If the past two years of global pandemic have shown us anything, it is the vulnerability of healthcare systems – and us all – during a time of stress and strain.
It has been proven that our healthcare provision can be both fragmented and fragile. The cracks in our creaking infrastructure can no longer be papered over. The access to and affordability of healthcare in many regions is simply not equitable.
These glaring issues, as well as the efforts of those in the healthcare sector and the medical gases supply chain, must not go unchecked – nor must they be forgotten once Covid-19 becomes a distant memory.
At a societal and governance level, we must strengthen global and local healthcare systems to deal with future threats and pandemics. We must also strive for greater access for all to tackle pre and post-pandemic healthcare challenges like pneumonia.
For the medical gases and equipment industry, there is a renewed challenge as it faces up to its role at the centre of the public health architecture. How can companies make a bigger societal impact and be ready for future issues? What do investors materially look for, beyond the bottom line? And how can companies remain profitable when competition rises and paying power is limited – where are the opportunities?
The time is now…
The past two years has on one hand pulled at the frayed threads of supply chains that had for so long gone unnoticed; on the other, it has demonstrated the great effort, endeavour and ingenuity in rising to escalating demands and meeting new challenges.
Who could have foreseen the collaborative international efforts to deliver medical oxygen to India during its darkest hour? How would the initial roll-out of vital Covid vaccines have been administered, without an innovative cold chain to transit those medicines?
We rightly question how many lives were needlessly lost, but we must also highlight how very many were saved too. We have seen that heroes don’t always were capes or even medical gowns.
With the lessons all but learned from the past two years of this pandemic, the time is now to put those lessons into practice and to move forward into a new era in medical gases and healthcare, a world beyond Covid.
Huge challenges remain. Even bigger opportunities await. And there is still much to be done if we are to reach the next level in healthcare for all and realise the opportunities in technology, digitisation and a more collaborative future.
Join gasworld and an esteemed panel of international speakers spanning healthcare, public and private sectors as we explore Next Level Healthcare: A World Beyond Covid
