What Will Healthcare Look Like in 2025?

By 2025, patient-doctor relationships and healthcare delivery will look radically different, according to a forecast by the Institute for Alternative Futures. Working with more than 50 national healthcare leaders, the Institute created four scenarios to show what primary care might look like in 2025. The scenarios take into consideration the nation’s economic challenges, political polarization, and opportunities afforded by technological advances and new delivery systems. Clem Bezold, Institute for Alternative Futures chair and senior futurist said, “In all four scenarios, we forecast that electronic records will become ubiquitous. Community health centers will give high-quality care to low-income people, and a small persistent group of affluent will receive great fee-for-service concierge healthcare. You will see more virtual care, personal health avatars and doctors operating remotely.”
