Whitepaper: Above and Beyond. Reshaping Healthcare after COVID-19.

How Healthcare-as-a-Service will become a new norm and reshape healthcare delivery

A strategic white paper, developed jointly by Philips and VPS Healthcare, advocates the Healthcare-as-a-Service (HAAS) model that will ensure asset-light, opex-driven systems allowing patients to receive the care they need when they need it without exhausting resources.


The challenges of quickly mobilizing resources to cope with the surge in COVID-19 patients alongside regular patient traffic, forced healthcare organizations to adopt new care delivery methods which are fast becoming the standard norms. However, in order to facilitate and sustain the changes, healthcare organizations need to implement alternative care models. The whitepaper explores the importance of collaboration between various players in the healthcare sector in order to enable a robust HAAS model.

COVID-19 has exposed the limitations of the present healthcare system. Learning from the present crises, we must reinvent and build a robust healthcare ecosystem that would cater to the needs of all the populations in the future. Healthcare-as-a-Service is an ideal model to be adapted. The strategic whitepaper explores and provides insights on how the advised model would armor the ecosystem around the world against any likely health threats such as the present pandemic. We are privileged to collaborate with Philips in bringing this pivotal strategic paper for improving and strengthening the care delivery system. We will be working together with Philips to  adapt to the new realities of the world in the post-COVID-19 era and deliver the best services to communities wherever we operate.

The post-pandemic receptiveness to new ways of working represents an opportunity for various organizations to pool resources and expertise. Together with VPS Healthcare and in line with our purpose to improve the health and well-being of 2 billion people per year by 2025, we are looking at Healthcare-as-a-Service as the way forward. Different players in the healthcare ecosystem can work together to effectively deliver healthcare on-demand. For example, we are in the early stages of exploring a potential partnership between Philips and VPS Healthcare to expand commercial presence in in the Middle East and beyond.
