The pressure on US health systems is growing. By 2030, there will be an estimated shortage of 15 million healthcare workers. Furthermore, the population is quickly aging, with over 10,000 people turning 65 daily. The current health system just can’t ensure quality care for these people’s urgent and non-urgent needs. Let alone the threat of another pandemic and the effects of ongoing population health challenges.
It’s a similar story around the world. That’s why now is such an important moment for healthcare innovation that won’t just solve these challenges but fill gaps left by traditional medicine. Join Star’s digital health experts as we help you ideate, execute and launch value-based care products and services.
Be inspired to lead healthtech change
In 2020, digital health adoption accelerated more in one year than the previous ten. Digital health tools like telehealth, remote patient monitoring, voice assistants, health platforms and more deliver value-based, user-centric innovation that empowers patients, providers, payers and everybody in the ecosystem.
Digital health has infinite potential to revolutionize our relationship to healthcare. Both legacy providers, payers and systems along with new entrants seek to create innovative and enduring healthtech products and solutions.
But how do you move from an idea into an actionable and viable plan? The road to healthcare market success is windy. There is significant competition and regulatory and safety considerations that must be factored into any project.
Embrace healthcare industry challenges as opportunities
Healthcare companies suffer from all the same issues as those in other areas. They have to be competitive, agile and forward-thinking. But then you have to layer unique industry challenges around health and safety.
You have to ask yourself key questions like:
- What are the regulatory requirements?

- Are my systems future-proofed for ecosystem evolution?
- Do we have a strong value-based care business model?
