welfare reform policies of many governments seek person-centered digital care as early as 2020, compelling CIOs to collaborate more effectively on digital roadmaps
  • Where central health and welfare funding is to be contested for, CIOs will need to orchestrate delivery programs that are built on new architectures and that clearly demonstrate value
  • The imposed fiscal and temporal health and welfare constraints will demand that CIOs establish and enforce enterprise architecture and vendor management best practices
