Economist Impact Report Series (part II): Pathways to Health System Resilience
Shifting economic realities, some of which have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, drive the need for new healthcare delivery approaches.
“Pathways to health system resilience” is the second article in the Economist Impact led Roadmap to Resilience report series, commissioned by Philips. It explores some of the pre-existing vulnerabilities the pandemic has exposed, and the different strategies and pathways for building more resilient health systems in the future.
A nationally-led service works better than a fragmented one. The trend in New Zealand’s reforms is to have more centralisation of policy and process with local delivery in partnership with communities.”

Chief Science Advisor at the Ministry of Health, New Zealand
This article focuses on the need to drive new healthcare delivery approaches such as:
Moving towards value-based care, to improve patient health outcomes, while health systems benefit from cost savings
Expanding accessible healthcare, particularly in rural and more remote settings to build resilience and ensure equity
Increasing efforts to ensure patients receive preventative and primary health care
