Key insights

  • The emergence of the 'activist payer' – the role of this new breed of healthcare commissioner in shaping system change, driving payment reform and influencing behaviour.
  • The dilemmas facing providers in a changing environment – to transact or transform, to grow or to evolve, hospital or health system, passive partner or active change-agent.
  • Patients as partners – changing expectations, shared decision-making, health literacy, looking beyond the rhetoric to make patient power a reality.


The report concludes with a number of key recommendations and sets out some important next steps that we believe global healthcare systems need to consider in coming months and years.
