S3 Ep9: The Future of Health: Blurring Traditional Healthcare Boundaries—featuring Simon Gisby

We need to redefine healthcare for businesses to treat it properly.

In this episode, Simon Gisby, leader of Risk and Financial Advisory, and leader of Healthcare Strategy and Growth Practice at Deloitte Corporate Finance, discusses how to build a business that adds value to healthcare focusing on the customers. He questions what we have defined as healthcare and broadens its definition to cover humans' physical, mental, spiritual, and financial status, amongst other possible environmental determinants. If healthcare were treated as something preventive, taking into account these social determinants would be beneficial, as Simon highlights. He compares and contrasts pipeline and platform businesses, delving into why the industry is moving towards adopting the latter as a path to tackle root causes and positively impact consumers’ outcomes. Simon also mentions how health ecosystems and platforms can address health equity through education and treating care holistically.

Tune in and listen to what Simon Gisby has to say about the future of healthcare with how platform businesses can change health ecosystems for the better!
