Australian Healthcare Industry: M&A and capital markets update 2021

The Australian Healthcare industry is continuously evolving to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic, prompting opportunities for growth in specific health services subsectors and challenging the traditional healthcare delivery model in light of lockdown restrictions.

Consumer desires are also playing a vital role in accelerating the pace of change, with patients preferring a more digital and on-demand service where they feel more in control of their health outcomes.

Whilst we are only at the early stages of a digital transformation for the healthcare industry, there are four technologies BDO expects to play an increasing role, including artificial intelligence telehealth, robotics, and blockchain.
