Creative innovation in healthcare services is happening at a fast pace worldwide as a response to organisational bottlenecks and financial restrictions that the sector has been experiencing since decades. Besides unlucky policy-making, the crisis that many healthcare systems are facing is due to a failure in coping with a set of intertwined and urgent issues: among many other causes, a growing and aging population and radical budget cuts in the overall healthcare expenditure have shown to be central to this crisis.
Drawing a picture of contemporary challenges in health, might also give us some indications on where the disruption should come next. In particular a set of challenges comes from a highly globalized world that is in continuous transformation and under a rising performance pressure. To number a few:
- Increasing demand of healthcare services from a growing and aging population
- Epidemics and sudden health emergencies
- Increasing of nutrition related problems and metabolic diseases
- Unequal access to care and health services
- Increasing number of refugees that have implications for the health systems in many countries around the world
To put it straight, we need a more human healthcare but we lack of resources to do so. Where can we find them? It’s time for a platform/network model of care.
Bamboo enhances and promotes the care of the individual considering not only the medical but also the lifestyle and nutrition sides of the process of care, bringing people (health professionals, family & friends and neighbors) together around someone receiving care.
Bamboo is an application aiming to drive insurance accessibility by galvanizing contributing specialists on a massive blockchain ecosystem with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning embedded technology, delivering versatile & borderless transformative healthcare with the aim to eradicate the health protection gap.
