Healthcare: continuously in motion
The Dutch healthcare market is developing rapidly and that brings new challenges. The health care system is the greatest expense for our country with almost 75 billion euros. The pressure to organize care efficiently so that it remains affordable also increases. Supply Value helps healthcare institutions, insurers and providers to deal with the complex issues they are struggling with.
The Dutch healthcare market is characterized by:
- The increasing demand for care due to the aging of the population: 25% of the Dutch population is expected to be older than 65 in 2030;
- The rising health care costs: currently the health care costs amount to more than 95 billion euros per year and they potentially can become unaffordable;
- A shortage of health care employees: in 2019 the expectation is that the personnel shortage in care will increase by 80%.
In recent years, the influence of the Dutch government has declined and the influence of European laws and regulations have increased. In addition, the Dutch population is getting older. In 2035 there is expected to be a four million population of 65+ (versus 3.2 million in 2018). Technological innovations are also developing at a rapid pace, and the position of the consumer is changing. You can access your own medical records and you can measure and track body functions yourself via app's. In addition, there is a shortage of employees in the healthcare sector and more and more responsibilities are being shifted to primary care, such as general practitioners. The costs and risks in healthcare are increasing due to changing legislation and outdated organizational models. These developments require continuous coordination of business operations. Supply Value helps leaders in healthcare collaborate smarter with their supply chain partners, as a result they create sustainable value at lower costs and less risks.
