This report is an optimistic take on what a health system would look like in 2030 if new knowledge is used differently and more people play a role in managing health. The four axes of change set out in the report are: the promise of precision medicine; a health knowledge commons stretching beyond traditional actors; a system powered by more people and new kinds of relationships; and taking advantage of contemporary behavioural insights. The first two concentrate on how new kinds of knowledge could be used differently:
- Imagining where new kinds of medical information about individuals will come from, as well as how it is interpreted in stratified care.
- Understanding the changing ways that people manage their own health information and new digital platforms for supporting patient–led research and care.
The second two concentrate on how more people will be involved in managing health:
- Thinking through the possibility of a social movement for health: people being trusted to have a more active role in their own health and to look after others, supported by the NHS, as well as people supporting health services as volunteers.
- Exploring how insights into human behaviours can help us to redesign health services, products and treatments in a way that reflects better how people live their lives and make choices.
