||In the next decade converging trends in population health, healthcare workforce, payment reforms, technology adoption and innovation have important implications for future health care delivery. These trends include healthcare workforce shortages, the aging of this workforce, the aging of populations in many societies, increasing health issues, and the rising burden of chronic disease worldwide. These challenges collectively will have significant impact on communities around the world. Health reform in many countries are utilizing payment incentives to shift and refocus collaborations between patients and clinicians to support patient engagement and drive behavioral changes with the underlying intent to reduce the incidence and prevalence of chronic disease. Access challenges are inherent when qualified healthcare professionals are not co-located and accessible to populations in need of their services. Quality, risk, and safety threats exist and growing. Patients attempt to fulfill their care needs however possible and seek care seek care across unconnected locations and multiple healthcare providers. Disjointed communications and incomplete patient health information and visibility occur as a result of siloed, unqualified or inadequate data and services. Technology and innovative care models provide the promise of overcoming these challenges and provide enabling mechanisms for increased, efficent delivery of limited health care services and access to healthcare services.
