Healthcare systems around the world face a host of challenges. With growing ageing populations, an expanding middle class and rising consumer expectations, healthcare costs are escalating. A divide between rural and urban communities is growing, with people living in rural areas around the world, simply not having access to healthcare they require. With this in mind, we’ve been exploring the concept of Decentralized Healthcare; a world where access to healthcare is provided via innovative mobile access points. Instead of you going to the hospital, how about the hospital coming to you? Come discover how we’re bringing this concept to life in Japan, Rwanda and the United States.
