I've added dozens of additional lists since original post was made on 11/17/17

Have you noticed the recent uptick in predictions and trends about healthcare and healthcare information technology in 2018?

It's the time of year when Christmas decorations invade retail stores and healthcare executives, thought leaders, media pundits, consultants, technology profits (er... prophets,) clairvoyants, pundits and dozens of doyens release their annual predictions and trends about healthcare and healthcare information technology for the following year.


As I've shared in 2015 and 2016, I'm now sharing a post summarizing all the Healthcare Predictions and Trends that I can find for 2018. At least all those that I think have value to the executives, thought leaders and others who typically make the strategic, tactical and operational decisions to ensure the survival of their company in 2018 and beyond. 

My posts from 2016 & 2015 were among my most 'popular' posts of all time, so I thought" "Why not continue a good service?" I hope you find this centralized collection of posts useful. Feel free to comment and share any I've missed.

More To Come


As in previous posts, I’ll update this post with new information as it's released and as I find it.  Unlike the likelihood of many of these predictions, I'm 100% sure there'll be many more predictions coming our way soon. So bookmark this page – or better yet – subscribe to this blog so you’re easily kept in the loop on what to expect in 2018 and beyond.
