Collection of Healthcare Predictions & Trends for 2020

** Updated January 23, 2020 **
November has historically marked the start of “Prediction Season” when healthcare experts, thought leaders, consultants, and others with some connection to the healthcare industry share predictions and trends they expect in 2020 and beyond.

For the fifth year in a row – I’m sharing a list of lists I believe are fit for sharing. As you might predict, many of these lists are created by large research and consultancies like Deloitte, Forrester, Frost & Sullivan, Gartner, and PWC. Others come from journalists and industry leaders like Michael Rogers and Dr. Sachin Jain.Note: Some lists are cleverly veiled marketing pieces or other largely worthless itemizations with a click-bait title. These types of lists are not included in my list.
