Social Innovation in Healthcare Whitepaper

The Healthcare sector continues to face social problems caused by the rising costs of healthcare and ageing population. Poor and inconsistent quality of care, as well as inaccessibility to timely care, is at the forefront of global issues facing the Healthcare industry today.

In Healthcare, the question is how we can provide high-quality care to every patient globally, in a sustainably affordable way. And furthermore, how can we deploy innovation to solve the growing challenges driven by ever rising costs of care and ageing population?

In our previous Whitepapers (http://www.hitachi.eu/en/sib/whitepapers/), we defined Social Innovation as “the deployment of technology and new business models to bring about real positive change to the lives of individuals and societies, creating shared value.” The whitepapers highlight the specific mega trends that are impacting the global energy and transport & mobility sector, the challenges and opportunities for Social Innovation, as well as quantifying the relevant opportunities and their impact.
