In the recent years, the healthcare sector has been facing revenue pressures and declining margins owing to infrastructure upgrades and technology advances. As the spending on health care is outpacing all other expenses, consumers in the healthcare sector are looking for affordability to manage their overall expenses. To meet the demand from the target audiences, healthcare stakeholders are necessitating the need for cost reduction measures, such as alternative staffing models, to curtail their administrative and supply costs. Although the healthcare sector is witnessing a promising growth due to the increase in the geriatric population, the market is expected to showcase certain drawbacks including:
- Increasing costs: In the last decade, the spending on healthcare has seen a considerable growth from 2.4 percent in 2015 to 7.5 percent in 2020. To meet the rising demand for quality healthcare, organizations are facing pressure to implement cost-containment measures as a part of their service offerings. Moreover, governments across the globe are imposing stringent regulations to offer reliability in healthcare services to better manage population health and curb the rising costs of health and wellness.
- Innovations: The current years have seen a remarkable growth in the innovations with advances in the treatment patterns in terms of robotic surgery, 3D printing, and implantable devices to target prevention, monitoring, and treatment of health concerns. With the relentless demand for innovations in healthcare, organizations are facing pressures to invest highly in R&D and curtail additional costs.
To address these challenges and offer seamless movement of healthcare products to the target audiences, healthcare providers are in need of a transport network optimization solution.
