Defining the character of the Future Hospital

TASC assisted the steering committee in characterizing the Future Hospital
  • Business Dilemma:
    The Ministry of Health aims to produce an organized guideline for future planning processes. A steering committee that includes senior officials and experts, with methodological and professional assistance from TASC, was established to define the character of the future of the Israeli hospital.


  • Process:
    Our team conducted interviews and consulted with more than 50 experts in the industry while accompanying the steering committee, which included more than 20 health experts. In addition, TASC mapped and learned long-term trends in topics such as morbidity, digitization, and patient experience. The process ended with  a written summary characterization document.


  • Strategic solution & impact:
    TASC performed in-depth reviews and mapping of the major trends that are expected to manifest in a wide range of topics over the next decade: changes and transformations in the patient experience; human capital needs in the future hospital, including employee-training needs; future patients in major centers; the impact of digital transformation, innovation and research; a continuum of care; and relationships between hospitals and the community. The team built projections for the next decade and onward, which included an increase in hospitalization versus population growth, future service needs, hospital inpatient mix, transboundary epidemiologies and changes in investment in medical centers, formulating a possible service deployment model, and recommendations for needed changes in pricing models and budgeting. The recommendations were submitted to the Director-General of the Ministry of Health and presented to a broad range of health stakeholders.
