Healthcare clients in the Middle East face a new challenge with the ongoing transformation of the healthcare industry in the GCC.
GCC Healthcare Market
– Designed along 1950s western lines- large specialist hospitals
– Can only deliver high cost care in episodes
– Perceived quality problems with low trust in local provision by nationals and expats
– Increasing cost pressure
– Poor data availability and productivity measures
– Major capacity gaps, especially in workforce, which when filled will increase costs
Rising healthcare costs
Early onset of long-term conditions.
Increase demand for new technologies.
Privatization is seen by many GCC governments as a key answer to many of these problems, which creates a unique opportunity for healthcare reform and development across the Region for providers looking to expand their services and build their capability.
